A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Good triumphs over evil. Sometimes it's necessary to take risks in order to do the right thing. Women can be effective game-changers: strong, smart, determined. Jealousy is a destructive emotion.
Positive Role Models
Princess Diana/Wonder Woman earns her superhero status: courageous, powerful, honest, loyal, wise, compassionate. Solo male character is smart, brave, willing to support a strong female. Ethnic diversity. Villains, formidable and outrageous, are also female.
Violence & Scariness
Frequent animated violence: fierce battles between opposing forces, explosions, bloody deaths, recurrent use of assault weapons, point-blank gunfire, lengthy and brutal hand-to-hand combat. A sad death. Scary-looking demons.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Wonder Woman: Bloodlines is the first animated movie featuring the female superhero since 2009. Once again, it's an origin story: The Amazonian princess leaves her home planet, Themyscira, and transforms from Princess Diana to Wonder Woman. She joins "Man's World" to save it from a powerful evil. Other than Steve Trevor, her ally, the movie is populated by women in all the significant roles. As in other DC/Warner Bros. Justice League stories, this movie is jam-packed with action sequences: explosions, swords, assault weapons, bloody deaths, sad deaths, brutal hand-to-hand combat, and the appearance of demonic villains. There are a few curses heard -- "s--t," "bitch," "screw him," "dammit" -- and there's one romantic kiss. Though many of the characters are already established enemies of the Justice League and will be familiar to DC fans, the movie stands on its own for new viewers.

Is It Any Good?
Classic animation, thoughtful character-building, and an easy-to-follow story help this movie prove that female superheroes (and villains) can be as powerful and relatable as their male counterparts. Performances are solid. There's enough exciting, well-drawn action to please Justice League fans of all genders. An added bonus is the satisfying emotional arc for many of the principal characters. While Wonder Woman has appeared in most of the Justice League films, Wonder Woman: Bloodlines is the first DVD/streaming movie in a decade to star the Amazonian princess. Her appearance now, in this better-than-average tale, is a fact that can be attributed to the financial and critical success of the live-action features Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel.
