Another Batman without Batman
19 January 2016 | by nottheotherleeSee all my reviews

I'm probably just old and nostalgic but I find it very hard to get into Batman movies that hardly have him in them. In isolated moments or when mixed with a healthy dose of the Dark Knight himself I find the supporting characters around him to be palatable ... but when the focus is almost entirely on them my interest wanes.

Unfortunately that's what we have in Bad Blood - a film that focuses (poorly) on support characters at the expense of pretty much everything that has made Batman so interesting over the years. What you actually get of Batman are a couple of action scenes and that is pretty much it. No grim demeanour. No sharp, analytical detective skills. Batman is essentially window dressing for a boring, underwhelming script. There is no tension and little of interest save for the action sequences which aren't poor but also not entirely memorable.

I own every animated Batman series and film ever released ... and while I still hold Batman The Animated Series to be the pinnacle of the franchise I still enjoyed Batman Beyond, Beware the Batman and even The Batman. I am a Batman fiend. I love Batman but this just wasn't Batman and so I cannot like this. This was poorly written dialogue between characters that nobody primarily watches Batman for.

If you're like me you will watch this because Batman. You will also be sorely disappointed.
