This direct-to-video release is a sequel to the previous "Son of Batman" movie, in which Batman/Bruce Wayne learned that he had fathered a son, who had been raised by a gang of villains. In "Batman vs. Robin," this son (Damian) is being raised by Wayne & trained as the new "Robin." However, Damian/Robin chafes under Wayne's overprotectiveness and Batman's "no killing" rule. Damian is enticed into joining the "Court of Owls," whose vigilante justice doesn't balk at passing death sentences upon those it deems guilty. But does the Court of Owls really want Robin as a new recruit, or are they just using him as a way to get at Batman? And will Damian still want to train as Robin, even if Batman succeeds in rescuing him?
The animation looked great (superior to that of some of the more recent Batman TV series I've seen), and the "making of" featurettes were informative. The film had a relatively dark tone overall, though (often an issue for films featuring the "Dark Knight"), and so would be better for middle-school students through adults, rather than young children. For older children & teenagers, however, there are some deep moral issues raised to think about (& maybe discuss with parents). For the right audience, a worthy effort!
