And a new player, Batwoman, investigates Batman's disappearance. Alfred covers for him while Nightwing and Robin patrol Gotham City in his stead. There was a little bit of hope with Batman Vs Robin and even the animated Suicide Squad movie but after watching this trash.. She takes up the majority of this film and makes it nearly unwatchable.
And a new player, Batwoman, investigates Batman's disappearance. after watching Batman Bad Blood, I am officially giving up on all upcoming DC animated films. The people marketing this lame piece of trash knew they couldn't call the movie "Bat-woman: Bad Blood" because no one would buy it.
She goes toe to toe with Talia Al Ghul without missing a beat.
I think Batwoman also deserves a character-development shout out, even though I feel like she would have been more plausible if she wouldn t be the clear loser on the "Kick Ass-O-Meter". I like the look of the characters, for the most part. The fighting and action didn't really look that good. Some of the animation was a little sloppy, I caught a few mistakes here and there, but nothing too serious though.
I personally feel like if the film had given the story more room, it would be a contender for the likes of Batman and the Phantom. They don't sport the enormous jaws that a lot of the animated superheroes have. Especially the fighting, was just too quick, lacked any real impact. Too many of the heroes are just normal people, with all kinds of gadgets.
This wouldn t be as bad, if the protagonists wouldn t turn to punchline-swinging clichés while fighting, just seconds after they had some actually interesting conversations that drive a plot that is supposed to give them depth.
This luckily applies a bit less to Batwoman and not at all for Robin.
So I guess that must make Talia Al Ghul, one of Batman's deadliest villains a C-List enemy. I guess I should actually review this piece of trash, given the fact I wasted my time watching it but I just wanted to give you a little introduction about my history with DC's animated film universe.
Anyway, it is hard to pick just one thing that makes this film hard to watch. We all know they give Batman a freaking gun just for the stupid shock value but OMGoodness IT IS GETTING OLD!
You could say the film tries to be an action film with story - unfortunately the fusion doesn t quite work.
One reason for this is, that the film favors action over story.
Maybe he marks the point where the writers didn t have time for more plot, since Batwing really misses some dialogs to make his integration into the Batfamily somehow authentic.
On the bright side of characters there is Robin, who gets just little screen time but I think they got really a lot out of it.
The second major flaw for me is that I feel like the writers don t respect the motivations, aims or morals of the protagonists.
