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.
Not including Mark Hamill, John DiMaggio's the best voice of the Joker.
Another prime example of Batman done right. Highly enjoyable!
Dark. Haunting. Violent. Intense.
That pretty much describes 'Batman: Under the Red Hood. Aside from the old Batman animated series and 'Mask of the Phantasm' (one of my favourite animated films ever), this was my first journey into the DC animated universe and I loved it!
I was surprised at how dark it was. The story was told with such emotion that I was sucked in right from the start. The animation is beautiful and the voice acting is superb. John DiMaggio is great at the Joker, but he's still no Mark Hamill. As a result, it did take me a while to get used to his voice in this. He's still great though and plays the Joker with a…
I've watched this film over 5 times and I can say with absolute certainty that this is one of the best Batman movies ever made. Period.
Jó feldolgozása volt ennek a történetnek, de nekem az játékban vázolt verzió is tetszett.
The story was a little fast. It was great how dark the story was. Nightwing was underused. The end was uncomfortable and a little sad but not all and things can be happy and perfect.
A retread of the far superior Mask of the Phantasm and Return of the Joker.
This is why DC is the ultimate animation studio ever. This movie is a masterpiece of animation, voice acting and story telling. The action is relentless, and very well done. the story is easy to follow and exeptionaly deep at the same time. And the voice acting is so spot on, even the Joker sounds right and in acordance with his look. The only thing I had a problem with was the Amazo scene at the begining. other than that, a solid 4.5/5
Intense animated "Batman" flick takes place five years after the death of Jason Todd (the second "Robin"), as a mysterious vigilante called The Red Hood is taking apart Gotham City's underworld, one murder at a time. While Batman tries to end the Hood's reign of terror and discover his identity, he learns that he should probably be careful what he wishes for.
Much grittier and more "adult" than even "Batman: The Animated Series" was (while "T.A.S." picked up where the Burton films left off, this one is definitely set in the ultra-violent Christopher Nolan-era Batman universe), with a cool "anime" look to it, this was simply a great Batman flick, period.
Holy crap, are all of these "DC Animated Universe" movies this good? I'm gonna have to check out more from this series.
There is something about super hero movies that I can never get enough of. I can even tolerate a bad…
