Superhero movie mixes cartoon violence, positive messages.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this animated superhero adventure is heavy on fantasy violence, with lots and lots of fighting -- as well as weapons, some blood, and minor characters' deaths. There's also some mild language ("ass," "crap," etc.), flirting, kissing, and innuendo. Although it's edgier than the Justice League TV show, this story about Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Lex Luthor, and more does have strong messages about teamwork, helping others, and standing up to bullies, as well as a more complex subplot about free will. Older tween and teen superhero fans should get a kick out of it, but it may be a bit much for some younger viewers.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about the movie's violence. How did it make you feel? Was it exciting, or did it make you feel anxious?
  • Is it ever OK not to stand up to bullies? Is it OK to use violence on bullies?
  • Sometimes it takes a lot to ask your friends for help. What makes us afraid to ask for help? Would you help your friends if they asked?

These Marvel and DC animated movies are certainly great chances to explore different stories. The only problem with the DC ones is that they have a strict formula for the number of action scenes. This means most of the dialogue between the action can pretty much be ignored. Crisis on Two Earths did well in displaying the different characters and their relationships in the short amount of time. James Woods as Owlman was the most interesting character, becoming something worse than his dull crime-syndicate buddies. It's no New Frontier, and perhaps it's just my love of Green Lantern, but he wasn't in this enough. Hopefully DC will focus on the individual characters as the group efforts are overflowing with too many ingredients.

The story of "Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths" is essentially straight forward, but there are just enough convoluted twists and action to keep you interested, despite the fact that the film is animated.
