Format: DVD
It is documented fact that the epitome of Batman animation, from an overall standpoint, is, was and forever will be Batman: The Animated Series. With such acclaimed writing, pioneering, great animation, quality music-score, unmatched voice work and overall cinematic presentation, it defined exactly what a superhero cartoon should be.

And then came various animated Batman films, The New Batman Adventures, Superman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond, Justice League and the godlike Justice League Unlimited, altogether making the Animated DC Universe, which is overall a thing of greatness. But like all greatness, it has to end sometime. So what do you do after that? Go into other areas.

And this, Batman: Gotham Knight, is one of them. Since Justice League Unlimited (and the whole Animated DC Universe) sadly came to its end back in 2006, Warner Bros. have done series like The Batman, films like Superman: Doomsday and various other direct-to-video releases with no continuity linking them together or anything else.

Gotham Knight is the latest original project from Warner Bros. and also does something a little bit different from before. Basically this is a collection of six short films, all produced by different, independent Japanese Manga studios. The premise of the films is that they take place in-between Batman Begins and its sequel The Dark Knight. While no major events happen, the stories are separate, very enjoyable one-offs with a continuity that nicely links them all together.

Right away, the whole thing screams `Animatrix', and like The Animatrix, it gets a lot of stuff right. First of all, is the fact that they've brought in Kevin Conroy to reprise his role as THE voice of Batman. And it's as though nothing's changed at all.

This was an absolutely brilliant experience. I'm not a big fan of japanese animation, but I must say, it was a good addition to setting the mood for the atmosphere set by the writers.

After some of the poor attempts such as "the batman" series, this DVD brought Batman animation back to high standards. I would rate this as being as good as the Batman TAS. Watching this made me proud of being a big fan of the dark knight and gives me hope that "The Dark Knight" movie will be nothing short of spectacular.

Keep up the good work DC, this is the way Batman is meant to be!

Format: DVD
As a big fan of both Batman and Japanese animation I have been looking forward to this DVD for awhile now and thankfully it more than lived up to my expectations. The film consists of six interlocking stories that see Batman face off against both regular gangsters as well as villains from his rouges gallery such as Scarecrow, Killer Croc and Deadshot.

Each of the stories is directed and animated by different people and in slightly different styles which could be somewhat disconcerting to some but they all still fit within the overall Batman style. However, out of the six chapters I feel it is the first that leaves the most to be desired, animation wise, but other than that the animation is very good. The voice acting is also somewhat off in a couple of the chapters but is generally respectable.

This DVD has been compared to the Animatrix shorts that accompanied the Matrix trilogy in that it fits in between the Batman Begins and The Dark Knight and while I am not sure how much of the action here will make it into the Batman films, I do feel that any and all is good enough to be used. Any Batman fan should consider this a must watch and it would also be of interest to fans of anime as well.

Format: Blu-ray
Gotham Knight consists of six short films rather than one single feature. Although there are links between some of the films, there is no dominant story-arc so can be enjoyed as individual pieces of storytelling.

For those unsure about animated films, the opening scene shows a detailed, night time Gotham, it looks sumptuous and has an almost photographic realism which establishes that this to be taken seriously. The artwork overall has a very Japanese anime/manga feel to it, the main exceptions being "Crossfire" which looks more mainstream, and the first short "Have I got a story for you" which has a fantastic grungy appearance to it which matches the context of the story perfectly. Although many find this first short to be one of the weaker stories, it is my personal favourite and explores the public perception of Batman from the perspective of a group of youths who happen to have stumbled across him recently. Their recollection stretches the truth and crosses the line between actual fact and imagination - it's a great introduction which cements the Batman as part man and part legend.

Although these exist within their own universe, the influence and tie-in to Chris Nolan's recent Batman films is evident, one of the shorts (Field Test) looks visually inspired by the film with Morgan Freeman and Christian Bale's likeness captured well as Lucius Fox and Bruce Wayne. Such similarities with those films and the often violent nature of this set of stories makes it clear that this is aimed at a more mature audience and isn't the sort of film to be shown on Saturday morning Kid's TV. This is a pretty grim depiction of Gotham and its inhabitants, we even see a walled off 'prison city' which makes Arkham Asylum look like Butlins.
