What began with promise slowly morphed into an exposition-heavy glob of boredom.
'Batman: The Doom That Came to Gotham' is an Elseworlds tale that's a mixture of Lovecraftian horror, 1930s aesthetics, and a good heaping of uninteresting villains.
The mystery element was extremely intriguing since the Caped Crusader is a detective after all but once the main villain is revealed...it just becomes another boring retelling of a Batman storyline we've seen a hundred times over already. I think these villains need to be put on ice for a very long time.
The fact that this film deals with dark magic, hellish creatures of unfathomable origin, and godlike beings...why is it so damn boring?
