As far as animated Batman series go I much prefer the series that ran during the '90's on the WB rather than the current incarnation. In fact I've only seen a mere handful of the new series and just wasn't inspired enough to tune in for more. Well, if this direct to DVD movie is anything to go by I may have to change that attitude.

I had no intention of buying this DVD (no really, I swear I didn't) but something made me take a chance on it while I was picking up the other Batman DVD releases on that fateful Tuesday afternoon. Frankly I'm glad I did because "Batman vs Dracula" is really a dang good animated Batman adventure and a fine Halloween treat to boot. Now I won't claim it to be perfect (because it isn't) but it is a more than decent direct to DVD release.

The story involves Joker and Penguin escaping from Arkham Asylum in search of a treasure hidden within the depths of Gotham Cemetary. The Joker/Penguin alliance falls apart and it is the Penguin who stmbles not upon the treasure but the remains of Count Dracula himself. In true Hammer film style Penguin accidently resurrects Dracula, becomes his thrall and the two begin to unleash a reign of terror upon Gotham City as the Count begins to transform its citizens into vampires. The creation of these "Lost Ones" is blamed on the Dark Knight and he begins to realize he has more on his hands than the average maniacal super villain he usually has to contend with. The irony of two individuals who use a bat as their avatar to achieve their ends is not lost upon Dracula (or the writers) and he soon sets out to destroy the Cowled One. I won't go into any more of the plot, you get the general idea.

I was bummed out when BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES and JUSTICE LEAGUE (UNLIMITED) were taken off the television. I did give the new BATMAN series a try, but I couldn't really get into it. Part of the reason, no doubt, is that I miss Kevin Conroy's never-to-be-surpassed voice portrayal of Batman/Bruce Wayne. Another reason is that the new series just isn't as good as the classic 1990s version. Nevertheless, on a whim, I purchased this animated movie and, to my surprise, ended up enjoying it. The Batman meets his perfect adversarial foil in the sanguinary Count, who taunts our hero: "Try as you may, you cannot out-bat me." This version of the Caped Crusader might be younger and, therefore, not as experienced or battle tested, but the same intensity and obsessive brooding are present. Definitely, he broods more here than he does in his regular series. True, Rino Romano isn't Kevin Conroy, but there's an earnestness and a certain timbre in his voice that made me not be as critical as I might've been. By the same token, Kevin Michael Richardson isn't Mark Hamill, but I actually relished Richardson's different take on the demented Joker, whose latest incarnation here seems to be more formidable than ever.

The storyline: The Joker and the Penguin's escape from Arkham Asylum accidentally leads to the resurrection of Count Dracula. Soon thereafter, Gotham citizens, dubbed the "lost ones," alarmingly begin to vanish. When the Batman investigates, he ends up clashing with the original bat-man, who then proceeds to convincingly stomp on him in their first tussle. Nevertheless, the Dark Knight is intent on not only defeating the master vampire but also on curing his infected victims.

I bought this for my daughter who is a Batman fan. I normally don't comment much more than 'she enjoyed it' on her entertainment purchases. I have a few extra comments on this particular movie. The music is amazingly good. Full orchestral sound, lyrical (if rather melancholy) melodies, classical harmonies. Some very intriguing solos (violin typically) interweaving among the orchestral parts. The music credits are to Thomas Chase Jones. The art is typical - rather flat, dark (but a touch lighter than other animated entries). Filming/direction is good - keeps you watching, effects are added appropriately (confusion, explosions, etc). The two big letdowns are the script and the voice actors. The script is flat-out horrible. It lacks consistency, logic, and sounds like something someone who has watched all the classic horror movies might put together in a hurry. The voices, except for Batman, never sound as though they are actually interested in anything going on or with what they are saying. Batman has a nice voice, Vicky Vale & Alfred are easy to identify. Their three voices carry the movie. I don't know how the various villains decided to read their parts but it didn't sound like any of them were ever together for reading, or read their dialog before recording, or cared about what emotion their character is portraying.

I choose this rating because the movie is good. What I like about the movie is that one is turning the city into an army of vampires while the other does everything he can to stop the mayhem. But Dracula isn't simply one of The Batman's usual foes: he's got supernatural powers of strength, speed and mind control. Even with his arsenal of high-tech gadgets, the Dark Knight is still a mortal man. This is the one face-off that could clip The Batman's wings permanently! Also starring favorite characters like The Joker, The Penguin and Vicky Vale, in her first appearance in the series, this feature-length animated movie is fang-tastic! What I dislike about the movie is that I wanted to see more of it. I would recommend this movie to other people.
