About Batman Ninja
Batman Ninja is an anime film that tells the story of Batman, Batman Family, and some of his enemies are transported back in time to feudal Japan.
“Batman Ninja takes a journey across the ages as Gorilla Grodd’s time displacement machine transports many of Batman’s worst enemies to feudal Japan – along with the Dark Knight and a few of his allies. The villains take over the forms of the feudal lords that rule the divided land, with the Joker taking the lead among the warring factions. As his traditional high-tech weaponry is exhausted almost immediately, Batman must rely on his intellect and his allies – including Catwoman and the extended Bat-family – to restore order to the land, and return to present-day Gotham City.”
Batman Ninja is rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and action, and for some suggestive material.
