The DC Animated Universe (DCAU) has been putting out films for years now, beginning with their adaptation of The Death of Superman aptly titled Superman: Doomsday. Now, that first outing was not their best, but it was their first and they've learned a lot since then.
Batman: Bad Blood is the third chapter that began with Son of Batman and continued with Batman vs. Robin. Here, Batman goes missing and it's up to Robin and Nightwing to keep up appearances that the Dark Knight is still out and about fighting crime, while also trying to solve the mystery of just what happened to the Caped Crusader.
If you're not a fan of these animated films, this one won't win you over. But if, like me, you are, you'll love this one. It's based on the New 52 storyline, Court of Owls. We're introduced to new characters that have their own agenda that clash not only with Batman and Co., but also the trademark villains of Gotham.
It's a fast-paced (only 72-minutes) thrill-ride that will leave you wanting more. Especially, like all the previous films they've done, with the preview for the next DCAU, Justice League vs. Teen Titans.
