Clans of Intrigue 2
6 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

Wow.. I was just writing a review and was kinda upset because when I searched for Legend of the Bat I was directed to the Clans of Intrigue page. The Clans of Intrigue page is named "Legend of the Bat" and also has the Legend of the Bat video cover pictured there, but not here???

I'm glad I found this here before I finished my gripe and review on the Clans page. Legend of the Bat aka "Clans of intrigue 2" (which is not listed here either) aka Bat Island Adventure (which is misspelled here) is a sequel to Clans of Intrigue.

Well.. there's not much I can say here that hasn't already been said by the other reviewers. It's full of twists and turns that keep you guessing just like Clans. Some like it better than Clans and others like it less. My reaction to either is equal. Both good movies.

I just hope that IMDb fixes the error and puts the Legend of the Bat video cover here (where it belongs) and returns Clans of Intrigue back to its original again to avoid the confusion.
