An alien attack threatening cataclysmic worldwide devastation brings together the world's greatest superheroes for the first time in Justice League: War. When the powerful Darkseid and his massive, relentless forces invade Earth, a group of previously unaligned super heroes -- misunderstood and, in some cases, hunted by the authorities -- discover that the only way to fend off the attack is to work together as a cohesive unit. Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Shazam and, in his origin story, Cyborg, combine their respective talents in an all-out battle to save the planet. Thus is born the Justice League.

Dark animated tale has constant violence, some profanity.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Justice League: War is a 2014 straight-to-DVD installment in which Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, and other well-known superheroes band together to stop an alien invasion of Earth. While the more "noir" takes of these superheroes has been going on for some time now -- Batman and company are far from perfect, have obvious flaws, have difficulty finding acceptance from the human race, etc. -- parents more accustomed to the '70s and '80s evocations of these characters will be more than a little shocked to see the Green Lantern call Batman a "phenomenal douche bag." There is other profanity throughout (including "s--t" and "bitch"), but it's the violence that's the most prevalent. The movie feels like one long fight scene as superheroes and villains fight each other, throw each other into walls and buildings, and battle with swords. There is some bullying and taunting, and in one scene a man informs Wonder Woman that she "dress[es] like a whore." Also, when Wonder Woman puts the "lasso of truth" around this man, he reveals he cross-dresses in a Wonder Woman costume because it "makes [him] feel powerful."
