Silent J’s review:
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.
