It's a movie as timely as it is provocative and amazingly, for much of its running time, it is weirdly funny.

Batman: Under the Red Hood is fun, but you'll probably like it more if you already have a pretty strong Batman background. It deals with characters and storylines some may be unfamiliar with. This feels like an episode of the old Batman: The Animated Series, only darker. I enjoyed it.

I Know I am reviewing this title a while after it came out but I had to on this particular film. Being a fan of the original story line of "A Death in the Family", I was highly anticipating this movies release, I can certainly say once I saw it I was not disappointed in the least. Starting with the tremendous cast providing the voices to our beloved DC characters, then adding in excellent writing and artwork, this was one of the best DC animated films so far in my opinion. The film revolves around the story of Batman losing his protege Jason Todd, aka the second Robin to don the suit, when the Joker kills the young sidekick in an explosion. The emotional approach that this movie takes, by capturing the topic of death in a fashion that fans had not seen yet in the animated films, is only describable as brilliant. This story is the first of many to touch on Bruce Wayne's humanity that was never explored in previous comics, it still to this day holds as one of DC's most memorable tales. If you love the gritty but classical Batman stories than you will enjoy this film greatly, an instant classic with a memorable cast, Batman Under the Red Hood is a must see for any DC fan.

I guess I can get on my soapbox here for a little while, I've always loved Jason Todd, not only as Red Hood, but Robin as well. He was a more brutal Robin, a more street-wise Robin, and a personification of Batman's ruthlessness. He wasn't a Dick Grayson, he wasn't a Tim Drake, and he wasn't a Damian Wayne. He was his own, unique character, and he got killed because of it. I think the biggest draw for me in terms of Jason Todd is how his life was cut short because the fans wanted him to die, they couldn't accept this new Robin, who was so different from the previous. And so, he was killed off in a very tragic way in the story "A Death in the Family". He is now regarded as Batman's biggest failure, who knows what would've happened to Jason had he not been killed off, but thankfully, he was brought back.Unlike "Batman: Year One", I haven't read the graphic novel this is based off of, and I don't care because this is a masterpiece. In just 80 minutes, this movie changed my expectations of direct-to-DVD movies. Not all of them, but at least the DC ones. "Under the Red Hood" is dark, brutal, but also sad, mostly sad for me because I can sympathize with Todd in this situation. The climax to this is a tear-jerker for sure. The speech that Todd gives is so powerful because it's true. Why has Batman let Joker live all this time? And it's Bruce's explanation that also rings true. He can't kill The Joker, because if he does, he'll never be able to come back from it. This isn't just a matter of good vs evil, this is a matter of what someone considers right and wrong. Where do you draw the line? And when do you cross it? The animation is stunning, the story, intense but heart-breaking, the cast, fantastic. So far, this is THE animated Batman movie for me, and I say "So far" because "The Killing Joke" isn't out yet. That's the whole reason I started "The Bat-a-thon", to celebrate my favorite superhero. And that's exactly what "Under the Red Hood" is, a celebration of what makes Batman so great. And that is being able to tell mature stories, that are engaging, intense, but also emotional and stunning. I salute everyone that had a hand in making this.
