A new adaptation of superheroes for the big screen is already in the national cinemas, but this time with a clear children's hue.
After five years and more than two hundred episodes in the air, the hit series of Warner Bros., broadcast by Cartoon Network, finally made the leap to the cinema and does so in the best way, making fun of all their superhero colleagues. ; s who dared to venture into the world of seventh art … and some who still do not.
It seems to these teenagers that all the great superheroes in their own films shine, all at the very least. But the leader of the group, Robin is determined to remedy the situation and is seen as a star rather than a partner. For the same reason, with a few crazy ideas and a song in their hearts, the young titans go to Hollywood, convinced that they will realize their dream. But when the group is radically misdirected by a serious supervillain and his bad plan to seize the earth, things really go wrong.
For anyone who has seen the animated series, the style of irreverent humor will not be a surprise, but for those of us who are new to the world of these peculiar superheroes, their own comedy is a big surprise. This is mainly because they are not afraid to mix the film universes and spot the icons of pop culture, a fact that is demonstrated with the constant ridicule of Stan Lee, the creator of actually all characters of Marvel and who made a cameo in all films from the MCU, but that clearly does not belong to the DCEU. For the same reason, for the fans of this genre, the fact that it has appeared several times is a pretty funny nod to the current affairs of superhero films.
But when it comes to interesting performances and pure comedy, we can not help but mention the superheroes that adorn the long list of secondary characters in the film. This is because apart from the already classic Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, we have the opportunity to see others that we did not even know at the moment, such as the swamped thing or atom. Although, when we talk about funny moments, perhaps the best of everything has to do with when the protagonists decide to return to the past to interact with the origins of each of the heroes.
Despite the fact that the film is in Spanish for most cinemas, we can not stop commenting on some Hollywood stars who give their voice to the English version, such as Nicolas Cage (Superman), Jimmy Kimmel (Batman), Patton Oswalt ( Atom), Wil Wheaton (Flash) and Nicolas Cage's son, Kal-El Cage, who ironically lends his voice to a young Bruce Wayne.
If we were to find some shortcoming in this film, perhaps the only one to come to mind is that despite the fact that it is a children's film, where the development of characters is clearly not of great importance, we were not at all concerned about us. explained from this group. And although, as we said, this is of course a small detail, for someone who comes to view this story for the first time and is not familiar with the characters, there may be doubts.
"Young Titans In Action" is a light film, with a rather peculiar sense of humor, very related to the world of superheroes, but at the same time very funny. And while in the long run the film eventually seems more like a lengthy episode, the little ones in the house will undoubtedly enjoy it.
