Common Sense Note
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.
Lex Luthor appears naked (no sensitive body parts shown). Superwoman kisses two men and flirts heavily with them, with the promise of some rough "playing." J'onn J'onzz, the Martian Manhunter, kisses a human woman.
Lots of fighting, ranging from old-fashioned punching to arrows, laserblasts, bullets, and assorted other fantasy weapons. There are also threats ("I'm going to kill you," "I'm going to beat you to death," etc.), characters screaming in pain, and some blood. Some minor characters die.
Two uses of "ass," two "crap"s, and one "what the hell?"
The movie centers on two strong themes. The first is about standing up to bullies. Several characters make good arguments why they shouldn't, but the end result is that not standing up to them gives them more power and allows them to win. The other theme is free will. Villain Owlman believes that since every choice made results in an alternate reality, nothing matters -- but the heroes don't agree with him.
