- Complete Monster: See here.
- It's Short, So It Sucks!: Almost all of the films have a 75-80 minute length, the minimum required for a film to be considered feature-length which makes for rather condensed storytelling.
- They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: Some fans initially disliked the art styles which they felt are inferior to the DCAU Timm Style.
- What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: These movies pull no punches when it comes to violence, with some pushing their PG-13 ratings to the limit. This doesn't stop uninformed parents from thinking that these movies are perfectly acceptable for children. It certainly didn't stop Cartoon Network from airing Superman: Doomsday (which was aired on their action block Toonami, edited for a TV-PG-V rating) and Batman: Gotham Knight (aired during regular daytime hours, and edited for a TV-14 rating).
