Rating: 7.6/10 (13,925 voted)

Director: Eric Radomski

Stars: Kevin Conroy, Dana Delany, Hart Bochner

Batman, the costumed crime-fighter who prowls the night skies in Gotham City, soon finds there's another vigilante in town knocking off prominent mob figures. Despite the scythe-like blade for a hand, a mechanical voice and the cloud of smoke that follows the figure wherever it goes, the police and outraged officials mistake the homicidal crusader for Batman himself and demand that the city's longtime hero be brought to justice. Meanwhile, Andrea Beaumont returns to town. She is the lost love of Bruce Wayne, the billionaire playboy who is Batman's alter ego, and was an integral part of Wayne's decision ten years earlier to don the cape and cowl. Now, she is back in his life and is no less a disruption than the return of his old archenemy, The Joker, who has a stake in seeing the annihilation of this new vigilante, whoever it proves to be.

Technical Specs


Did You Know?

The end credit song, "I Never Even Told You", is a rare singing performance by Tia Carrere.

Revealing mistakes: During the opening sequence, the camera pulls back dramatically through the myriad buildings of Gotham City. As this occurs, the camera actually passes through several buildings - a common 3D animation problem when rendering. As a result, a few buildings "pop" into view out of nowhere.

The Joker: Ain't it always the way? You get in the mood and company shows up.

User Review



Firstly, let me say that the 1992 Batman cartoon series was the best Batman cartoon series ever made. Just like the 1989 Batman movie it returned Batman to his dark roots and was a fantastic series.

This was a great cartoon film. I haven't seen many great cartoon films but this was one. It has an interesting storyline, an interesting villain (The Phantasm), interesting subplot for Bruce Wayne and it's even got the psychotic Joker as well.

The Phantasm is the most interesting cartoon villain in a long time and with the Joker in this movie as well it makes for an exciting movie. If you want an intelligent and thought provoking cartoon film then this is the one for you.
