LEGO DC: Batman – Family Matters
Directed by Matt Peters. With Troy Baker, Steve Blum, Zach Callison, Cam Clarke. In LEGO DC: Batman – Family Matters, suspicion is on high after Batman, Batgirl, Robin and other DC superheroes receive mysterious invitations. However, family values must remain strong when Batman and his team encounter the villainous Red Hood, who is obsessed with destroying the Bat-family and all of Gotham City.
How does a LEGO kid’s film deal with the death of Robin? In the comics the character is beaten to death with a crowbar by the Joker, then Batman goes on a murderous revenge spree that’s only stopped by Superman himself!
The movie is less gory about the details and there’s plenty of laughs to be had instead of shocked screams of horror, I found myself actually liking this version of the “Death In The Family” storyline, which was briefly touched on here in the LEGO film. It has more story content from when the Red Hood showed back up and everyone was trying to figure out who he was.
