Ten years ago, Slade Wilson-aka the super-assassin called Deathstroke-made a tragic mistake and his wife and son paid a terrible price. Now, a decade later, Wilson's family is threatened once again by the murderous Jackal and the terrorists of H.IV.E. Can Deathstroke atone for the sins of the past-or will his family pay the ultimate price?
Michael Chiklis, who voices Slade/ Deathstroke previously played Commissioner Barnes in the DC TV Series"Gotham" (2014-2019) and Ben Grimm/The Thing in two Fantastic Four movies. See more »
In the box of possessions Joseph is packing up from his old bedroom is a family photo of himself sitting on Slade's shoulders at a playground, with his mother standing to their left. In the photo, Slade's eye patch is covering the incorrect eye. This is most-likely an example of a flipped-frame, since when the photo was seen earlier, the orientation of the eye patch was correct, and his mother is on their right. See more »
You're in for a Surprise
You may or may not expect a good story with a character like Slade Wilson who is shady at best and mostly shown as a carnal being. But you would be surprised the writers worked out the story of one of the most skilled nemesis of Batman and the Titans into a story of family and complex desires of soldiers who are out of commission.
Written and directed beautifully, this movie joins the legion of DC animated masterpieces. With art looking unfinished and unpolished here there, it provides a good cinematic experience with visceral action sequences and twist and turns in the stories very fabric. The title although is metaphoric but the plot lives upto it.
