The voice of Batman is as always played to perfection by veteran Batman actor Kevin Conroy. Overall, this Batman animated movie had a sexy, trilling, attitude which was packed full of lethal action that would please any Batman fan. 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. Every time Conroy lends his voice to the character, even only for a small role like this film, you really feel like you are listening to the only actor fit for voicing him. I also loved Hynden Walch as Harley Quinn and I will go as far as to say that Harley was my favourite character in this film. It is also the right element of dark. Joker and Harley Quinn are especially impressively written and steal the show.
This is not for kids, in case you're one of those unsuspecting parents out there who still thinks cartoons with comic book characters are for all ages. Eventually, all these players converge on Arkham Asylum for a showdown that few are going to escape alive. I'd dare say this is more brutal than even 'The Dark Knight', with exploding heads, lots of human collateral damage and blood aplenty. There's cursing, partial nudity, blood, and violence galore but the script is tired. Part of me was a little nervous though, despite my love for Batman and all these villains 'Suicide Squad' did not work for me at all. This movie is dark, gritty, bloody and mature, a true animated masterpiece! The animation and art style is great and superb voice acting by Kevin Conroy Batman , Troy Baker The Joker , Neal McDonough Deadshot and pretty much everyone else; they really bring the characters to life, especially Conroy who has been voicing the caped crusader for decades and practically knows the character inside out. Yet in this familiarity comes the opportunity for the characters to truly shine thanks to some magnificent chemistry and voice acting.
This film raises the hype metre even higher and i am hoping for something great that could even trump The Dark Knight in terms of darkness and pure character development. In my opinion, it's about time Warner Brothers created a Batman animated movie based on the atmosphere of the Arkham games as it is so popular with the fans. The end result was positive to me, though. Even if you don't play the Arkham games why wouldn't you? 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. Even though the plot is quite different, I wanted to see how they handled character introductions and story setup.
Overall, not only does Arkham Assault totally blow Suicide Squad away in terms of dialogue, plot, pacing, and character development, but it also could take on most heist classics as a genre buster! Assault on Arkham is a major step away and in the right direction from the family orientated animated Batman series and movies from the 90s. The story is simple enough. Assault on Arkham can stand alone as a title without the Batman branding getting in before the colon. Meanwhile, Batman has his own concerns with an urgent search for The Joker's deadly bomb that threatens Gotham City. The setup for the story is straight-forward as well and doesn't get bogged down with too many characters. Meanwhile, Batman has his own concerns with an urgent search for The Joker's deadly bomb that threatens Gotham City.
Penguin has turned into Bob Hoskins for some reason. The characters' costume designs are uncreative and drab. Just as a note don't show this to children it is too mature for them. Would recommend to anyone who's a Batman fan. Synopsis 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. Lastly, we have the good old 80s version of stout Amanda Waller. He may not be as threatening and villainous as Hamill is but he comes a close second.
The animation was fantastic, the character designs were awesome, the dialogue was great. I just finishing watching Son of Batman, and I was thinking to myself, this movie is pretty edgy and leans more toward adults than I would ever expected. It could have been more atmospheric though. Batman himself is really a side player here, and quite honestly by the time he becomes involved in the story, his presence is unwelcome. Synopsis 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.
Their roles in the team are familiar archetypes for classic villain teams: the alpha male leader Deadshot , the butt monkey backstabber Captain Boomerang , the dumb muscle King Shark , the seductress Killer Frost , the mysterious odd one out Black Spider , and the psycho Harley Quinn. Now locked away in Arkham Asylum with the rest of Batman's rouges gallery, Riddler has a flash drive with the information stashed in his cane, which is locked up tight in Arkham's storage lockup. The bad ones are that. Good animation, solid voice acting and a refreshingly different story make this one a worthwhile watch. This has both good and bad consequences. What was strange was how certain characters and how they were used in previous titles were changed drastically, especially Amanda Waller. Unfortunately, Squad 1 see my review here is a different version of this altogether.
It feels funny to me that if they would have made this into a live action film, they would have had to rate it R. All well thought out, and given enough backstory and motivation that you feel they're real characters, without globs of weighty backstory. The action sequences are well done and thrilling to watch. It's fun watching them execute their plan and infiltrate the deep recesses of the island. A lot of the backgrounds look to clean and polished. You can tell this for a number of reasons.
I fully admit to not know what was taken from the comics story-wise but I was kind of fascinated how the Suicide Squad movie does include a lot of the same elements. Before watching this, if you are a true fan, seriously go through every episode of Justice League Unlimited, Batman Beyond, and Young Justice. This film took a more mature route which I absolutely love.

Thankfully, count me in as another person who found 'Batman: Assault on Arkham' a vastly superior film, am aware it came out earlier than 'Suicide Squad' but saw this much later.
