Batman: Under The Red Hood explores what is Batman’s greatest failure……… Jason Todd’s death! The vivid animation, amazing storytelling, and brilliant voice acting makes this movie EPIC!! Batman: Under the Red Hood sure tops the list of my favourite batman movies.
Every character from Batman to Alfred, Nightwing to Jason and Black Mask to Joker is well written. The movie has many villains but they are done justice so the movie doesn’t seem like if its jam packed with villains (one thing Batman: Bad Blood failed to do).
Mark Hamill is my favourite Joker but this Joker is voiced by John DiMaggio. His joker is creepy, subtle, unstable and enjoys chaos.
As I mentioned in Favourite Batman Voice Actor, Bruce Greenwood is perfect for voicing a dark batman, it is evident in Batman: Under the Red Hood.
Instead of making it confusing with the background of so many characters a brief description is given to the audience which makes the story compelling.
Jason Todd is not everyone’s favourite robin but even then his death scenes do make you feel a lot.
The climax triggers the emotion meter of the audience.
The revelation about who is under the hood isn’t that much with suspense but the chase between Batman and Red Hood is fun.
Batman doesn’t appear as Bruce Wayne (especially publicly) so there is no heroine drama thankfully.
Though Nightwing is chatty, talkative and even himself declares that’s the part of his charm. I know he is there for comic relief but he does not feel that much like Nightwing (my opinion).
Overall the movie is my favourite.
