Holy crap-fest Batman! Those brilliant film geniuses behind Batman: Defenders of the Night have a sequel to the origin story of ghetto Batman and Robin called Batman and Robin: Dark Betrayals. If you thought the last film was the most brilliant piece of cinematic work you have ever seen, feast your eyes on this!

When we last saw our heroes in Batman: Defenders of the night, a new partnership was formed, and Gotham appeared to be safe. However, things took a deadly turn when Robin is missing for weeks before being accused of horrible crimes. Batman refuses to believe the story, and vows to prove Robin’s innocence. But will it be too late? Is there more to the story than meets the eye?


I love the performance of the actor playing Jim Gordon – wow! And Robin: Male Gigolo – pure genius!

  1. Bruce Otter on

    Like many sequels, Batman and Robin: Dark Betrayals is longer, with bigger set pieces, better effects and moodier lighting, than the film that spawned it, Batman: Defenders of the Night. B&R:DB is in many ways superior than B:DotN, but the story seemed less ambitious than the original, and a lot of that giddy energy of B:DotN is missing from this sophomore effort. I loved this movie, though and here are some high points for me:

    First of all Jim Gordon, as played by the Son of Manos, the Hands of Fate is truly inspired casting. My only complaint is that he didn’t get more screen time.

    I loved the suspense built up in the chase with Bats always a step behind Robin. I was literally on the edge of my seat right up until the reveal of the imposter.

    “This house looks like it’s been broken into.” and “Those dogs are angry!”
    Wow, those truly are keen detection skills by White Trash Batman.

    Imposter Robin saying, “I dunno,” as if he’d been asked the question from across the room instead of at the end of the fist of the Batman. That’s a cold blooded criminal right there.

    I’m gonna make those criminal scums pay for what they did to you,” because you know the plural of criminal scum is ‘criminal scums’.

    How many dogs were in that house anway? And why was imposter Robin stealing dogs in the first place? Was the real Robin kept up on that roof for the whole two weeks? Is there some connection between T-Shirt Riddler and these new goons? Why did the goons think Batman was out of the way? Too many questions to be answered in one film. Can you say, ‘Trilogy’?

    This film improves on it’s predecessor with vastly improved sound, and better fight choreography. With a tighter script and much improved perfomances Batman and Robin: Dark Betrayals gets 4 stars out a possible 5 stars.
