This post is my 3rd entry in this month’s A Timely Blogathon being run by Anna of Film Grimoire and myself.
Number of Times Seen – 1 (6 Jul 2016)
Brief Synopsis – An anthology of six different Batman adventures as he defends Gotham from evil.
My Take on it – I didn’t know what to expect from this film and was surprised that instead of getting one Batman adventure, we get six.
Some are good and some are bad but all are too short and therefore lack the depth and substance expected from stories of the Dark Knight.
Of the stories presented, the bezt is by far the fibal one which features Dead Shot.
Its too bad the story was too short because it went by in the blink of an eye and I would have appreciated something longer.
Bottom Line – Not as good overall as some of the other DC/WB films. Each story feels too short and lacking more substance. The best adventure is the one with Dead-Shot but it goes by too quickly to appreciate it more.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – On the DVD commentary, Kevin Conroy admits that he had never read about the Dark Knight until he originally auditioned for the part back in 1992 on Batman: the Animated Series. When he was told the back-story of murdered parents and a quest for revenge, Conroy, who was a trained Shakespearean actor, thought they were telling him the story of Hamlet. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
