Trivia

The moment Thoth initially appears as a young pretty woman, as she arises from the Lazarus Pit and seduces Ra's, only to reveal her true self as an aged hag after she embraces him, is similar to a scene in The Shining (1980) where Jack Torrance (portrayed by Jack Nicholson, who coincidentally played the Joker in Tim Burton's Batman (1989) movie) investigates the bathroom of Room 237.

Quotes

Talia: Oh, beloved, why has he forsaken me? Does he think I've betrayed him?
Bruce Wayne: I can't pretend to know what Ra's thinks, Talia. The only thing he and I have ever agreed upon is our feelings towards you.

At it again, in grand fashion.
23 January 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

Like clockwork, Ra's al Ghul is on another quest for power, as usual dragging Batman away from Gotham. None of this is a criticism, it's just what the guy does. But 'Avatar' adds a distinctly "Raiders of the Lost Ark" flavor, not just with the overseas flying graphics but also the archaeological expedition.

It's a solid episode, once again teasing the forbidden romance between Bruce and Thalia; and David Warner really punches up the malice in his voice. Honestly, Ra's wouldn't be half as fascinating with lesser casting. And there's some beautiful animation here, if inconsistent. All in all not a bad return of one of Batman's otherworldly villains.

7/10
