You won't be disappointed!
This is a tender, generous movie that likes its characters and presents them as real people, full of flaws and strengths.
In other words,this film is a surreal ride.

Although I seem to have had higher expectations than I thought, the movie is super entertaining.
This is a pretty interesting change from CW show focusing more on the animated side of things then live action.Season 1 of Vixen was a bore but Season 2 is a massive improvement. We get to see all the legends in this. I hope if there is a season 3 we get to see Supergirl. I like the fact that all of the actors from CW got to reprise their roles and get a chance to do voice acting.
I really wanted to like this. Being a big DC fan and a fan of their animated movies I had high hopes for it. However Vixen is set in the WB/DC universe and sorry but all of those shows are terrible. As far as the movie goes, it is very unremarkable and very forgettable. The pacing of the film is odd too since originally it was released in 5 minute increments.. I would advise a hard pass on this one..
This show serves to introduce us to the character of Mari McCabe / Vixen, as well as set her up for her appearance in Arrow this season (Season 4, Episode 15 - Taken).The animation is amazing and the voice acting is top notch.Stephen Amell and Emily Rickards from Arrow reprise their roles as well as Grant Gustin and Carlos Valdes from Flash.A lot of the stuff that Vixen can do would be VERY hard to pull off on a TV budget, which is why introducing her this way is so important.I'll admit that the 5 minute segments can be a bit annoying at times, but it gives that "need" for the next chapter so all-in-all, the formula works.Season 4, Episode 15 - Taken of Arrow will continue where this left off so if you care to get the whole story and want to know how Ollie and Mari know each other, then this is a MUST watch.HIGHLY recommend !!!
Don't expect to get attached to this show. Vixen is a 5 minute per episode show, which is basically an episode of a regular show cut into 5 minute parts. By the time you do feel some emotional involvement to the story you get to see the subtitles.Furthermore, quality of the artwork of the show isn't all that remarkable - its just about what you'd expect from DC and Warner Bross. The only good thing to report on the artwork is Vixens new appearance. She actually looks like a regular person, as opposed to her bitchy glamor look from before.As for the Story, the show is building up slowly, taking their time to tell a tale. this could be a good thing if an episode would last 20 to 30 min, but tanks miserably with a 5 minute show. You get what is happening in the story, but without the emotional dept you would feel from a longer episode. My advice - wait until every episode has aired and watch them all in a row, and maybe, just maybe, you'll manage to get some joy out of this show.
