5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good July 1 2008
Format:DVD
To be frank I only liked the second half of the film. The first half constists of nothing but the view of Batman through the eyes of various civilians, and Batman beating up goons.

The second half or the last two stories are far more enjoyable. Working Through Pain was written by one of my favourite comic book writers Brian Azarello (100 Bullets), and he did a good job in annunciating that Bruce really doesn't want to work through the pain of his parents death. He wants to hold on to that pain because it gives him purpose and it drives him. And really if he were to give up that pain--he probably would find his life devoid and meaningless and purposeless. The Deadshot story, I liked because it shows the kind of Alpha male hero who is willing to stand down any threat (yet not a goon) warrior I like to see him portrayed as.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Anime for an Awesome Superhero! Dec 4 2013
Format:Blu-ray
4.5 out of 5
Review by A.P. Fuchs

Okay, now this is how you do something new with a character and do it right and totally change the formula. Not only was the style of Batman animation changed—this whole movie is done in anime by genuine Japanese anime directors—but also instead of giving us one big story, why not give us six shorter ones in the same universe?

This flick was meant as a bridge between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, giving audiences an in-depth glimpse into Batman’s past and what he’s been up to between those two movies. To make it even sweeter, Kevin Conroy voices Batman for all six short films.

They are (and what I thought):

Have I Got a Story for You -

Premise: A bunch of skater kids relate to each other firsthand encounters with the Dark Knight.

Really good, each story seeming to center around Batman chasing the same thief. The art direction is ridiculous! Did you see the backgrounds in this thing? While the character designs for this vignette were so-so, the backgrounds were insane. What makes this vignette special is it shows how the Batman legend was born, that is, people swapping stories, relating what they thought they saw versus what really happened, and how one tale leads to another until, eventually, Batman is myth and man combined.

Of course, sometimes the facts get straightened out, as per the ending of this story. You’ll have to see for yourself what I mean.

Crossfire -

Premise: Two cops take a recently-dropped-off-by-Batman felon to the Narrows for incarceration. There they encounter tons of trouble and Batman comes to the rescue.

This one is much grittier than the previous story, focusing heavily on the cops and gangs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sensually sumptuous but zero depth Feb. 16 2013
By Theo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Frankly, I found this one a disappointment.

But first, the good news: The visuals are genuinely amazing. As you're probably already aware, Gotham Knight consists of a series of loosely connected "minisodes" in the life of the Bat. In each one a different visual style is explored. A strong anime influence is apparent in most. The city-scapes throughout are a delight to look upon, and those in the first story in particular possess a level of sheer draftsmanship that I can only compare to the original Ghost in the Shell movie.

The incidental music is also excellent.

Unfortunately, that's where the good news ends.

To call the characters in these stories two dimensional would be to give them one dimension more than they deserve. In fact, I was originally going to title this review "Amazing visuals but zero _emotional_ depth". But that's when it hit me: there's really no depth of any kind. What we've got here are the kind of stories that you'd expect from the superhero genre if you hadn't picked up a comic book since the 1950's. The blood and violence may have been upgraded to adult levels. But everything else is reduced to empty banality.

Long time Bat-fans may be pleased to see that Kevin Conroy reprises his role as both Batman and Bruce Wayne. But really, given the material he has to work with, his talents are entirely wasted. In addition, in the story with the most classically manga-influenced art, Batman is drawn as a character who doesn't really appear to be fully out of his teens. In this context Conroy's otherwise outstanding dark and gravelly Batman-voice simply sounds ridiculous.

4.0 out of 5 stars A full range of Batman animation.... Jan. 21 2010
By Yves-Michel TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
That one was givien to me as an X-Mas gift. I did not expect anything out of it. Hummm !!! PG-13 Batman....

The 2nd disk is simply awesome. Half a disk of Bat-history plus 4 unreleased episodes from the Batman Animated serie (5 stars). The disk will make this package a collector's item. The interview with Bob Kane was casual and full of insights. The anthology of Batman's classic foes was a treat for me. A bit on the psychological side, but the Joker, the Riddler, Catwoman and all the others are all psychos to start with. A very very cool Special features disk....

The main feature is to a stylish exercise. It has to be looked at with a pair of experimental glasses. Do not expect 2 hours of simple Saturday morning fun. I watched some of it on a big TV and discovered tha it is the only way to really appreciate some of the stories. The runtime got in the way of the producers. They shoud have been given 30 minutes to fully express themselves. Example : The killer Croc one was well done, but ended abruptly. The 3 kids story was too simple. You will find something that will grab you, for sure.

Animation is breath-taking, at times. The complex layered soundtrack is to be heard VIA a house cinema system. An earfull....

This complex 2 disk ensemble will become a collector's item in some years. It may just have been released ahead of it's time.
