Batman: Under the Red Hood
Dare to Look Beneath the Hood.
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,…
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.
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.
An action-packed animated adaptation of two Batman story arcs.
Although I have not read the comics in question that didn't stop me enjoying this stand-alone 75 minute film, due to it's familiar faces and solid plot. After all the Nolan films it was a bit hard to get on board with the more comicbooky elements but this was also quite dark.
Worth a look if you're a fan. 6/10.
Batman: Under the Red Hood plays out like a crime drama fused with an 80's Saturday morning children's cartoon. It has some kickass action, plenty of blood but also follows a rather formulaic story resulting in the "reveal" which could be seen a mile off, to be fair it's told to us quite early on, and a denouement resembling a White Collar episode.
Batman's cool though, Bruce Greenwood does a good job, The Joker is alright, his script is a little off in points, but John DiMaggio does an okay job and Jensen Ackles as the Red Hood is pretty good. He's a cool villain. So's the Black Mask, though not featured very heavily in this.
I love Batman and I really liked this, Under the Red Hood is the first animated Batman feature I've seen, but I can tell you that it won't be my last either. A solid effort for a solid film.
Great animated Batman movie, it looks good, it feels good and sounds good even without Conroy and Hamill at the helm.
The problem is that is kinda short, and felt rushed at the moments, and I didn't like that the Joker used same joke, or very similar, twice.
It's very fun, and must watch for any Batman fan.
Filme irado! Revelador e com certeza explodiu minha cabeça!
Sometimes it feels like there are thousands of these Made-For-TV features from the folks at DC. And while I certainly don't mind watching them (and the boys love to watch them), I struggle to make them stick out in my mind. So I've started to catalog them based on the most distinctive thing each brings to the table. ...which is to assume that they all bring something distinctive to the table (and that's not always true).
This one is easy to remember primarily because its Joker is much, much older than any other I can remember seeing. And more physically imposing than most interpretations. And that's about it.
excellent movie , watch it NOW even better then the latest live action movies
One of the best animated Batman movies outside of the DC Animated Universe.
After see this film you can understand why Batman didn't kill anybody in his movies or in his animations, that jocker reminds me the Heath Ledger...cold, freak and crazy.
So this was kinda a predictable if you know the lore. Or if you just see the prologue set up. The voice acting of the Joker is the best part. The action and graphic violence was on par with this animated flicks. It was pretty cool to see for free.
one of the few dark Batman animated films under the recent wave of DC helm and it's fantastic! it's the repertoire of no-nonsense, unapologetic, and action-packed superhero movie. a no BS, strong willed monster and definitely stirring to the core; exemplary cool.
This is the best day of my life :'(
There is something about super hero movies that I can never get enough of. I can even tolerate a bad…
A little bit different from my recent directors polls, but the same rules. Two votes max (if I gave people…
