An ancient evil has come to Gotham. Is even Gotham's protector the Dark Knight any match or the real Dark King, who has every physical advantage as well as the mental edge in savagery. With all the people going missing (known as the list ones), Gotham turns on the Batman blaming his or the whole mess. However the Batman has more important things to do than clearing his name, like surviving.
This is a great movie if you are a fan of either the Batman or Dracula. Even though The Batman cartoon series is aimed at kids, but the movie entertaining an appealing to older views like me.
The combination of Dracula and the Dark Knight may seem a slightly odd one, but it's not too strange, really. Consider, the appeal of both vampires and Batman is in their dark natures, and their dual existences. Both Dracula and Batman have respectable public personas, and both have a darker (and, for that matter, nocturnal) hidden side to their characters. They also both, uh, turn into bats - a point this feature makes more times than is really needed, but there you go.
The story involves, along with Bats and Dracula, reporter Vicki Vale, the Joker, and the Penguin. The Joker in this new series is quite good fun, but the character was perfected in the old series, and while the voice of Kevin Michael Richardson is good, it can't beat Mark Hamill, whose sinister coo and laugh evoked both humour and horror. The Penguin is done well, more extreme than in the old series, where his character was the only villain I found a little dull and disappointing. Here he is - in appearance - more like the "Long Halloween" Penguin: uncommonly short and with fangs. He's also the funniest character in the movie. Rino Romano is fine as Wayne/Batman, although, again, he stands in the shadow of Kevin Conroy, who voiced the character in the old series. The only relatively well-known actor whose voice is used is Peter Stormare ("Fargo," "Minority Report") as Dracula, who does a very good job, even though I am more used to seeing him playing nutjobs.Read more ›
This is a well-made film, full of action and excitement. It's perfect for children aged 6+ (as well as grown-up fans). While "The Batman" isn't my favourite incarnation of the Dark Knight (I much prefer 'B:TAS'), this is nonetheless a very good movie.
Note: I recommend taking care when ordering - as I received a region 1 DVD.
The story is fairly basic; Dracula is resurrected in Gotham and, as it seems unlikely that there are two men synonymous with bats, Batman gets blamed for the lost and murdered citizens.
It's hard to imagine the demographic this film was aiming for. It's a bit grisly and unpleasant for kids but the plot line is too simplistic for adults. It falls between two stalls.
There are appearances from both the Joker and Penguin, and Albert's dry humour is, as ever, very welcome. The animation shows some nice touches and the music is atmospheric, it's just a bit lacking in substance.
if your reading before watching Batman Vs Dracula don't watch it, go watch one of the other batman cartoons that are on here then a different one don't bother with this one till all over options are seen first (im assuming your a Prime user)

I must say this is a gem of a DVD. At first was not sure however a good story putting two creatures of the night against each other. Loved itPublished 10 months ago by Robert H.
This was simply great, but what really stood out for me was the backdrop that the animation was shot against - the cityscapes looked super cool and great use of colour. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Oscar Wilde
