Truly awesome. I was blown away by what these
film makers were able to accomplish. They may
not have had the budget of something like
"Dead End", but in many ways this is probably
the most ambitious fan films I've ever seen.
I read a few other reviews and I'd have to
agree that the actor playing Batman is the
weakest part of this film. But the rest of
the cast and the story itself were enough to
make up for that.
This is a very creative and unique take on
the characters and I'd love to see what this
group could do with an even larger budget.
This is definitely not for everyone. There's
quite a bit of violence and a few "I can't
believe they just went there" moments. But
for fans like me that have been reading the
comics their whole life, I really appreciate
a more mature and serious look at Batman (as
far as fan films go).
Sure it's a little rough around the edges in
some places, but I think "Batman: Black and
White" is far superior to the more well known
(and more expensive) fan films.
This was an unexpected treat. Congrats to the
cast and crew. I hope to see more.
