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.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
"Batman: Under the Red Hood", despite not giving Neil Partrick Harris's Nightwing much to do, manages to be one of the best Batman films out there, thanks to it's gripping story of just how far Batman suffers as a result of sticking to his moral codes, and how good intetions can create the ultimate monster. The voice-acting is solid with the likes of Bruce Greenwood as Batman, Jensen Ackles as the ultraviolent Red Hood and John DiMiggo as the Joker, the animation is fluid and has some of the most emtional moments in DC's animation studios.
Favourite Dc animated film to date, first time seeing it I was in love and watch it whenever I'm bored.
I love jason todd I love jason todd I love jason todd I love jason todd
Neil Patrick Harris voicing nightwing was such a good choice and his characterization was so good I am truly shook, unlike other movies where nightwings characterization is awful *cough* son of Batman and Batman vs robin *cough*

"Nothing we haven't seen before."
This is exactly how I feel about Batman: Under the Red Hood. I'm well aware it was the animation version of the comic yet it is certain that it has a different vibe. And by different vibe I mean: changing the perfectly good storylines with something much absurd or completely ignoring some that actually matters.
For example why weren't we see Stephanie's death and its deep impact on Bruce? Or why was Nightwing has to be complete comic relief when he is the best aid for Batman after Jason's death and his best & most loyal soldier? And why the hell Judd Winick had to change the story lines behind Jason's death and resurrection…
One of the best efforts brought from the DC Animated range, Batman: Under the Red Hood manages to deliver an engaging storyline, sombre character beats (brought alive thanks to the tremendous voice work), and some darn good action scenes.
Granted, Nightwing is an inessential component to the story, while Black Mask could've been interchanged with any thinly drawn mob boss and delivered the same results. But they're not the focus here, Batman and the mysterious Red Hood are, and their central focus makes the story one worth catching.
And good on the writers for improving on the "Superboy punches a hole in reality" bullshit explanation.
Someone make this into live action with Shia already pls, I would give my left nut if that's what it takes, not the right one tho, his price is a live action Court of Owls movie.
List is very loosely made.
Entries range from film scores made by composers to soundtracks that are brilliantly tossed together.…
