Review

After the last 2 Batman animated movies that I’ve seen (Dark Knight Returns and Year One) I was really looking forward to this and it let me down.

Voice acting was pretty shaky, dialogue was cliched, animation was lacking any polish (except the vehicles) the relationship building between Batman and Damian was rushed and it felt like the makers were just going through the motions to get it released as quickly as possible.

I haven’t read the Grant Morrison comic on which it’s based (it’s on the list) but I’m a fan of Morrison and I can’t believe the comic will be as rushed and the plot as obvious and monotonous as the movie.

2.5 Stars (2.5 / 5)
