This version really does the film justice, it's aimed at older/teenage audiences, the youngsters should stick to the tame and cut version because it's less frightening.
Here is some things which had to be taken out and replaced with alternative scenes such as the Joker shooting one of his henchmen with a dart gun rather than laughing gas.
The Batcave walls are spray painted red instead of purple, an extended look at Robin's transformation in the flashback, the Joker referring to Bruce Wayne as a "bat fart" instead of "bat coot", the camera sprinning 360 degrees when Batman fights the Jokerz gang and applying more uppercuts to different henchmen.
The film gets a widescreen presentation and has a 5.1 surround soundtrack to offer you the ultimate Batman animated movie experience, all in all it's well worth the money, just try and avoid the edited version because if you do, you'll be missing out and throwing good money away!
Don't miss out on this fantastic DVD filled with some excellent special features such as making of and interviews with the cast!
I reccommend this to all Batman fans old and new, heed the calling and purchase this film today!
The major flaw I could see with the '02 version is that it is in 1.78 letterbox format. It still has a DD5.1 soundtrack. (The 2000 release was censored and had 1.33 full-frame).
Is this the "ultimate" release in anamorphic picture format? DTS soundtrack (wish...) Cheers for any ideas.
