Did You Know?


In a scene in the Batcave, the heroes are discussing the Animilitia and trading nicknames for them. Flash refers to the criminals as the "Animaniacs" which is a reference to the Warner Bros. cartoon of the same name. See more »


Silverback calls the robot animals, "androids". That is a specific term for robots shaped like men. Considering he is defined by his intellect, Silverback ought to have known this. See more »

An animated movie of mostly dormant instincts...
17 January 2019 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Right, well I can't really claim to be much of a fan of the superhero genre in any of its many variations. But I do watch the movies, solely for the purpose of being entertained by watching a movie. However, I do not take the stories or characters to heart, as it is merely fleeting entertainment.

I got the chance to sit down and watch the 2015 "Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts" animated movie with my 8 year old son. It turned out that he enjoyed watching it, as he found the villains to be entertaining - not that he cared much for the hero characters. I, on the other hand, wasn't overly thrilled by anything found in the entire animated movie.

The story was adequate, taking into consideration what it actually is - an animated "Batman" movie. The plot was predictable and there weren't any plot twists along the way, which made it all a very monotone ride along rails with no curves or ups and downs.

The characters in the movie were bland, in my opinion, and there weren't actually much of any character development. It was essentially just the heroes running around bringing the fight to the villains. Oh gee, like in every single other animated superhero movie before and after this one. So not much of anything new or innovative here.

As for the animation, well I will say that it was actually the animated movie's most strong side. It was actually nice enough to look at.

Not a particularly outstanding animated movie here. But if you are a fan of "Batman" or the superhero genre in general - or DC comics - then you might actually get a kick out of "Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts".
