Editorial Reviews

Acclaimed screenwriters including David Goyer (Batman Begins), Josh Olson (A History of Violence) and Alan Burnett (Batman The Animated Series) join forces with revered animation filmmakers on six spellbinding chapters chronicling Batman’s transition from novice crimefighter to Dark Knight. These globe-spanning adventures pit Batman against the fearsome Scarecrow, the freakish Killer Croc and the unerring marksman Deadshot. Using an arsenal of high-tech gadgetry from Wayne Industries, Batman’s ethical boundaries exist only where he chooses to place them, leaving some fearful of his power. The sharp storytelling, complemented by stylish art from some of the world’s most visionary animators, masterfully depicts the blurred lines of Batman as man, myth and legend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny. June 30, 2008
Format:DVD
*This does contain some minor spoilers. I tried not to spoil too much.*

Batman: Gotham Knight is advertised as the missing link between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. There are six stories in total. Each story is by different artists, but they all link together and flow together nicely.

The first story is called, "Have I got a story for you," and involves a boy waiting for his friends to arrive. Once they do, each one of them tells a story about what they saw today and they all saw Batman. Each story is farfetched in its own way as this story capitalizes on teenagers stretching the truth and/or having overactive imaginations. It seems their day isn't finished though as the fight they all witnessed makes its way to that very skate park.

"Crossfire" is the story of Chris and Anna being apart of Lieutenant Gordon's MCU (Major Crime Unit). Chris thinks Batman is a vigilante that takes the law into his own hands while Anna is still unsure about him and is just thankful that good cops that know how to do their job are actually being respected now that Batman has shown up. After taking a recent Arkham escapee back to the asylum, they soon realize they're stuck in the middle of a gang war between Sal Maroni and The Russian.

"Field Test" begins with Lucius Fox showing Bruce Wayne some new gadgets. Amongst them is a harness equipped with an electromagnetic pulse strong enough to deflect bullets. Batman decides to test it out with Maroni, The Russian, and his goons. Everything is going Batman's way until a certain...glitch...happens.

"In Darkness Dwells" has everyone looking for a monster. Killer Croc, to be exact. Apparently, he was the former patient of a certain Johnathan Crane. Coincidentally, one of the reasons he was admitted to Dr.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy it for the extras July 18, 2008
Format:DVD
DC's recent spate of direct-to-DVD videos have been somewhat of a mixed bag. I didn't care for Superman - Doomsday (DC Universe Animated Original Movie), but I was very impressed by Justice League - The New Frontier (Two-Disc Special Edition) and greatly recommend it.

Sadly, this film isn't nearly as good as "...New Frontier", and only slightly better than "Superman - Doomsday".

The idea behind this movie, aside from milking out a few bucks before the release of "The Dark Knight" (can't wait to see it tomorrow!), is to do what the people behind The Animatrix did; get some respected Japanese animation studios and have them make some shorts based on the movie(s).

In principle this isn't a bad idea, and for something like The Matrix series, which so clearly draws inspiration from anime, it might work very well. It works less well, however, for a universe like the one shown in Batman Begins (Two-Disc Special Edition), which is much more grounded in as much reality as any super-hero film can be.

The animation in the movie is decent, but nothing to write home about (of course I'm not some big-time otaku, so take that for what it's worth). The storylines are ok. One where Batman gets a device that keeps him safe from bullets works out ok, as does the one with Killer Croc, but overall none of the stories are that great.

There are some good things, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, if you are open minded July 9, 2008
Format:DVD
As a fan of both anime and Batman, I was thrilled to hear about this set months ago, and it did not dissappoint.

Anime fans who are less open minded to American stories will dislike the storytelling, and American fans may be put-off by the animation; but if you are willing to appreciate the melding of different styles, you will like this.

The Bob Kane Bio was interesting, but the villian feature provided no information that Batman fans didn't already know. All Batman the animated Series episodes included are great too. If you haven't picked up the sets of that series then this is worth it simply to get those episodes.

I think most of the negative reviews are from people who had made up thier minds that they would dislike this from the begining (and after "The Batman" this does not surprise me) but if you come into it with an open mind you will like it.

I was expecting several different animated episodes that would introduce characters and tell complete stories. What I got was several different animated episodes that were snapshots of events that helped shaped the Batman that we will see in the next movie. Not that there isn't a fair amount of action - but I can see where the stories seem "incomplete". It's because they are not meant to be tidy and complete but instead to show more of the psychology of the character. Once you get your mind around that fact, you can potentially enjoy the episodes on the level I think they were intended.

Side Note: When I see things like this I LONG for a good ANIMATED PG-13 or R Batman movie. There are some things that live action/CG just can't do like animation!

Why are you reviewing this DVD if you haven't seen it yet?
Amazon should just not allow reviews to be posted until items are released. Simple as that.

Missing Japanese dialog
There is a Japanese Language track, but they've made it rather difficult to access. If you have a PS3, you have to go to the PS3 dashboard and switch your Blu-ray Language settings to Japanese, then insert the disc, and you should be able to play the Japanese track. By the way, subtitles are... Read more
