Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this animated action story pits Superman and his pal Batman against almost every other supervillain and hero. Superman is framed for a murder he didn't commit, but the authorities are determined to bring him in, and the task falls to many of the heroes who once fought alongside him. And when the government places a $1 billion bounty on the caped crusader, every villain in town tries to collect. The film starts with some intriguing questions about right and wrong, but the latter half is near nonstop super-battles, with plenty of destruction.
No sex, nudity, or even flirting. One female character has ridiculously exaggerated breasts, even by comic-book standards; another character comments on her figure.
Lots of super-fighting, mostly hand-to-hand battles but there are a few energy blasts, explosions, etc. Though there are no injuries or blood, the amount of time spent on combat sequences -- and the obvious hostility between the participants -- make this film a bit more intense than other animated superhero stories.
Right at the beginning a newscaster says "f--ked in the a-- with a red-hot poker," with bad words bleeped out but recognizable.
Several characters are forced to make a choice between following their orders and doing the right thing. When Superman is framed for a murder he didn't commit, other heroes are conflicted over whether they should try to arrest him, or believe his story.
