In this stylish DC Universe animated original movie, a figure from the Dark Knight's past unexpectedly returns, forcing him to revisit the most tragic event of his crime-fighting career. Five years ago, the second Robin, Jason Todd, was murdered by the Joker. Now, a twisted, disfigured character known as the Black Mask has seized control of Gotham City's criminal underworld, but his supremacy is undermined by the arrival of the mysterious Red Hood. One part vigilante, one part criminal kingpin, Red Hood begins cleaning up Gotham with the efficiency of Batman, but without following the same ethical code: killing is an option. After intercepting a truck containing a powerful weapon that is being stolen by Red Hood's henchmen, Batman chases Red Hood to the chemical plant where the Joker was created.

An extremely dark, brisk chapter in the Dark Knight's ever-popular screen sagas.

Definitely not for young kids, but it's smart pulp writing and well put together for a direct-to-D...

More so than most of the DC Animated films, Red Hood aims for cinematic storytelling.

Drug dealers and brutal beatings in animated Batman movie.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Batman: Under the Red Hood is a fairly dark and violent direct-to-video animated movie in which Batman battles the Joker -- as well as some personal demons from his own past. Although the plot involves an organization of drug dealers, no drugs are mentioned by name, and no one is shown dealing or using. The violence includes brutal and bloody fights, guns firing, dead bodies, fighting with swords, explosions, and chases. The movie deals directly with death and loss and has some interesting ideas about where to draw the line between heroes and criminals, though Batman himself remains a rather complicated, tortured "good guy." Kids should stick with safer Batman fare, but teens will enjoy this one.
