What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Batman vs. Robin is a 2015 animated feature in which Bruce Wayne/Batman has a difficult time convincing his 10-year-old son Damian/Robin that "justice, not vengeance" is the only true way to fight crime. Parents and grandparents looking for the 1960s campy "Caped Crusaders" who punctuated their fight scenes with "POW!" and "BAM!" should look elsewhere; this is the darker, more conflicted and complex Batman superhero we have come to expect in more recent decades. There are disturbing scenes of children being held prisoner in small cages in an abandoned factory by a villain called the Dollmaker who sews doll masks on children's faces and has them do his bidding. The Dollmaker also wears a sewn-on doll mask and could easily scare younger or sensitive kids. In flashback scenes, young Bruce Wayne is shown watching his parents get shot and killed by a masked gunman in a dark alley, and the villain called Talon is shown as a young boy being physically and verbally abused by his father. Batman is given a strong hallucinogenic drug; his surroundings psychedelically throb and undulate around him. There are fight and battle scenes throughout -- even Alfred the butler gets in on the action by shooting a rifle -- and occasional profanity ("bastard," "sons of bitches") and some sexual innuendo between Bruce Wayne and his girlfriend and between the former Robin and his girlfriend. Though this is an excellent animated feature of the highest quality, the graphic content and mature themes make this best for teens and older.
