“The logic/science-driven Batman must battle Lovecraftian supernatural forces threatening the sheer existence of Gotham, along the way being aided and confronted by reimagined versions of his well-known allies and enemies, including Green Arrow, Ra’s al Ghul, Mr Freeze, Killer Croc, Two-Face, James Gordon and Bruce’s beloved wards. Prepare for a mystical, often terrifying Batman adventure unlike any other.”
Reviews [may contain spoilers]:
“The story here is decent and there was potential to explore some genuinely great stuff, especially with Batman’s character, but this film, unfortunately, glosses over a lot of this. Also, there’s a bunch of new faces in this story that don’t get explored too greatly, either […] These movies almost always look absolutely phenomenal and this film is no exception.” C- Caillou Pettis Movie Reviews
” …as the movie moves forward, we see that the Wayne legacy is tainted. On the other hand, Kai Li Cain was someone Bruce trusted wholeheartedly as his protégé, and he managed to instill his belief in a better future in her. In this movie canon, Bruce Wayne might be no more, but the continuation of his legacy carries on through Kai Li Cain.” Film Fugitives
” …a collection of admittedly well-staged action set pieces and a final act that goes down a demonic rabbit hole and delivers a truly unique version of “I am Batman”. This is when the film is at its best and also when it finally tells us what’s going on. The backstory may have some fans with less tolerance for occult storylines rolling their eyes but I found it amusing.” 3 out of 5 stars, Voices from the Balcony
