Trivia

Writer Jeremy Adams cites the 1970s Batman comics, specifically those written by Denny O'Neil, as an influence on the tale: "The 1970s were a unique time. You have the kung fu craze, James Bond movies and Satanic cult movies. So there's like this great cross-section and they all lived in the same time in the 1970s and it was a great place to put this. Not to mention, it's one of Batman's seminal ages." See more »

Awesome Martial Arts but missing the heart
12 January 2021 | by denuwan-27382See all my reviews

Batman: Soul of the Dragon is direct by Sam Liu and written by Jeremy Adams. Batman, Bronze Tiger, Lady Shiva, and Richard Dragon join forces when they come to realize that they share a common acquaintance. The Martial Arts Master that trained them has been missing for a number of years and under mysterious circumstances. When a cursed relic resurfaces, the mystery of their dead master re-opens and Batman and his former classmates must face-off in the ultimate test of their Martial Arts skills to gain control of this dangerous relic. This movie set in the 70s and I love Asian Martial Arts. This movie is more focused on Bruce Wayne than Batman. This feels like a mix of James Bond and Bruce lee's movie. There are a lot of action-packed scenes but a lack of character development and feelings, which is one of the main negative points. Also, the story is very predictable and flat. When comes to Asian movies or dramas they heavily focused on feelings and this movie lacks feelings, live adaptation of Mulan also had the same problem. I do not strongly recommend this movie. If you are a fan of batman and animation it's ok.
