Batman: Under The Red Hood

As opposed to doing anything productive I spent last night watching the DC animated film Batman: Under The Red Hood. Although not a comic book reader myself a steady diet of DC and Marvel cartoons growing up and the current wave of superhero films means that like almost everyone else I am familiar with the main players Batman, Spiderman, the Joker etc. I found the film to be really enjoyable. The plot is interesting and wacky enough to hold the attention and the Joker is exactly the sort of mad anarchist that was so enjoyable to watch in the Dark Knight. On top of this the score and character voices were fantastic and really added something to the experience. It comes to something when it is easier to understand the words of a cartoon then most of the actors in mainstream Hollywood films.

As someone who is not a huge comic book fan I would highly recommend this.
