Blu-ray Review: ‘Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Is A Fun Animated DC Movie

Batman and The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles team up in the latest DC Comics animated movie adventure. The Turtles arrive in town looking to stop Shredder from breaking into Wayne Industries. Barbara Gordon has seen the Turtles and alerts Batman. The Turtles stop Penguin from committing a crime and come face to face with Batman, who they think is his enemy.

The Turtles end up finding the batcave and tussle with Robin before Batman arrives and they figure out they’re on the same side. Shredder is working with Ra’s Al Ghul and the League of Assassins and with Joker. They want to infect Gotham with a mutagen. It’s up to Batman, Robin, Batgirl and the Turtles to stop this before it’s too late. It leads to a mammoth showdown between the good guys and the bad guys. We also get cameos from the likes of Poison Ivy, Two-Face and many more. Make sure to star for the post credit scene.

Another fun DC animation story. The Turles have some great LOL moments and with Batman so serious it plays off for a fun time. Even Batgirl and Robin seemed enamored with the Turtles. The animation is once again top notch. The voice cast is perfectly cast (see below).

The Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles all-star cast is led by Troy Baker (Batman: Arkham Origins, The Last of Us) as the voice of both Batman and the Joker – making Baker the first actor to ever play both roles in the same film. Opposite Baker are the Ninja Turtles themselves – Emmy Award/Golden Globe Award/SAG Award winner Darren Criss (American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace, Glee) as Raphael, Kyle Mooney (Saturday Night Live) as Michelangelo, Baron Vaughn (Grace and Frankie) as Donatello, and Eric Bauza (Looney Tunes Cartoons, The Woody Woodpecker Show) as Leonardo.

Other key members of the voice cast include Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) as Batgirl, John DiMaggio (Adventure Time, Futurama) as Mr. Freeze, Tara Strong (Batman: The Animated Series, Teen Titans, Teen Titans Go!) as Harley Quinn & Poison Ivy, Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Penguin, Carlos Alazraqui (Reno 911!) as Bane, Cas Anvar (The Expanse) as Ra’s al Ghul, Keith Ferguson (Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends) as Baxter Stockman & Two-Face, Brian George (Seinfeld) as Alfred, Ben Giroux (Hart of Dixie) as Robin, Andrew Kishino (The Lion Guard) as Shredder, and Jim Meskimen (Parks and Recreation) as Commissioner Gordon & Scarecrow.
