Superheroes face Cold War paranoia in violent animated tale.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Justice League: The New Frontier is a 2008 animated feature in which beloved superheroes face Cold War paranoia and a spreading international threat. This is a violent cartoon, with blood and dead bodies shown. A little boy is threatened with cult sacrifice by a knife-wielding cult leader. There are two close-up fatal shootings, not directly shown, but there is blood. After Wonder Woman liberates the women of a Korean village from soldiers who (it's strongly implied) raped them, the women take up the soldiers' dropped arms, kill them, and leave the bodies burning in bonfires. These moments, as well as scenes of suicide by gun (heard, but not shown), the demonic imagery shown as a vast herd of dinosaurs go on the attack, and the overall creepiness of the cult conveyed in the movie, surely played a role in the PG-13 rating, and while some might find the rating a bit harsh, the violence and content are a lot for kids and younger tweens to process. There are also themes of some of the more unsavory aspects of the 1950s, such as racism, the Korean War, McCarthyism, and U.S. government paranoia and treachery.
