It's Nice To Feel Appreciated & Productive
7 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the those old-fashioned crime caper stories that was like a film noir - good stuff. Jimmy "The Jazz Man" Peake is out to kill Commissioner Gordon and he almost succeeds.

We have the great cars, machine guns blazing, tough talk. It's right out of a James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, or Edward G. Robinson gangster film from the '30s or '40s, or a Dick Powell or Sterling Hayden noir of the 40s and '50s.

Batman, though, is going through a kind of depression. It seems crime never ends no matter what he does. He also has to put up with that jerk Harvey Dent, who's always on his case and seems to hate him. Batman is really bummed, and wonders if it is all worth it. In the end - which is a bit hokey, I have to admit - at least he is reassured he's needed.

Some "name" actors like Seth Green, Melissa Gilbert and Diana Muldaur do voice work here but the best is a guy named Brian George, who voices The Jazzman. He does a great job and has done a lot of voices over the years.
