Style2




(Review originally written at 23 September 2003)

Don't expect a crappy little amateur film. "Batman: Dead End" puts some of the superhero movies made these days till shame.

The style and atmosphere is even darker and more sinister then in the 2 Tim Burton Batman movies. You can say that "Batman: Dead End" is a more daring movie. The movie shows how the makers can handle several styles and it's the crew that really deserves credit. Everything works perfect especially the cinematography.

But let's not forget the cast. Clark Bartram is actually a very convincing Batman (Better then Val Kilmer and George Clooney anyway) and Andrew Koenig is the perfect Joker his character is actually much more different then from the original movie in a good way. The character is more sinister and psychotic in a scary way instead of an entertaining. The characters are much more closer then the ones from the comic books.

Sure the story is just beyond silly but that's not the point, the crew really showed how they can handle different moments and styles. This little film is filled with wonderful little moments and is a shear pleasure to watch.

Awesome fights, great make-up, wonderful costumes, excellent directing, great cast, most excellent cinematography and a great and daring atmosphere and style, what is there not to like?

8/10
