Could you imagine if they made a live action version of this movie? Allowing Joel Schumacher free reins over the movie after seeing which direction he was taking the franchise with the previous movie. Allow George Clooney to play Batman as gay. Heretic returns to his headquarters where it is revealed that he is working for Talia al Ghul. I am actually a fan of Clooney but his performance in this movie is disgraceful to say the least. Then again, that could just be Batman seeking to reaffirm his own paranoid suspicions about Damian's nature.
If you choose Watch Now, the video will instantly stream to your computer and you may later stream it on another compatible device. I also have mixed feelings about how dark this film gets sometimes. It was a huge retcon-heavy piece of crap. On one hand, I applaud the filmmakers for taking risks. Both Batman and Damian come out of this movie noticeably changed but also in a way that's not shoved in your face like it was with Nolan's Dark Knight movies.
Robin' Synopsis: While Damian Wayne struggles to cope with Batman's no- killing rule, he soon starts to believe that his destiny lies within a secret society known as, The Court of Owls. The main villain Talon is also quite interesting as he bonds with Damian and tries to steer him away from Batman's guidance. On a nearby building, Batgirl observes the group launch their chase and fires her own grappling gun to join the pursuit. Similar to the Superman series of the 50's. It serves as a sequel to the 2015 film Batman vs. Batman flings Batwoman to safety and apparently perishes in the explosion.
The first film suffered from a weak story and dialogue and overall felt like a neutered adaptation of the comics. As with the last movie, Son of Batman, Damian is the best part of this. Batwoman intercepts a group of criminals in Gotham City that includes Electrocutioner, Tusk, Firefly, Killer Moth, and others. Join superheroes Batman Robert Lowery and Robin Johnny Duncan as they help Commissioner Gordon Lyle Talbot, Glen or Glenda, Plan 9 From Outer Space battle The Wizard, a villianous madman who steals a top-secret remote device allowing him to control all the moving vehicles in Gotham. Because then we probably could talk about the best animated Batman movie up to this point. The studio must have learned from this as more emphasis is put on characters and goes for a more mature feel.
I, a great fan of the comics, did not find this amusing at all. Perhaps primitive by today's incredible technological marvels, this movie is nonetheless very well done, for the standards of the day. Any way this by far the best Batman films of the New 52 and I recommended to every Bat-fan out there. The Talon, the Court's main assassin, is great though he does some very extreme things. They begin their own investigations into the Heretic, unconvinced that Bruce is truly dead. So think about that, as well as the overly complicated plot only the initiated can follow, before you subject your kids to this. It is revealed that she was traumatized when she, her sister Elizabeth and her mother Gabrielle were abducted and held for ransom, although she was the only one not killed by her captors before her father rescued her.
This is just more back story on the many Talons over the course of generations and what they all do. Knowing all the lore and stories, I am especially critical of movies or comics. As for the villains, the Court of Owls, are excellently ingrained to the mythology of Gotham and compare to them the Illuminati look ridiculous and childish. In my honest opinion this could in fact be the worst movie. As a result of this philosophical conflict between Damian, and Bruce Wayne, Damian is forced into a lifestyle of isolation.
Not just Jason O'Mara, Stuart Allan and Sean Maher but particularly Weird Al Yankovic and Jeremy Sisto. Though Talon is an enjoyable villain, his employers are underdeveloped in motivations and plans. But here he's a little more like an actual child and it works for the most part especially when Bruce tries to build a relationship with him. Batman and Robin's suits have nipples but when Batgirl makes her entrance notice the lack of the same. Oliva usually delivers top quality with the animated films he directs. I still remain a critic of Jason O'Mara's nasally Batman. It's not written in a way that this type of story normally ends with and it's also a bit emotional showing that Bruce and Damian really care for each other.
Batman and Robin are back working side-by-side to stop the villains of Gotham City, but is there tension appearing between them, especially when one villainess who calls herself Poison Ivy can make anyone fall in love with her. They are quickly joined by Luke Fox, clad in an advanced combat exosuit and styling himself as Batwing. But on the other hand it also feels like they were trying too hard to be dark and it reeks a bit of realism and trying too hard to make Batman horror. I will say is just seemed way too dark for animated. Fun fact: This is written by J. I love Damian Character by the way is someone who thinks that their way is the better and His relationship with Bruce his father fell more natural in this sequel. Meanwhile, Katherine is suddenly attacked by her father.
Trust me, the comics were worse. Several fight scenes actually had me gasping with shock as to how poor they are. Some of the voice acting is very good Robin, Talon and some pretty bad especially Batman. So the writers realized that it would be better to make him more likable than in the first movie where he was basically an almost unbearable prick. The animation looks fabulous, and the action scenes are wonderful to watch.
