Batman Gotham Knight Reviews
First one is "Have I Got a Story for You", initially I was excited to see the Japanese anime style but as the novelty wore off, realized it didn't go well with Batman. As for the story itself its interesting, about kids sharing encounters of batmen and how he looks although the anime makes batmen look lame. (2/5)
Second one is "Crossfire", it had the best anime style which worked for Batmen, awesome action sequence with lots of CGI effects. Story is about a police officers have negative opinion of Batmen and how a first-hand encounters changes the opinion. (4/5)
Third one "Field Test", while I like the anime style hated the Japanese playboy looks of Batmen. The story is probably the best one of the lot, about field testing a new gadget. (3/5)
Fourth one "In Darkness Dwells" got some crazy anime, looks brilliant at the beginning but too much of its no fun, it's like seeing anime when you are high. Also I hated the sketch of Batmen in it, too ugly. The story is about rescuing a kidnapped cardinal from Scarecrow who is based out of underground tunnels of Gotham City. (2/5)
Fifth one is "Working through Pain", while I enjoyed the anime showing the Indian characters and background, Batmen looked too Japanese for my taste. Enjoyed the story about how he learns to survive pain. (3/5)
Sixth one is "Deadshot", got great anime and a great story. Deadshot vs Batmen is actually fun. (4/5)
If so, you probably also remember the series of short animated films set between the two, to bridge the gap, called "The Animatrix".
Well, I think it's a fair bet to say that Warner remembers them, since that's essentially what this is: a collection of animated Batman stories set between "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight".
As it is a collection, some of the stories are better than others, both in plot (there's not a lot of plot, really, you can get into about 20 minutes or so of running time) and animation - if I'm honest, the entry story in this nearly had me turning it off, since I can barely stand the animation style used and (I felt) the plot wasn't much cop either.
Thankfully, some of the later stories are better, even if it is disconcerting seeing the same character (Alfred) animated and portrayed differently in two consecutive tales!

It's last two stories are good, apart from that this film is mostly boring and at times poorly animated. The only sense of purpose and some real good villains can be seen in the last two stories.
