At Arkham Asylum, Batman clashes with Gorilla Grodd while trying to destroy Grodd's newest invention: the Quake Engine. Amidst the chaos, the engine activates, and the entire asylum suddenly vanishes into thin air—Batman along with it. Once the dust settles, Batman finds himself standing in the middle of an unfamiliar road. He soon realizes that he is no longer in Gotham City—but instead in Feudal Japan!

The amazement quickly fades as samurai descend upon him, seeking to take his life. Later on, Batman's investigation leads him to discover that the one responsible for the kill order is none other than his archnemesis, the Joker. Following an encounter with Catwoman, he learns that the asylum's criminals had teleported there two years earlier—each ruling over a piece of Japan with Joker being the dominant warlord.

In order to return home, Batman must reactivate the Quake Engine, situated in the remnants of the asylum, now known as Arkham Castle. However, there is one problem: aside from his gadget belt, the arsenal that was once at his fingertips is all but gone. Ninja Batman follows the Dark Knight as he traverses a strange new environment, facing off against familiar foes in a bid to return to Gotham in one piece.

the story is kind of all over the place, makes no sense and out of character.

but it was the most hilarious, fever dream experience I've ever had regarding a batman movie. if you are a big fan of batman and like anime then you will find this movie hilarious. I suggest watching it in Japanese because joker's VA is great.

The art design is fun to watch honestly and aside from Damien's horrid hair cut the character designs are great too.

I found the background design a little lacking at times, giving off a feeling of emptiness.

there were a few out of character moments ...

Story wise this movie is pretty dumb. The characters, who are detectives and fight evil crime lords, hope to win with the power of friendship and feel betrayed when the villains behave like villains. The voices really got into my nerves, it's just too annoying and high pitched for everyone, the joker was specially annoying with his moaning. To me, it seems like whoever make this really loved batman's concept and watched him as a kid, but didin't revisit his source material as an adult and wrote something that an 8 year old would find badass or whatever. Like, reaally, batman who watched his parents ...

Let's be honest. If this didn't have Batman and other DC characters in it, very few people would hesitate to call it a dumpster fire. But unfortunately, the story is confusing nonsense, the action scenes are messy, the low framerate is headache-inducing, and the pacing is just a pathetic failure.

Ninja Batman's plot sounds like a fun time on paper, but this film just skipped the whole storytelling process. To summarize the story better than the film does: Gorilla Grodd created a time machine, and now a dozen iconic DC heroes and villains are transported to feudal Japan. If Batman doesn't stop the Joker, he will ...
