'Teen Titans Go! To the Movies' Review
Teen Titans Go! To the Movies is a 2018 animated superhero comedy film based on the television series Teen Titans Go! This film was written and produced by series developers Michael Jelenic and Aaron Horvath, and directed by series producer Peter Rida Michail and Horvath. The film features the voices of Greg Cipes, Scott Menville, Khary Payton, Tara Strong, and Hynden Walch reprising their respective roles from the series, while Will Arnett and Kristen Bell join the cast.
It seems to the Teen Titans that all the great superheroes have their own movies, everyone but the Teen Titans. Robin is determined to fix the situation, and be seen as a true hero instead of a joke, or worse, as a sidekick. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them. With some great ideas and a killer song, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town. They are determined to pull off their dream. But when the group is laughed at, and discredited by Slade, things go from bad to worse. The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line!
Teen Titans Go! To the Movies is one of the biggest surprises of the year. This was a hilariously funny film that actually had a story with emotion behind it. This film surprised me so much that I had to watch it again to make sure. This film not only had me laughing throughout, but it also managed to keep me interested in the story enough to finish. This is one of the biggest surprises of 2018, and just a downright funny film.
The acting was pretty good. Everyone managed to get and keep the tone of the film, while staying true to the series.
While the comedy was the best part of the film, the plot is truly what holds it together. While, at times, it does feel like an extra long episode from the TV series, it somehow manages to set itself apart from the series, without losing what makes the series great.
I loved how self-aware the film was. It constantly poked fun of other superhero films, as well as the superhero genre. Just look at the poster.
But what really surprised me was how good the actual story was, even though there were some problems. In particular Slade's master plan. It had some flaws, and when it was revealed, I couldn't help but feel a little confused, but as a whole the story really holds the film together.
While the film is pretty heartfelt thought, it does get deep. It won't make you cry, but it will pull on your heartstrings. Robin is the main character of the film, and he surprisingly gets a full character arc, and he gets developed.
The comedy was hilarious, but the plot is where the film truly shines
I think Teen Titans Go! To the Movies is one of the funniest films of 2018. The film really feels like one of the Lego movies. It's hilarious, self-aware, and has a surprisingly good plot. Throw in some great songs and you're in for a good time. The worst part of the film is the fact that it's better than the recent DC films, with the exception of Wonder Woman.
Although they couldn't wait two minutes before throwing in their first related joke, most of the jokes land. Teen Titans Go! To the Movie was a great film for kids and adults alike.
