Chaotic, overstuffed mess of a superhero story is violent.

HOLY WD-40, PENGUIN! WAIT - YOU'RE NOT THE BEAVER!

Let's get this out of the way - there is a unique graphical presence that makes The Guardians of Justice sometimes fun to watch. OK...man, this is garbage. I have seen better fanboy productions, complete with better writing. Every episode is throwing so much background data at the screen, the screen constantly flashing and the setting always in constant motion that there should be an epileptic seizure warning prior to each episode. The Guardians of Justice is like watching multiple seasons of an anthology series with episodes laid one on top of another. There is zero originality, zero craftmanship, z.e.r.o. value in every episode. I would find more entertainment in NETFLIX just displaying a pile of burning money that each episode would have cost. You keep experimenting NETFLIX, and eventually that spaghetti will stick to the wall.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This ambitious but generally unpleasant hybrid show feels simultaneously like a Watchmen rip-off, a bad Ralph Bakshi animation, and a series of skippable video game cutscenes. The frequent jumps between genres and visual styles that appear to be this show's signature are simply unwarranted and end up adding much less than creator Shankar thinks. In a media landscape already packed with superheroes, antiheroes, and beyond, this show asks a lot in its rapid-fire introductions of many new characters. The lazy comedy relies on "soo random" events and situations (cyborg T-rexes loose in Syria! Awsome Man is eating a taco during a meeting! His name is Awsome Man! Andy Milonakis is there!) With more care, creativity, and camp, and a little less chaos this series could rise to become an interesting entry into the scuzzy superhero genre. And even more unfortunately for Guardians, there's a competing series that does all this and more: it's called Peacemaker.
