Not as bad as the reviews make out ... not as good as DC ...
25 October 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

... could have done.

The execution, the voice acting is indeed below par in places. This is true.

But I confess the story got to me. Usually any production that starts with the words "SON OF" is doomed. Literally.

But the story hooked me so I tolerated the subpar production values and actually had a fairly good time.

More than once I even wondered if somewhere out there was a producer who would find the cash to do this live action but given the audience expectations for a live action BATMAN, I guess that REALLY WOULD BE A FANTASY.
