The Review: Teen Titans The Judas Contract

Teen Titans: The Judas Contract 4/10

I don't know why the animated DC films keep getting worse. There used to be a thing where Marvel made good live action and terrible animated ones and DC had good animated ones and bad live action. Now DC is just batting out on both ends and it sucks. This new Teen Titans: The Judas Contract is their latest animated movie and it stunk and was confusing. It starts off with a flashback of the Teen Titans back when Starfire first joins the team. Not sure why this was needed but they did it. It then goes to the present with Nightwing hanging with the new team from the previous Teen Titans vs. Justice League movie except they have another member, Terra.

Terra is shitty. She acts just like Raven and Damien Wayne so you have three mopey ass teenagers out of five team members. The others are Blue Beetle who can't control his powers and is there to shoot at things and Beast Boy who is there to become an animal and ram things or sit on them. Nightwing and Starfire are a thing now and living together. Its very uninteresting. Terra has the ability to throw rocks and cause earthquakes and has nightmares of her past which make her cause these quakes in her sleep. They go to her room to console her and she is all “Leave me alone I'm fine!” I was like, bitch, you ain't close to fine and your bad dreams could kill us. I don't even know when she joined the damn team!

Meanwhile some evil cult is trying to gather people and make this dude named Brother Blood a god. Deathstroke is helping him and it turns out that Terra is working for Deathstroke. Its pretty creepy because she dresses all “sexy” and tries to hop his bones and he pushes her away until the job is done. I was like “Uh, ain't she like 15 or something and he qualifies for AARP?” Its gross. She betrays the team and Damien is captured because of shit he did in the last movie. Brother Blood tests out his machine on this guy and kills him and I later found out that guy was Deathstroke's son Jericho but if you don't read comics or find out online that that's who dude was it makes no sense when he comes back to life at the end.

This film stunk but the voices and animation were good. That seems to make things worse. When it looks and sounds good but the story is bullshit ass. I wouldn't recommend going out and buying this or watching it on demand because its just gonna lead to another bad animated movie at some point. DC really needs to get their shit together with these animated movies. Don't show some demon god creature cult leader man that captures Batman's goddamn son and Nightwing and there is no mention of Batman or him showing up! We know they know each other! Batman was the one that sent Damien to the Teen Titans!
