“For any complaining this film isnu0026#39;t as mature or tightly woven in plot as the likes of u0026#39;Under the Red Hoodu0026#39; or u0026#39;The Killing Jokeu0026#39;, I think theyu0026#39;re misunderstanding the whole point of the Batman Unlimited line. This is meant for younger kids and I feel it does a great job at that without being obnoxious. Iu0026#39;m much older than this demographic, but I still found it enjoyable and entertaining.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere wasnu0026#39;t anything that upset me about this movie and it legitimately entertained me. And if a movie, an entertainment medium, does that; it certainly didnu0026#39;t fail. Not everything needs to be dripping with characterization and plot or be dark and gritty when it comes to Batman. Sometimes you just want to have fun with your favorite characters and the Dark Knight along with the other DC heroes is no exception. The animation looks great and the fights are very mobile, so thereu0026#39;s always something to look at; and thereu0026#39;s some nice character moments still there. I found this Damien Wayne a lot more enjoyable than even the comics version.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAs a kaiju and mecha genre fan, I got a big kick out of this film. If you saw and liked Pacific Rim, youu0026#39;ll think itu0026#39;s a hoot as the film is constantly giving you shout-outs. It doesnu0026#39;t get to the rip-off territory, but more like an honestly happy homage with the visuals and soundtrack.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWe got a movie with Green Arrow and Batman slugging it out with a Godzilla sized Killer Croc and Hulked-Out and Hulked-Up Bane while bass guitars are strum in the background. If that doesnu0026#39;t bring out your typical sci-fi/comic geeku0026#39;s inner child, I donu0026#39;t know what will.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI expected this film to be tacky, very toy pandering, immature, and just plain bad; and had high hopes for u0026#39;The Killing Jokeu0026#39;. As of the closing of 2016, that opinion has entirely reversed. Mechs vs. Mutants is a happily fun, entertaining romp with some nice homages; knowing exactly what it is and excelling at it. Put it on for the tots and even if youu0026#39;re older, I can see all but the most hardlined dark Batman and DC fans finding something to enjoy.”
