“Produced by Chinese animation studio Wolf Smoke, this three part adventure transports Catwoman, Bane and the Caped Crusader himself back to Shanghai in 1930 for an all-out battle of thievery and mystical kung fu, and if you haven’t seen it, you’re in luck. Check out all three parts after the cut!” (Via Comics Alliance)
“I’m not afraid… I’m angry.”
I gotta say that this latest trailer has got me PUMPED! All the other trailers were a nice tease of what we all expect, but this trailer has everything! Leave your comments below.
The first two Batman movies should have been enough to dispel any doubts in the franchise. However, since the early images of Bane and Catwoman hit the airwaves, we have still managed to conjure up criticism. This new trailer should prove that the third installment will be nothing but epic. In fact, epic may be an understatement. In Nolan we trust.
What are your thoughts? Anyone seeing the 6-8 min preview this coming week? Excited?
What do you think?
I surprisingly haven’t been disappointed yet with these DC Comic (straight to DVD) movies. At first glance, I can’t say I’m a fan of the art work. It looks too simplistic, blocky, and seems too cartoonish for the mythos of Superman or Batman. I didn’t get a chance to read the comic book before watching this, so I was left with no expectations viewing this animation.
Again, DC surprises with the level of violence it can get away with in an animated film. I really enjoyed every minute of it. The beatings Superman and Batman unleash caused me to exclaim and shout with testosterone. I loved it. Cameo after cameo of both superheroes and villains, also added much to the viewing experience.
Something has to be said about the music. Given the seemingly small scope of this movie, the music score was quite moving at times. It fueled the audiences anxiousness and eagerness to see the good guys brutally spank the bad in a heavy brawl.
‘Public Enemies’ was a very entertaining watch, full of action, surprises, suspense, and tells a pretty compelling story.
Review by guest Babbler, Rick Trotter
One of American comics’ most celebrated characters continues to captivate popular culture. English producer, writer and director Christopher Nolan (Memento, The Prestige), gets the nod to follow up his brilliant direction of Batman Begins by producing, directing and writing the screenplay for The Dark Knight starring Christian Bale and, the late, Heath Ledger. This film was one of two movies that set the summer of 2008 ablaze with excitement (the other film being Iron Man). The Dark Knight enlists plenty of supporting star power with Hollywood veterans like Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, and Michael Caine. Maggie Gyllenhaal replaces Katie Holmes as, attorney/Bruce Wayne love interest, Rachel Dawes. Gyllenhaal executes the role fairly well but visually she seems better fit to play Wayne’s older sister than the object of a billionaire’s desire. B-lister Aaron Eckhart (Erin Brockovich) plays a significant role as District Attorney Harvey Dent. There’s an Eric Roberts sighting (Julia’s brother) and an appearance by Michael Jai White, who had his turn as action lead and big screen comic hero in Spawn (1997). This film was even big enough to squeeze in former Breakfast Clubber Anthony Michael Hall, who barely edges Michael Jai White for longest three-word-name on the playbill.
Nolan does a good job of showing a very different Gotham city since the emergence of “The Batman.” The city is not as dark as the one that caused Bruce Wayne to don cape and cowl in the dead of night. Evil is still present but it has been driven further underground and forced to conspire during the day since the night belongs to the caped crusader. This new criminal reality enrages a psycho villain played masterfully by Aussie Heath Ledger. Ledger had to put a fresh spin on his portrayal of The Joker, one of the most famous Batman adversaries. He seemingly exceeds expectation evidenced by the post-mortem Academy Award he received. This film asks one big question in several different ways: What does it take to push someone over the edge? The Joker continuously challenges people, good and bad, to explore their ethical limits. As maniacal as his actions seem, the pale-faced fiend is less impressed with death and destruction at his own hand as he is by triggering others to violate their own moral code joining him in the ranks of the deviant. Batman is no exemption. The Joker goads and prods the Dark Knight to break his “one rule.” This question lingers throughout the film amidst cool gadgets, harrowing stunts, nerve-shuddering suspense, deafening explosions, an invigorating chase scene and other goodies that make a summer blockbuster blockbusting!
The story is not without its holes and there are a couple stretches of dialogues that feel a bit forced. All in all, this film delivers at a high level in the comic genre of movie making. I feel it is a classic and one of the top five films of its kind.
I give this film 4 out of 5 Babbles
Thanks guys- babble on!
