Beautiful animation brings to life this cash-in on the imminent release of The Dark Knight. All the stories are great as short films but none of them have enough chance to really get going. I would have preferred a single story possibly based on The Scarecrow or Bruce s time in India. It brings forth mention of some of the new characters and gives us a feel for life after Carmine Falcone in Gotham city. Kevin Conroy is back as Batman and is of course amazing as he ever was. Though this does rather make me miss The Animated Series.

Six half-baked stories about Batman by various animators with talents that range from fantastic to godawful (the first story in particular). Rated PG-13 but it constantly flirts with R rated territory due to several gory scenes and alot of swearing.

A cool smattering of different anime styles that is visually entertaining, but the plots aren't exactly Spawn material, even though they are a bit more mature than the many Saturday morning Batman shows. Definitely worth a watch for Batman fans, but not unique enough as an anime compilation for me to recommend it as a top animated movie. In other words, this ain't no "Animatrix" and this DEFINITELY ain't no "Memories", but it's a cool pastiche, though shittily written.
