Rollicking young superhero tale; lots of cartoon violence.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this movie centers on the offspring of the original Marvel Avengers and their efforts to battle the villain who killed their parents and threatens the life of their guardian. As such there are themes of parental death and -- not surprisingly -- avenging their murders. The young superheroes battle a seemingly unstoppable Ultron, though the continuous sci-fi violence depicted is very much in keeping with comic book style.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about which of the young superheroes' powers they'd like to have, and why. For fans of James Fenimore Cooper -- what is the significance of Hawkeye's name, and why would that character have it? Would you have made the same decision as Torunn at the end of the movie?

3 stars

Marvel's animated feature Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow delivers a bold new vision of the Avengers. Twelve years after being put into hiding, the children of the Avengers are targeted by Ultron when they're discovered in a secret arctic base. The story is quite interesting and the characters are especially compelling. Additionally, the animation is well-done; featuring colorful and simple designs that create a unique visual style. Daring and bold, Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow is an impressive and exciting adventure.

It's actually a lot better than you would think, but it is probably the least entertaining Marvel animated movie to date. It's a little cheesy at some parts, and the action is entertaining, but it's not as cool as it could be. Also it needed more action. Worth a watch, but not great.
