Watched this with my 7yr old and she loved it same as the previous two titles, shame it shows the rating so low because of some 30+yr old men rating this stupidly, its a childrens movie and personally that is the only review that matters to me in this case as its for their entertainment and by my daughters reaction having to watch it 4 times back to back safe to say she enjoys it it does also depend on if your child is into the whole superhero thing aswell
Well, it's time to grab your scuba gear, and dive underwater for another DC Superhero Girls adventure. This is "DC Superhero Girls: Legends Of Atlantis". Let's begin.The movie starts with the discovery of The Book Of Legends, a powerful book with dark magic. When the girls lock it away, Mera and Siren steal it from them in order to take over Atlantis from Aquaman. The girls then try to go underwater to stop them and keep the surface world from flooding. This movie packs in quite a lot in just 75 minutes, yet it manages to tie itself well with a moral on being able to overcome your personal issues and rise to true courage and heroism. Let's talk about the four major character arcs in this movie.Wonder Woman's story: Oh man, is Wonder Woman sympathetic here. Let me explain. When she was a child, she met up with Mera and Siren when playing on the beach, and almost died when she was dragged underwater and attacked by sea monsters. Since then, she's had a crippling fear of the sea monsters, essentially being traumatized. Wow! That's pretty tragic. She's more impulsive and snappish due to her struggles in trying to lead the team to save the team. What really helps her case is her altruism shining through. She maintains the innate desire to do good while also making sure no one gets hurt or almost sacrifices themselves to help her out. It also helps that she at least feels like she doesn't want to be a hindrance to the mission.Mera and Siren's story: Now let's talk about the sisters Mera and Siren. Since they were young, they've been orphans, and just want to be able to get by in life and survive. How they go about it is where they differ. Mera doesn't actually want to do anything bad. She just wants to be part of a good home, and actively goes out of her way to minimize collateral damage, and even save people when she can, as shown in the flashback where she saved Wonder Woman, but left before she woke up. Siren, on the other hand, is more vindictive. Although she's also sympathetic, she goes way too far in her endeavors, wanting her sister to stay onboard with her and getting less tolerant of her goodness, and resorting to conquering Atlantis and locking away her sister. She does still have a FreudianExcuse of not wanting to be stepped on, but Mera is still more sympathetic since she actively tries to do the right thing, but doesn't have the spine to stand up for herself.Harley and Raven's story: Now let's talk about Harley and Raven's plot. When locking away The Book Of Legends, Raven accidentally swaps Batgirl and SuperGirl's powers (which I elaborate on below), and is too hesitant to use her magic when it goes haywire, and closes herself off to protect others. Harley tries to cheer her up and make her more proactive. So, we have a nice "opposites attract" vibe where both Harley and Raven are pretty likable. Harley is trying to do what she can to help Raven open herself more to others, while Raven doesn't want to be seen as a weak link in the school's sturdy chain. It helps that Raven is still learning more about who she is, while Harley at least has respect for her privacy.Batgirl and Supergirl's story: As mentioned above, Raven accidentally swaps their powers. Batgirl becomes rather impulsive with her newfound powers, while SuperGirl is a bonafide geek with her new intelligence. They naturally struggle, but it works with their characters. Batgirl is no slouch in a fight, but she's more tech based in combat. While SuperGirl isn't dumb, she is more reliant on using brute strength in a battle. The undying support they have for each other is rather admirable.So, how does everything end? Well, it starts with Harley restoring Raven's confidence when she shows her how much others need her, and she successfully turns Batgirl and SuperGirl back to normal. Batgirl then hatches a foolproof plan taking advantage of the general area. It then cuts to Mera using her cunning to trick Siren, while she and Wonder Woman work together to finish her off and restore power. The girls are honored as heroes of Atlantis, and Siren is banished, with Mera feeling bad for her. Add in some slick action and straight up fun humor, and you have an enjoyable movie.
It's time for the annual Hero of the Year ceremony and the students of Super Hero High compete for the top prize. But the festivities take a turn when Dark Opal targets the heroes and steals some of their most valued possessions to form the ultimate weapon! It's up to the students at Super Hero High to spring into action! But can Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl and Bumblebee stop Dark Opal- and his mysterious partnerin- crime -to save the day? My problem with DC Super Hero Girls: Hero of the Year were 3 little things first of all why didn't Batman and Superman had at least a cameo i mean Flash and Green Lantern are here and they don't do much which brings me to the 2nd problem which is the lack of male characters and the 3rd one was on Batgirl's character that gets called "Non-Super" isn't Harley non-super also? I mean why are Harley and Poison Ivy with the "good girls" aren't supposed to be villains? But anyways still nowhere near as bad as a 5.7/10 and i think that a lot of girls will love it and even some boys too the highlights were clearly Supergirl, Batgirl, Wonder Woman and even Gorilla Grodd (8/10)
"Super Hero High" is a television special to the series "DC Super Hero Girls". It was released back in 2016 and runs for slightly under 44 minutes, so still falls into short film territory. Director is Jennifer Coyle and the list of writers is endless as basically every superhero featured in here gets their/her own credit. Yep, it's about female superheroes almost exclusively and they made sure the few male ones don't steal the show from the chicks. The leader of the gang is Wonder Woman and we find out about Supergirl and Batgirl stepping up to the challenge to join these female Avengers. Also with the exception of the reptile beast right at the start, the villains are female, like Giganta and the evil Granny and also all the hench(wo)men as well. The most memorable of these very few male characters is probably the talking gorilla who was quite fun. I myself was a bit surprised to see Harley Quinn fight for the good side given how many female antagonists were in here, but yeah I think this came around the time when there was the Oscar-winning movie starring that chick from Wolf of Wall Street as Harley Quinn, so she was too popular to be defeated as one of the villains. Anyway, all in all, this wasn't bad. it's not a gritty or dark film, but really all about the fun and the quantity of antagonists also shows that it's not an unwinnable battle at any point that we get to see here, even if the good vs. evil story line is present from minute 1 until the credits roll in. Runtime feels accurate too I would say and even if I am a male I think this is a better watch for female audiences, teenagers preferrably. But it is more than just another film trying to cash in with the wave of commercially highly successful superhero films. I give it a thumbs-up. 2b1af7f3a8
