Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this animated film is a bit darker than most superhero cartoons. The villain, Sinestro, uses violence to intimidate people, tortures suspects, and isn't above murdering his allies if they no longer fit into his plans. This casual brutality and menace makes him seem a shade more evil and more intense than most bad guys as he plots to rule the universe. There's some minor swearing and even a scene that seems to involve an alien drug, so the film is probably a bit too much for younger viewers.

Sexual Content


Plenty of animated action, all typical for a superhero series. What is not typical is the villain, Sinestro, who is willing to use force and intimidation when questioning people, tortures suspects, and even murders people who get in the way of his nefarious schemes. Though there's little graphic blood or gore, some of the sequences showing his casual violence are a bit darker than the average comic book fare.


Mild swearing, including "ass," "bastard" and "hell."

Social Behavior

Evil never wins, and though sometimes it seems like all is lost, teamwork, courage, and loyalty will always prevail.


Tie-in to vast quantities of related merchandise.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

One scene takes place in an intergalactic bar, though it's not exactly clear what the patrons are drinking. Sinestro also seems to be using a strong drug to question someone, forcing her to take much more than the average dose, causing her obvious pain.
