The story is a bit of the new school ninjas, (led by Slade Wilson), taking over from the old school, (led by Ra's al Ghul). The New school seem to have the advantage of not being shy about using guns and bazookas and missiles. Ra seems to have the Jedi ability to deflect bullets with his blade despite being surrounded or fired on by machine gun rapid fire. I do like this incarnation of Ra it does show how deadly he is. To become the undisputed leader of the League of Assassins my must kill the Al Ghul blood line including Damian. Knowing this Talia, take puts Damian under the protection of the father he has never met. Everyone seems to accept this incredibly well. Especially the suspicious to the point of paranoid Bruce. Damian seems to suffer the superior rich boy complex, making him just completely unlikable. I have to agree with Alfred in his statement "I am for the shrubbery". Something that does not seem to add up is Ra seem to favour old to little technology, yet Damian seem to have enough computer skills to hack into through the Bat-computer systems like a Knife through butter.
This is an action orientated, ninja fest. As long as you accept that going into the film. If you like that you will love this, if you prefer more story with action Batman: Under The Red Hood [DVD]  would be a better choice.
I felt that the animation in particular on this film was incredible with the action scenes slick, exciting and above all intense. I thought that the changes that had to be made to the existing stories were handled sympathetically. However i would say that if you were just stumbling onto Batman animated films then this would not be the best to start with. There is plenty of assuming that the vieiwer is aware of some of the Mythology (Batman has a Son and the villains motivations etc)
I would say that this is a fine addition to an already existing collection, but if you are wanting to start one then choose the animated series, or if you just want an amazing film pick under the red hood.
Damian is bloodthirsty and Batman struggles to temper his will; trying to teach him that you do not fight crime by being a criminal. But when Deathstroke's master plan becomes apparent, the Dark Knight will have to team up with the impetuous young Damian to topple them, will they suceed? Time will tell...
Son of Batman is an excellently animated adventure, credit to Warner Animation who have done a sterling job. The action is constant with some excellent characters making an appearance; Nightwing, Killer Croc, Manbats and a prominent performance from Alfred. Whilst Damian is an impetuous little SOB (Son of Batman) - he is skilled and earns Batman's respect. The story is solid but the action is a little over the top sometimes - an eight-year-old being able to go sword to sword with a 400lb body builder and hold his ground is a bit much, as are arrow launching mini-guns and trebuchets able to take out moving helicopters. Despite these points, this is a great addition to the DC animated universe.
This film is very loosely based on the Batman and Son story by Grant Morrison and by very loosely I mean it bears very little resemblance to the original (if you are a fan of that particular story don't say you weren't warned) the basic story is that after an assault on the league of assassins Talia decides the safest place for her son Damien is with his father, who just happens to be Batman what follows is a pretty standard revenge story but with the added element of Damien trying to balance his training and nature with the less severe wishes of his father, unfortunately though this dual nature is not really touched on a huge amount but with only a 74 minute run time action is more prevalent then character development, the voice work generally is good Jason O'Mara seems to have found his range with his second outing as Batman and Stuart Allan does a very good job as Damien giving him both an adult edge but also keeping the juvenile arrogance that you would expect from a ten year old assassin, the rest of the cast have their moments but for most other characters screen time is quite limited apart from one and that one is my biggest problem.Read more ›

Enjoyed it. Too bad that while following the Morison arc to some extent, the storyboard had cut off the Paul Dini parts, thereby reducing the humour quotient. Read morePublished 14 days ago by RIJU GANGULY
