5.0 out of 5 stars Shocked no one has reviewed this yet! 15 Jun 2005
By A Customer
As the best of the batman movies to be released during the late 90's (on a par with Batman) it's amazing this movie slipped so far from public viewing. Mask of the Phantasm was the first movie to be released as a spin off from the hugely successful Batman the animated series (which in itself was the best kids cartoon possibly ever released and defiantly the best of its time)
As there is no Amazon review I'll just give a quick synopsis, the gangsters of Gotham are being killed of by a terminator meets grim reaper character and its up to batman to bring this vigilante to justice but while all this is happening Bruce Wayne has one more shot with the one who got away and once more he must decide can he sacrifice all he desires to remain as the caped crusader.
For those who have not seen any of the series let me just say that the animation is top notch and the voice talents absolutely superb, Mark Hammils rendition of the Joker almost ranks in memrobility beside his performance as Luke Skywalker.
This is a seriously good film and for once the cliché as much for the adult as the child holds true. One little note while personally I would find no problem with a child viewing this movie some would probably disagree so if showing it to a young child maybe a parent should give it a watch first (if nothing else it will let you enjoy it a second time with the kids!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily on a par with the live action films 10 April 2006
Everyone loved the Batman animated series of the early nineties. There was no mystery as to why it was such a huge success. It consisted of nothing but pure quality. The character of the Batman and his universe was transferred perfectly from comic to TV, so it was no surprise that a movie would follow.
Given the fact that Batman Begins had just come out in the cinemas last June, it seemed only logical for Mask of the Phantasm to be released on DVD (at last!) round about the same time. Because, really, this can be interpreted as the animated version of Batman Begins (even though this was released twelve years prior!), as the Dark Knight's origin is explored in great capacity, as he has to deal with one of the most enigmatic and perverse foes he has ever faced: The Phantasm.
Batman is framed for the murders of Gotham's most dangerous gangsters. As the Caped Crusader has to unravel the mystery of the Phantasm's identity and motives, he must also have to confront his past and along the way, we discover how Batman almost never came to be because of Bruce Wayne's one and only chance to be happy.
There's so much going on in this film and there's so much depth to the plot. The mystique and aura of the Phantasm is what drives the film, but there's also a lot of creative insight regarding the past of Bruce Wayne. The exploration of who he was on his road to becoming Batman brings the film a lot of merit, along with the introduction of Andrea Beaumont, who unlike Batman's on-off relationships with Catwoman and Talia, was perhaps his only genuine shot at happiness.
Another positive boom is the inclusion of the Joker in this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars The dark knight as he should be portrayed 25 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I have always loved the animated series but have found it in some cases too child orientated. Now at last we have the batman how he is meant to be portrayed, something I have only ever known Tim Burton to do on screen! A film noir atmosphere, gothic design concept, a tragic romantic sub-plot this movie has it all. Gangsters, guns, gadgets intrigue and mystery. Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamil are on top form as usual and Shirley Walker's musical score should have even Danny Elfman muttering with jealousy. In short a must have for any self respecting batman fan!

4.0 out of 5 stars Everything In Its Right Place 9 Aug 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Every morning i get up and catch Batman the Animated Series before heading off to work.
And every morning one fact is impressed on me again and again.
Kevin Conroy IS the Batman.
And OK, pitch-perfect voice work is usually only part of what makes a great cartoon, but lets do the list.
Stunning visuals?
Smooth, realistic animation?
Gripping storylines?
Intelligent, witty scripting?
Oh yeah.
It isn't too far of a leap to make the claim that B:TAS is just about as good as cartoons get, and watching them you can almost forget the deluge of dross that Schumacher brought to the screen.
Indeed Mask of the Phantasm should be regarded as Batman three, so in keeping is it with the tone of Burton's Comic Noir vision.
And while it provides a half hour slice of action and adventure for kids (not since Transformers have they had it so good), B:TAS never loses sight of the fact that the majority of Batfans haven't watched cartoons before school for the best part of a decade at least. Like the best of Disney, it caters for all age groups.
So we wait, and we hope that B & R didn't kill the franchise, but while we wait we can console ourselves with the fact that, on the small screen at least, the Batman lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 27 July 2007
Everything about this is just superb. I have a U.S version and one of the reviews on the back says "Gotham's saviour; the way he was meant to be", I couldn't agree more. This is an atmospheric piece of cinema-noir, the music is beautifully written and the animation is perfect. The cast deliver top-flight voice performances, Mark Hamill as the Joker really stands out.

The story is powerfully told using the classic neo-Gothic setting of Gotham City, that we all know and love. It is written with care and intelligence and has everything a good Batman story should have, plus a lot more. The tragi-romantic edge is superb and is genuinely moving the first time you see it.

Don't be fooled by the fact that this is a cartoon; kids wouldn't understand the permeatations and the meanings in "Mask of the Phantasm" and also it has a couple of moments that younger kids may find scarey

A true classic, a triumph in every sense, even if your not a Bat-fan you will admire this as a piece of art. - the Dark Knight: as he was supposed to be.
