Batman: Under the Red Hood

Batman: Under the Red Hood

I am a huge fan of the DC Comics movies – while Marvel’s animated features suffer from bad acting and bad animation, Warner Bros. has always been smart enough to enlist the best for the cartoons. Batman: Under the Red Hood is no exception. The animation is tight, the script is well thought out, and best of all Bruce Timm is producing it.

Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about the film:

Loosely based on the Batman story arc “Under the Hood”, the story follows Batman and Dick Grayson – the original Boy Wonder now hero Nightwing – finding themselves being stalked by a mysterious yet familiar figure known as the vigilante Red Hood, who tries to rid Gotham City’s crimes without following the same ethics as its heroes and apparently knows all of their secrets. As the Dark Knight tries to unravel the true identity of his stalker, he must also battle three of his enemies: the Joker, the criminally insane Clown Prince of Crime who first wore the Red Hood cowl and was responsible for the murder of Batman’s second protégé Jason Todd; Ra’s al Ghul, the immortal international terrorist who is somehow connected to the Red Hood; and Black Mask, the notorious kingpin who is launching a campaign to take over all of Gotham City’s criminal underworld. When the Joker becomes involved in the conflict between Batman and the Red Hood, hard truths are revealed and old wounds reopened.
