This was an excellent movie. Damian was a cocky badass, and the dynamic between he and Bruce was very well done. I also liked that Ra's was finally portrayed in an uber light, when he deflected mass amounts of gunfire and tooled dozens of ninjas. The only thing I didn't like is how inept Deathstroke came across as.
But all in all, this was one of my favorite movies in the DCAU--right up there with 'Under The Red Hood'. This may also be the most violent animated flick DC's put out.

Yeah it's going to worth the purchase. I think that this may have been one of the best if not the best cartoon movies I have ever watched. I only had two mild complaints about it. No Kevin Conroy, and they seemed to have retconned Deathstroke. He wasn't as imposing as I'd like, but other than that the movie is great.
Let me make sure I understand the question: are you asking if Damian became Robin in this movie? If so, then [SPOILER - highlight to read]: yes, Damian became Robin. He donned the original Robin suit and Bruce referred to him as 'Robin' a number of times.
If that isn't what you're asking then please rephrase the question.
