JL Adventures tries to harken back to the old days of the Superfriends, with Lex Luthor heading the ol' Legion of Doom. With the recent release of WB animations, the story writing and design direction for JL Adv is several steps back rather than a step forward. This is only intended for those who remember watching Superfriends. Everyone else who have seen the more action-oriented and more involving recent release should avoid this. I give it 3/5 rating since WB/DC is trying to revive that old Superfriends formula. But the execution, story writing, and character design makes it all fall short. If this is going to be a "Justice League Adventures," it should be a TV series rather than a one-shot (with a big implication of a possible sequel).

While there are far better DC animated movies available, this doesn't disappoint. The animation is not as detailed, but the story picks up that dead weight & delivers a solid movie, however short it is. Seemingly it was designed to appeal to a much younger audience than it's counterparts, as titles such as Wonder Woman, The Flashpoint Paradox, & Justice League War are more gritty and complex. I'm more accustomed to the edgier animation & though tis movie is unorthodox of DC, it is still above average.

This is not an adult oriented PG-13 Justice League movie. It is a kids movie. And it's great! I really liked and hope that they make more in this series. It's nice to have a Justice League movie I can watch with my son. It has a good storyline. The future JLA members are a little annoying but not unbearable. My son really enjoyed it and I can watch it with him. As a Dad, that is a huge deal. We need more kid oriented DC animation like this. It brings younger kids into a fun world. Buy it!
