Batman faces his ultimate challenge as the mysterious Red Hood takes Gotham City by firestorm. One part vigilante, one part criminal kingpin, Red Hood begins cleaning up Gotham with the efficiency of Batman, but without following the same ethical code.
Haunting and mysterious in both storytelling structure and emotional intensity; Batman: Under the Red Hood is an animated Batman installment with stunning style and heartbreaking characterizations.
Bruce Greenwood is quite a good fit for the Caped Crusader, although at points, he does seem like a poor imitator of Kevin Conroy. The rest of the cast, from Neil Patrick Harris as Nightwing to John DiMaggio as The Joker, is uniformly excellent. A truly great voice cast goes a long way in these stories, and Under the Red Hood doesn't disappoint in that regard.
However, the true brilliance with this DC film lies within its startling screenplay and the heartrending feeling that flows inside the main characters. It's a blunt, saddening,…
A tale of warped perceptions of justice, family and morality; Batman: Under the Red Hood is yet another stellar exploration of history's greatest superhero. The story revolves around that "edge" that Batman always resists going over, his defined distinction between vigilante justice and criminality. The story, following the brief and cutting demise of Robin, finds Batman in a state of seclusion, burrowing in to his own tunnel-visioned quest to rid Gotham of crime forever. The film becomes a three-way collision of three defined worldviews, Batman's rigid assertion of justice, Joker's chaotic anarchism and the Red Hood's warped absolutism. None of them question their methods, regret their actions. They are set in their ways, and the fundamental question is what ideology…
Not only one of the best animated Batman films out there, but I'd go as far as to say it's one of the very best Batman and comic book films out there. I'd put it up there with The Dark Knight and the original 1989 Batman. Wonderful voice talents too. Bruce Greenwood is a great Batman. Jensen Ackles makes a very complex Red Hood. John DiMaggio makes an even better, more menacing, sinister, and scarier Joker than Ledger's interpretation. The writing is smart and packs an emotional punch, especially during the very dark opening sequence. The animation is crisp and colorful. The action is exciting and gets you at unexpected moments. I only wish Nightwing was in it more. When your character is played with the charm of Neil Patrick Harris, you can't help but ask for more. This is one of the very best and very well told chapters in the ever-growing Batman saga.
This is a pretty interesting Batman animated movie from the DC Universe. Bruce Greenwood provides the voice of Batman who is dealing with the guilt of Robin's death, a mysterious villain named Red Hood and the greatest comic villain, The Joker.
This Gotham city seems much more violent than the Gotham seen in Batman movies...which for me made the movie even more interesting. The Joker is pretty impressive in this one....seems the artists were using Heath Ledger's Joker as an inspiration. Too bad the DC Universe is not making live action movies like this one. I think they might give Marvel a run for the money if they did. Final thought: This one is worth checking out.
Brilliant. I'd love to see alive action recreation of this one day. Brutal and very satisfying.
Batman: Under the Red Hood is one of my top favourite Batman animated movies. It has everything from amazing action sequences, voice acting, the darkness of Batman's universe, no Superman (not my fave superhero out there), a different portrayal of Joker (which is a good thing) and of course Dick Grayson (my fave robin) aka the first Robin as Nightwing.
The brutality of Joker's actions in the opening scene really shines as you are shown a new type of Batman animated movie. As the movies before Under the Red Hood were more PG with no or hardly any blood or violence to the point where they spit out blood, and if they did it would be an uncut version.
Throughout the years, Batman stories have always been about how Batman's villains are a reflection of his own personality. Scarecrow uses fear as weapon, the same method employed by the Caped Crusader himself; The Riddler is someone who uses brains over brawl to defeat his enemies, something Batman is known for, especially when fighting meta-human or alien threats; Two-face is a mirror of the Batman/Bruce Way dichotomy and the Joker is the abyss that the Dark Knight keeps walking on the edge of. But in February 2005, Judd Winnick might have just added the greatest of analogies to the Batman lore with his comic Batman: Under The Hood.
While Batman is my favourite comicbook character of all time, Jason Todd…
A pretty entertaining Batman movie that will not leave you as angry as The Killing Joke did. Voice acting could be better (with some actors not matching the character at all) but animation is good and it plays well with the canon.
We get this one but not Hush?
I finally watched this after years of people telling me it was the best DC animated film!! I can see why people say so, but I don't really agree. That title still belongs to Flashpoint Paradox because I'm trash. I wasn't that invested in the movie, but it /did/ have AMAZING dialogue that really hit me. Damn. The voice acting could have been better, but the animation was superb as usual, especially the fight scenes even though the sheer amount of them was what made me lose interest every now and then. The character development was amazing as well, and the flashbacks definitely helped with that. I also loved how they didn't hold back that much with the violence because, duh, Joker and the Red Hood. I would recommend this to any Batman lover and any DC fan in general.
Awesome movie from start to finish, the animation and sound effects are excellent and enjoyable. The plot is pretty good, I like how there were a few references to the Hush storyline from the comics, the soundtrack is amazing, probably one of the things that make this film pretty good, it sets the mood really well. The voice acting is on spot, looking forward to see more animated films like this one.
I would die for the Batfamily tbh.
One of the best Batman movies.
The Batman geeks in my life have been telling me to watch this for years. I’m new to the Batman world so it was distracting to hear “Bender’s” voice coming from the Joker.
The story was good, I like vigilantes that aren’t afraid to kill. That’s part of the allure of Batman, his refusal to kill. But that opens such a can of worms; if he repeatedly releases the Joker, knowing that he will escape and kill again, isn’t the blood on his hands too?
For a one hour story it covered some good basic ground. Sometimes it was spoonfed data-dumping but I guess that’s to be expected. Without it, I would have been lost. If you want to explore Batman, “Under the Red Hood” is a good watch.
'member when WB/DC made great animated films?
... I 'member.
