release year: 2006
genre: animated superhero action
viewing setting: home DVD, 8/31/06
synopsis: In the face of an alien invasion, a team of super-powered heroes must learn to work together and save the world.
impressions: This is a pretty good adaption of the comic book The Ultimates (which is itself a re-imagining of the Avengers, but in modern times instead of the 1960s.) The various team members have to overcome their own problems as well as a lack of teamwork, and there's a lot of action. I was highly entertained.
things to watch for: the big fight with the Hulk
something this movie has that no other movie has: aliens who store things inside their bodies
acting: n/a, but the voices were generally very well-done
final word: Great, entertaining adaption of a great comic book.
