After we have been contacted by one individual and looked at Benya's threats, the initial feeling was of utter disgust, to the point that one has an urge to vomit, so sick and perverted the whole thing seemed to us at the time. The feeling was: why should we even bother with all these schemes and look at all this complicated mess and manipulations while people are simply asleep? Why should we even argue about the authors? We either carry them or we don't. We have never argued with any author, at least about the issues of publication. This, by itself, looks like something on the par with insane.
The film received generally mixed to positive reviews. IGN gave the film a rating of out of 10, saying " Son of Batman finds the humor amidst the more adult-oriented action elements in this latest DC animated adventure".  On Rotten Tomatoes the film has a rating of 75% based on 8 votes.  Common Sense Media gave the film a 4 star rating out of 5, stating "Violent and noirish Batman is engaging but cynical".  Conversely, Brian Lowry of Variety stated "at times this feels like a sitcom premise — a chop-socky "Full House", or maybe, “Full Cave”".  Tommy Cook for also gave the film a negative review, commenting "Striving for the dark edge of what I guess people expect from a Batman movie while still maintaining that Saturday morning toon sheen, the film feels mass produced to appeal to all (give the adults – gore; the kids – a spunky child sidekick.); however in the effort to appease everyone, SoB in fact caters to none".
