Parents say (1):
Kids say (2):

Some light but relatable references to self-confidence play a small part in this tale, but the abundance of loud, busy battle sequences overpower the message, as well as some funny comic bits. While the story seems to be simple -- good guys fight bad guys who threaten the planet -- there are an awful lot of villains on the scene with plenty of evil motivations to go around, so younger kids may not be able to follow all the ins and outs of the plot. That hardly matters when they're engaged by the dozens of surprises emerging from Batman's utility belt and the smash, bang, boom of combat.

On the plus side, the creative team smartly utilizes the solid voice performances of the actors who "appear" in the other animated versions, as well as this offering. It's notable that the release of Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Aquaman - Rage of Atlantis comes only months before the big screen Aquaman is set to open. It couldn't be purposeful advance marketing for kids, could it?
