Review in Brief: Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018)

Sometimes there is a place to laugh at really loud and long farts and murdering Bruce Wayne’s parents by time travel. TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES is that place. I’m a bit old for the show the film spins off from, but any fans of superhero movies (unless you think dark and moody is the only way to go, you’ll be the but of most of the jokes) should titter at some of the gags, geeky references and unapologetic silliness. For all the plot devices thrown in, this is essentially a series of linked skits, but it’s no less enjoyable for it. It’s bright, joyous and mischievous, the antidote to so many overly serious comic book adaptations over the last decade. Kids will love it, and parents, especially superhero fans, will find a lot in to like too, though they might not thank Robin (Scott Menville) for what he asks his audience to do just before the credits.

About Sam Sewell-Peterson

I'm not paid to write about film - I do it because I love it. Favourites include Bong Joon-ho, Danny Boyle, the Coen Brothers, Nicolas Winding Refn, Steven Spielberg, Guillermo del Toro, Taika Waititi and Edgar Wright. All reviews and articles are original works owned by me. They represent one man's opinion, and I'm more than happy to engage in civilised debate if you disagree.
