One of the best Batman movies

on 12/12/2012

The voice acting is good. The actor playing the Joker is the best Joker voice yet. I have no idea how Andrea Romano is able to cast these DC animated movies so well and keep picking the right voices. Not a false note among any of the casting choices. The characters here ring true to form. I think they really got this one right. The Marvel animated producers and creators are put to shame again.

Editors Note
Note A diabolical villain who seems to know Batman's every move sets out to clean up the streets of Gotham for good and destroy the caped crime-fighter in the process. Every night, Batman protects the citizens of Gotham from the shadows. But lately another vigilante has been prowling the streets, and his merciless methods are more frightening than reassuring. Now, as the Red Hood commences to exterminating the scum of the city with extreme prejudice, the Joker resurfaces to taunt his old nemesis by digging up some skeletons that were best left buried.

Review If you took Batman: The Animated Series and mixed it up with The Dark Knight, you'd have Batman: Under the Red Hood. It takes all the great animated action of Bruce Timm's series (he produced this) and combines it with the violence, drama, and characterization of the cinematic blockbuster. The end result is a film that will please older fans of Batman as well as fans of the comic...Take note of the PG-13 rating. This is not a film for children. It starts out showing the Joker beating Robin to death with a crowbar, then ultimately blowing him up and killing him. This is straight out of the classic "Death in the Family" comics right down to the imagery. The violence continues as we see the Red Hood deliver a bag full of severed heads to mob leaders, characters getting shot point blank by Joker, red blood spatters on walls as people's heads are shot, and more. It's nothing you don't see in the movies, but it's kind of surprising if all you've ever seen of animated Batman is Timm's revered TV series...Batman: Under the Red Hood is required viewing for any Batman fan. Anyone that saw the animated series will also definitely want to add it to their collection...Unfortunately, the screening DVD which was sent to me has only one significant bonus feature. It's a sneak peek at the upcoming Superman/Batman: Apocalypse movie coming in the fall. It's based on the DC Comic by Jeph Loeb and Michael Turner. A big part of the featurette is discussing the debut of Supergirl, voiced by Summer Glau. Tim Daly and Kevin Conroy also return as Batman and Superman. But if you want to hear more about the making of Batman: Under the Red Hood, you're going to need to pick up the Blu-ray or the 2-Disc DVD set.

Aaron Peck, High-Def Digest Batman Under the Red Hood, is an animated Batman story for adults. It's gritty, and delves into the deep emotional histories of Batman and Robin.
Rene Rosa, Entertaining Evil With a great voice cast, fantastically kinetic animation, a good script and obvious respect for the source material it would be hard to tell any comic fan not to buy this film...
DVDVerdict.com Batman: Under the Red Hood isn't the greatest Batman adaptation (Bataptation?) ever made, but it delivers what it promises, a solid Batman adventure...
