Batman:Gotham Knight, a tie in Anime direct to DVD feature to bridge the gap between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight is a wonderful, well done, excellent piece. One of the best Anime features I have seen. It is slightly better than The Animatrix which is similar to Batman: Gotham Knight. Batman: Gotham Knight features six segments, each written and drawn differently.Segment One, Have I got a Story For You: A group of youngsters at a Skateboard park tell stories about their encounter with Batman. Each one is different and there is a neat twist at the end. This one featured the best special <more>
effects of the Six and its also the lightest but you can't even call it that because the tone of the story is still pretty dark.Segment Two, Crossfire: Two Gotham detectives, part of the new Major Crimes Unit or MCU which is ran by Lt.Gordon have different view points of Batman but their viewpoints are changed forever when they encounter Batman at a fight between rival mobs ran by Sal Maroni and a new comer, the Russian. The dialog in this one is the weakest but it makes up with awesome action sequences and character development.Segment Three, Field Test: This story, we get to see and learn more about the gadgets Batman uses and his moral code when it comes to fighting crime and this one features more of the gang war between Maroni and The Russian. This one has probably the best dialog and character development of the six segments.Segment Four, In Darkness Dwells: Batman hunts Killer Croc who was a victim of Scarecrow's fear toxin and experiments. During the hunt, Batman encounters Scarecrow and his "Cult". This one was probably my favorite despite the fact Killer Croc is not in this but a minute or two.Segment Five, Working Through Pain: This segment explores Bruce Wanye's training he uses to fight crime and working with a local "witch" Cassandra who teaches him the techniques he will use to fight crime in Gotham City. This one has really good visuals and an interesting story, in fact this one was almost my favorite segment but the blood and gore is a bit of a turn off especially at the beginning.Segment Six, Deadshot: Batman battles an assassin Deadshot. This one had the best pacing of the six and the final fight with Deadshot was brilliantly animated and fun.Overall, Batman: Gotham Knight had its flaws but they were minor flaws and I highly recommend this DVD to any die hard Batman fan or to anyone who plans on seeing The Dark Knight.
Just in time for the premiere of the new movie comes this animated adventure.Written by the team that gave us the Batman Animated series, the animation in this show is done in the style of Japanese Manga cartoons. It follows the events of Batman Begins, where the Dark Knights crusade against crime is producing results. Batman faces off against Scarecrow, Killer Croc and Deadshot in six interconnected stories.Don't let the fact that this was done by the animation team fool you, however. Like the recent "Superman: Doomsday", they have a much heavier theme in character and story.A <more>
major bonus. Kevin Conroy reprises his role as the voice of Batman/Bruce Wayne. I've always felt that is what Batman should sound like, and Conroy's interpretation is better than any live actor whose ever portrayed him. Then again, I've always felt animation is a better medium than live action for any superhero story.There is a drawback that Bruce Wayne has the spiky hair of an anime character, which was just slightly off-putting. It's a very minor quibble, however.
Batman: Gotham Knight is the first time ever to see an American superhero done in the style of anime Japanese Animation . The film is set in the timeline of the live-action Chris Nolan Batman films, Batman Begins and the Dark Knight. The film is made up of six interlocking short films, from six critically acclaimed Japanese filmmakers. These six stories feature each directors unique look and art style. On top of all of this, these six stories were written by six different professional screenwriters, including the writer of Batman Begins, David Goyer.Overall I highly enjoyed Batman: Gotham <more>
Knight, visually it is the most awe inspiring piece of Batman animation ever produced. The various forms of Gotham City shown in this film are all highly imaginative and creative, and are in my opinion among some of the finest incarnations of the fictitious city to ever be seen. Then on top of that the action is superb, featuring some of the best Batman villains from the comics, such as: the Scarecrow, Killer Croc, and Deadshot. After watching this, I was just completely blown away at the high level of production that each one of these six stories were produced at, in particular the story featuring the Scarecrow is quite possibly the finest animated Batman story told since the end of the Batman Animated Series from the '90s. I really am hoping that Warner Bros. and DC will produce a sequel to this, because it was amazing.I give Batman: Gotham Knight a perfect 10 out of 10!
Before I get on expressing myself I want to say that seeing Batman: Gotham Knight is simply an imperative. A simple fact that it bridges the gap that occurs between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight alone is why this needs to be viewed as a prelude to The Dark Knight, but it isn't wholly the reason why this must be viewed. Yes, the concept itself is taken from Animatrix which served the same purpose, but that also isn't the sole reason. It's because this is easily a fine piece of work on all grounds. I have never been a fan of anime, but that's merely due to me not being <more>
genuinely interested in the medium. What a fine example of execution this truly is. Consisting of six vignettes written by six different writers, such as David S. Goyer and Josh Olson A History of Violence and directed by different talents in different styles this has exactly the balance that is required to be fully entertained, mentally stimulated, and visually inspired. I cannot add anything more to it that could not be summarized in those exact three adjectives. This one's a keeper, and should not go amiss.
Very Helpful To Watch Before Watching The Dark Knight (by ctg0724)
I saw this before I watched the Dark Knight. It proved to be very much worth my time. I was introduced to characters like the Russian, Sal Maroni, and Officer Ramirez. I learned more about Wayne Enterprises' plans to advance technology.Another thing that was nice is it continued the character development for Bruce Wayne since the Dark Knight did not really have any room for his character to be more explored.The illustrations were very impressive. The stories were well-written. My favorite two stories were the first one and "Working Through Pain". I recommend this to all true <more>
fans of the new Batman Universe that started with Chis Nolan's Batman Begins.
If you're a Batman fan or are simply in love with the recent films, definitely check this one out. "Gotham Knight" is a unique film to start. Obviously released to fill the gap between "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight", this film does this wonderfully. This direct-to-DVD release lives up to the good old Batman cartoons and movies, like "Subzero" which I so greatly enjoyed as a child and to this day. This however is a much darker incarnation that I for one thoroughly enjoyed. The anime-style animation is beautiful and looks incredible, helping <more>
the set the atmosphere in Gotham. The story by David Goyer, Josh Olson, and Alan Burnett is excellent and serves up a more serious world, one I'm thankful for. Kevin Conroy returns to play the voice of the Caped Crusader, YES!!! His performance, obviously, is dope, along with all the other voice actors. My favorite part of these six interlocking stories would definitely be the fact we see a different version of the Bat each time. And each one looks fantastic, plus we see Dead Shot and Scarecrow. Killer Croc was a bit too different from previous incarnations for my taste, but he still gets the job done I'd love to see Killer Croc in the next Christopher Nolan film, that is if they plan on making it... . All in all "Gotham Knight" is great and I highly recommend it.
Rejoice as Kevin Conroy returns as Batman once again (by theycallmemrglass)
This is a collection of 6 animated Batman stories in Anime style aimed to fill the gap between Nolan's Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. Each story is directed by different people but unlike Animatrix WB's first animated filler compilation, done for the Matrix series , the look and feel of every episode is too similar to actually distinguish. The mood is more dark, violent and brooding than any other screen Batman interpretations. The first episode starts of relatively lightweight and is the most humorous. The stories then get edgier and darker. The whole compilation makes for an <more>
enjoyable viewing as Batman deals with the wild imagination of kids, spiritual healing, Hinduism!, Scarecrow, Killer Croc, and a hit-man called Deadshot. But for me, the real joy of watching Gotham Knights is listening to the definitive Batman/Bruce Wayne voice that is Kevin Conroy, who has been the voice of Batman in every animated form from 1990 to 2006 I think . Here, he is the voice of several variations of Batman and is pure joy to listen to. I have to admit though that a couple of Bruce Wayne animated interpretations don't really fit with his voice but Conroy's voice acting more than makes up for it. The animation is great but not anywhere near as radical as Animatrix or recent Anime films. The action scenes are quite thrilling. Also, very worthy of mention is the exhilarating soundtrack, particularly in the Scarecrow episode. All in all, this is a great addition to the Batman animated collections.
I heard about this movie around the time when the first Dark Knight trailer was released and I was really excited about seeing it and when I did it did not disappoint at all. Here are the reason why this movie is so good. The movie follows a great storyline and each of the six stories are very well done out and each have a terrific plot. The voice over actors are great such as Kevin Conroy as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gary Dourdan as Crispus Allen, Corey Burton as Scarcrow, David McCallum as Alfred, George Newbern as Killer Croc, Jim Meskimen as Jim Gordon and deadshot. etc. Also I was really happy <more>
that Kevin Conroy was returning to play Batman again. The animation is really well done. The way the characters look in it is really good but they look different in each story because each story is done by different people but all of them are really well done. The way batman himself look in this movie is amazing each story has a different costume and look but are all amazing. Each story has a different style of animation and they are all very well done. The way the villains look in the movie are also just amazing such as scarecrow and killer crock and deadshot. The action in this movie is really good and very intense and very entertaining to watch. so I am sure that you will not be disappointed with Batman: Gotham Knight. So make sure that you rent or buy Batman: Gotham Knight because it is great.Overall Rating: ******** out of ********** **** out of *****So now all I am waiting for is The Dark Knight because I know it is going to be one of the greatest movies ever made.
