WTF 9.7? How much money did they give you to rate such a horrible movie a 9!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The art is worth praising, but everything else drops the movie below a 2.2 at best. The writing is predictable, dumb, cliche, unoriginal, has voltron in it.(Not jk about the voltron thing)
This is the biggest piece of crap I have ever seen!!! This’s for 7-10 years old kids who can watch the most ridiculous & incoherent movie with the worst dialogue!!! 2 out of 10 and am being generous...
DC please focus on animation and comic books alone and you have no match !
If DC would spend all the money on animated films and series wouldn't that be the best thing ever? I mean that's literally bringing life to drawings and I prefer that to live-action movies.
CD animations are awesome (especially when they focus on Bats) and I need more of them in my life... Yeah, yea you heard right - I'm a Batman fanboy and I'm proud of it.
The movie is great and all but the concept is still utterly ridiculous. Like the visuals and fight scenes were amazing to watch and the smoothness of it all was breathtaking but every so often I had to realize, that this is batman as a ninja. Batman as a ninja. Again Batman as a /\/ / /\/ _/ /-\. The story and overall design was from japan influence so it's understandable and cool to see one of America's most iconic heroes brought to another light however, the reasoning behind how batman got into japan was utterly bizarre and seemed kind of rushed just to get to see batman in a different costume inspired by ancient japan. I don't get why people say it's the worst thing dc has created though. I'm a marvel fan by heart but goddamn this was way better than the movies they've been pumping out (at least visually) and the fast paced fight scenes were great too. However, It does belong as a direct to D.V.D. because judging by the comments I don't think the majority of DC fans (or comic fans) for that matter would've spent money to see a movie with such a concept like Batman as a ninja. Hell, they're still pissed about the money they wasted on Batman v Superman.
This film failed in so many levels!! Disappointed and ashamed that this movie is beloved by many Batman fans smh!!! I give this movie a D- and a 4/10 for only the beautiful artworks only. Other than that, are completely trash!! I bet I could have come up with a way better movie than what I just saw!!!!😡😡😡😡 men why did it fail so badly!!!!
Well I'm just about finished with and um... yea... it's... interesting thats for sure
4/10 for me.
Great animation and action scenes
Too ambitious for it's own good
Corny dialogue on the English dub
WAYYYYY too over the top for my liking
And it didn't really feel like a Batman story as much as it did a random anime with Batman just plugged in there.
Overall really disappointed, but hey it is what it is.
Lmao, I love anime, I also love Batman. Having said that, this movie is terrible! The story line is all over the place, the fight scenes make no sense. Hell, there's even a Power Ranger robot war out of no where. This is a 3/10 movie all day!
9.7 is too high. This guy haven’t seen the animation of Batman: Gotham Night. 10 for the animation, 9 for the action and 5 for the story. I felt like I was watching Votron or Transformers. Lots of exaggeration scenes. I give it a 7. It is a good movie. But this isn’t no Mask of the Phastasm or the Dark Knight returns.
So just watched this film based on stellar reviews. However this film is wildly over rated! Sounds like it's a Ninja scroll with batman but it's more like a cringey power rangers episode with some ridiculous sequences. Would recommend researching before buying.
ok, lets be real right now. This movie right here is a f***ng disgrace!!! IGN are you freaking kidding me?! 9.7 review?! Who was responsible for that review? I mean for real are you just fooling us all? It seems like Michael Bay rushed in to destroy everything I was excited about!
ok. so this movie was awesome and all but two major problems: 1 joker's voice. it just felt off to me. 2 batman isn't his gadgets. oh sure, he is very efective with his gadgets but he is a force to be reckoned with even without them. why did he have to learn the ways of the ninja? he literally learned the ways of the ninja from the ultimate ninja (Ra's) before even becoming batman! but yeah, still an awesome movie
This didn’t need to be a Batman movie at all. The explanation of how they all got there is weak af. Battle castles??? Really? Secret clan of the bat? That’s convenient. Alfred got there in time with the bat mobile... animation was incredible but the story was total garbage. I thought Gotham by gaslight was 100x better.
I just found this review on rotten tomatoes and was compelled to come here in complete shock and scream that this is one of the most insane reviews I've ever seen . Not just because the movie is complete trash , it is , but because you almost gave a film this bad a perfect review putting this movie in the same class as classics like 2001 , The Godfather , jaws , psycho , the wizard of oz or citizen Kane . I feel it necessary to tell you that as a reviewer it is good to have a base bottom ,top and middle to messure movies against . Say jaws is the top (a 10) and jaws 2 is above average (a 6), making jaws 3D below average (a 4) and jaws 4 a straight up piece of crap (a 1) . Do you get it ? So , when you rate a beautiful constructed movie that went on to win the academy award for best animated film , coco , a 9 and then this terribly rushed thing a 9.7 , you end up looking like a crazy person . I hope I could help with the future of your reviewing career .
Watched the movie with great anticipation because of this review. I watched, then the giant robots showed up, then i sighed, but then it became progressively worse and worse. The ending was just waaaaaay too much
I would like to know where 9.7 came from. The movie was garbage. There was no plot and no story. It was a well animated mess. Just because you wanted it to be good doesn't mean you should skew the review...
I just watched Batman Ninja & the opening sequence had me in awe, the artwork in this film is terrific! Like a comic book in motion & videogame hybrid. The writing though is very anime'. The story is nonsensical, mixing genres. but the movie is an action fest! A bit like an animated Sucker Punch.
The final bats v 🃏 battle was a serious Japanese animated moment. Sadly the rest felt under done and even Power Ranger like. There should have been more 1v1 fights, as it was there this movie shines.
Rent it, don't buy it!
I do not believe this deserves a 9m7 rating, having just watched it. I felt that certain scenes were too over the top and wildly uncharacteristic and just in general, many of the dialogues, actions or choices made were quite uncharacteristic. The voice acting was pretty good and the animation was superb but the pacing could do with some work. It's great that DC tried to do something different with all the feudal Japan theme but at some point I think it got too caught up in itself and went a little crazy on the whole samurai/ninja idea. Sometimes it felt like the Batman here was a completely separate Batman from the actual time he comes from (the present). Those are just some of my thoughts on it. It may not agree with your thoughts or opinions but I do still think it was a fun watch, just maybe not as good as a 9.7.
I saw the score.. and had to imdb and metacritic it to confirm "the hype".. Was very surprised to see IGN rate it so much higher than anyobdy else. Still gonna give it a watch soon, does look interesting.
to the .3 haters...This is not some 100 million dollar budget mega movie, nor is it some Oscar nominated intense drama, it is THE BEST Saturday morning cartoon batman anime movie you would have LOVED as a kid, just marveling at the screen while you're sitting on the floor stuffing your face with snacks!...honestly if you down right hated this movie, your inner child might have died long ago...no offense.
Just watched this and wow, it is so bad. Terribly bad. The animation is good, no discredit to them, but everything else (story, plot, robots for christ sake) is garbage. For IGN to score it a 9.7 is beyond ridiculous... maybe they're getting a kickback.
i am at lost for words i was really excited when i heard about this then i saw the ign rating, and finally i got to see it this is the worst DC animation movie ive ever seen like EVER in their 20+ years of making animated movies. its beyond me how IGN gave this a 9.7 its sinful
This movie was amazing. The visual blew my mind. There is a act where is changes art style...a wonder to behold. The final act was just so outrageously over the top I literally cried tears of joy. Just give it a 10 IGN. What's not to like?
