Batman: Gotham by Gaslight: It is Victorian times and Gotham is looking a little Londonish. There is a killer afoot named Jack the Ripper stalking the streets. Also stalking the night is a masked vigilante known only as The Bat. Can Commissioner Gordon solve the cases with the help of his prosecutor Harvey Dent and Dent’s millionaire childhood chum Bruce Wayne?
The Good: The greatest thing about Gotham by Gaslight is what it doesn’t do. There are no Tesla or Lovecraft cameos. Nobody invents an airplane powered by a diamond. It is a realistic (relatively) style environment with people that act like people actually did back then (Guy in Bat costume excepted).
Gotham by Gaslight also finds proper roles for Batman’s Rogue gallery and his allies. Commissioner Gordon, Alfred the Butler, and Harvey Dent keep their old roles. While other’s get to put on a new hat. Hugo Strange is a progressive doctor running a psychiatric hospital and Poison Ivy is a vaudeville stripper. The movie has Batman in the role of Sherlock Holmes with focus on detective work rather than Bat punching. Selina Kyle (Catwoman) takes the role similar to Sherlock’s love interest Irene Adler and three Robins (Dick, Jason, and Tim) take a role similar to the Baker Street Irregulars. It is a lot of fun seeing well-known characters in their new roles. The movie handles this quite well.
The Bad: Why is this an “R” rated film? There are some adult themes but neither Poison Ivy nor Selina Kyle shows any nudity despite some obvious story beats where it would have been expected. The violence is muted and the camera turns away from anything possible offensive. I have to think this us more of a marketing ploy (An Adult Batman Cartoon) rather than a reflection of the material. If you are going for an “R” rating and your story is about a serial killer that murders prostitutes it is not as if there is no material to work with.
In Conclusion: A Sherlock Holmes mystery with a Batman dressing. It is a good mystery that will keep one guessing. Characters are well written and voiced with Selina Kyle and Harvey Dent being standouts. Overplayed Victorian elements (see above) and overplayed Batman elements (Joker) are nowhere to be found. A good family film despite the “R” rating and an excellent treat for fans of the bat.
It’s a decent movie, not a fantastic movie
I enjoyed the movie, but it was poorly made, much like twilight it’s about vampires without nothing that makes vampires actually interesting, this movie is about a vigilant in the 19 century without anything that makes a vigilant or the 19 century interesting. Specially if that vigilant is Batman.
Like someone else said, none of the detective work of Batman, just a few playing around with a scientist equipment and some tech that shouldn’t exist yet gig , and that didn’t solved anything, and the Sherlock Holmes gig, which also didn’t solved anything.
There were parts of the movie that were never explained, like why Dent went after Bruce while being his friend if he was not the Ripper ?
Also Batman is supposed to be one of the world’s greatest Martial Artist, he is a millionaire that trained with the best, so how was he defeated many consecutive times by a hobby boxer ? Oh yes the Drama needed for the movie.
Why was the Ripper scared of himself ? Why did Gordon acted like a complete different person from the Gordon we know ? What was even the point then ? Oh yes to add unnecessary twists.
The movie is interesting and the scenarios are great. But the actual writing leaves a lot to desire.
