Quote:Fun movie that requires Batman and Nightwing needing Harley's help to track down Poison Ivy before she launches a plan to basically terraform Earth and all life on it into versions of Swamp Thing.
Quote:Despite that this is another Bruce Timm production and that it is supposed to be in the same grim and brooding vein as Batman TAS, you can expect some rather funny moments in it.
Is that a knock against Batman The Animated Series? How. Dare. You?
That show is the best cartoon ever.
Quote:Particularly when they have to stop a bar used by all the henchmen of the supervillains to get info. The goons quickly realize that it really is Batman and of course they want to settle old scores. Expect some Adam West style humor at 35min 7 seconds when one of the goons comes up behind Batman and starts doing a familiar looking dance and again at 36min 30 seconds when they challenge Batman.
Quote:Batman responds by drinking a glass of milk, taking of his utility belt as a sign that he doesn't need it and says "Okay boys, let's dance!" Upon which another familiar Adam West humorous tribute occurs.
Quote:Also a bit of blood-shed in this movie to. Not often that they allow blood to be shown at all, times have shifted a bit though.
Quote:Also Nightwing, seriously? That is how you have to convince Harley to help out? Make sure you get a checkup and some medicine!
I would never knock Batman TAS.
Just saying that even though this is in the same vein as Batman TAS in terms of art, graphics, voice acting, that there are some rather hilarious comedic moments.
Not saying that it is campy by any means and I loved the Adam West tributes at the bar with the goons.
go see a doctor and get yourself checked.
