Batman: Assault on Arkham (2014)
Best DC Animation in a Long Time!
Why is Batman the most popular superhero? His dark edges? His vulnerability? Actually it's the villains. Batman has officially the BEST villains of all comics, even everywhere.
Which is why Assault on Arkham works so surprisingly well! It focuses more on the new Suicide Squad than the Dark Knight. We've known so much about Batman that we really can't get that sympathetic about his murdered parents anymore, but once we shift to the struggles of Deadshot and Harley, it becomes fresh again. Let's face it, everyone in Batman stories are lunatics, Batman included. But just maybe it's not so easy to be a villain after all.
Apart from the clever change of perspective, this movie offers just enough of the familiar stuff to keep traditional fans satisfied. Batman doesn't cover as much screen time as before, but from the eyes of villains, he is more menacing and awesome than ever. The animation is superb, voice acting is also top notch and satisfying. All in all, this is a movie that knows what fans want and delivers.
Every time we lose faith in the Bat, his villains make us fall in love with these characters again. Keep up the good work, DC, and don't screw up the B V S movie!
