So I normally love the DC animated movies, with very few exceptions (Batman: Year One *cough*). But even that one is more of an issue with the source material. But this? This...

I just watched Son of Batman, and it's the funniest movie I've seen in forever.

Bear in mind, it's so not trying to be. It opens up with tons of gore, death, stabbing, mutilation, sexual innuendos, etc. But there's just so...much...stupid. The opening is an army of gun-wielding ninjas with helicopters blasting up the League of Shadows. Naturally, they win against sword wielders. But not before catapults firing boulders take down several of the helicopters. Also, Talia wields a gatling cannon that fires arrows. Yes. Arrows. And she brings down several helicopters with it, too, because arrows.

Ras al Ghul, of course, is awesome. He gets surrounded on all sides by six gunmen, who all fire machine guns simultaneously. He blocks them all. With his sword. Even ignoring that stupidity, for every twelve shots you'll hear fired in the audio, they'll only do about three blocking sounds/animations. So it ends up looking like these soldiers are just firing tons of blanks while Ras twirls his sword around like an idiot.

Whatever. Ras dies, Talia (who is just around to show off her breasts...even while chained up as a prisoner she's splayed out all sexy-like, chest bulging like some weird gravity-defying melons got surgically implanted into her frontal area) brings her son to Batman, who's the father. And then it gets funny...and insanely annoying simultaneously.

First off: Talia admits to roofing Batman, and then having sex with him, which led to Damian. I just...sure. Let's go with that. Batman getting roofied, can I see that movie instead?

Seriously, I imagined that actually happened after they released this film. I truthfully have no idea how this movie, which should have been AWESOME, went so wrong (other than Bruce Timm leaving WB). In a nutshell, this film is based on the 2006 graphic novel "Batman & Son" by Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert, in which Talia Al Ghul reveals their son to Batman with the hopes of disrupting his work so Batman cannot interfere with Talia's current evil scheme. Now that you have read that, throw that idea out of the window, as this film ignored that central plot entirely. Instead, the motivation for having Damian meet his father is due to an uprising led by Deathstroke against the League of Assassins that leaves Ra's Al Ghul dead in its wake. That in itself sounds like it could be an alright movie, however the film was just executed terribly. The entire plot line involving the Man-Bat ninjas becomes entirely irrelevant by the end of the film, leaving half the film as nothing more than a waste of time. The characterizations of a few of the main characters were just plain offensive to me as a fan of the comics, most notably Deathstroke and Talia. The filmmakers made Deathstroke a complete coward; he ran from every single fight he was matched up in, and let a ten year old kid cut his eye out, and because of that, he abandoned a surefire victory against the League of Assassins. Talia became nothing more than a damsel in distress that liked to show off as much cleavage as possible, and I feel pretty confident in saying that this isn't the Talia Batman has had a love-hate relationship with over the years. The voice cast was atrocious, with the only two cast members actually doing a good job being David McCallum as Alfred and Sean Maher as Dick Grayson/Nightwing (who, once again, is criminally under-used).Read more ›

This film, based off of the comic run Batman & Son, written by Grant Morrisson, while not my favorite, was a good and enjoyable read. This film however does not retain the enjoyable qualities from the comic and drops the ball. This film is dead out of the gate.

While I didn't enjoy the film overall, I am not all negative, there were a few highlights of this film:

Animation - The quality of the animation, especially in some of the busier, more action-heavy scenes is very well-done. I particularly liked the hand-to-hand combat scenes between some of the characters.

Character Cast - While the inclusion of a specific characters was baffling, I did enjoy that they included a decent cast of characters.

As to the reasons why I disliked this film:

Story - This film had it's plot handed to them on a silver platter, and instead of streamlining it and keeping the important content, cutting off the fat, they almost entirely changed the basis for most of what occurs in the overarching plot. This, sadly, led to this film feeling like an hour long trope full of contrived events and characters.

Run Time - This is one of the slightly shorter films in the DCAU, and it is all the more worse for it. On the contrast, it is ironically an empty feeling film with this condensed run time. It takes little to no time for character development or bonding, yet has some rather long action and fast-paced scenes, feeling rather unbalanced throughout the run.

Characters - The characters in here are just sadly lacking in development, they are all very two-dimensional and without any real sense of, well, character or believability.
