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

The black and gray Batman's costume is a tribute for the original No. 1 Detective Comics' cover, where Batman debuted in 1939. See more »

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 »

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!
Batman: Criminal scum like you.....

Among the top tier as far as fan films go
5 October 2005 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Hearing constant kudos and praise for this short fan film, my interest was piqued. Just being a fan film that one of the few that is NOT about Star Wars is enough to recommend it. Seeing Batman take on an alien as well as Predators is fun in an ultra geeky way and for the money spent, it IS quite a nice looking and polished film. On a whole, I did enjoy it. The one thing that didn't work for me in the least was the casting of Boner from "Growing Pains" as the Joker. Listen, the guy has had NO work since that show for a reason. He just can not act and brings the short to a grinding halt almost before it truly begins. But as I said, it's a huge nerdy Geekgasm after the Joker is out of the picture.

My Grade: B
