If the ambition is to provide two hours of instantly forgettable, popcorn-munching escapism, it succeeds.
It's the kind of movie you'll want to see a second time with someone who hasn't seen it yet, to remember what it was like to watch it for the first time.

Although I seem to have had higher expectations than I thought, the movie is super entertaining.
First Teen Titans Go!, and now this movie.And on another note, there is going to be a live action TV show being released next year,and I really hope that it isn't also another bad adaption of the Teen Titans or that will be the final straw of how much I loved the original Teen Titans show which premiered in 2003.
Okay, I personally don't like the direction DC has been taking in recent years with most of its animations. This includes "Son of Batman," "Batman vs. Robin," "Bad Blood" and, of course, the predecessor of the film that I'll speak about later, "Justice League vs. Teen Titans."The reason I do not like it is not relevant here, what matters is that "The Judas Contract" left me with hopes of a better future within that medium. The movie is not perfect, far from it, there are things that I really found awful, like the flashback quite "loose" and without connection with the rest of the story that we have in the beginning, or the whole story involving Terra, however, these things are less annoying than in previous ones, and good and more engaging things stand out. Even Damian Wayne is no longer the center of this universe of animated films that DC has been creating for the first time, and that makes an incredible difference, he almost becomes a cool character!It's worth the addition to Kevin Smith's participation here, seriously, why the guy is so venerated in the nerdy way?The construction of the Blue Beetle story is really cool, they can tell you more about the character in a subtle way that does not seem to be played (even though they have no connection to the main story line). The scenes with the Nightwing are very good, with a very cool specific action sequence.In short, "The Judas Contract" is a film that still has problems, but it is by far a lot better than I mentioned above, and despite everything, still provides a cool pastime, being fun and very fast!
I guess this is for children, but I don't want to meet the kid who thinks this is good.The voice acting is horrible.The angst is over the top.The plot is a by the numbers repeat of older comic stories including older TT stories.This is like watching paint dry - while you're in a sealed container with paint drying over the hole, and when it dries you no longer have oxygen, and it dried an hour ago.The sound effects are awful. In once scene, a guy who was made invulnerable is killed with a single gun shot. What happened to his invulnerability is a mystery. When evil henchmen move the body, the sound effect is a squishing sound as if they're lifting a giant pudding. It's just one example of the over loud, odd sound effects that are most noticeable in the fight scenes. Two metal rods crashing together shouldn't sound like a sword being pulled out of a scabbard.Teen Titans Please Stop! I can't take the torture!
All of DC needs a reboot. Seriously. They are already saying Wonder Woman is going to be garbage and the stupid movie didn't even come out yet. Whatever, I'm here to review the new Teen Titans movie and it is shockingly just okay. I was expecting it to be as lame as that last DCEU animated snooze fest, and the snooze fest before that. Once upon a time, all the animation to come out of DC was amazing. What the heck happened? Seriously, what the heck is going on with DC? Are they trying to make Marvel look good? This stupid movie is bearable and that shouldn't be the case. DC should be the top dog when it comes to superhero films. It is almost like DC is trying to lose fans and money. How idiotic can they be? Take Batman V Superman for example, that should have been the highest grossing movie of all-time. They had two of the biggest icons in modern fiction who each have billions of fans around the world and they pushed out garbage in an attempt to stupidity play catch up with Marvel. The smartest thing DC can do right now is do a total reboot. New stories, new actors and new everything. We gave them three chances already and what did we get out of it? A lame Joker and two of the most epic story lines in comicbook history watered down and thrown into an embarrassing movie. DC fans can save the DC universe by boycotting Wonder Woman and forcing a hard reboot. If Wonder Woman tanks at the box office DC will most likely reboot the franchise after the release of Justice League. If Wonder Woman does good or even just okay, they'll green light more crap and we will be boned. Marvel fans will continue to laugh at us and DC will do so much damage to its reputation that we will not get another live-action for another 15 to 20 years because no Hollywood studio will be willing to touch a toxic property.
