Batman: Gotham Knight (2008 Film) Review

 As many of you know I'm a big Batman fan. So I've been meaning to catch up on many of the Dark Knight's animated movies. I overlooked Batman: Gotham Knight as it's a collection of six (related) short-stories set between Batman Begins and Dark Knight. They also worked with a Japanese studio to give the animation an anime-inspired look.
 The six mini-films are all part of Bruce Wayne's early struggles to become Gotham's greatest protector except the first. It's a short story about the imagination of four teenagers who describe their eye-witness accounts of Batman. 
 The rest fit between Batman Begins and the Dark Knight. It shows some of Bruce's training to become a better fighter, but also gives more a glimpse of Gotham's darker side. It features two Batman villians, Killer Croc and Deadshot. Both of whom give Batman quite the challenge. 
Overall while I liked the art style, I didn't dig Gotham Knight terribly much. The non-central story doesn't make it very appealing to me. I also thought that only the last story was really excellent. It had some potential but this is far from the best adventure for Batman.

  7. I've always loved Batman more than any superheroes, mainly because of the dark theme. Honestly I appreciate batman more in animation than in live action. I haven't seen this one. But I think I'm going to like it.

    - First, and foremost, this show knows what it is, and it plays into it: The plot's are bad, and contrived; the action is over the top: really, it's your classic superhero romp. Whereas most superhero shows try to take themselves seriously and fail, this show pretends to take itself seriously, and as a result, the viewer can readily disregard the notion of ever needing to think too hard about the plot, and that's exactly what I love about Gotham: it's not a thinking show, it's a fun show: you can sit back, suspend your disbelief, and just have some fun.
