This movie is the perfect example of a beautiful 💩...
Yes, the animation was outstanding, but the movie itself... absolutely absurd...
They could have taken this story to unprecedented heights, but instead they produced an acid trip of a film that doesn’t even deserve a rewatch.
It seems like DC animated films have gone the way of its live action movies...
I’d divide that 9.7 by 3
9.7 -_- Really? -_- IGN just lost major credibility with this one. Is the animation style amazing? Yes, and that's about it. This movie is a 4 at best just for that alone this Batman's dialogue sounds like Adam West and Kevin Conroy had a bizarro love child. "You're all out of those fans so what are you going to do now, Joker" -_- SEARIOUSLY?! and you guys give this a 9.7, but The Death Of Superman gets a 5.9? Oooh we get it now, not enough Batman for you to worship. Ok now it makes sense. It's not like TDOS is great either, but at least it's on the coherent side. 9.7? GTFOH! Can't take what you guys say seriously anymore.
Half of the people in the comments that think highly of that movie they haven't seen it ,it seems to me that even the reviewer didn't watch the movie .Did he just reviwed the trailers or something ? that movie was sooooooo bad i cannot fathom how you scored it with a 9.7
I wish I had looked at all the comments right here because it would have had saved me my money and time in watching this. Beautiful art work but that's all it has going for it . 9.7 ???????? There is no way Glad I am not the only one I thought I was loosing mind trying to like it .
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.
