Lots of violence and cursing

This isn't your typical batman cartoon. This makes reference to a lot of iffy things. Language is a big concern, it has more violence and language than most newer cartoons and there is sex referenced a couple times.

Okay but was not really accurate

F*** is used a couple of times along with Damn, Hell etc. It has a bit a violence but what can you expect it is a Batman movie Batman and Catwoman are in a relationship Ivy kisses Selina also Ivy where's a revealing outfit that you she her butt and boobs clearly through.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (6 ):

Batman and Catwoman in a budding romance, a brand new (to film) supervillain whose identity may or may not be revealed, and start-to-finish hyper cartoon violence should satisfy most loyal fans. Batman: Hush is based on a much beloved comic book series, and devotees have been waiting since 2002 for the story to be brought to film. Changes have been made, not extensive, but a few significant ones. Some Batman buffs may be disappointed, but it's been speculated that the creators of this film were hoping to excite and surprise all Batman fans, including those who'd already read the "book."

On its own, the film works for the most part. A few of the vocal performances are aimed at understated but read as flat instead. And a 12-issue comic book series offers more opportunity for the characters to develop and emerge, a luxury that an 81-minute movie doesn't have, so the movie feels crammed with an over-supply of DC villains. Best for more mature audiences.
