Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
The movie looks great, with a moody use of shadows and darkness and dreary, lowdown locations.
| Original Score: 3/5
A stale adaptation of the classic Frank Miller comic. The film drowns in bad voice work and lacks the visual nuances found in the original story.
| Original Score: 4/10
Not just Batman's tale, but it's also Commissioner Gordon's tale...
| Original Score: 3/4
For a story constructed out of choppy slices, this is probably the most unified of the DC animated features.
Batman: Year One adapts Frank Miller's tale with excellent animation and first-rate voice work from a talented cast, finding a nice balance between human moments and exciting action sequences.
The graphic novel, as they say, is always better but this animated adaptation of the 1980s comic isn't half bad . . .
Marital infidelity, child prostitution and civic corruption are bluntly (although tastefully) displayed - it just so happens that there's also a guy zipping around town in a bat suit.
