Audience Reviews for Batman: Gotham by Gaslight

  • Jul 26, 2020
    Batman Gotham by Gaslight has its moments but overall it's a slight dip in quality for the DC animation films. The biggest issue I had was the added storytelling from the source material. The Killing Joke had a similar issue when it was released and the subplot adds little to the storyline. Gotham by Gaslight would've benefited from increasing the investigation angle and focused more on Bruce Wayne and Batman. The film is still a lot of fun but it's forgettable and that's the overall problem I had with the film. The two central actors are well cast and they add quality where it was sadly lacking. I'm a huge fan of these elsewhere storylines but the filmmaker and writers take away from the core characters and attempt to make something out of nothing. The detective angle was the most interesting part of the book and that is replaced with the love angle. 26/07/2020

    My all-time favourite superhero film (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns) is an animated DC movie, so I'm always willing to give a chance to whatever they bring out in my never-ending search to find the next great one. Unfortunately, most end up being pretty poor offerings. But there's a decent number that end up somewhere in the middle, and Gotham by Gaslight is on the higher end of that spectrum in between. The voice acting offers nothing special. Stylistically, the animation leaves a lot to be desired (don't let that gorgeous poster fool you). But it's the story that's truly important, and here Gotham by Gaslight finds enough success in its Elseworld telling to come off with a win.

    It's an interesting idea that works actually better than the original one: A guy in a bat suit running around at night scaring the criminal element in the Victorian Age. To spice the action, the case is against perhaps the preeminent Victorian villain, Jack the Ripper. By and large, the angle works and does so w/o a lot of time spent on the specifics of Bat-lore, and it was good to see a different take on the Bat w/o including the Joker, which gets to be a crutch DC overuses. They could do more of these.

    One of them Batman comics I'm yet to read but I gave this a watch and enjoyed it more than I thought I would, The story was gripping and very different to what we're used to, It had some great action and the animation was good too, Maybe it's a little too dark for the younger kids but it's pretty good as far as animated films based on a comic.
