Bad movie

This is outrageous! Would children even watch this weird and adult rated movie?I mean this doesn’t make sense at all and certainly not entertaining .

This show is awful

What is wrong with the people who make this stuff? Positive images for girls?!? Um, no. Do you want your kids to act like any one of these little ladies? Hope not. The voices are awful brats. The dialogue is not for kids. The way that the characters relate to each other is not for kids.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (2 ):

It's always a plus when young female audiences have truly strong, brave, and smart super heroines to root for, and there's no question that they'll find them in this otherwise routine story. Plus, there's plenty of thrills for action fans, with the girls careening through the skies and battling evil with the prowess of the most heroic boy characters.

Still, while Lego DC Super Hero Girls: Brain Drain has music, jokes, suspense, and ongoing likable characters, it's a ho-hum production, lacking originality and specialness. And even little kids might be annoyed by some of the shrill and overly cutesy voice performances; grownups will simply cringe. Then there's the matter of Lego joining the DC family once again. Other than enhancing their toy and merchandise catalogues, what possible reason could there be to turn the animated teen Super Hero Girls into Legos?
