DC Comics may not make good live action movies, but their animated movies are always very close to their comic source. The added benefit of this collection is you get a graphic novel which allows you to see how true to the characters the animated team stayed, and you get a nice collectable figurine, which you can display pretty much anywhere. The movie itself does a great job of bringing the Titans together and showing how difficult it is for the young "sidekicks" to truly learn how to function as a team, but also put aside their egos and discover how far they are willing to go, to be the heroes they believe themselves to be. The movie also shows how the Justice League sometimes overlooks their sidekicks, and leave them behind because they don't think their sidekicks are willing to go to the depths that they themselves go. When the Justice League face a challenge that they don't yet understand and become compromised, it's up to the Titans to band together and battle this new threat, as well as the Justice League, in order to free them. The character building in this movie is by far the best parts, but there are also some good action sequences and some great banter between the characters. This is definitely a good pick up, and is appropriate for all ages.
