Robot Chicken DC Comics Special Review

We all love the DC universe. From Batman to Bane to, Aquaman? Yes all of our favorite characters show up in this special blu-ray from the creative minds who brought you the claymation show on Adult Swim. This collection of shorts is packed full of over 2 hours of bonus content, being that the actual show is only 23 minutes. You will get to see all the superheroes that you love, and even some that don’t exist, which at times got kind of strange. The blu-ray has some pretty noticeable voices behind the clay figures; NPH as Two-Face; Alfred Molina as Lex Luthor; Neil Fillion as the Green Lantern; Megan Fox as Lois Lane, along with some other well known actors.


This comes at you in a typical 1080p format. The colors are crisp, and the figures are pretty clear. The motions of the characters never blurs and you can see the detail that was put into the creation of each character made of clay. Overall it was a pretty standard picture for your viewing pleasure.


The audio is a Dolby TrueHD surround sound. The audio is pretty standard for a Blu-ray disc as well. The voices are clear and never drowned out. There really aren’t any huge special effect sounds that will blow you away, but for a mostly dialogue based show, it definitely is a good sound.

5.2 Questions:The creators answer seven questions.

I found this kind of funny at parts and kind of repetitive at others. The Bane and Batman thing was pretty humorous, as well as the Aquaman skits. I personally have not seen many of these, but I know it is a very popular show to some. The Special Features really make this collection pack more of a punch. Overall if you are a fan of the show pick it up.
