    Synopsis


    Son of Batman
    The Dark Knight (voice of Jason O'Mara) discovers that he has a son with Talia al Ghul (voice of Morena Baccarin), and that the young boy is driven by the same fiery vengeance as his crime-fighting father in this adaptation of the 2006 comic book arc by Grant Morrison. Trained as a young boy by the League of Assassins, Batman and Talia's son Damian (voice of Stuart Allan) grows convinced that his grandfather Ra's al Ghul was killed by the villainous Deathstroke (voice of Thomas Gibson). Donning Robin's suit, Damian sets out in search of violent retribution. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      To start off with this is not loosely based off the comic of the same name. Which is good if you never read it, for you will not feel left in the dark. The acting is great, Jason O'Mara from Justice League: War returns. A great cast of well known DC characters appear like Ra's al-Ghul, Talia, Ubu, Deathstroke, Alfred, Nightwing, Killer Croc and Dr. Kirk Langstrom. Animation is stellar and the action is so much fun, great fight scenes and violent. Beware parents, with regards to the violence which is mainly a burn scene and some blood loss here and there. In addition, is the language with words like "b*st*rd" and "sp*rm donor". It seems DC wants to be edgy. I don't care, but I don't know if that's a good thing or not. Yes, the character development for Damian is lacking as to why he does why he does and makes the decision he does at the end. It was suspected but why? Special features talks about both Damian and the League of Assassins, good for comic fans, 2 episodes from Batman: TAS and Batman: Brave and the Bold are offered as well. A sneak peak at Arkham Assault. Finally, DC's technical content. Last time they showed "pencil tests" for JL: War which was an over-glorified story board. This time they offer rough sketches of the character designs with commentary. Better, but they are the designs straight from the movie, not designs that weren't used. Interesting at best, but a full length commentary on the film would have been better.

      Continuing New 52 nonsense

      DC Entertainment recently announced that their line of popular and successful animated DC Comics movies would shift from their formula of adapting stories from all over their universe to creating a single, shared universe, adapting only their rebooted New 52 universe stories. The problem is that their New 52 universe is not exactly well liked. It all comes off as a vanity move by the architects of the New 52 who seem to refuse to acknowledge that people aren't responding to their experiment. This presented a problem with the prior movie, Justice League: War, where the plot was plodding, the acting was mostly weak, and everyone, including Superman and Captain Marvel, were repulsive jerks. That continues with the next New 52 movie, Son of Batman, with the same exact problems. When you spend the entire movie thinking about how much of a jerk one of your main protagonists are and how bad the voice is for the other, you've failed at making a good movie. With two complete duds in a row (and no sign of it letting up any time soon), it really feels like the end of an era.

      A Little Weird At Points

      There are parts of this movie that I really enjoy. But there are other parts that leave me scratching my head. I liked the overall idea and story line. I liked the cast of characters. I enjoyed when Nightwing got there. It just was weird watching Deathstroke, "He is, without question, the world’s greatest assassin and one of the most feared people on the planet."-DC Comics website, lose constantly to a 12 year old. I know Damian is the son of Batman and Talia al Ghul. I know he was raised in the League of Shadows. But Slade has got to have at least 30 years experience on this kid and can barely seem to even get a hit in. Maybe he can't find it in himself to kill a kid, I don't know. So other than that it was a fine movie. The acting was good. The writing was good. The animation and cinematic style was good. I wouldn't say it's a must buy, but maybe if you can get it on sale it's worth picking up.

      2014 marks the 75th anniversary of the Batman character, and while Warner Bros. and DC Comics didn't release any live action movie, they did deliver one of two Animated Movies. The first one Son Of Batman is based off the story arc Batman and Son from the comic books were Talia al Ghul reveals to Batman they have a son together. This marks the second time that Damian Wayne has been adapted into another media and this one is more faithful. Bruce Timm and company brings this movie to you and they have a great track record with the DC Universe Animated Original Movies line. If your'e a fan of Batman, Damian Wayne, or even Deathstroke I highly recommend this movie. However this is not a straight up adaptation of Batman and Son and elements of the story have been change.

      DC just couldn't decide if this storyline for kids or adults. You get a lame Deathstroke character that is not anyway close to the mid-level villain from Teen Titans. Morena Baccarin is a terrific actress but her talents are wasted on the lame dialogue and plot. Ras Al Ghul is killed too early, too quickly and too easily. Damian, the son of Batman is a bratty, Kung Fu Jimmy Neutron and just torture waiting for his scenes to end with Batman or Bruce Wayne. The beginning assault scene was just ridiculous and unbecoming of the League of Assassins. Batman as the father was just too easy for Bruce Wayne because no one is that good as a first time Dad not even Alfred. Plot and storyline needed a lot more work more and it shows from its simplicity and superficial theme.

      Son of Batman has all the makings of a great addition to your DC animated universe library, but falls flat in the end result. Maybe if I watch it several times over it may eventually grow on me... but lot likely. If you love the other DC animated movies then the desire to see this one/ or add it to your collection will be as great as mine, but you will be overall disappointed with this outing. Thomas Gibson is the voice of Deathstroke and I love the actor, but I loathe the "hammed up" job he did with this. The story is disjointed, the action is great, but we've seen better. It all just looks and feels rushed, making me think that with more time, a better movie could have been in there somewhere... rent it first, if you can. Just don't go buy it like I did.

      Not the greatest of the more recent animated Batman films. Overall the plot was weak. Considering this was supposed to be Ra's Al Ghul's grandson and the son of both Batman and Talia, I found it to have a dull plot, poor voice acting, the portrayal of Deathstroke was insulting to true fans, the message conveyed for this movie was awkward when it’s alright to kill and just like the movie "Justice League: War", it tried to be a mature film by showcasing violence and bloodshed rather than dealing with the consequences of all that action. It almost felt like the producers were conflicted between Batman doing his usual fighting crime without killing anyone and Deathstroke, Killer Crock and Ra's Al Ghul's way of kill as a means to dominate.

      Son of Batman is a boy to be proud of

      Son of Batman follows Batman's discovery of his heretofore unknown son. Years ago, after a brief romance with the daughter of Ra's Al-Ghul, Batman became a father but his son was raised in secret, groomed to take over the League of Assassins. That all changed following a coup and the boy is sent to Gotham City to live with his father. Batman's son, Damian, is no ordinary child, he is a trained killer who wants blood! The movie is very good with great action and several laughs but suffers for an unlikeable character in Damian and weak dialogue. The comic series from which it was based, Batman and Son, also presented Damian as unlikeable at first but he grew overtime. Hopefully the film version is given the chance to grow on me too.
