Batman: Mystery Of The Batwoman (2003) Film Review

Leave a comment



The classic Batman Animated Series had many movies this it the latter and last before Batman Beyond the title is offering a plot with a mystery new super-heroine that prowls the streets of Gotham, however what is her motive?


The plot is very much a twisting an turning one in which the main character is as much a mystery and secretive as the the Batman himself with many differing story arcs, red herrings and various subplots thrown into the mix this a tight well crafted story that lends to a more mature audience.

The style of animation is worth a mention which gives this movie a “classic” noir feel lending many of its iconic visuals to the the original animated series in the early nineties with the characters themselves being more “streamline” this is in all a very impressive outing.

I viewed this movie in HD (1080p 24fps)  on Warner Bros. Blu-ray  The picture was pristine, sharp and clear the animation is vibrant, detailed and what really pings out is the noirish hues that dominate the screen.


This is a highly atmospheric, clever, detailed and basically a fun movie to watch and with the complexity of the plot, interesting characteristics and interesting animation this is worth a peek under the cowl. Highly Recommended

Paul was branded as a “naughty & difficult child” at school. He was classically autistic and non-verbal due to speech articulation difficulties. He had complex sensory issues and appeared both deaf and blind. He gained functional speech around the age of 7 or 8 years old. He went through the mainstream school system with no additional help or recognition of his autism. Consequently, he did not achieve his academic or his social potential and had very low self-esteem. At age 11, Paul was referred to the children’s mental health service with childhood depression where he was regarded as “developmentally underage” and having speech problems. As an adult, Paul had a string of unsuccessful jobs, and his mental health suffered. He developed both Borderline and Schizotypal Personality Disorders in early 2007. He was referred to mental health services and misdiagnosed with “Asperger traits with a complex personality”, which did not satisfy Paul or his family. A local autism organisation put Paul in touch with an experienced psychiatrist, who diagnosed him with Autism at 24 years old. In 2012 Paul was also diagnosed with Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome by an Irlen Consultant who confirmed that he also had face, object and meaning blindness – conditions which Paul describes eloquently in his speeches and training sessions. He also has dyslexia, dyscalculia and also a dissociative disorder. Having started working as an local autism organisation as a public speaker in 2010, Paul joined their mission to promote autism awareness. His hope is that others will not have to suffer as he did. Now also a core member of our Training Team, Paul continues to enhance true understanding of autism at every opportunity. Paul has released and published 5 books on the subject of autism published by Chipmunka publishing and has contributed to other books too. Having overcome many challenges to achieve the success that he now enjoys, Paul’s message is that Autism is a complex mix of ability and disability. He firmly believes that every Autistic person should have the opportunity to reach their potential and be regarded as a valued member of society. Apart from autism related blogs Paul also write about movies, fashion, art and anything that is of interest. As of August 2015 Paul now works as a freelance speaker, training and consultant in and around the Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire area. If you are interested please contact him via email at
