There's a mystery afoot in Gotham City, and Batman must go toe-to-toe with a mysterious vigilante, who goes by the name of Red Hood. Subsequently, old wounds reopen and old, once buried memories come into the light.
Batman has not been seen for ten years. A new breed of criminal ravages Gotham City, forcing 55-year-old Bruce Wayne back into the cape and cowl. But, does he still have what it takes to fight crime in a new era?
Batman discovers a mysterious teen-aged girl with super-human powers and a connection to Superman. When the girl comes to the attention of Darkseid, the evil overlord of Apokolips, events take a decidedly dangerous turn.
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

When the helicopter falls from the skyscraper it falls outside the window where Batman has been fighting. However Batman was in a different skyscraper - distinctly shown a few minutes before so it should have fallen from the sky scraper opposite. See more »
Top notch character development, particularly for underused characters.
Top notch writing, something sorely lacking in Hollywood in general.
Top notch animation with so many brilliant subtleties.
Top notch directing...no wasted scenes.
Before watching this, if you are a true fan, seriously go through every episode of Justice League Unlimited, Batman Beyond, and Young Justice. The characters are so rich and vivid given that context. If this is your first DC film, well, I hope you appreciate how truly brilliant these characters have been cast in this particular film.
