Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
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.
Pobre Jason Todd, sempre o Robin que deu errado.
Achei o Asa Noturna meio aleatório na história, mas tirando isso e o fato da voz do Jensen Ackles nem parecer dele (sério, mexeram horrores, se eu não soubesse quem é e não tivesse visto o nome nos créditos nem imaginaria), o drama do Batman, Capuz Vermelho e a participação do Coringa foram bem feitinhas. A prova disso é que no fim, quando tem o flashback do primeiro dia do Jason Todd como Robin eu dei uma lacrimejadinha de tristeza... :(
Batman: Under the Red Hood is the first DC animated film I recommend to anyone who has not seen won because it capture the tone that the studio goes for and it is the best film they have made.
With a runtime of only 75 minutes it is truly impressive that this film is able to reach the depth of mature emotions that it reaches. The film is so compact and full of impactful moments and storytelling that it feels as if it is AT LEAST 90 minutes; and that is a good thing.
The mature themes that are dealt with in the film, largely the themes of guilt and revenge, come across impressively well for such a short, animated…
Alongside the wonderful "Mask of the Phantasm", this is the best animated Batman-movie yet.
An intriguing story that doesn't rely too much on great action set-pieces (like most of the DC Animated Original Movies - especially the extremely boring "Superman/Batman: Public Enemies") but is able to actually tell a thrilling and dark story, with just enough funny touches (Neil Patrick Harris is a delight) to be not too bleak.
Having Bruce Greenwood as the voice of Batman/Bruce Wayne was an inspired choice.
Very enjoyable and compelling. Pretty straight-forward story, and it felt very much like a comic. A very solid Batman movie.
Better than most comic book films. I want to see this story done on the big screen (once DC gets their act together).
not as good as Returns, but still fun!
I've never given a single shit about Batman. This changed that.
"And doing it because... because he took me away from you."
:'((( Right in the feels
Based off of what I've seen from the DC animated films, this one has one of my favorite storylines, even though the animation isn't as good as the newer films.
I loved The Joker. I loved Nightwing. And I loved Jason Todd.
There is something about super hero movies that I can never get enough of. I can even tolerate a bad…
