Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths

DC Comics brings us a new straight to DVD movie featuring the Justice League and a tale of the DC multiverse where they are recruited by a "good" Lex Luther to help take down criminal superheroes from a parallel earth. The voice talents include William Baldwin as Batman (really?), Mark Harmon as Superman, and Chris Noth as Lex Luthor with James Woods as Owlman and Gina Torres as Superwoman. Any DC story dealing with the "mirror mirror" version of the Justice League always seemed lacking to me in the comics and unfortunately the movie suffers the same fate. Why could DC not keep with the actors who have voiced these characters well in the past? The best reveal in the film is how Wonder Woman gets her invisible plan and the DVD extra, DC Showcase: The Spectre written by Steve Niles, made a better film then the DVD's namesake.
