Being a Batman fan, I jumped at the chance to own this on Blue ray. Like the comic book version, Bruce Wayne’s alter ego confronts a Jack The Ripper type villain in 1900’s Gotham City. The animation could have been a little better. However, a well written plot, and being done in 1:75 aspect ratio, made this a worthy addition to my DC collection.
Gotham By Gaslight Review
Gotham by Gaslight is rated R. This animated Batman films is definitely not for kids and you will know why within the first 5 minutes. The whole movie is made for adults. It is violent and containts sexual conduct. Again it is rated R for a reason. Now since that is out of the way onto the review.
DC animated films rarely disappoint and this is no exception. Gotham by Gaslight is a murder mystery set in an alternate Batman timeline. DC comics fans will know this as an Elseworld comic book. This Batman is trying to hunt down Jack the Ripper in a Victorian era setting.
With a unique art style and some great voice acting it delivers on all fronts. It is unfortunate that Kevin Conroy is not voicing Batman this time around but Bruce Greenwood does a great job.
The story is short but packs a punch as it keeps you guessing until the end. There are some nods to other material that hardcore and casual fans might pick up as well.
This is definitely one of my favorite Batman films and I really have no complaints other then wanting more.
Gotham by Gaslight is available now on Blu Ray and DVD and it gets a 10 from me.
Bought this movie at Best Buy over the holidays. A blind buy and after watching the movie I really liked it. If you have not seen any of these DC movies you need to check them out.
blu ray only
This is one of the better DC Animated Universe movies. The story and the Victorian style are great and it is fun to see how different Batman characters are used in this time frame. That being said, the animation style is really poor even compared to other DC animated movies. The animation in the included bonus episodes of Batman: the Animated Series and Batman: the Brave and the Bold are much more fluid and detailed than the stilted and less defined animation in this movie.
The Blu-ray A/V is good, despite the poor animation. The bonus features are the standard ones for DC animated movies: commentary, making of, bonus cartoons, and previews for other DC animated films. Despite the poor animation, I do recommend this movie!
