Batman’s foes are some of the most legendary of all time: Joker, Bane, Scarecrow, Riddler, and Mr. Freeze to name a few. Bruce has been the Bat for a while but despite Alfred, Gordon, and his sidekicks, it’s a lonely life. He finds himself falling for Selina Kyle, allegedly reformed Catwoman, and well as vowing to reconnect with his childhood friend and now famous surgeon Thomas Elliot. But things are escalating in Gotham as Batman is lead through a gauntlet of villains interwoven in a unknown plan by a mysterious, bandaged figure named Hush, determined to bring a end to the Dark Knight once and for all.
So I have to this classic was handled really damn well, just about perfect but for a raging flaw. The voice acting is really good and the animation is great. The story features a lot of friends and foes, including a pretty badass fight against a possessed Superman. I love the relationship between Batman and Catwoman and I like the friction Nightwing and Batgirl have towards her; Catwoman’s story arc is one of my favorite parts of the movie. So the flaw I mentioned, what kills the story dead? The twist on Hush’s identity. The book had a great twist, revealing Hush’s identity which screws with Batman on a mental level, which is what I really enjoy about Hush as a villain- he attacks on a intellectual and mental level rather than brute force. The twist is the movie sucks and hurts the value of the story overall. In the end, its a damn good watch but definitely read the book. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
