Not nearly as good as the recent Green Lantern: First Flight, but still worth a watch, “Public Enemies’” animation and art are very cool, but the whole film gets dragged down by a lackluster ending and third act. Some of the battles are exceptionally cool, especially those that feature a dozen or so super characters, and the movie definitely shows revererance for the source material. And I really like a lot of the Batman stuff. It just sort of drags a bit @ the finale, and I don’t know, sometimes I just find Superman kind of lame. The voice work is pretty stellar, and the idea is obviously very inspired, but in the end, it didn’t leave me with that “Wow, holy shit. That was cool.” feeling that so much of Bruce Timm‘s work usually results in. I would still say check it out, but only if you’ve already seen First Flight and Gotham Knight, and just need a quick DC animated fix.
