Spoilery Review: Assault on Arkham

image

An animated Batman movie that barely has Batman in it, from the first time I heard this premise I was intrigued. Definitely a novel approach, but kudos to DC for pulling it off. Being a bit of a Marvel fan boy I was not very familiar with the Suicide Squad. If you’re not either let me fill you in. They are an off the books government team made up of supervillains, some are not that super though Captain Boomerang I’m looking at you. They are controlled by tiny explosives implanted in their heads. If they get out of line, pop goes the weasel. The woman with her finger on the button is Amanda Waller, a hard ass government agent who is not afraid to prove to the Suicide Squad that they are expendable. She wants them to break into Arkham to retrieve some data The Riddler has stolen from her and hidden in his cane. Data that will expose the programs existence and the participants identities. Where is Batman during all this? Searching Gotham for a dirty bomb the Joker has hidden somewhere.
I really enjoyed this movie. Marvel may have the edge on live action movie franchises, but DC is dominating animation and video games. The humor is great in this movie, the dialogue is witty, and the slap stick isn’t over done. This movie proves that a villain centric feature can work, at least an animated one. Watch this movie.
