Review of Batman: Gotham Knight

Batman: Gotham Knight is a 2008 animated direct-to-DVD anthology film of six animated short films set in-between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. The shorts, or segments, are written by Josh Olson, David Goyer, Brian Azzarello, Greg Rucka, Jordan Goldberg and Alan Burnett. Each segment has its own writing and artistic style, just as the works from the DC Universe. The six films all star Kevin Conroy, reprising his role as Batman from the DC Animated Universe.

The Good
– Each story in this movie has an unique style of animation and writing
– The last story Deadshot really brings you back to the old Batman TAS
-The different design of the Scarecrow was much better in this than in Batman Begins
– Kevin Conroy returning as the voice was sweet

The Bad
-The stories are way to short lasting each one just over ten minutes.
-Killer Croc who was rumored to appear is only in it for 30 sec. after Batman hits him he runs away and you never see him again
– The first story is stupid didn’t have to be there and is a total rip off of an episode of Batman TAS

Score I give this a 8 bat signals/10
I feel fans of old and fans of new will appreciate this movie
