      Not for those who read the books.

      To start I would like to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed the Animated movies that DC and WB have had to offer. With all the hype and excitement of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies and takeover of cinema all together, its nice to see that DC can still dish out some punches as far as movies go. This movie had its high points and low points. If you have read the comic books or graphic novels that contain the Court of Owls you would probably agree with me that there were too many holes in the story and origin of this incredible force opposite of Batman and Bruce Wayne. The changes in the story are disappointing and drastic. If they had done what Batman Year one and The Dark Knight Returns had done and kept the core of the story and change small things here and there. I wasn't expecting this story at all with the title of the movie. The relationship between Bruce and Damian was surprisingly done well, even though the movie before this it seems that they got along well in the end, and the fight scenes had great angles and action. I admit i cringed when Nightwings arms and legs were impaled by the Talons. There are plenty of extra special features also. I believe 4 full episodes 2 of which I recognize and I believe i remember watching from the old 90's Batman and the Superman animated series. I have yet to watch the 2 Featurettes that pertain to The Court of Owls for fear of further disappointment. I give this a 2 star rating only because of the great portrayal of rebellion from Robin and the fact that Dick Grayson was featured. But the plot holes, the missing scenes with Batman going completely mental, and the amazing story to the secrets of The Court of Owls completely being cut out from the main movie held this back from what could have possible been the greatest Batman movie ever. I recommend everyone to pick up the the New 52 Batman issues 1- 15, or 16 I can't recall, or graphic novels. As far as the movie goes I would say it is only worth a rental.

      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!

      Part 2 of an Arc

      Batman vs Robin had a decent start but the ending was a letdown. Continuing on from Son of Batman, the relationship between Bruce and his son Damian is still shaky. Damian still shows the objectives of a League of Assassin member by wanting to kill which comes into conflict with his father. Factor in the Court of Owls, a society so old that it dates back to the days of old Gotham, adds more problems to the mix. One of the courts assassin's decided to try and turn Damian against his father by trying to make him kill. He offers to train Damian further which puts a strain on the relationship between him and his dad. In the end, Damian comes to his senses, turns of the assassin and helps his father take down the Court. After it's all said and done, Bruce and Damian have a father-son moment and learn to respect each other. Overall a decent continuation of Batman and Robin's story arc. Part 3 is Batman: Bad Blood

      The movie rocks but let's face it, you clicked this tab because you want the figure. For starters, this is the start on a new collection. It's bigger than the others and does not move at all. I'm little let down. If like me you collect these figures your collection now has 3 batmans and no Robin or Nightwing. Sad that the old collection will feel incomplete as several characters were skipped while others were repeated. So the new collection; if we are starting over then cool that it's Batman but promise us some sidekicks down the road. Also, if it's going to be a static pose, give the pose some drama. If you are up for starting a new collection or just don't care, then carry on and hit order, it's still a cool collectable for batman fans. If not click the blue ray DVD pack. It's the same copy you'll get here but no figure and you'll save a few bucks.

      Even Better Than The Last

      You kind of have to see Son Of Batman to understand the relationships going on here. Or read the comics. But after a quick explanation of the Robin dynamics my wife sat and watched the whole thing with me. She doesn't even like cartoons much. Still, she enjoyed this movie. I probably wouldn't recommend this for young children. There's some advanced subjects happening in a few spots here. It's a nice sequel to the last Batman movie with the same actors and feel. So if you liked Son Of Batman you'll like this one more. If you didn't like the last one, you'll like this one better. If you have a teenager you'll need to see this. Cause at least you don't have to set up the same security system Bruce does to keep his kid from sneaking out, lol.

      This was a great film

      This was a nice follow up to the Son of Batman. However most comic book fans would not like the fact that this film was made up of two graphic novels combined. “The Court of Owls” & “Batman vs Robin were both combined to make this film. I would suggest that fans should read both books to get further enjoyment and get better insight to this animated movie. I would also suggest that fans pick up the Blu Ray/DVD to get more bang for the buck of this project. One of the things that I didn’t like about this film is that they made Nightwing look like a herb. Why dump on a great character like Dick Grayson to introduce Damian Wayne. There was also a Young Justice joke in this movie! LOL! I hope you’ll catch it...

      alright let me start off by saying this review is not for the movie but more for the figure that comes with the movie, the movie itself is pretty good, being a big fan of the Court of Owls arc, i really enjoyed seeing some scenes fully animated, the reason this is getting only 2 stars is because of the figure that comes with the movie, I have been collecting these best buy exclusive figures that come with the DC animated movies for awhile, and for some reason they decided to change the figure for this movie, which to some may be a small thing but for me i don't like how it throws off the rest of the collection, that is the only reason this gets 2 stars

      I enjoyed this entry into the DCAU, however, as a fan who loved The Court Of Owls storyline in the comics, I felt that they should have stayed with the original source material. I understand that the DCAU is attempting to build some continuity, and thus felt the need to include Robin following 'Son of Batman' and the adaptation to fit this works pretty well, but the source material is just flat out better. I still recommend the movie as I enjoyed it, but if you are a comic fan (or even someone that hasn't been before but enjoys these movies) I would highly recommend checking out the graphic novel.
