From the producers of Batman Begins and the Dark Knight theatrical releases comes the groundbreaking interpretation of the Batman's transition from beginner to Dark Knight. Six interlocking stories reveal Bruce Wayne's earliest adventures as Batman and the steps he took to become the grim avenger of Gotham City. These globe-spanning adventures pit Batman against the fearsome Scarecrow and two villains he's never faced before: the freakish Killer Croc and the unerring marksman known as Deadshot.

One incredible story is woven from six separate chapters, each with stylish art from some of Japan's greatest anime visionaries.]]>

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.Read more ›
I am a casual anime fan so I definitely appreciate the stylistic choices made in the film. If you have ever watched the Animatrix (an anthology bAsed on the matrix saga) than you should know how this film works. It was also nice to hear Kevin Conroy as bat as as well, I couldn't really imagine any other voice actor playing the role. The DVD extras were decent, you get a very informative documentary of Bob Kane and a great featurette that analyzes Batmans most popular villains. You also get an additional 4 episodes from Batman the animated series that help inspired some of the storylines made for the film. if you are a Batman fan, check this film out, if you are a fan of Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy than I suggest you buy this film to add to the collection because it is canon to some extent. I personally loved this movie, but it isn't for everybody.
