Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This Cartoon Network feature-length animation manages to teach kids some good lessons and amuse the grown-ups without overdosing on pop-culture references."
‑ Hank Sartin, Chicago Reader
"The slam-bang superheroics are kinetic enough to engross even the most antsy youngsters."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"This would have been much better had it been reduced to a one hour episode on television rather than a stretched feature film."

‑ Alan Morrison, Empire Magazine

‑ Michael Dequina,
"It is not boring, and looks fantastic, and maintains the wit and spirit of the original."
‑ Robert Lloyd, L.A. Weekly
"This is one freaky and annoying little film."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"The animation is refreshingly retro minimalist and saturated with pastels (including the colored vapor trails of the little heroines), and the action is nonstop."
‑ Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review
"[It] may be formulaic but never fails to find other ways to entertain."
‑ Michael Dequina, Film Threat
"The movie is just not fun enough."
‑ Margaret A. McGurk, Cincinnati Enquirer
