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
