Movie Info

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.

  • As adept as the animation unit usually is at bringing the tone of the comics to the screen, at times this feels like a sitcom premise.

  • Ends up feeling like a massive case of style over substance, a movie mishandled in so many ways.

  • Batman becomes not just a father figure to a young sidekick but in fact a father, trying to teach his arrogant and highly talented ninja assassin of a son a less fatal approach to combat and crimefighting.

  • The worst from the DC library yet.

  • Violent and noirish Batman is engaging but cynical.

  • Neither terrific nor terrible, Son of Batman bears some similarities to a Saturday morning Batman cartoon; it's fast-paced, action-packed, entirely disposable and extremely fun at times.

    Pretty average DC animated film but it does have a good story, That being said there was a good portion of the story that could of been left out and it still would of had the same outcome, It had some great bloody fight scenes that are really the best thing about this movie, It felt rushed at times and I didn't like the voice cast on most characters but if you're a fan of Batman then you will enjoy but soon forget about this film.

    deathstroke is a great villain and this film is definitely a return to form after a few disappointments. Batman, Nightwing and Robin, what else could we want in this action packed film.

    Not the greatest of the recent animated Batman films, but certainly an entertaining little diversion that fans of Batman can appreciate. It has some pretty cool action sequences that are some of the best animation I've seen in a DC animated movie so far. The story is a little bit thin and the running time is short, but this is brisk and very well paced. Some of the voice acting isn't very good, but others are decent. It neither detracts or enhances the film really. I wouldn't mind a continuation of this story since it is left pretty open ended. If you like Batman I see no reason to not recommend this.

    It's a shame DC doesn't put this much effort into it's live-action films.
