Product Description

Collection of animations following the caped crusader. In 'Mystery of the Batwoman' (2003) Batman (voice of Kevin Conroy) is on the attack, targeting his arch enemy, the Penguin (David Ogden Stiers), and his criminal cohort, Rupert Thorn (John Vernon), who are plotting a scheme to sell illegal weapons. New vigilante in town Batwoman (Kyra Sedgwick) has more daring methods for saving the day, which may only create more problems for Batman. In 'Mask of the Phantasm' (1993) an unknown assailant is ridding Gotham City of its gangsters but Batman finds himself blamed for their homicidal ways. Meanwhile, his nemesis, the Joker (Mark Hamill), is keen to bring the mysterious figure down and Batman's former flame, Andrea Beaumont (Dana Delany), arrives in town. In 'Under the Red Hood' (2010) a masked figure, known only as Red Hood (Jensen Ackles), has taken it upon himself to clean up Gotham City but his methods are brutal. Batman (Bruce Greenwood) soon realises he may know Red Hood's real identity and when the Joker (John Di Maggio) gets involved the situation becomes even more complicated. 'Gotham Knight' (2008), set between 'Batman Begins' (2005) and 'The Dark Knight' (2008), comprises six chronological stories charting Batman (Conroy)'s progression from gifted amateur to fully-fledged crime-avenger. 'Have I Got a Story for You' tells how a group of kids are variously affected by their encounters with Batman. In 'Crossfire', Gotham City's police force are forced to conquer their distrust of the Dark Knight when they come under fire from the mob. 'Field Test' focuses on the vast array of weaponry and gadgets at Batman's disposal as he fights injustice, while 'In Darkness Dwells' has the caped-crusader locking horns with the sewer-dwelling 'Killer Croc' and 'The Scarecrow' (Corey Burton). 'Working Through Pain' explores Bruce Wayne's gruelling training regime, instigated by a mysterious Indian woman named Cassandra (Parminder Nagra), while the final segment, 'Deadshot', draws the chapters to a conclusion, with Batman having to stop a ruthlessly efficient assassin with few moral qualms. In 'Year One' (2011) Batman (Benjamin McKenzie) returns to Gotham City after spending years away training on foreign territory. Meanwhile, honest policeman Jim Gordon (Bryan Cranston) has arrived in town after being transferred from Chicago. He is sent to track Batman down but with their shared interest in ridding Gotham of its corrupt cops and criminals, the two form an unlikely alliance.

This boxset (yet to be released at the time of writing) compiles 5 of DC's animated Batman from over the years. For the sake of this review I will give each film a short review and then an overview of the set.

Mystery of the Batwoman: Easily the weakest film in the set, "Batwoman" is set in DC's legendary animated universe (Comprised of Batman, Superman, Batman Beyond, The Zeta Project, Static Shock, Justice League and Justice League Unlimited plus a handful of Batman movies, more on those later) doesn't live up to the heights set but it's forebears but it's pretty decent, good for kids. 3/5

Mask of the Phantasm: Another entry in the DCAU and probably the best film of the set. A mysterious killer is eliminating mob bosses and framing Batman while Bruce must confront a long lost piece of his past. Add in Mark Hamill as Joker (also in the Arkham games) and you have a great animated movie with a beautiful art-deco style, a good plot full of tension and twists and you have the only Bat-movie that could possibly rival The Dark Knight. 5/5

Under the Red Hood: A stand-alone movie based on Judd Winick's "Under the Hood" this emotional and dark tale shows a miserable and lonely Batman confront a mysterious figure from his past. The reveal is obvious but this is about the journey, not the destination, at what a journey it is... 5/5

Gotham Knight: Set between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight this anthology of 6 anime shorts that form an overreaching arc that bridges the gap between the two Nolon films. Conroy returns to voice Batman filling in for Christian Bale from the Nolan films. Not bad but pretty forgettable. It's saving grace is the fantastic animation that varies in all 6 films.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good set of films! 16 Jun 2012
Mystery of the Batwoman is a film based on the 1990s animated series, and had a good, engaging storyline. A new heroine appears on the scene; a woman posing as Batwoman, whom he does not recognise. Amidst this, there is a subplot involving the Penguin, Rupert Thorne and Bane. While the plot involving these villains is a fairly solid story in itself, it only goes towards providing a backdrop for the true story - the identity of the Batwoman - to play out in. Overall, a very good story, with some impressive animation shots and a fairly interesting set of characters. 7/10
(In addition, the Mystery of the Batwoman DVD comes with a short film called "Chase Me", which features Batman chasing Catwoman across Gotham. While there is no speech in this film (apart from maybe a few words at the beginning and end), the entire thing is set to music, which works fantastically.)

Mask of the Phantasm is the earliest film in this set, and is also based on the 1990s animated series. It features a new villain, known only as the Phantasm, who seems to act as a vengeful vigilante, killing various gangsters across Gotham. Of course, Batman must work out the identity and then stop the killer. Alongside this story, two other tales are told. The first explores Bruce Wayne's earlier life, and reveals how this version of Batman almost didn't become Batman. The other plot of the film explores some of the origin of the Joker, and we find out what sort of person the animated series' version of the character was before he became the Prince of Crime. In general, an extremely solid film, clearly written to be a feature-length version of the critically acclaimed cartoon series. In this, it is extremely successful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fan's Review 8 Aug 2012
First off, I'd like to say how glad I am that this box set is available; if you have just started getting into Batman animation then this is a SUPERB starter pack! I have been collecting Batman animation for a few years now and I was delighted to buy this collection; if nothing else, to compact my DVD collection and shave up some space on the shelves. All of the discs (bar one) contain the same extras as the solo DVDs.
For the fans - If I could change anything about this box set it would be to take `Batman Under the Red Hood' (which I should explain, is my favourite of all the batman animation films) and swap it for `Batman and Mr Freeze (Subzero)' as I think it would be a better fit with the rest of the films in this collection. `Batman Under the Red Hood' should have been saved for a collection with `Superman / Shazam! (The Return of Black Adam)' and perhaps (??) `Superman Batman Public Enemies' and `Superman Batman Apocalypse'. This, I think, would have made much more sense. Also the `Under the Red Hood' DVD [link below] that I already own comes as a two disc set. Disc one contains an exclusive short `Jonah Hex'; which I utterly adore. Disc two has both, `Robin: The Story of Dick Grayson' and `Bruce Timm Presents 2 Batman animated Series Episodes'; this is too much to lose in my opinion.
So, it would seem that I have not actually shaved as much space off my DVD shelves as I'd like and in fact, now I have a duplicate which drives my OCD into a twine, wound so tight both my shoulder blades feel like they are touching at the back!! Not to worry...perfection is sometimes better in the wanting, wishing and imaginary designing - yeah, whatever!!
