Based on the acclaimed DC Comics graphic novel, this epic new adventure takes Batman (voiced by Kevin Conroy) into the dark psyche of the Clown Prince of Crime. Now escaped from Arkham Asylum, The Joker (Mark Hamill) attacks Commissioner James Gordon (Ray Wise) and his family in the hopes of proving that even the most sane person can fall into the depths of madness.

Batman and the Joker have always been at odds, but this might be their final encounter. Will the Joker finally be able to steer Batman away from his vow never to kill? Will madness prevail and finally end their feud?

  • 5 stars "this movies represents the mask jokes wears, it shows how your mental sanity can be more then just good and bad, as a kid i always cheered for batman, but in this 1 for some absurd reason, the joker was person i was having empathy for... its a get movie though"
  • 5 stars "The summer's best comedy."
  • 3 stars "Mask of the phantasm. That one about Arkham? Those were great. This was kinda a flop compared. Still some value, but a bit on the stupid side. To even take on the Jokers psyche is a large mistake. Leave it as undefined and in the abyss. Signing goofy songs. Stupid. Hope the next one is back to the higher level we all have enjoyed. 3 stars for the hard work of people making animated films."
