The Animated Adventures… Batman: Mask Of The Phantasm (1993)

Mask of the PhantasmWith the critical acclaim of the syndicated cartoon, receiving awards and praise for groundbreaking animation and stories, it was only a matter of time. With a story that rivaled Val Kilmer’s turn in ‘Batman Forever’, this shorter and crisper version actually out does the Schumacher film.

With flashbacks and a well paced script, our animated hero faces old flames, new foes and of course, saves Gotham from the Joker, a Joker very much based in the comic books but surprisingly more realistic than Jack’s. Combine that with the retro style of the series and it transitions very well.
A Dark Knight RisesIf your either a fan of animated films or just a Batman fan, this film will appeal to most.

    This started out as a direct to video film, but then got upgraded (and reformatted) for a theatrical release. Still the best Batman film (in any medium) but now equal to Miller’s Dark Knight Returns animated adaptation.
