Gorilla Grodd's time displacement machine transports many of Batman's worst enemies to feudal Japan - along with the Dark Knight and a few of his allies. The villains take over the forms of the feudal lords that rule the divided land, with the Joker taking the lead among the warring factions. As his traditional high-tech weaponry is exhausted almost immediately, Batman must rely on his intellect and his allies - including Catwoman and the extended Bat-family - to restore order to the land, and return to present-day Gotham City.
Finally, The Batman we weebs deserve. The chariot tank at the end was the only funny scene. The character designs were cool, can't wait for the over priced figurines. It's Sengoku period, it has ninjas, it has castles that turn into mechas and they even combine, there are monkeys that form a giant monkey and bats that cover them to form a giant Batman, Batman and Joker shounen yell punch until the color is blown off. Story is good, Batman delivers the smoothest exposition dump explaining they are in Japan, Sengoku period. There's also an actual prophesy of a ninja with bat mask saving Japan. Batman actually addresses him being nothing without his tech. Animation is good, there is a short 'Sumi-e esque' animation bit which is especially nice. Sound is good, fitting music when the castles combine. Characters are Batman characters, nothing new here. Bonus one liners: "Time for some girl on girl action" - Catwoman (sadly we ain't that lucky) "It's not how you fall, but how you pick yourself up that counts" - Joker (we all know where this is from) "I'm not here for your entertainment" - Batman (pretty sure this line was in a popular song)
I'm going to start by saying that I'm a massive Batman fan. So when i heard about this I was exicted to see it, even more so when I found out that all four of the Bat boys were in it. Since this is the first time even that they have all been on screen together. However.....while the art was truly stunning, I was left feeling like this was more of a video game promo than a movie. The idea behind the moive is amazing, the way they actully did it fell short. If you know anything about Batman, Nightwing in this is okay but doens't really seem like how he is in any other animated form. Red Robin seems more like how Nightwing normaly is. Red Hood is honestly not important to the movie which is a shame. And Robin? that boy is not the Robin I know that ends up as the fourth Robin, he seems more like a young Dick Grayson than he does Damian Wayne. I recomend at least watching it to say that you have. But don't expect to much from it. I may watch the movie one more time, but i don't think i'll be buying it unless there is something else with it.
