      Classic Storyline Adapted Modernly

      For all the comic book fans out there, The Judas Contract was a MASSIVELY popular storyline from the 80's at a time where Teen Titans was the top selling comic title at D.C. Comics and this storyline proved why. Fans have been waiting for an animated adaptation of this since 2007 when it was announced but then shelved because it was deemed "too unpopular" to be successful by the studio. This adaptation does update the story and swap out some characters with others, such as Blue Beetle for Cyborg. But this movie fits beautifully into the cinematic universe created and is great fun for fans new and old. If you're a fan of the classic New Teen Titans run of comics from the 80's, you'll love this blu ray as one of the special features is a reuniting of writer Marv Wolfman and George Perez as they talk about their run on the Titans and the legacy they left with the characters. This is a must own for any and every D.C. Comics fan.

      Middle of the Road DC Animation

      I enjoyed Teen Titans: The Judas Contract. It was about on par with Justice League vs. Teen Titans, or maybe a little better. For some context, I was never into the older comics, but I watched the mid-2000's cartoon when it aired. I love the team, and the voice work is strong. The animation is great during action scenes, and mediocre throughout the rest of the film. WB and DC are cutting corners, and it shows. The animation is choppy, the writing is getting worse. I have numerous complaints, but at the end of the day, the action is great, and I don't want to see DC's animated originals go away, so I support them. This is not among their worst efforts, but certainly not among their best either. It's right about down the center. It has the potential to improve with more viewings, but I doubt it. Still, I recommend to fans. Most likely fans only.

      If you've read the comic...

      then you know what the story is about already. If not, you should find this to be a pretty good movie. I'd already read the comic 30 yrs ago, so the story wasn't new to me; with that said however, I love the art. TT and YJ are DC's best animated movies, with realistic movement in the way the characters are depicted, great action sequences, and excellent sound effects. DC is 2nd to none when it comes to their animated movies, as the characters and stories tend to be geared more toward adults and skew older regarding the intended audience, which is fine with me, as they end up being comics brought to life without the limitations of live-action feature films. Its a movie I recommend for your blu-ray collection, and also recommend seeing. I've seen better from DC, but its no where near as bad as some of their more recent offerings.

      Teen Titans was OK for the DC Universe!

      Ok when I watch films I do so on a 180" movie theater screen with full 7.1 surround sound and the Buttkicker transducer system. This is not to Boast but to give an idea of the clarity that I rate both 4k and 1080p films. 1st off regardless if you are huge into 4k or still collect Blu-ray; I will add that with today's (Oppo) upscaling technology along with upscaling technology on theater projectors that the difference between Blu-ray & 4k is minimal. I will say that going over 180" that you will likely see a difference and recommend 4k for 150"+ screens. I found the film to be Fantastic (as usual for WB's DC Universe). Even with the large screen the animation is fantastic and you really cant get better voice overs. Why 4 instead of 5 stars? Because its not BATMAN! LOL= Fun watch, worth buying on Blu-ray!

      Change in Pace of DCU Animated Flick

      I normally collect these DCU animated Blu-Ray/DVD/UV combo box sets just for the inclusion of the "limited edition" mini-figurines or sometimes a mini-trade paperback, related to the packaged DCU animated film but I enjoyed watching this "Teen Titans: Judas Contract" film. The film is modernized with some new team members(Bruce Wayne's son, Damian, R.I.P. in the comics, is a Titan, as well as Blue Beetle). Miguel Ferrer,voice actor of Slade Wilson, AKA Deathstroke, was incredible. Rest in peace, mate! The film follows some of the plot fr. the original "Judas Contract" story fr. Wolfman + Perez's awesome "New Teen Titans" comic from way back in '84. All in all, a nice change in pace for this DCU animated film to step away fr. the routine Bat/Super/Justice League releases bimonthly.

      I am a huge fan of DC animated movies! They've been killin' it lately! Teen Titans: The Judas Contract is no exception. The fight scenes were fun. The character dynamics were great. The chemistry between Beast Boy and Terra was really interesting. I loved Terra's character development. You can really see her internal struggle as the movie progressed. I'll also admit that I haven't been the biggest fan of Damien in the animated movies up until now, but he's starting to grow on me. Damien's character seems a lot more grounded in this film, he's more humanized and interesting because of his developed connection with the Titans. Overall I really enjoyed the film and thought it was a solid effort from the DC animators!

      The story you know

      This film suffers the same problem as so many DCAU films: it strives too hard to stick closely to the original material on which it is based, which makes for a lackluster film. Even if you don't know the original story, you know where it is leading, partly because so many other DC media has done similar things with some of its characters. For instance, this storyline has also played out in Young Justice, and it was probably done better there than here. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad film, but there just aren't any surprises. I actually highly recommend the prior DCAU film, Justice League vs Teen Titans. It gives you more character development. I love the Teen Titans characters, and I wanted more from this film.

      The DC movies have kind of been lack luster since they launched the New 52 in continuity story lines that felt more like they placed emphasis on action over story. This is well done paying homage to the "original" Judas Contract story line even though most fans like myself would have preferred it with the "original characters" introduced in that story. The only complaint is that there is a little snippet of the original team ala New 52 that would have been fun to watch a little more of....overall almost has a Young Justice feel to it...maybe because of the voice actors involved. So, if you enjoyed those Young Justice episodes....you're sure to be pleased with this.
