A letdown after the first.

More violence, a poor story, and more make this skippable. The design is beautiful, though.

Too much violence
age 14+

like how the early Batman movies are more comic book like

My son is under 10 and loves scary and action packed movies. He liked that it had two villains and one hero. The penguin bites someone's mouth, which was weird, and catwoman gets shot a couple of times, which was kind of disturbing.

Too much violence
