Storyline

In Gotham City, the Riddler has secret information on the top secret Task Force X that he threatens to make public, but before Amanda Waller can have him killed, he is captured by Batman. Now with Riddler imprisoned in Arkham Asylum, Amanda Waller reassembles the Suicide Squad of captured supervillains with the mission to infiltrate the forensic mental hospital to retrieve Riddler's information. Led by Deadshot, this black ops team makes their way into the facility, only to face complications from within and without the team with secret agendas and double crosses all around. Meanwhile, Batman has his own concerns with an urgent search for The Joker's deadly bomb that threatens Gotham City. Eventually, all these players converge on Arkham Asylum for a showdown that few are going to escape alive. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

"Seriously? Ice Puns?"
12 January 2015 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

Batman is a real badass, the Joker is a total wacko, Harley Quinn is hot. What else do you need? No but seriously, Aussault on Arkham did many things right, the characters are fun (especially Boomerang who is the major comic relief in this movie, the Joker and of course Quinn), the action is pretty awesome and there were some very fine One-Liners also.

What I liked the most was the very mature style of the movie, there is blood spilled, heads are blown of and teeth get punched in but nothing is never totally over the top (as many already said it's very surprising Assault on Arkham was rated PG-13 and not R).

Altogether I liked:

-gritty style

-mature humor

-well animated action/fight scenes

-actuall plot surprises

-real fight consequences (villains DIE, and don't flee with a black eye)

-GREAT voice acting

Now for the things I did not like:

-not enough Joker (yes his role was pretty major but it was not quite enough screen time for my taste)

-overall to short (71 mins? really?)
