A great DCAU movie

A great tie in movie to DCAMU . They kept pretty close to the Judas Contract comic book story line. SO its not supper appropriate for little kids, but its not bad. Only thing I wish they did different is have a big fight scene between Terra and Raven instead of skipping over it like they did, and also the movie needed more Raven in it.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex

not for 12 and 10 ... probably entertaining for older

My daughters are 12 and 10, and I had to turn it off. Only two stars for sex and sexual innuendo ? I walked away, came back, and saw two examples in ~5 minutes. The violence was ... "filtered", though a shot between the eyes and a be-heading weren't scenes I felt were appropriate for elementary school aged children.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (6):

Attention is paid to character, as well as dynamic action, in this animated story of treachery and world domination, providing considerable emotional heft as well as solid adventure. Director Sam Liu has made a very grown-up version of the Teen Titans, relying on a story once told in comic book form more than three decades ago. Teen Titans: The Judas Contract will be most satisfying to fans who are already familiar with the various team members, their powers, and what led them to join up and fight against oppression and evil. Well-made, well-performed, and with a comprehensible plot, this film has all the essential zaps, blasts, and fights to the death required of teen superhero movies, as well as a few sad, reflective moments. It's appropriate only for older, mature kids.
