CommentsXp Best movie ever!
Afouotos Although it has its amusing moments, in eneral the plot does not convince.
Mathilde the Guild Although I seem to have had higher expectations than I thought, the movie is super entertaining.
Logan By the time the dramatic fireworks start popping off, each one feels earned.
tankace Son of Batman is a loose adaptation of Grant Morrison's and Andy Kubert's Batman story arc titled Batman and Son. In which we see as Batman is introduced to his son by Talia Al Ghul ,the daughter of Ra's Al Ghul ,who after an attack of Deathstroke Talia is forced to send Damian (that's who she named him) to Batman. Is the movie good, well yes it is a solid Bat's story with good action, an interesting story and mostly nice characters.Does it have issues? Yes and I will start with them.Firstly and more important the portrait of Deathstroke, it is totally inaccurate ,for he is shown willing to kill Damian and been a second in command of Ra's and he cheats in order to kill him. This is wrong on so many levels that I can't right it all down. But to keep it simple Slade was a U.S marine who joined a super-soldier program, became a mercenary and has a strict code of honor. Which means that he would never hurt intentionally children and cheat a fight!The second issue for me is that the Man-Bat army though an interesting idea to weaponize them ,they are treated as a generic swarm of enemies and not as super assassins. That would be much better and so the full potential of the experiments of Dr. Langstrom! Never the less the rest are good enough in order to make me not bother to much for those problems.To start the animation fits perfectly with the brutal fight scenes and the tone of the movie. Now I personally don't like the anime style in DC animated movies but her is done well so I will give it a pass.Next the story is really good for we see Bruce dealing with the problems of parenthood and I was quit entertain by that as well as the fact he is one of the persons of the world who can understand what it means to have a tough childhood. As he said to Damian"I may had traumas but I had friends and family to keep me down and well, as far as I understand you only had trainers". Truth be told Damian never knew anything else than training so Bat's quote is to the point.Lastly and that is my personal opinion the voice acting died a fantastic work bringing these iconic characters to life and their portrayal was done ,apart from Deathstroke, in a respective manner to the source material.All in all here we have a fine DC animated film and if you want go watch it. It has my approval.
adonis98-743-186503 Son of Batman is based on the comic where Talia leaves Damian to go to Gotham and find his father Bruce Wayne A.k.a Batman but there's one problem his son is pretty messed up and rude. The problem with Damian is always that he's a 50/50 character there are times where he actually acts as a Robin or a hero and others that he's annoying and stupid but even tho he does the same in this it was the first film where they introduced him so i was fine with that but when Justice League v.s Teen Titans came out it actually bugged me a lot. I still liked tho as a movie Damian fights Deathstroke, Ras dies, Batman goes against Man-Bat and Killer Croc and i liked that seeing good villains in an actual good film besides the 6.7 rating.
spikeprime This is the single worst Batman movie to date. I truly believe this is worse than Batman and Robin, because at least that film is funny.The plot makes no sense, the villain's motivations are frankly ridiculously stupid and nonsensical, the fights are uninspired, Damian Wayne is at his worst in terms of insufferable characterisation and insipid, mean-spirited dialogue, the voice acting ranges from fairly good to the worst I've heard in professional animation.Deathstroke is changed from an incredible and intelligent fighter into a pathetic, idiotic bumbler who gets knocked out with one punch from Batman. The supposedly unstoppable army of Man-Bats are actually less effective and far dumber than normal human beings, and stopped in one of the weakest anti-climaxes I've ever seen. The plot is so poorly handled that I honestly started to laugh out loud at what were supposed to be tense scenes. That's not even getting into the scene between Batman and Talia which seems to suggest the writers are rape apologists--yes, Bruce states he was drugged and raped by Talia, but that it was "not all bad" which is undoubtedly the most horribly awful thing I've heard in a DC movie.Bottom line, I only recommend this to people if you want a truly hilariously inept film to watch and laugh about with your friends, which is precisely what I did after trying to watch it on my own.
utgard14 Okay adaptation of the Grant Morrison comic book story. Obviously they reworked it and changed some stuff (not for the better, as usual). As with most DCAU movies lately, the animation is unimpressive and the voicework is spotty. I can't stress enough how much I hate Jason O'Mara's Batman. Far too nasally. I miss Kevin Conroy. But the worst is Thomas Gibson as Deathstroke. The opening scene between Deathstroke and Ra's Al Ghul is like something out of a parody of '70s kung-fu movies, complete with over the top voices. Stuart Allan does the best job as Damian. This character is not surprisingly the best part of the movie.As with most of these DVD movies of late, they seem to have abandoned trying to reach an audience outside of the devoted comic book fan. I watched it with someone who knows nothing of Batman outside of the movies and I had to explain quite a bit of stuff that the script didn't bother with. For example, when Nightwing shows up, my friend was lost as to who he was and why he was there. The movie doesn't explain it, just tosses him in with the assumption the entire audience already knows his story and connection to Batman. Very sloppy and lazy but it's par for the course these days with DCAU. Anyway, despite my issues with it and it not being anything close to perfect, it's enjoyable and I was never bored. If you're a hardcore fanboy you'll probably love it. If you've never read the story this was based on, I would suggest you keep Wikipedia handy.
