Batman: Soul Of The Dragon (2021) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
It’s insane how good the animated batman are (and for that matter the DC animated films in general), especially when you consider just how much of a mess the live action DC universe has become and how they continue to misuse the character of the Dark Knight (Zack Snider please step forward). Batman: Soul Of The Dragon continues the trend delivering another super fun film, set in a Gotham more kin to the 70’s grindhouse & blaxploitation features with a funky soundtrack, wingtip shoes and ninjas.  Yup this is Batman reimagined as a 70’s martial arts film and, more the most part, it plays brilliantly.  The voice cast helps – Mark Dacascos Michael Jai White and James Hong to mention just three add some much loved genre mainstays to the proceedings and the film features some of the best action in any Batman film alongside a great sound track and a real love for its genre… this for sure will be the best Batman film you will see in 2021.

Best Bit: Team up!
