Under the Red Hood is the latest animated feature-length Batman instalment based on the stories Under the Hood & Death in the Family. When a stranger sporting a costume reminiscent of the Joker's Red-Hood shows up in Gotham and starts picking off drug-lords, Batman is forced to reconcile a chapter from his past he thought was truly laid to rest. Not content with merely killing the bad-guys and stealing their business, this new Red-Hood has a plan that involves Batman & The Joker more than they both know...

Fantastically animated and brilliantly voiced this story really has a great plot, Red-Hood is a truly formidable opponent for the Detective with gadgets and skills to rival the man himself. A few classic characters rear their head for decent cameos (The Black Mask, Nightwing & The Riddler amongst others). Batman is well voice by Bruce Greenwood, steering well clear of the 'Bale gruffness' and Neil Patrick Harris plays a brilliant rendition of Nightwing.

John Dimaggio (Bender from Futurama) give an excellent performance as the Joker, but really can't hold a candle to Mark Hamil, that's not to say he isn't good, but in my opinion Mark Hamil's voice IS the Joker's voice. There is plenty of the usual Batman antics here, grapple-gun swinging and batarang throwing and the fight-scenes are slick & well choreographed, fans will not be disappointed.

Saw this last night and I have to be honest when I say that I was slightly worried that they'd mess this up... How wrong was I!

This movie rocked and it's in the same tone as all other good Batman material - dark, brooding and at the centre is a solid story. I'm a big fan of Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill, but the folks in the movie nailed the voices which in my opinion is a big thing.

Make no mistake, this is not one for the kids, but as a grown man (yes I'll unashamedly admit to it!) this is definately intended for the older teens/adult audience.

Good script, excellent action, no soppy love interests storylines and good characters - overall, an excellent movie that should be added to any true batfan dvd collection. My only gripe is that I wish it was a bit longer... maybe this is something DC/Warner should consider for future projects.

DC is at it again. this time with the batman who is on the quest to search and take down the obnoxious figure known as the red hood who has become somewhat of a pain to the gotham drug lords.
Great animation with a brilliant and dark storyline to keep you glued. as usual with other DC animations, there are no single boring moments.However, the only problem i had with this wonderful masterpiece is the absence of mark hamil as the joker.(trust me you will miss him!)
Oh! and parents who want to buy this for their kids should be warned.for the fact that this is a super hero animation,there are some extremely brutal scenes.

Add this to your DC collection!

Format: DVD
Another animated movie from DC comics animation that turns a storyline from one of their comics into a film.

In this case Batman: Under the Hood which saw Batman facing an old adversary. With someone new under their mask.

The film runs for seventy two minutes.

And although it's a Batman cartoon it's a twelve certificate dvd, because it is rather dark and violent at points. So it's really not suitable for the very young.

[The only ones likely to read this are those who already know the story. But just in case....]

It starts with a pre credit sequence showing Robin [the second Robin, Jason Todd, who took on the role when Dick Grayson grew up and became the superhero Nightwing] at the mercy of the Joker. Batman's desperate efforts to reach him in time are too late. His sidekick dies. There's backstory to this scene that is filled in later in the movie, so those who don't know the comic shouldn't feel too confused.

Five years later: There's a new player in Gotham. Sadistic gang boss Black Mask is now running the underworld. But he faces compettion from the Red Hood. A man in a mask. Ruthless and very good at fighting. Naturally he crosses swords with the Batman. Who finds him strangely familiar. Red Hood is taking the war to crime. Going to the places where Batman won't and using the methods he won't. But might his approach be better?

And what might happen should the Joker get involved?
