Number of Times Seen – 1 (6 Mar 2017)
Brief Synopsis – When Damien is approached to be a part of a secret society known as The OWLS, Batman and Nightwing must try and find a way to stop him.
My Take on it – I’ve been watching the film in the DC/WB animated series for nearly a year now and it’s been quite a while since I saw one that was done so well.
This film was thrilling from start to finish and I loved the whole idea of the Court of Owls because it added so much more mystery to it all.
They do a wonderful job of constructing the world for this to happen in that doesn’t just rely on action, but that also deals with morals and values.
This helps define even better the difference between Batman and other vigilantes and we get a clear picture of right and wrong within the world of crime.
Loved the Talon as the mysterious man who tries to convince Damien of the rights and wrongs of a life filled with crime.
He is so well written and I’m glad to see that it’s possible to create even more villains for our favorite superheroes that are not just cookie-cutter stereotypes.
I can’t wait to see what else they have in store for us in the future.
The action scenes here are amazing to watch because they they are done in such a thrilling way and it was great seeing Alfred partake a bit too.
This was such a great film to watch and I’m glad I finally saw it.
Bottom Line – Such a thrilling a fun adventure to watch unfold. Loved how they were able to construct a view of our world and make this superhero story into one that deals more with values and morality than many others have even thought of doing. The Talon is a great foil for both Damien and Batman and it shows that there are still well written bad guys waiting for us to explore onscreen even more. The action scenes are extremely thrilling and this is one of my favorite films from DC/WB. Highly Recommended!
