Score: 8/10

While the DC Animated Movie Universe was never as strong as some of DC's other shared TV universes, at least it's given a proper conclusion in Apokolips War. This film takes full advantage of the fact that it's the final chapter in a 15-movie arc. Its narrative veers into some very surprising and compelling directions, and somehow it manages to pay off on loose ends from across the DCU while still chronicling the final battle between the Justice League and Darkseid. The abrupt ending is a bit disappointing, but not enough to diminish the impact of what is easily the best DC Universe Movie since The Flashpoint Paradox.


All-in-all, I can confidently state that "Justice League Dark: Apokolips War" is easily one of, if not the best animated movie in the DC Universe series thus far. The movie has all the character development and action that you can ask for and then some. The script, directing, animation, & voice acting definitely make this one title you will want to have in your DVD/Bluray collection.

Comic Book Resources:

The DC Animated Movie Universe certainly goes out with more of a bang than a whimper in Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, but it's never easy watching fan-favorite characters go down, particularly so brutally. Some of the violence borders on unsavory, and is a bit more than audiences may be accustomed to in a DC animated film. While many of the major players get their opportunity to shine one last time, others are lost in the shuffle. For fans for the long-running franchise, this is a must-watch to close out the overarching story; for those looking for a lighter, more fun diversion, this may not be it.


Score: 4/5

Justice League Dark: Apokolips War is impressive in both size and scope; rounding off the DC Animated Movie shared universe with a bittersweet conclusion. Packed full of team ups, nods to DC lore and genuinely epic moments, longtime fans of the universe will undoubtedly revel in this film. Bring on HBO Max’s live-action adaptation of Justice League Dark!
