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>

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 »

Quotes

Batman: [after kicking Joker] You're pathetic!
The Joker: Oh, that's rich... coming from someone who runs in the dark, wearing a cape... and a mask!
Batman: [grabbing Joker] We both wear masks!
The Joker: Look at my face. This is who I am. My... 'mask' is permanent. You have a choice.
Batman: You made your choice a long time ago, Joker.
The 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!

really cool short film
16 November 2003 | by (mexico) – See all my reviews

I just had the opportunity at last to see this amazing short film. It cost me a lot of effort but finally i got a grab at this really good piece of art. Movies should be given to hardcore fans of the comic characters, this guys involved in this short film, did a better job than famous Joel Schumacher and all that money and famous actors in the awful flick they made. This is a great example that the heart of a movie is not a famous director or actor like val kilmer or george clooney, or schwarzenneger, my good this short film is a jewel and far more entertaining than the film directed by joel schumacher, the studios should learn that. This film rocks.
