With 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.
If your either a fan of animated films or just a Batman fan, this film will appeal to most.
