The epic comic story created by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale is adapted faithfully to film animation in this 2 part series for disc and digital release.
The Production: 4/5
3D Rating: NA
Batman: The Long Halloween, Part 1 plays by default in English audio in DTS-HD MA 5.1. The sound stage is used well with some occasional directional audio to make things more immersive. Dialogue is typically audible at a minimal volume in a nice blend with sound effects and music score. French and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 are also available on the disc.
Special Features: 3/5
Batman: The Long Halloween, Part 1 is an excellent animated Batman film covering the early part of his career before he fully developed his skills as the Dark Knight Detective. The video and audio presentation are fine, and there are some nice special features with the inclusion of 2 classic episodes from Batman: The Animated Series and a new DC Showcase short featuring the team of soldiers lifted out of the pages of Our Fighting Forces. If Part 2 is as good as Part 1, it should be worth the wait.
