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.
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.
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.
Brilliant. I'd love to see alive action recreation of this one day. Brutal and very satisfying.
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.
Superb Batman animated movie focused around the Mysterious character The red hood. Must watch for Batman and Arkham game fans.
Great great great!!!
People kept telling me this was awesome. Instead, it was just a comic book cartoon. Too bad.
So good. The art-style is very similar to the epic Batman Animated Series.
The movie beautifully toys with Batman's morals.
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na, crowbars.
im not even a batman fan and this made me cry
MY BABY JASON
i normally don't watch western animation because most of the time it's trash and nowhere near as good as anime that gooks make, but i gave this one a shot and it was actually pretty good

The reason I love DC animated original movies so much is because their so short but so entertaining. Like this for example, in the runtime of 75 minutes it tells a story that's so beautiful and exceptionally well done and crafted to perfection. I don't know what's better, the story or the gorgeous and lushness of the animation style used for this? Some of the scenes in this movie, like the one at the beginning, are ripped straight from the original comic book and that just makes me happy yet blows me away. The casting for the voices is spot on and all…
Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
