A very good DCU animated offering with brisk action, good pacing, and compelling character drama.
Excellent tale with disturbing imagery and frequent violence
More a mash-up of two of the most highly regarded Batman stories in the last 20 years than its title implies it stands alongside the best efforts of Warner Bros. Animated.
Bolstered by a compelling story that features one of the most intriguing elements in Batman mythology, the film ranks among the best in the series so far.
[T]he climactic battle has some especially impressive close-up scenes of Batman in hand-to-hand combat that are among the best yet in these DC animated releases.
Never been a animated superhero movie fan but my kids are at that age when everything Marvel and DC is awesome to them so I put this on as it sounded pretty interesting, And in ways I was right I really enjoyed the story and the action scenes were done very well, The last 20 minutes was very good and all kids will love it, The title is abit misleading as Batman & Robin aren't really enemies they have a fight once but the story is more deeper than Robin turns bad, There's a few swear words and some of the fight scenes get abit bloody just incase you don't like to expose your kids to anything like that, It's short but sweet and will please hardcore DC fans just as much as it will please the kids.
in line with under the red hood, this is brilliant and would suit a grand film adaption. these DC animation films are leagues in front of any other adaptions. I couldn't believe how good the story was here, truely epic.
Batman VS Robin suffers from one of the most severe cases of the Law of Diminishing Ninjas I've seen since the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series finale. The film also (unsurprisingly) contains very little Batman versing Robin, and Batman also describes the odour of a ripoff Scarecrow gas that is then later said to be "odourless". But it's better than all but one of the past couple of entries into the DC Animated Film franchise, and has a wickedly creepy opening sequence. It's just a shame they couldn't keep it together for this whole Court of Owls re-imagining.
The title is kind of misleading because the movie isn't really Batman vs Robin and most Batman fans will realize that, but a casual audience will see that and think differently. The relationship between Bruce and his son Damian (introduced in Son of Batman) drives the film and is a welcome change of pace for the franchise, but everything else feels somewhat tacked on rather than an integral part of the plot. The Court of the Owls seems like a really cool storyline watching the special features and should have gotten its own film instead of being shoehorned into this one. I will definitely be reading that graphic novel now. Ultimately, it is still rather entertaining and the ending has me intrigued as to what they are going to do next. Hopefully there is another film to add onto this solid character arc they have given Damian Wayne.
