This movie is pretty good. The violence is pretty mild. There is some cursing but its not that bad. It has an averagely ok story. This movie is pretty much like a ton of other super hero movies. It has some scenes that are kind of intense, but not to many. The animation is ok. in conclusion, this movie I think is ok for ages 10 and up, and is a pretty average superhero movie.

While best for those familiar with the DCU, Justice League vs. Teen Titans, unlike some of the other DC movies, is accessible for those who aren't superfans. Besides the action, there are coming-of-age scenes involving Raven and Damian that are relatable in some ways. Not in, say, origin stories involving demons, interdimensional realms, and the like, but in simply growing up, finding friends and community, fitting in, and not fitting in. To drive this home, there's an amusing montage at the local fairgrounds (with an emo song as the soundtrack) showing the Teen Titans crushing the ring toss and strongman contests, and culminating in a fierce Dance Dance Revolution battle between Beast Boy and Damian. After so much heavy talk in these movies about good versus evil, civilization vs. chaos, the often-blurred lines between good and evil etc., it's a welcome bit of comic relief.

It's a slightly deceptive title, as the Teen Titans are actually fighting possessed versions of most of the Justice League, but even so, it doesn't come across as a gimmick. The movie strikes a nice balance between action, backstory, and character development. While there seem to be plenty of inside jokes and references for the DCU obsessives, it isn't a requirement for enjoying it. The action and conflict are plentiful, and while focused more on Raven and Damian than the others, it's easy to follow and doesn't require firsthand knowledge (or access to Google within arm's reach) to have a sense of what's at stake for each character.
