Batman: Hush, is the latest DC Animated feature film which is based on the New Yorm Times best selling Batman comic, Hush.
In this one a mysterious mastermind who calls himself Hush, has been using some of Batman's greatest foes as pawns to take him down. From The Joker and Harley Quinn to The Riddler and Clayface, Hush slowly begins to tear Batman down, seemingly knowing everything about him, even his personal secrets. Hush continuously attacks Bruce Wayne and Batman, forcing a physically and mentally injured Batman do what ever it takes to figure out who his enemy is.
This is personally an important comicbook for me, its probably in top 5 storylines in all of comics. Its a super layered story thats basically about breaking Batman, he is forced to depend a lot on his detective ability, which is always nice. Its extremely well written and has some of the best art work ever from the God, Jim Lee.
Right away this movie takes multiple liberties with the story, i personally wanted them to stick to the actual comic. That being said they aren't necessarily bad, the movie actually works quite well and adds its own flavour to the story. Im not gonna sit here and say I hated it because I didn't get what i wanted, thats selfish, plain and simple. This story is good, take it or leave it.
The visuals are good but in comparison to Jim Lee's amazing art work from the comic, this doesn't even remotely hold a candle to it.
The voice acting is good, but sometimes it lacks emotion. Jason O'Mara is just ok, i know batman is emotionless and brooding, but i miss the feeling behind a Kevin Conroy Performance. Also Jason Spisak's take on the Joker was straight up bad, his laugh was amazing, but everything else, just no.
The rest of the cast had Jerry O'Connell, Rebecca Romijn, Jennifer Morrison, Geoffrey Arend, Peyton List, Sean Maher and Tara Strong.
In the end there are some things i wish were different here, and i do feel like they could have easily elevated the film with a couple tweaks. But i cant lie i did enjoy this movie, its very entertaining.
