From the graphic novel of the same name by Brian Augustyn
Batman and other Gotham characters are recast in a late 1800s Gotham City, and must stop a series of “Jack the Ripper” style murders.
I loaned several seasons of the truly excellent Gotham TV series to a friend and his teenage sons, and one of the sons got me this as a thank-you present. And they say millenials don’t do well with social interactions! A very thoughtful gift!
Anyway. I took this along when I went to the Red Cross to do Apheresis, and it was excellent for lying for a couple of hours with needles in my arms- interesting, well done, suspenseful and fun.
The animation was good- stylish but not overfancy. The characters were good too, and the whodunit ending was surprising, if you haven’t read the book (and I don’t remember reading it if I did, so I was certainly not expecting what happened.)
My only slight problem with it was the period setting, which was a mishmash of both British and American and several different decades of things, references and happenings.
But, to misquote another movie…”Forget it, Otter. It’s comic books.”
Worth seeing if you are (like me) a fan of Batman or Gotham.
