Movie Review: LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Aquaman – Rage of Atlantis (Blu-ray Combo Pack)

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Aquaman – Rage of Atlantis was directed by Matt Peters from a script by Jim Krieg and Jeremy Adams. The voice cast features opposing forces Dee Bradley Baker and Jonathan Adams as Aquaman and Atrocitus, respectively. The film also stars LEGO DC Super Heroes core Justice League voice cast members Troy Baker as Batman, Nolan North as Superman, Grey Griffin as Wonder Woman (and Lois Lane), and Khary Payton as Cyborg.

Alyson Stoner returns to her Young Justice role as Batgirl/Barbara Gordon; Eric Bauza recreates his role as Jimmy Olsen from LEGO DC Super Heroes: The Flash; Cristina Milizia is back as Green Lantern/Jessica Cruz, as originally heard in DC Super Hero Girls; and Scott Menville reprises his Teen Titans/Teen Titans Go! role as Robin/Damian Wayne. New to the LEGO DC COMICS Super Heroes films are the voices of Susan Eisenberg as Mera, Fred Tatasciore as Lobo, and Trevor Devall as Ocean Master. Executive producers are Jason Cosler, Robert Fewkes, Jill Wilfert, Sam Register and Brandon Vietti.

Aquaman must battle foes in the air, on land and in the depths of the Seven Seas, along with some help from The Justice League, to save the day. In LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Aquaman – Rage of Atlantis, the King of Atlantis must make some difficult decisions to ensure the future of his ocean realm. Under attack from Atrocitus and the Red Lanterns, Aquaman realizes he must relinquish his sovereignty and go on a journey to regain his confidence before returning to his rightful throne. Along the way, Aquaman reunites with the Justice League – including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and newest member Jessica Cruz/Green Lantern – to conquer Atlantis’ latest enemy and reemerge as the ruler of the Seven Seas.

The movie follows Aquaman who takes the lead with the Jutice League against Atrocitus and his Red Lantern minions that have plans to steal the water from the planet with a giant slurp. Atrocitus has invaded Atlantis and turned Aquaman’s people against him and they’re all full of red rage. Aquaman has to give the throne to his brother Ocean master who has actually teamed up with Atrocitus untl the Red Lantern turns on him. The excitement turns into an otherworldly adventure with the Justice League as they travel to another planet to escape the Red Lantern attack and this is where they come up with a plan to stop Atrocitus. When they finally return to Earth they find a way to free Atlantis from the red rage influence and ultimately defeat the latest Red Lantern threat. Green Lantern newbie Jessica Cruz is still in training as well as working on her own confidence when it comes to battling enemies plus Lobo pays a visit and ends up leanding a help hand to ultimately save the day. In the end, Aquaman not only reclaims his throne in Atlantis but he also learns how important he is to the Justice League.

The front of the packaging features the artwork you see at the top of the page and the back includes movie details, more artwork and specs. Each disc features some etched artwork that includes the title character and movie logo. Inserting the disc, the menu screen was simple and easy to navigate. The picture and sound quality for the high-definition disc were crisp and clear. The picture and sound quality for the standard-definition disc were really good. I didn’t have any issues with the video and audio. The Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD releases of LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Aquaman -Rage of Atlantis feature an exclusive LEGO mini-figurine of Jessica Cruz/Green Lantern (while supplies last).

Bottom line is, LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Aquaman -Rage of Atlantis was a cheesy good action adventure and another fun entry into the animated LEGO/DC Universe. For so many years Aquaman was the butt of the jokes when it came to the Justice League and the superhero is finally getting his due. The story is about leadership, teamwork and building confidence to overcome the odds and this time the King of Atlantis gets to lead the charge against this latest threat but he’s also part of the comic relief and it works just right. Aquaman leads the Justice League against the Red Lantern assault as well as deal with some family drama and even a little mischief from the main man, Lobo. Something else I like about these LEGO/DC movies is the animation style and everything stays the same for this latest superhero adventure. LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Aquaman -Rage of Atlantis will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital) on July 31st and will make a fun watch for the kiddos.
