Batman: The Long Halloween

{4.5/5} “‘Why are you running?’ ‘Fun. You could use a little fun.'” — Batman & Catwoman

Batman: The Long Halloween, released in 2021 (in 2 parts)

When Carmine Falcone’s nephew is murdered, Captain Gordon brings Batman and Harvey Dent together to try to find out what’s going on. Falcone doesn’t care who pulled the trigger — he blames new DA Dent. Falcone blows up Dent’s house but he wasn’t inside. Meanwhile, Catwoman shows Batman where Falcone is hiding a huge stash of money.

This is an animated movie based on the comic book.

The animation has a bit of an old fashioned feel, which is perfectly fine.

Catwoman and Harvey Dent have great roles in this story. The Joker, Poison Ivy, and Scarecrow also show up for some fun. Solomon Grundy, a Hulk-like figure, is also here — I haven’t seen him before.

Batman makes 1 or 2 mistakes, as he’s only human.

It’s pretty serious overall, and includes big changes in the lives of the characters.

Stars the voices of Jensen Ackles, Robin Atkin Downes, Katee Sackhoff, and Naya Rivera. Directed by Chris Palmer (Superman: Man of Tomorrow). The mysterious music is by Michael Gatt.
