OK, so having Kevin Conroy voice the bat was a much appreciated move. Quite simply the best voice artist Batman ever.
But BTAS this 'aint. Stylistically and quality wise the old Batman The Animated Series was streets ahead of this interesting, yet faintly disappointing tie in with The Dark Knight. Sort of an "Animatrix" deal, 6 linked but different stories. The animation was patchy in both style and quality and while there are some lovely touches here and there, it never drew me in like BTAS and it's later related shows. Even Batman Beyond was more interesting and consistent. And there's your problem. It's 6 snapshot views by different writers and directors, not all of whom were perhaps well versed in Batman lore, otherwise we'd not have seen a revamp of the hoary old "Batman as described half a dozen ways by a buncha kids" story. This was actually handled pretty well and the animation was amongst the best of this collection, but original...nah. (Or maybe it was a deliberate homage to those older comic stories that I've seen at least a couple of times over the years, who knows?) The previous animated version of this trope, in Batman Beyond I think, was again streets ahead of this and the inclusion there of stuff lifted directly from The Dark Knight Returns, tickled my fanboy heart in a way this modern version failed to largely.
That said, if you are into Batman, even if you are a die hard BTAS purist, you will find something of value here. It's not expensive and it's worth a look. Expanded, some of this has potential, but it's a one off as far as I know. With my expectations suitably lowered, I did enjoy watching this, if only for the distinct pleasure of listening to Kevin Conroy do his thing, but if you are expecting it to live up to BTAS, you'll end up distinctly "meh" :-)
