  • In short, throw your money at this one; the team behind it cared enough to make it worth your time.

  • While Batman: Assault on Arkham takes the opportunity to cast Batman villains in lead roles, it doesn't come close to exploring all the potential those characters offer.

  • It's worth taking the dark, twisted ride.

  • Cynical and violent superhero tale has some cursing.

  • I enjoyed "Assault on Arkham" mainly because of its sleek and simple storytelling and ode to "The Dirty Dozen."

  • Their [Suicide Squad] fun interactions and clashing character dynamics keep the energy levels high so you won't even notice that Batman's appearances are being saved only for special occasions.

    This movie is a classic animated feature. If this movie could be re create by the DCEU it would be a classic and would redefine the DCEU streak. Currently DC has not been on a good run and they should look back on this film and readjust their films.

    One of if not the best DC animation film to date, It's More mature and had a great story, The title is sort of misleading as it's mostly about The Suicide Squad and Batman takes up the supporting role, But it serves as a prequel to the Arkham Asylum game, As we're on the subject of Suicide Squad my review for this was written after The Suicide Squad movie and even though I enjoyed that movie this story would of been way better but then again people would only moan it's copied this film, Anyway this film is great fun, Action packed maybe younger kids shouldn't watch as there's some swearing, Blood, Nudity, Full of allot of famous Characters it's a must watch for any fan of Batman in any way.

    Not bad but far from an impressive suicide squad film. The story only comes to life once the joker enters.

    This is a great and fun animated flick. If only Warner Bros took this film and tweaked it a little bit as a guide for the live action Suicide Squad it would've been so much better than what they released this year. Plus it could've served as a great vehicle to lead in to the solo Batman movie and to remind audiences how truly amazing Batman's rogues gallery is.
