The Dark Knight is back doing what he does best - protecting the citizens of Gotham City - in the third installment of the Batman Unlimited series, Batman Unlimited: Mechs vs. Mutants. When... See full summary »
Lex Luthor is frozen during a battle with the Justice League. He thaws out in the 31st century, discovers Time Trapper and prevents Superman's arrival to Earth as a baby. Future teen heroes Karate Kid and Dawnstar must stop him.
Embittered by Superman's heroic successes and soaring popularity, Lex Luthor forms a dangerous alliance with the powerful computer/villain Brainiac. Using advanced weaponry and a special strain of Kryptonite harvested from the far reaches of outer space, Luthor specifically redesigns Brainiac to defeat the Man of Steel.
In an alternate universe, very different versions of DC's Trinity (Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman), who operate outside of the law, are framed for murders of prominent scientist and the government decides to take them out.

Presenting star-studded cast, but ultimately just the usual straightforward affair.
Those who have watched animation series or played video games recently would be familiar to the voices in Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem. These are veteran actors who do the characters justice and the movie has the advantage of bringing them together for one spectacle. However, the plot is bland and lacking intensity of other DC animations.
Joker assembles his group of misfits to take over Gotham, while Batman is being helped by other vigilantes to stop the villainous act. It doesn't attempt to deliver thrill or alternate personalities like the previous animations and it definitely opts for a lighter tone. The mild vibe is clearly geared for younger audience with bits of humor as well as less visceral action.
The dubbing is definitely in high quality. Batman and Joker resemble their counterpart on the games, it might be slightly jarring to hear them in more vanilla fashion. Each of the superheroes, and also villains, is presented with their typical gimmicks, it's a nice showing for the troupe but it doesn't develop their characters much.
Animation is passable, it doesn't have the pace or well-choreographed fighting like Assault on Arkham. It does get the job done and some of the more futuristic details are appreciated. The action scenes consist of mostly one on one fight between the opposing forces, it's done pretty well albeit might be repetitive later on.
Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem is an average animation boosted by its great production on voice acting. It does entertain, but for fans wanting heavier intrinsic or presentation it may be a bit underwhelming.
