It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies-everyone but the Teen Titans, that is. But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream. But when the group is radically misdirected by a seriously supervillain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry. The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line.
I’m a fan of all the animated DC movies but I knew what I was getting myself into with Teen Titans Go! to the Movies. This is a show that kids LOVE and it is clearly directed at them, so if you are like me and you are in your 30s and you see it, don’t worry if you have a bit of a feeling of the whole thing going a little over your head and not appealing to your demographic. Still, they do get pretty clever with the jokes of the movie such as the Green Lantern movie and the fact Deathstroke is pretty much DC’s Deadpool (even if he’s called Slade here). So we do have some meta jokes for the nerds like me, but we also have a lot of stuff that is totally aimed right at the kids and I’m sure they’ll love this movie more than most adults will. You’ll still be able to get a laugh or two out of what you see regardless.
The whole plot of the movie besides Deathstroke deals with Robyn and the Titans not having their own movie while basically, every character in DC seems to have or be in one. Along the way we see pretty much every DC character, you can think of from all Justice Leauge members to Swamp Thing. So it isn’t a bad movie, it just wasn’t something overall for me. Still, your kids will love it if you aren’t a kid and it looks really good in HD regardless, but if you’ve ever seen an episode of Teen Titans you’ll want to take note of the fact that this is basically a full-length version of just that mixed in with some more meta jokes.
