Verdict on Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts
Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts is an animated adventure for the caped crusader and friends. It follows them dealing with a host of animal attacks on the city as an unusual group starts working together. Batman must lead the group in defending the city and dealing with The Penguin.
This does feel like a safe animated movie that could easily have just been a 3- or 4-part series in an animated series. The movie doesn’t feel like a big threat, just like another one of the adventures about coming together as a team. It entertains for a solid hour but feels more like an average outing for the crew.
Final Thoughts – Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts is a basic entertaining animated Batman tale.
