Batman Unlimited: Mechs vs. Mutants

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 9/10/16

This was a very enjoyable animated movie. It has a lot of humor as well as action. Some of it is seen from the point-of-view of the new Robin, Damian, as he adjusts to life fighting with Batman, trying to keep up, and dealing with Batman's terse personality. Another part of the movie is seen from the point-of-view of Penguin, who's always fun in any incarnation.

As the movie begins, Penguin has been banished to an arctic wildnerness with Mr. Freeze. He has a cute little penguin companion that he talks to as well. The younger kids will no doubt love that part. I wouldn't say it's "too cutsey," though.  Penguin manipulates Mr. Freeze into going back to Gotham to take it over. They bust out some other criminals to help them. I don't want to give away any spoilers!

Most of the plot centers on the fights between Batman and the rest of his team (which includes not only the new Robin, but Darkwing, Flash and Green Arrow) fighting against the team of bad guys. The bad guys have become large mutants, so we find out that Batman and Green Arrow have paid a scientist to make large robot versions of themselves that they can use to fight. Basically, they ride inside the giant superheroes and control them from in there. It's a little bit silly, but it works in the movie. As another reviewer said, it has a "Godzilla" vibe.

I think any Batman fan will enjoy this movie. There were not many extras, just some coming attractions and a couple of episodes of an earlier Batman series.

BURBANK, CA (July 6, 2016) — Batman will need the help from several of his Super Hero pals -- Green Arrow, Nightwing, The Flash and Robin – to take down a crew of Super-Villains on a scale he’s never seen before in Batman Unlimited: Mechs vs. Mutants.

The Dark Knight is back doing what he does best – protecting the citizens of Gotham City – in the third installment of the Batman Unlimited series, Batman Unlimited: Mechs vs. Mutants.  When evil scientist Mr. Freeze activates his latest invention on two of Gotham City’s most formidable criminals – Killer Croc and Bane – things go from bad to worse.  Turning them into super-sized mutant monsters, the Super-Villains start bashing through the streets of Gotham City  with no end in sight.  It’s up to the Caped Crusader and his Super Hero team to save the day by putting the giant robot mechs in their place – but it will be an uphill battle as they face off against enormous foes.

The heroic voice cast features Roger Craig Smith (Batman: Arkham Origins, Assassin’s Creed games) as Batman, Chris Diamantopoulos (Episodes, Silicon Valley) as Green Arrow, Will Friedle (Batman Beyond, Boy Meets World) as Nightwing, Charlie Schlatter (Diagnosis Murder, Kick Buttkowski) as The Flash, and Lucien Dodge (Pokemon, Bleach) as Robin.

Mitchell (World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor) as Clayface and Troy Baker (Batman: Assault on Arkham) as Joker. Phil LaMarr (MAD TV, Futurama) joins the Batman Unlimited series as Dr. Langstrom.
