Batman Ninja. It’s a pretty snazzy title isn’t it? Conjures up all sorts of images that get the juices flowing.
If you watch Batman Ninja you’ll quickly discover that they thought of the title, and then made the film. It’s gorgeous, and cool, and nonsensical, and basically rudderless. But you can’t help but appreciate it.
Quickly moving things into Feudal Japan, Batman is forced to reconsider his approach to pretty much everything, though it does a damn job good job of showing what he had. That a large chunk of his Rogue Gallery, and most of the Bat Family also go with him is fortunate. But it’s a small part of a story where things of a ‘wtf’ nature happen so regularly that you just shrug your shoulders and roll with it.
Approach this film with as little knowledge as possible and you’ll more than likely be confused but amused. Regardless of the story, it’s a beauty to look at at least.
