Although the trailer had me expecting a certain new style of film, I can't say I was disappointed when the film definitely felt like a new BTAS (Batman; The Animated Series) feature (as it was produced by some alumni).
It's an early coming of Batman story that explores some of his training and existence in the world of the martial arts and we meet some characters who were a part of it.
If there's anything At&T WB DC don't do wrong (in most cases) is their animated features: standalone, else-world films you can enjoy with feeling the need to connect them to each other (in most cases) Definitely worth your time and bits!

Awesome animation , I like how it have an 80’s vibe to it . Story was pretty decent a little back ground on Bruce is always welcomed, The 4K looks nice and sounds great , I would recommend this for your collection.
I enjoyed this animated film .Because I enjoy comics I appreciate the DC animated world .Animation takes the fan to a much closer engagement with the subject matter ,namely superheroes .This story sheds more light on Batman and his path to becoming the "Dark Knight"We are shown that the Batman journey to who he has become was no cake walk ,his history is colorful and complex .The voice actors are good more dept is revealed regarding the supporting characters ,Richard Dragon in the comics was white but in the film he is clearly presented as tribute to Bruce Lee as well as the African -American characters homage to Jim Kelly .Animation is limitless ,the story was good ,it added to the Batmans Mythos I'd recommend it.
So a mysterious group of snake themed bad guys has a plan that only the greatest martial artists in the DC universe can stop.
The art style is slightly different from some of the other DC animated films that I've seen, but it still looks good.
The voice acting was well done and the music was fitting to the show.
Lately, I've been seeing Batman related video games and movies (this 1 as well) and such where everyone knows Batman is Bruce Wayne and it's kind of annoying. The point of secret identities is to keep both sides of life apart. It kind of removes something in the narrative for me watching this when all the other characters know his secret identity.
Richard Dragon is DC's answer to Iron Fist, so in this show having him look so different than in the comic books, kind of removes the authenticity in the character in this show for me.
I also don't like that there is not a solid ending, but more of an implied 1. It would have been better to have a longer film to show everything. What's the point if you are going to show me all?
While it's not bad, nor a total loss, I think there are other DC animated films that are much better.

Nice twist to a Batman movie
Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.
70s eras Kung Fu themes with a Bronze Tiger limited edition figurine are all the reasons to purchase this product. Being a Batman fan alone was the primary reason I was looking forward to this movie. But also being a huge Michael Jai White fan I had to have the Bronze Tiger figurine to commemorate the brother and his second rendition of the character aside from the live action version he did on the Arrow TV show. Shiva is bad B as always. Happy to see Richard Dragon playing an Asian role for once. Totally geeking out over this one. And I Iove the fact that Bruce got his behind handed to him by Ben Turner lol.
Fun take on the Batman Mythos. Very 70's. Good Plot. The version I bought was the Limited Edition with the Action Figure. ( For the First Time Ever, I got a low serial number.. 0003 out 6 or 8 thousand, I forget which). As expected, the sound and animation quality on this 4k disk is Fantastic. I buy all the DC Animated Movies, they seldom fail to impress.
This was an okay movie. It was interesting with a lot (maybe too many) flashbacks, and was a decent martial arts flick, but a Batman movie it wasn't. I mean, he's in the movie, but for being the title of the movie, he's kind of a minor character with a role that could have been filled by anyone. It's like they're only using the name now to sell a film instead of making a cool or interesting Batman film. I guess it would have been a hard sell since everyone else is a relatively minor character and none of them could really headline the movie and generate sales (except to hardcore fans), but still he has a relatively throw-away role. Still, it's not bad and the animation id decent. The extras are meh, but additions of the ninja episodes from animated series are great to have. Worth a look.
