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.

During the opening credits when Batman is getting dressed, the reporter says "At this time Dr. Harley Quinn Is still missing." Harley Quinn is her villain name, so the reporter should have said "At this time Dr. Harleen Quinzel Is still missing." See more »
[after kicking Joker]
Oh, that's rich... coming from someone who runs in the dark, wearing a cape... and a mask!
We both wear masks!
Look at my face. This is who I am. My... 'mask' is permanent. You have a choice.
You made your choice a long time ago, Joker.
NO! You did this to me! And you condemned me to that asylum, like some bastard child that you refuse to take responsibility for! That's why you'll never kill me, Bats! You made me... Daddy!
Criminal scum like...

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?
