REVIEW: Batman: Under the Red Hood

REVIEW: Batman: Under the Red Hood

Just a very small review of Batman under the red hood there is no spoilers I just give my opinion of the film.

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. Killing is an option. And when the Joker falls in the balance between the two, hard truths are revealed and old wounds are reopened.

Bruce Greenwood as Batman is ok but I’d feel it could be better same with both Robin and Nightwing as for the Joker well I have to say it has to be the worst 1 out of the whole cast the voice does not match the look of him at all but that’s just what I think .. But as the film and story moved on I did start to like the voice acting a lot more but I still do think the voices could be better than they were. But that’s not the case for Jensen Ackles as Red Hood he was awesome did a really good job of it by far the best voice acting in it ( I must say I really don’t like Ackles at all but in this id forgotten it was him by the end of the film so that’s a good thing ).

The animation is great it really very well done as is the whole look of Gotham. The bat cave has a nice look to it as does the bat mobile and the batwing. I really liked how Batman and Robin and even Nightwing were draw although for my own strange reason id of liked to have seen Nightwing with longer hair but that’s my problem. Joker I think looked the overall best he looked a bit like the TDK's joker but not too much but he did look like he was a freekin nut case but this leads me on from the point I made before about his voice were as I think the way the Joker is drawn he looks crazy it’s his eyes they really just make him look nuts but the voice just sounds to calm I’m sure a lot of you will disagree an that’s fine I do like his voice I just think it should more psychotic.

So what your thinking is this worth the watch hell yes it’s just as good if not better than the Wonder Woman film witch up until this point was in my opinion the best animated film from DC now this firmly takes its place. I now hope that DC will bring this type of awesome ness ness to the live action films.

5/5 Awesome flick any fan will love this

I just watched this last night, and I completely agree.. The Joker's voice wasn't that great and Red hood had the best voice by far.. great movie and great review

mtwicked - 7/13/2010, 1:28 PM
I pre-ordered to. Trying to resist watching online. It's been leaked pretty early, wonder how that will effect sales.

@ Roscoe182 What's your problem with Ackles? Not having a go, just curious about your rather strong dislike. I think he's a decent actor.
UncleDrew - 7/13/2010, 1:36 PM
Man Jensen Ackles is a great actor and he could portray the real Red Hood in the new Batman movie, of course they would have to change the story but I think it could work.
TheAmazingSmitty - 7/13/2010, 2:01 PM

Trev4Dredd - 7/13/2010, 2:11 PM

I'm downloading this movie right now
BryEL - 7/13/2010, 2:33 PM
I'm sure we can all agree that Nightwing looks better with longer hair..
maywitch - 7/13/2010, 5:18 PM
I'm so glad to hear the movie is so awesome.

What's your prob with Ackles though? I can't imagine he's done anything that insulting to anyone's sensibilities. :D

Shaman: I was always on the side of Ackles as Captain America. Dammit, he should have been it, he would have been perfect. :)
REDSTORM - 7/13/2010, 7:15 PM
Great movie! Maybe almost on par to Phantasm.
Cattigan619 - 7/13/2010, 8:12 PM
I just finished watching it online and it is really awesome!
koterzwinchester - 7/13/2010, 9:17 PM
I'd see it just for Jensen Ackles, though it does also seem interesting. By the way, do you have a problem with punctuation? There are some periods, but mostly the sentences run together. It's kind of confusing/annoying.
Sorry, just an english geek.
Jib7z - 7/13/2010, 11:01 PM
It was so epic....there's only a few things that got on my nerves. I wish Nightwing had been in it a bit more. I wish Robin had been there. And i also wish people would stop calling him "Raish" Al Ghul. Only a few other issues, and most of those were very nit picky on my part.
maywitch - 7/14/2010, 7:50 AM
Jib7z, I agree, what the hell is it with the "Raish"? It sounds ridiculous, imo. :D
oreilly - 7/14/2010, 8:01 AM
Awesome movie and YES, Ackles was the standout performer in it. The one thing I disagree with is John DiMaggio as the Joker. He's second only to Mark Hamill to voicing the Joker for me and that toned down edge he brought to the character actually made him more psychotic and creepy IMO. Nightwing was the only downer for me here. NPH is a man of many talents, but one of those talents isn't playing Nightwing, IMO, and the design was just all wrong.

GreenHalJordan - 7/14/2010, 9:35 AM
i just finished it. AMAZING! a 10
InSpace - 7/14/2010, 9:45 AM
Dont like NPH voicing Niightwing
WarNoodle - 7/14/2010, 11:52 AM
This had to be the best batman cartoon movie I have ever seen! perfect 10 from me!!!
SkWiRlDaDdY - 7/14/2010, 10:19 PM
This movie would have indeed made a great live action film! Also you are spot on with the joker this guy sucks!! Mark Hamill is the Joker!!!!

Septon - 7/16/2010, 10:31 PM
I have just seen the movie and the unrealistic unbloody violence just spoil me everything! Worse of all, blood appears and disappears on Robin in the opening sequence! The floor is full of blood but the boy is perfectly clean! Even after the explosion : no one [frick]**g drop of blood. It's RIDICULOUS !!!

I'am a huge fan of Bruce Timm and its team, but this time it's RIDICULOUS! And the car chase sequence is so UGLY. Please, PLEASE stop with this [frick]**g 3D ugly sequences!

So bad because the movie is really awesome.

Enough of bullshits, we want separate releases for this DCUAOM collection. PG-13 and uncut ones. An uncut version of Under the Red Hood need to be release, please.
Angelus - 7/17/2010, 2:40 PM
I'm watchin Batman Under The Red Hood now and so far its seems okay.

grnkronic20 - 7/18/2010, 1:01 PM
Am I the only one that thought that Nightwing was terrible in the this. It wasn't only NPH, that part was bearable, but his dialogue was horrific. It made him sound like it was his first day on the job. It was incredibly disappointing, but other than that this movie was amazing.
