Batman vs. The Joker, with extras
15 January 2007 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'Batman: Dead End' is a short film made by Sandy Collora on a small budget and considering that he has done a nice job. We see Batman (Clark Bartram) putting on his suit, as a Batman-film should begin, before going after The Joker (Andrew Koenig), escaped from Arkham Asylum once again. They fight, have some dialogue together, and then you should stop reading if you do not want to know who will enter this short film next.

The Joker gets destroyed by Predator, the alien character from the Arnold Schwarzenegger film with the same name ('Predator', not 'Schwarzenegger') before Batman is attacked by an Alien, known from the 'Alien'-series starring Sigourney Weaver. How it all ends up exactly you should see for yourself in this dark but nicely made short film which almost could be considered as a little preview for the 2004 film 'Alien vs. Predator'. On entertaining values I would choose to see 'Batman: Dead End' and leave it at that.
