Product Description

Although the live-action Batman franchise faltered artistically after Tim Burton gave up control, the slack was taken up by the Saturday morning cartoon show, whose creators are responsible for this feature film. Though a cartoon, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is less cartoonish than the popular '60s TV show (which spawned its own movie, Batman: The Movie). Mask of the Phantasm combines the noir of the original comic book, the violence and dark humor of the Dark Knight comic book revision, and Burton's two movies.

In Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, everyone's favorite schizophrenic billionaire crime fighter is investigating the murders of several prominent gangsters. Meanwhile, his ex-fiancée and her father are back in town. Through flashbacks, these two death-obsessed kids are shown falling in love (she lost her mother; he lost both parents--of course, they meet in a graveyard), until she leaves quickly and mysteriously. Along the way, there's a short course in the origins of the Batman costume and the origins of the Joker (voice of Star Wars' Mark Hamill!), a big fight with the smoke-enshrouded Phantasm character, who is suspected of killing the gangsters, and an even bigger fight with the Joker at the abandoned Gotham World's Fair grounds. Altogether, a good ride. --Andy Spletzer

Product Description

Unmasking the Phantasm is just one of the twists in Batman: Mask of Phantasm, "one of the most imaginative films of the past year" (Chuck Rich, Westwood One). Only here will you discover all-new revelations about Batman's past, his archrival the Joker and the most grueling battle of Batman's life - the choice between his love of a beautiful woman and his vow to be the defender of right. Batman: Mask of Phantasm is a "mystery that is genuinely absorbing, suspenseful and moving" (Cincinnati Enquirer) and a film no fan should be without! Can the Dark Knight elude the police, capture the Phantasm and clear his name? Year: 1993 Director: Eric Radomski Starring: Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill, Dana Delany, Hart Bochner, Abe Vigoda

4.0 out of 5 stars Mask of the Phantasm Jan. 4 2011
Format:DVD
After not seeing this film since its début in the early 90's, it was with great anticipation I put the disk into my PS3.

If you are a fan of Bruce Timm's work in the DCAU, then you're obviously going to enjoy what this film has to offer. If you enjoyed the recent Batman films by Christopher Nolan then you're likely to enjoy this animated offering.

Many laud this title as the best Batman film as it sticks close to its comicbook roots, but doesn't tone down the story's darkness to patronise to kids (much like The Dark Knight). The art deco design of the film goes well with the gothic nature of Batman, and the storytellers used colour to great effect as an element of storytelling.

The disc itself is double-sided with both widescreen and fullscreen versions. The widescreen version looks great upscaled on an HDTV. I don't know when a blu-ray version of this film will be made, but this DVD is more than adequate until it comes along.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Major Triumph in Batman Cinema! Dec 23 2013
Format:DVD
A mysterious costumed phantasm haunts Gotham City, knocking off mob bosses thus drawing the Batman out from the shadows to stop him. Only when the Dark Knight starts to uncover clues as to who this person might be does he discover how deeply personal this phantasm's crusade has become, not just to the phantasm himself, but to the Batman as well.

Pulling out all the stops with top-notch storytelling, animation and direction, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is a hallmark in Batman's movie history that's guaranteed not to disappoint!

This movie is unbelievably amazing and rivals even the almighty Dark Knight Trilogy that would begin on the big screen twelve years later. Actually, Mask of the Phantasm was in theatres and I remember going there with a friend and being stunned start to finish at this masterpiece. I also remember being anxious for it to hit home video--and back then, flicks took a looong time to get to video--and the day it came out, I went to K-Mart straight after school, spent some big bucks for the VHS (over twenty, I'm sure), then biked home in the rain so I could watch it. It was totally worth that brutal and soaked-to-the-bone bike ride.

This is a serious Bat-flick, both in tone and scope. Brought to life by the same team that managed Batman: The Animated Series-Bruce Timm and Paul Dini-I'm pretty sure this was the first animated superhero movie to ever hit the big screen. This was also at a time when animated superhero movies never happened. There were only half-hour shows---twenty-two minutes, technically-and that was it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Batman mask of the phantasm best movie of batsy ! Nov. 25 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We don't have the movie in region 2 except in UK. The DVD is wonderful.Very good picture and colors. But the wrong thing about it : there's no bonus features except the trailer. You have the choice between the Widescreen or fullscreen version !
I have only one thing to say : little price and good surprise (The Riddler would'nt tell better !).
Buy this item ! It's the best movie and certainly the best adaptation of the character created by Bob Kane !

Format:DVD
The animated Batman series of the '90s was an excellent series, and this movie makes for a great companion piece. Judging by the format of this movie, it wouldn't have been possible for the animated series to tell this story for two reasons. First, the violence in this story was too extreme for the TV show - Batman bleeds fairly often, and people are actually MURDERED. I was a HUGE fan of the show when I was a kid, and I loved this movie, but back then I was really surprised by the degree of violence in it. I had expected it to be as tame as the TV show. Regardless, the violence in this movie isn't anything that kids aren't exposed to on a daily basis. But it is rated PG for a reason, and 'parental guidance' means that parents should watch this movie with their younger children the first time they see it - just in case the parent needs to explain and/or clarify some of the events in this film to their kids. Second, even if the violence was toned down, this storyline couldn't properly be told if it was simply divided into three episodes for the TV series. The typical episode of the TV series wouldn't be able to handle all the flashback sequences - the TV series was more interested in fast-paced storylines. And the flashback sequences REALLY slow down the pace of this movie. But am I complaining? Of course not. The quality of this movie would suffer greatly without all those slow-paced flashback sequences. So it was necessary that an animated movie tell this story.
Shirley Walker's brooding background music is perfect for this movie - she outclasses every other composer who ever worked on a Batman film. During the opening credits, Walker's title theme is powerful as we see a red sky over a darkened Gotham City, and pass by the towering and foreboding skyscrapers.

Many people have seen Batman: the animated series. Well, this movie lives up to that shows potential! Over 3 times as long as the shows length, this gives more time for storytelling and action. What makes this movie great, is the way it tells Bruce Wayne's story about his love for a girl in flashbacks, while connecting that story to the present. A mysterious phantasm is in Gotham city killing off mob bosses. The more Batman investigates, the more he realizes that all the deaths are connected. This movie has great stuff of the origin of the batman suit, as well as Joker's presence in the mob. My non-liking-cartoon family watched this film, and loved it. I highly recommend buying this film. I bought it new for under $10.00 Great buy!!!!1
