Movie Info

The producers of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight team with some of the most respected anime artists in Japan to explore Bruce Wayne's transition from tormented crime fighter to heroic icon of a crumbling metropolis. Separated into six distinct chapters but intended to be viewed as a whole, this stylized look at immortal DC Comics superhero is the result of a collaboration between Shojiro Nishimi (Tekkonkinkreet), Yasuhiro Aoki (Steamboy), Futoshi Higashide (Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack), Toshiyuki Kubooka (The Secret of Blue Water), and Hiroshi Morioka (Chronicle of the Wings). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

  • As something of a Whitman's Sampler of the darker side of Batman mythology, it's enough to please.

  • As diferentes abordagens estéticas enriquecem o projeto, que realmente merece aplausos com relação ao seu design de produção. Infelizmente, os roteiros dos episódios são medianos em sua maioria, comprometendo o resultado final.

  • Synergistic product promotion Gotham Knight may be, but the people behind it treat their efforts as anything but disposable.

  • Of all the animated superhero DVDs that have come out in the last few years, this one is the best.

  • Warner and DC's anthology takes a page from "The Animatrix" and comes through feeling like a fresh, original, and utterly exciting look at Batman from all artistic perspectives...

Audience Reviews for Batman Gotham Knight

A great animated Batman tale, told like six pieces of a jigsaw meant to be put together, each using a different style of Japanese anime. All go for the mysterious Dark Knight Of The Shadows effect and the result is elegant and engaging. "Here is the Batman I know," I thought

Through exquisite storytelling and animations, Batman: Gotham Knight displays the Caped Crusader in an intricate and satisfying fashion. This animated anthology utilizes various versions and interpretations of the famed-DC-vigilante to highlight the mythology behind the hero that's both impressive and innovative. 4/5

Dark, gritty and clever. Featuring a disturbing atmosphere that fans of the games, films and comics will easily recognise. With some nice art designs and action, this also gets top with Kevin Conroy reprise his voice role as the caped crusader.

In the style of The Animatrix, Batman Gotham Knight is six different anime segments that take place before the events in The Dark Knight. All six segments are well-animated, well-told, and contain so much animated blood. The animated blood is a good thing because that proves that Batman can be pretty gritty. Batman Gotham Knight is a must-see for fans of the Caped Crusader. Even the younger fans should give it a try. What?! My 6-year-old cousin saw it and loved it. "I'm just doing my job."
