The worst Batman movie I've seen

All right, so a bit of background first. I'm not a hardcore Batman fan or anything, meaning that I haven't read the comics and so I don't know everything about the universe and how well this movie adheres to its source material. I've seen Under the Red Hood, Mask of Phantasm, Year One, Dark Knight Returns and obviously Nolan's new trilogy and I enjoyed The Arkham Asylum and Arkham City games immensely. I thought all of those movies were great - Dark, gritty, intense and serious. Not so with this film.

First of all, the voice acting is terrible overall and the cringe worthy dialogue didn't help either. It tries to be humorous while failing at it badly. From the voice actors I'd highlight Thomas Gibson as Deathstroke, he didn't portray any emotion or intensity at all. None of the other voice actors didn't even rise to average. That's really a show stopper when it comes to animated films because so much of the emotion is conveyed through voice. I'm not sure how they recorded the lines but it felt like there was little to no interaction between the actors, it just sounded like they were delivering their lines independently.

I'm not really sold on the animation and graphical style either, Bruce Wayne especially looked really wrong to my eyes at least. Talia al Ghul had her boobs on display quite...prominently. A big problem with this movie was with the physics and how they tried to bring completely different elements together here. The kid Damian is supposedly fighting almost equally with Nightwing and he's also kicking a 200 kg muscle monster through windows and parries his attacks with ease. Then he just goes ahead and casually goes for a 50 mile swim, just like that. I mean, come on. That's completely over the top ridiculous. There's always some suspension of disbelief you have to give these movies but this was just too far. There could be a way to have Damian fight these different larger and stronger guys with speed and stealth while making it at least plausible but they didn't go for that approach.

Then there's an arrow minigun and some catapults dropping helicopters like they're flies and Ra's al Ghul using a katana like a lightsaber to deflect assault rifle bullets from soldiers who are surrounding him. It all seemed so preposterous and set this nonsensical tone for the entire movie. You don't feel any tension or suspense when they try to bring up anything serious. The tone is all over the place. Damian hacking into NORAD at age six? Daffy Duck on TV? People being impaled to a wall from their hands? My brain can't handle this, this movie just differed so radically from all of the Batman related stuff I'd seen before. No surprise that this is the director's first crack at the Batman franchise. I just didn't find anything interesting or evocative in this film.

Some ludicrous moments ruin a good film

A ten year old who can swim 50 miles. A 500 year old who can deflect hundreds of bullets from six assailants using assault rifles simultaneously with an ordinary metal sword... A serum that can turn people into bats because... Well just because. Then another serum that can turn them back instantly.

It was all too silly and cartoonish. This isn't the Batman who would out-think himself out of a tough situation. On several occasions he has to be rescued, which is just not Batman. But they break the realism aspect of the world multiple times and with it, you start caring less and less because it just gets stupid.

There was no fight between Batman and Damian, which was needed to show how their relationship builds and makes their love/hate situation evolve. There was no anger or jealousy from Night-wing. No proud grandfather thoughts from Alfred. Talias father is killed and she doesn't care. No one cared about anyone and so we stopped caring as well. There was no emotional connection between any of the characters even though the plot was screaming out for it. They just all fell flat and dull.

It looked nice, but at only 70 minutes I kept thinking that there was so much more they could have done to build on their relationships.

Its a meh movie. You'll watch it as passable entertainment but forget about it the next minute.

DC has done much, much better...

Marvel dominates the live action stuff but, until DC catches up, they have the animated film department mastered…until they released "Son of Batman." I'm not one to complain about the changes made from adapting a book, graphic novel or comic (and this one had A LOT of changes), instead, the problem that hurt my enjoyment of this one had to due with the fact the story was just really weak and the dialogue was absolutely terrible.

While the film follows the predictable lines of a man finding out he has a son and has to somehow connect with them despite the fact they have been alienated from each other for a significant amount of time, the movie fails to hit that requirement of the two finding common ground and they learn, laugh, love and grow together. Yes, "Son of Batman" ends with Batman and his son Damian being a good team and Damian even becomes Robin, the problem is that we don't really see them grow. Damian is a bratty little snob of a child up until he gets the exact thing he wants and is the one thing Batman keeps trying to teach him not to cling to and then *BAM* they are all good and their common ground is found and are now the best of besties. It was a very weak attempt at family drama and matters aren't helped by the fact the film has terrible dialogue to back it up.

Some will write off these complaints as nothing because the film is "just a cartoon, man," but when you compare this film to the other, numerous quality films that DC has released based on their characters and their iconic stories, this film just feels like a letdown and something that was thrown together too quickly.

What's up, brother? Feel like reading more of my rants, ramblings, geek references, bad jokes, and other movie reviews (like a more in-depth look at "Son of Batman" and other animated Batman movies that, thankfully, don't include his annoying son)? If you do, you can visit my blog at revronmovies.blogspot.com. If you don't and hate me now (because hating people is easy on the internet), I just want you to know that I still think you are a beautiful person and want to make you some chocolate chip cookies.
