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!)
Enjoy

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.

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!

If you call yourself a fan of the Batman universe, and yet haven't seen this film then you should hang your head in shame, as this really is the definitive Batman film. Some critics, and fans, have gone as far to say it is the best Batman film ever, which if you look at some of the competition,(Batman 1989, The Dark Knight) then that is no small feat by itself. Although it was commercially unsuccessful, over the years it has gained notoriety, critical acclaim and almost a mass following, elevating the film to cult status.
The film is based upon the 90's animated series, which was religious viewing on a Saturday morning. The film begins with the murder of one of Gotham's local Mafia hoods, at the hands of a new villain (The Phantasm), who bares a somewhat slight resemblance to Batman (in that the villain is masked and has a cape). Batman being blamed for this and subsequent murders has to evade police capture, all whilst trying to uncover the truth about his new rival. Although the film isn't a origins story as such, there are are many interesting flash backs to Bruce Wayne's past as he agonises over a decision to abandon his potential life of crime fighting in return for his first true love. The flashbacks are interesting to see as they add a little more history and depth to this already mystifying character. They link also help to link the history/connection between The Batman, The Phantasm and even The Joker! Needless to say when Batman finally unmasks The Phantasm, at the film's finale, things will never be the same again!
Everything within this film, from the animation, to the music, voice acting are on top form. In terms of brilliance I would put this film hand-in-hand with The Dark Knight as the ultimate screen adaptations of The Batman.
