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>

Trivia

In 2019, The Walt Disney Company bought 21st Century Fox, the rights-holder for both the Alien and Predator franchises, for $71.3 billion in 2019, merging the film company, 20th Century Fox, with The Walt Disney Studios division. Ironically, DC's longtime competitor MARVEL Entertainment was also bought by Disney in 2009, even though the Alien and Predator franchises had a comic-book license with Dark Horse Comics (another competitor to MARVEL and DC), retroactively making this film an unofficial Disney and Warner Brothers crossover in vein of the official Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988).

Goofs

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 »

Best Batman Movie So Far
13 August 2003 | by newnoirSee all my reviews

Clocking in at only eight minutes this fan film of Batman has more imagination than any previous version of the Dark Knight I've ever seen.

I would have like the film to have been a few minutes longer though. So they could have developed the story more and had less of a cliffhanger ending. The actor they cast as Batman is also, physically, the most believable Batman yet. Michael Keaton was never quite right as Batman and Adam West was just too campy as the Dark Knight.

Some people won't like the crossover of other famous movie characters appearing in the film, but I thought it was fun. The dialogue, what little there is, is a bit hokey, and could have been improved though.

I'd love to see a feature length version of this film! Maybe Ben Affleck and Matt Damon at Project Greenlight should get the filmmakers of Dead End a million dollars in financing so they can add another eighty-two minutes of footage to the story! And viola! We have a Batman: Dead End feature! Filmmaker and fanboy Kevin Smith loved this film so maybe Kev can get financing!

And if you read movie internet message boards a lot of hacks and wannabe filmmakers are ripping this film to pieces. I think they're just jealous cos they didn't have the balls or creativity to make their own Batman fan film.

A good job! Imperfect, but still good!
