Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The action starts immediately in this fun but shallow romp through space and time. It's nice to see JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time feature the return of Dawnstar, played wonderfully by the always-good Laura Bailey. Dawnstar is a decent role model for young girls, but unfortunately, she isn't on screen enough. Wonder Woman also unfortunately gets relegated to the "needing to be saved" role, there's a questionable taxicab scene played for comedy that might be making fun of the accent of taxicab driver, and every problem is quickly solved with violence. Further, there are some supervillain characters that might be too scary for some viewers. Also, there are moments of peril and seemingly inevitable death that might also be too scary, as well as when the Time Traveler, who looks like Death minus the scythe, vanishes all the superheroes from existence.
