A Terrible Interpretation of Batman Posted by: from: Orange County, CA on Whether you are an anime fan or a Batman fan, or both, as I am, you will be left dissapointed. I guess Gotham Knight is supposed to be the Japanese "interpretation" of Batman. Nothing wrong with that, except I think they missed out on what makes Batman such as awesome character. There was no character development, and suprisingly, very little action. In the series of short stories, Batman is portrayed as a demon, a detective, a vigilante, but there was no cohesiveness. It would have been much better if it were written by American writers, and stuck with a traditional movie format instead of the short stories. As for the art, it was better than the boxy animated series seen on television, but Bruce Wayne looked like a kid, while Batman didn't look like the cool traditional Batman we are used to. Furthermore, you never see any of the great Batman villians, except the Scarecrow for maybe 2 minutes. Overall, I was extremely dissapointed with this "film." I think I may have sworn off WB Comic-based animated movies.

Bridging A Saga Posted by: from: South Plainfield, NJ on The six stories that make up Gotham Knight range from excellent to ho-hum. Being able to see some of the events that take place inbetween Batman Begins and The Dark Knight was interesting and great. These six directors bring their own touch to the Batman legend while staying faithful to Christopher Nolan's, as well as the comic book version of the Batman. This is a must for any true fan of Batman and/or fans of Nolan's Batman films. It isn't as great as say Batman: The Animated Series from the 90's, but its a great addition to any dvd/batman collection. You'll have a blast learning more of the story.

Overall a great flick Posted by: from: on Bought this right away and I'm very pleased with what I got. I am both a Batman and anime fan so this was a great combo. Overall I enjoyed the story and I liked how different animators portrayed the Batman and the city. I wish there had been more of the villains in the story but it was focused more on Batman's personal struggles. I was tickled when I found out Kevin Conroy was voicing Bruce Wayne/Batman again, in my opinion he has the perfect voice for it.

Great Purchase Posted by: from: Jacksonville, Fl on This is a must have for any Batman fans, or even for those who are not. This movie takes place after Batman Begins and leads into The Dark Knight. If you own a Blu-Ray dvd player , than this is the one dvd to own for all it's special features. One of the best special features was the bio on Batman creator Bob Kane. I've Been a comic collector for over 30 years and never actually knew about Bob Kane. He was and still is Truly a remarkable and brilliant man.

Just a rental Posted by: from: mankato, MN on This movie was way over hyped as a bridge between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. While there are some of the same characters and it helps to establish Batman as Gotham's hero, it really doesn't have much of any direct ties to the movies. As much as I love Kevin Conroy's Batman from the animated series, I also thought he was miscast in this movie. The different art style and universe it's set in just feel like they should've gone with someone else.

Batman Hater Loves DVD Posted by: from: on I am not a Batman fan. I think he's probably the worst superhero, so I was really skeptical about watching this movie. However, I really, really liked it, which really surprised me. Some of the shorts are really awesome, specifically Deadshot and Crossfire, but others are kind of boring, like A Field Test. I would definitely recommend watching this movie, even if you're not a Batman fan. It really makes me want to see the Dark Knight in theaters now!

Awesome Posted by: from: on I am a Batman fan in movies and animation. This movie is in the animatrix genre if anyone has seen the animatrix is pretty good. The animatrix fills in stories where the movies leaves out. The Gotham Knight does the same to a certain extent. The six stories dwells deeper into the Dark Knights Personality and shines a little light into his story and history. Good Animation and story lines. I love it, cant wait for the movie to come out this summer.

Batman: Gotham Kight Posted by: from: Phoenix, AZ on Hello. First off I want to say I'm a 38 year old Batman fan since I was 6 years old, this includes the 60's TV reruns and comics. I have simply loved Bruce Timm's reinvigoration of Batman in Batman The Animated Series as well as Batman Beyond, and Justice League from the early 90's to 2004, needless to say I do have a passion. This latest edition to the Batman lineage simply falls short of the mark and in plain speak is a cash in on the upcoming movie. When I first found out of a new Batman animated movie in the vain of Superman Doomsday, (which is excellent) I was salivating with anticipation. Upon Buying this DVD and viewing today my inner adult ever so wanting to look on with once child like eyes turned from admiration to horror within the first 30 minutes (the main dvd run time is 76 minutes). The story is for the most part and in loose terms is a rip off of Legends of the Dark Knight from Batman the Animated Series (and for some unusual reason is included on the 2 disk version). The Pros as stated include the simply beautiful animation, this is by far is 1 of the only 2 main reasons to buy this DVD, the other being Batman purists wanting completion to their collection. The deadshot story is by far the most concise within the 6 individual parts giving a beginning to end sense of excitement. Lastly, Kevin Conroy is energetic as always, no matter who plays Batman in any future animated series, Kevin will always be unprecedented and unequaled. The cons are Bruce Timm simply banking a check for this nightmare, I have to BELIEVE that other than signing off on producing this film HE had no involvement in final production. The stories are a complete mishmash sophomoric outlet, a first chance writers disaster in the making. If you do purchase the 2 disk version as I have, The REAL payoff is the 38 minute documentary on Bob Kane the creator of Batman. The seldom seen Kane can be viewed in all his glory in a tong and cheek homage to the movie Citizen Kane. (oddly as I write this the San Francisco chronicle / Chicago tribune and Ney York Times cut jobs today, progress in called the Internet my friends) Please heed this review... If your a fan, hey pick it up.. you will no matter what I type. For those wanting to enhance the July 18th experience.. you will HATE this. Spend your money on valuable GAS to the theater instead.
