I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Mt one complaint, although I understand the reasoning, is that this is miss-titled. Before you watch it, think of this as a Suicide Squad movie, Batman is not in this too much, and acts as more of a background character, and a plot device. He basically is a convenient way to move things forward. Once again, I'm okay with that. It was great seeing characters that I am less familiar with and allowing them to take a front seat to the action. The humor is spot-on, and there were a number of times I laughed out loud. The voice acting is great, and it was fantastic to have Mr. Conroy back in the cowl, also, Troy Baker is just phenomenal. There were a couple of moments where I wasn't actually sure if it was Baker or Mark Hamill. While the movie itself should be titled Suicide Squad: Assault on Arkham (which is a much cooler sounding title) that doesn't stop it from being great, easily a step up from Son of Batman and possibly even JLA: War, although we'll see if it's still as much fun the second time around.

I've been a fan of DC's animation since JL/JLU. most of their animated features have been excellent, and this one is no exception. this one is different in that it's based on the Arkham games, rather than being in-continuity with DC/WB's other features.

it's also based on Suicide Squad. that's a beyond-top-secret government program that takes a group of supervillains, implants bombs in them, and sends them on impossible missions as expendable agents.

THIS IS NOT A KID'S MOVIE. brutal violence, nudity, profanity, sex, and more violence. the protagonists (you can't call them "heroes") are unrepentant killers and thieves, motivated only by saving their own skins. the plot involves searching for Riddler's MacGuffin while avoiding Batman (who is searching for a different MacGuffin), and trying not to die.

it's filled with witty writing, subtle and effective character moments, tense infiltration scenes, and massive fights. voice acting is perfect, music is FANTASTIC, and the directing and editing both set the heavy tone, and lighten the tone when needed.

oh, and the Joker. this is possibly my favorite portrayal of the character since Batman: TAS. when bad guys have nightmares, *this* is the Joker they wake up screaming about.

as noted in just about every other review, this isn't really a "Batman" story. he's in it, but he's a supporting character. Deadshot, Harley, and Joker steal the show (then they moon the cameras, burn down the set, and hold the audience hostage).

"Bang."

Warner Bros. Animation studios continues to deliver the goods for direct to video, DC flicks with this latest title "Batman: Assault on Arkham".

[Spoiler-lite Synopsis] The Riddler is going public with top secret, government information but not if Amanda Waller has anything to say about it and after assembling a team of "expendable agents for impossible missions" (a.k.a. "Suicide Squad) including: Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, Black Spider, Killer Frost, and King Shark, she sends them to break into Arkham Asylum (where Batman has recently deposited Riddler... again) and retrieve the data. Only problem is, Bats ain't too keen on what's go'in down and not to mention a slightly bungled mission accidentally unleashes the Joker.

Character rendering across the board for this little flick is gorgeous while the animation is typically fluid with occasional bursts of stunning realism (the studio is really innovating in that area) and I enjoyed the kinda "Smokin Aces" intro for the team as well as a sort of "The Italian Job" theme for the break in. Batman never looked cooler (not crazy about pupils in his white eyes but oh well), Harley is a complete riot, Killer Frost is straight-up hot, King Shark proves to be a rather endearing villain and the Joker is absolute Joker perfection. Be aware that this one is continuing the studio's trend of more "mature" content in their animated films reflected in the language, violence and even a brief sex scene.

Overall, a pretty action-packed entry in the franchise with some top-notch voice-acting and it looks phenomenally awesome streaming in HD so I didn't regret the purchase one bit and would definitely recommend this one for fans of animation and definitely for DC addicts like myself. :o)

It's watchable but not batman arkham worthy. I am a huge Batman fan especially Joker and Harley Quinn it seem they have decided to ruin the characters with cheap plots ant writing... I remember Harley Quinn being much more sexy and fun not so slutty. also this story doesnt have any p[lace in the arkham series??? this was just a use of chap source material.. there are plenty of quality storys and writers why sell out to make something so bland. I was excited about Harley Quinn finally making an appearance in one of the dc original films but modern comics have ruined her character nothing like the original. this story was ok definitely but unfortunately the worst batman story in a while btw when did techno become a score for film :/

The world of the "Batman: Arkham" video game is brought to vivid animated life with DC and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment's "Batman: Assault on Arkham." The Dark Knight takes a backseat to the bad guys in what is the comic book equivalent of a heist or search and rescue flick much like "Red," "Ocean's 11," "Escape from New York," and others. The movie takes place after the events in "Batman: Arkham Origins." It's an exciting and humorous romp that will thrill fans of the game franchise and "mature" enthusiasts of super heroes.

Amanda Waller puts together a team of super villains to infiltrate Arkham Asylum and complete an unfinished job. She wants the Riddler assassinated for secret knowledge he possesses. Black Spider, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Killer Frost, KGBeast, and King Shark are all forced to comply to her wishes thanks to an explosive planted in their necks which Waller can detonate if they won't fulfill her demands.

One thing DC animated movie buffs will be happy about is the return of Kevin Conroy in the role of Batman. The rest of the voice cast is fine, but they're overshadowed every time the Dark Knight appears onscreen. Troy Baker does his best Mark Hamill impersonation as the Joker. I really thought it was Hamill until the credits rolled at the end.

"Batman: Assault on Arkham" is presented in 1080p High Definition (1.78:1) and 5.1 Dolby Digital. The picture is clean and highlights the great stylized animation. I always notice that the DC animated movies have this strange haze over them, but I just overlook it and concentrate on what's going on story wise and below it. The surround sound sets viewers right in the thick of the excitement and tension.

A word of caution to parents out there with children who love super heroes.
