Trivia

In the film Dick Grayson appeared as Nightwing, while in the comics Tim Drake who was Robin at the time appeared instead. In addition, to help keeps things simple for the DC Universe animated films, the existence of Jason Todd and Tim Drake as the previous Robins after Dick Grayson's retirement was removed entirely and instead was changed to Damian being the only person who would replace Dick Grayson as Robin.

Not as bad as the reviews make out ... not as good as DC ...
25 October 2014 | by A_Different_DrummerSee 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, especially after Dark Knight, I guess that REALLY WOULD BE A FANTASY.
