Batman Gotham Knight (DVD)

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. Some of the world's most revered animation visionaries bring to life the one and only Dark Knight: Batman! One incredible story is woven from six separate chapters, each with stylish art from some of Japan's greatest anime visionaries.

*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.

With The Dark Knight just around the corner, Warner Bros. and DC has released another more than solid, direct to DVD animated feature with Batman: Gotham Knight. A collection of six interlocking stories featuring various writing and animator talent, Gotham Knight gets off to a bit of a rocky start, but winds up being a thoroughly entertaining ride while it lasts. "Have I Got a Story For You", with a script from A History of Violence screenwriter Josh Olson, revolves around a group of kids and their stories about encountering Batman in action. The story and animation here aren't really anything special, but thankfully things get better from here on forward. "Crossfire", with a script from acclaimed comic writer Greg Rucka, finds detectives Allen and Ramirez caught in the middle of a gang-war between mob factions, with Batman in the middle as well. "Field Test", with a script from Jordan Goldberg, features a ridiculously young Bruce Wayne putting new gadgets from Lucius Fox to use, while Batman Begins and Blade writer David Goyer contributes the excellent "In Darkness Dwells", where Batman takes on the Scarecrow and Killer Croc. Comic writer Brian Azzarello contributes "Working Through Pain", which is an intriguing look at Bruce's past lessons to overcome physical pain, and the excellent finale entitled "Deadshot" is written by classic animated series writer Alan Burnett and features a bloody face-off between Batman and the gun-toting assassin of the title name. The various animation techniques used throughout may not be everyone's cup of tea (some will certainly thrill you more than others), but as a whole Gotham Knight is a dark (and surprisingly violent) blast.Read more ›

Batman: Gotham Knight was advertised to be the missing link between Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins and The Dark Knight films. While there are reoccurring characters in the film that make appearances in this collection. there wasn't anything in this movie that contains important content that will comepletely tie in with the respective movies. As a stand alone project, I thoroughly enjoyed all 6 short stories of the Batman. If story delves into different ideologies of Bruce Wayne such as his ideology towards guns, his training, and stories that are similar to monthly batman comics back in the day. The overall presentation was the most impressive part of the film, each short story has a distinct style that creates different aspects of the Dark Knight.

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.
