Another in the long line of pseudo-edgy animation, DC’s Son of Batman (from hereon out SoB), a loose adaptation of Grant Morrison’s Batman and Son, feels like the sort of disjointed mess you get when there’s one too many cook in the kitchen.  Striving for the dark edge of what I guess people expect from a ‘Batman’ movie while still maintaining that Saturday morning toon sheen, the film feels mass produced to appeal to all (give the adults – gore; the kids – a spunky child sidekick.); however in the effort to appease everyone, SoB in fact caters to none.  Hit the jump for the full review.  Who the hell is the crap for anyways?  Within the first ten minutes, about as much animated blood is spilled as that new 300 film.  Machine guns mow down dozens of ninjas, animated blood squibs flowing everywhere.  Ninjas retaliate by slashing enemies across their bellies, »
