A direct-to-video animated superhero film with a much darker mood than the DC Universe's other recent pictures, "Batman vs. Robin" centers around Bruce Wayne's son Damian Wayne, who has taken on the mantle of Robin to fight crime in Gotham City alongside his famous father. Damian confronts Batman's prohibition against killing, contending that some hardcore criminals need to meet a permanent end. His hardline stance puts him at odds with Batman, Alfred, and the former Robin, Dick Grayson, as he drifts apart from his crime-fighting family. When Damian finds the mysterious Court of Owls secret society might be more in line with his darker nature, he goes toe to toe with his father to settle their dispute once and for all.
