Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons Review
When Deathstroke first appeared in the Teen Titans in the 80’s he was one of the best characters around. He was an incredibly skilled human – not unlike Batman in his way.
Why did that need to change for this film? In this iteration Slade has taken a super soldier formula (Captain America) that has given him incredible healing powers (Wolverine). At one point – testing his abilities – he punches a punchbag off its chain (Steve Rogers).
His wife ends up with white highlights in her hair (Rogue) dressed in a black catsuit (Black Widow). The story also was bang average – this may as well have been a PG – the violence seemed tagged on to get a 15 certificate – not a mature story line – childish and simplistic – just the odd throat stab here and there.
Animation did not set the world on fire either. How do you ruin a film about Slade Wilson? Tough ask but these guys managed it – kudos!
