Open iTunes to preview, buy and download this movie.
Inspired by the hit animated television series, and featuring Warner Bros.' first-ever use of computer-generated animation, the Batman legend continues in this all-new, original story that tells of Batman's most difficult battle, as well as his confrontation with a mysterious killer -- the Phantasm -- who holds the key to Batman's secret past. The infamous Joker is also featured in this adventure in which Batman once again encounters his long-lost love, Andrea Beaumont, and considers giving up his cape and cowl forever. The New York Times calls it "a cartoon film noir," and the Los Angeles Times agrees, saying the film displays a "terrific looking world of film noir-influenced Art Deco skyscrapers, shadows, gargoyles and windows."
One of the Best Batman films
Batman Mask of Phantasm is a great Batman movie. Some may not dig the idea of an animated film that treats the material seriously but this is a great movie. Featuring the voice of Mark Hamill as the Joker and Kevin Conroy as Batman two actors that are now iconically associated with these roles. A great batman story a little slow paced but a great drama and Batman film. Top marks.
Elegant and profound
Batman: The animated series was a popular and magnificent entry into the world the caped crusader. Mask of Phantasm continues with it's brilliant art deco design and top shelf voice acting. It also incorporates parts of the legendary 'Batman: Year One' comic series all the while keeping true to it's own established lore.
The depth of Wayne, Joker and Alfred so rarely manage to show up on screen yet it is the depth of those characters that has allowed Batman to endure so long and over many iterations. Phantasm manages that and provides a somewhat satisfying sense of conclusion to the Batman: Animated series saga.
A romp with BATSY BOY!
A story well told.
