Storyline

Life isn't fair. The Joker escapes from Arkham Asylum. Bruce Wayne puts on his Batman suit, mask, and cape, and goes in pursuit. He's soon found the Joker and begins a fight to subdue the red-eyed, sneering villain. Then, suddenly, things take a surprising turn: the Joker becomes the least of Batman's worries. New enemies appear: it's as if he's found himself in another set of comic books. Can he hold his own? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Great piece of film making. Very stylish!
23 September 2003 | by (Groningen, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Don't expect a crappy little amateur film. "Batman: Dead End" puts some of the superhero movies made these days till shame.

The style and atmosphere is even darker and more sinister then in the 2 Tim Burton Batman movies. You can say that "Batman: Dead End" is a more daring movie. The movie shows how the makers can handle several styles and it's the crew that really deserves credit. Everything works perfect especially the cinematography.

But let's not forget the cast. Clark Bartram is actually a very convincing Batman (Better then Val Kilmer and George Clooney anyway) and Andrew Koenig is the perfect Joker his character is actually much more different then from the original movie in a good way. The character is more sinister and psychotic in a scary way instead of an entertaining. The characters are much more closer then the ones from the comic books.

Sure the story is just beyond silly but that's not the point, the crew really showed how they can handle different moments and styles. This little film is filled with wonderful little moments and is a shear pleasure to watch.

Awesome fights, great make-up, wonderful costumes, excellent directing, great cast, most excellent cinematography and a great and daring atmosphere and style, what is there not to like?

8/10
