Storyline

Batman Ninja takes a journey across the ages as Gorilla Grodd's time displacement machine transports many of Batman's worst enemies to feudal Japan - along with the Dark Knight and a few of his allies. The villains take over the forms of the feudal lords that rule the divided land, with the Joker taking the lead among the warring factions. As his traditional high-tech weaponry is exhausted almost immediately, Batman must rely on his intellect and his allies - including Catwoman and the extended Bat-family - to restore order to the land, and return to present-day Gotham City. Written by Warner Bros.

Did You Know?

Trivia

Bats are actually seen as symbols of good fortune in China (and therefore feudal Japan/other countries with Chinese influences), due to the similarity in writing/pronunciation between the words "bat" and "luck". See more »

User Reviews

 
Script is just So bad.
24 April 2018 | by wreuvenSee all my reviews

Cliche after Cliche.

None of the characters have any personality including the Batman. Every line from a villain is of the "HAHA now I'll get you All" variety and every line from the Batman is delivered with the same dour monotone as if the Batman's "Darkness" exists only in his deep voice.

The artwork is good. Hard to understand why anyone would invest in million dollar artwork and then combine it with a ten dollar script.
