DC ANIMATION’S The Long Halloween Part 1 is a stylish tale that looks like an homage to ‘The Godfather’. And it’s good! I never read the comic book it is based on, so I can’t speak to how closely they followed the source material. But the movie looks great, and the voice talent is spot on.
The only two negatives I have are: 1) The film’s pacing is a little slow for a superhero movie. Though does fit the detective noir genre they’re emulating. And 2) It’s part one of a two part story, so there’s no real resolution, which is frustrating.
MY 1st Impression: Batman: The Long Halloween Part One is well-worth the cost of the Blu-Ray, or the digital download. And stay tuned in until until the bitter end, Because there is an End-Credit scene.
