Bringing the comic book adaptation to a close Batman: The Long Halloween, Part Two did not disappoint. Released on digital on July 27th Batman fans again were stuck on the edge of their seats. From the non-stop action to the mystery of The Holiday Killer, Batman: The Long Halloween Part Two picks up without missing a beat. For those who have not seen it yet, I will do my best to make this a non-spoiler review.
BATMAN: THE LONG HALLOWEEN, PART 2 REVIEW
First I would like to say thanks to Warner Bros. Animation and DC for providing me with a copy of Batman: The Long Halloween to review. After watching Part One, the first thing I thought to myself was “how can this get any better?” Well, the minute Part 2 started the question was answered. For those that watched Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One it seemed every time you thought you knew who The Holiday Killer was you found out you were wrong.
The Long Halloween, Part Two picks up with Bruce Wayne dealing with the aftermath of him meeting Poison Ivy during the post-credit scene. While this is going on Batman is MIA for a bit (Until he is rescued by Catwoman). During this time, the Holiday body count keeps rising and with no leads on who the killer is, it really starts to take a toll on the Falcone family and Harvey Dent. After it seems that all the leads have led to nowhere Batman and Commissioner Gordon begin to focus on the one suspect they didn’t want to believe was doing the killings. Also, with appearances from some of Gotham’s most wanted like the Joker, Scarecrow, Mad hatter, and more, you get more tricks before the treat of the reveal of The Holiday Killer.
My Final Thoughts
As a person who was not a big DC fan, Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One and Two has definitely changed that! This two-part animated series from DC and Warner Bros. is a must-watch. This has been one of the best animated movies I have seen in a long time. The way you were misled in both parts is what kept you going. The action was non-stop and while the story was dark there were moments of humor that tied everything together.
The animation in Part One and Two was amazing and gave you the feeling from the graphic novel. Also, the cast knocked it out of the Gotham Stadium. Starring Jensen Ackles (Batman) Josh Duhamel (Harvey Dent), Billy Burke (James Gordon), the late Naya Rivera (Catwoman), these actors along with many others made you feel what each character was going through emotionally, no matter if it was good or bad. Just do yourself a favor and go watch Batman: The Long Halloween Part One and Two now! Batman: The Long Halloween, Part Two is available now on Digital formats and will be available on Blu-ray on August 10.
