The best new 52 film so far
6 February 2016 | by secretzfanSee all my reviews

Firstly a disclaimer. I have not read the comics this is based on. I have wanted to pick up Batwoman but I never did. I own one volume of Batwing.

So I am judging this film on it own merits. Not as some comic book pulled right off the page. That being said I do feel this film stays true to what I know of what is in those comics.

I mean I really enjoyed this film. Jay Olivia seems to be having his own plans for this new DC new 52 slew of films I really do like what he is trying to do here. Though I will admit it would of been better if he separated everything with a Batwing movie Batwoman movie Batman: Battle for the Cowl.

It would of been great if these all were kept separate instead of merging them, but I felt the way they merged them all together was good. I didn't feel to overwhelmed by everything and overall I had fun with this film .

I like how it held back too, It wasn't as needfully gory as Batman vs Robin or Justice League: War were. It used blood only when it was appropriate and I liked that a lot.

I do wish there was more story over action, but the action was directed well and had weight to it.

I liked all the characters here too. Damien Wayne seems to be calmer and less bratty. He seems to care about his father more and still love him. Talia even notes this.

I also liked Talia in this movie. I thought she had did a really good job in this movie.

Batwoman was great too. I was surprised they kept her lesbian origins in tact. Especially with the whole marriage thing in place.

Dick Grayson was also handled well in this film and had a lot of nice nods to him being Batman.

Actually I wished we saw more of Dick Grayson being Batman. Which is why it would of been nice if they split these stories a part more, but it is all good in the same.

The worst things this film had was the 3d animation and the villains. Aside from Talia none of them were really that compelling. Which kind of sucks being that some of these villains could have been interesting if they got more time to be fleshed out.

Overall Batman Bad Blood is the best of these new 52 animated films, but it isn't perfect. It does have a few issues here and there that I do wish could have been more fleshed out, but overall still really enjoyable.
