Nice animated batman movie
8 July 2017 | by maurodcSee all my reviews

Probably "Son of Batman" isn't the best nor the most memorable animated flick of Batman, but that doesn't mean that it isn't important, you know? Because it's a story definitely worth to make a film adaptation, I mean...when I first knew about the existence of this movie, I tough to myself: "Wait! Batman has a son? WTF??? I have to check this out!"

I haven't read the graphic novel this movie is based on (Batman and Son), but something tells me that almost all the hate towards this film is because it's not truly faithful to it. But, as I haven't read it, it's something irrelevant for me.

But this doesn't mean that the movie has no fails. For example, a huge part of the movie is full of bloody battles, the cold attitude that Talia has even tough her father Ra's had just died (Batman fans will agree with me about the fact that Talia is truly faithful to her father and that if something happens to him, she wouldn't just throw it away).

In spite of its fails, it is a highly underrated and worth to watch, because it portrays in a very decent way the paternal side of Batman that we have never seen before.
