5.0 out of 5 stars retro story January 23, 2014
Format:DVD
This story is inspired by a 1970s episode of the Superfriends where Lex Luthor and the Legion of Doom go back in time to stop Superman, Wonder Woman and the Green Lantern from becoming the heroes they were destined to become. This movie is a retelling of that story put into more modern times and involving young heroes from the future to help stop Lex and the Legion of Doom from preventing the Kents from adopting and raising baby Clark. It does not follow any recent storyline from the Justice League. It has the feel of the Superfriends with Superman being the leader of the group of heroes giving the orders to the others in the league as he did in the 70s. In this story Lex and others from the Legion of Doom go back in time along with some of the Justice League to help stop this from happening. The young future heroes help save the day. Don't surprised to see some cameos from characters only seen in the original Superfriends show. It's a story you can safely watch with young children. If you are old enough to remember the Superfriends you will probably enjoy this fun little story. It is just an hour of retro fun and I recommend it for anyone who enjoys the DC Superheroes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just a cash grab February 1, 2014
Format:DVD
The unconventional way this was initially released (a Target exclusive with almost zero promotion) made it seem like it must be nothing more than a low budget "toy commercial." But JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time was actually a pleasant surprise. The movie is throwback fun offering an original time traveling escapade, light-hearted tone and paradoxes galore. This movie rekindles that Saturday morning cartoon feeling, presenting Super Friends the way I only remember it in my nostalgic mind. The plot isn’t air tight, but it also isn’t stupid. It just does its job in setting the stage for updated versions of colorful heroes and villains to engage in some well animated action that does not overstay its welcome.

Yes, at 52 minutes this is a tad on the short side, but it didn't feel rushed, and the animation is on par with many DC animated TV series. In fact, the tone is somewhat similar to the lighter 3rd season of Justice League Unlimited, but much more grounded than the 80's Super Friends. This is definitely aimed at a younger crowd than something like Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, but is does not deserve to be dismissed as even adults could find something to enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad. Enjoyed it. January 25, 2014
Format:DVD
Big fan of the DC Justice League animations. I own every single DC animated movie, as well as all the JL seasons, all on Blu Ray. This movie came out of nowhere. Never even heard about it until I went to Target today and saw it in the new releases. It's a Target exclusive and for a limited time (supposedly). Retails for $14.99 (got it on sale for $12.99).

My Personal Pros:
- Animation is about avg and not as good as the recent movies. Could be worse I guess
- Story is about time travel hence the title which I was pretty happy with.
- Pretty big cast of the more well known DC characters.
- Karate Kid and Dawnstar from the Legion of Super Heroes make an appearance in their 1st movie along side of the Justice League. Was afraid I wouldn't like them here but was liked seeing the new faces.
- Like all or most of the DC animated movies, it also includes 2 bonus shorts. 1st one was The Mysterious Time Creatures from the All New Super Friends Hour Season 2 from 1977. About 23 min long. 2nd one was Elevator to Nowhere from Super Friends Season 5 from 1980). Only about 8 min long. Both are a welcome editions for great cheezy nostalgic fun. It's the 1st time they've included bonus shorts from this era. I actually remember seeing these episodes when I was a kid.

My Personal Cons:
- It's only 53 min long.
- Lack of special features (behind the scenes, interviews, future projects, etc).
- DVD only so no Blu Ray version.
- Worth at least a rental but you can't since it's a Target store exclusive.

4.0 out of 5 stars If "SuperFriends" had been just a bit more kick-ass February 7, 2014
Format:DVD
At first, I was skeptical about the "G" rating, which gives the impression that it's aimed more at the "kidlets," which in a way it is; then I was skeptical with its premise, being a "time travel" adventure.

Now regarding the first concern, although this may be reasonably perceived as an animated feature targeting "younger" audiences (seriously, no "pun" was intended there, as I found out only after having viewed this movie just prior to writing this review that this DTD-original had been initially released as a "Target" stores exclusive, supposedly to help promote a new toy line), I can't help but come away with the feeling that the "real" target audience for feature is those of us awash with a heavy dose of "nostalgia."

This movie is essentially "SuperFriends," given a bit of an "update" boost, making it a bit more sophisticated (you can also read "sophisticated" as "mature") without really pushing the limits of "good taste" too hard, as many of the "DCAU" PG/PG-13 rated features tend to do -- often needlessly.

Although they've amped-up the "intensity" considerably from what used to be "Saturday Morning" fare (which may cause some to question whether the "G" rating was truly sufficient), the dialogue in some areas and the littering of "inside jokes" puts this movie on a level that only us "oldsters" who grew up on a steady diet of "SuperFriends" could fully understand & appreciate. In other words, it's really going to feel more like it's "OUR" movie than "theirs"... and surprisingly, that's not necessarily a bad thing or anything that'll make us feel ashamed.

The storyline was poor. The character elements were weak. I would only recommend if you want to have it in your library of Justice League animation.
