  • 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.

  • DC Entertainment thrills with one of its boldest and mature films yet while finally figuring out the secret to telling engaging and fun adventures of DC Comic characters beyond Batman and the Justice League.

  • The title says "Batman" and his face takes up most of the box art, but this is less an adaptation of the Batman/Arkham video games than a straight-up Suicide Squad movie.

Audience Reviews for Batman: Assault on Arkham


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.

A fantastic and wickedly enjoyable action-packed animated movie. It's packed with suspense, action and surprises and some really enjoyable characters. A fun movie that makes for a great time killer and a good time for fans of the Arkham universe and characters. I loved it, I enjoyed that it didn't entirely revolve around Batman, that he was more of a secondary character and was doing what he had to and it concentrated more on our villain's and anti-heroes of the story. It totally rocks.

They should have named it Suicide Squad rather than Batman because he is barely in it and some people will loose interest quickly, but it is an interesting addition to the Arkham storyline. It definitely caught me off guard at times with the amount of bloody violence and sexual content that Batman has never had in any film I've seen. It felt completely out of character for the series, which is again why they should have named it something else. It has quality animation and the voice talent is top notch like always, but this feels out of place. If you are familiar with the Suicide Squad and are interested than watch it, but Batman fans might feel like this is a little too far.
