Very Dark, but one of DC Comics BEST Movies to Date

The movie is very violent (murder, beatings, and blood) and dark (angst, The Joker-need I say more?-, and the Lazarus Pit), but the mood is appropriate for this film. The story was second to none and the fight scenes were amazing! This movie is enthralling and you see the characters depicted in a much deeper way than you normally do. This movie is one of the best DC has produced. No doubt.

a little dark but great

as a big batman fan I loved this film. The animation is great and is based on the comics. There is a lot about drugs and there is also quite a lot of comic violence. Its not extremely graphic. There is however one scene where the red hood shows drug dealers a bag full of heads of people he has cut off in the last 24 hours, however you don't see inside the bag. there is also another scene where a guy gets beaten almost to death and there's blood alover his body. Also you see the joker beat jason todd with a crow bar. As well as jason beating the joker with a crow bar. great film but dark

Very good moviE but very violent,bloody, and dark

This is a awesome movie. The opening scene is brutal and very very dark when The Joker beats Jason Todd (Robin) in a warehouse then locks him up inside with a bomb that is on. Then 5 years later after Robin's death he returns back to life and becomes a vigilante called Red Hood. Lots of blood,language,violence. There's also a lot of drinking and smoking. Lots of deaths throughout the movie. Pre-teens and up should watch this. But no sexual scenes at all.

Very good,but violent

this is by far the best DC animated film yet, but it has a lot of violence.the joker beats robin with a crowbar (lots of blood is shown)a man comes out of a pit screaming in pain,the red hood opens a bag full of heads(nothing is actually shown) the joker and red hood both blow up lots of buildings, the red hood shoots a taser at a mans head blood goes on the wall. a guy named black mask swears a lot(mild, d--n, hell)the plot focuses around a bunch of drug dealers. overall a very good but dark movie.

Batman Under the Red Hood is the Best Movie Ever!

This is my favorite movie of all time. I feel like it is child friendly, but still covers darker themes. It is full of action, and it's mostly accurate to the comics. I recommend to anyone and everyone.

Great animated movie with brutal violence.

This smart film is well done and exciting but it also has a lot of intense violence and blood. Even though it's animated everyone under 9 should probably stay away from this excellent animated action movie.

red hood? very

this animated action epic pushes the limit of animated violence. there is enough blood to fill 1 SAW scene, plus countless beatings, guns, fights, and other intense and disturbing action.

Nah

I am personally not a fan of this batman animated film. Jason Todd is an annoying character. For kids only.

Best animated Batman movie!

This is a movie perfect for Batman fans. The voice acting is awesome and the story line is intriguing. Due to its violence, dark tone and drug references, I would say it's only appropriate for 13 and up

Amazing Batman animated movie

This movie was incredible. Especially for a animated movie! The only problem is the violence, there is some blood and in one sceen there is a bag full of heads and some other sceen's like that. But over all this movie was great.

Though there is violence, there is a strong positive message of always doing what you think is right. Throughout the movie, Batman refuses to kill anybody, no matter what the situation is.

Violent does not even begin to describe this masterpiece

Parents, do NOT let your young children watch this film, they will have nightmares due to the blood shed and the hauntingly chilling John DiMaggio Joker.

Spoilers

This movie is about Jason Todd's death. Jason Todd was the second Robin after Richard Grayson (who does actually appear in this movie). Jason is brutally beaten by The Joker who hits him with a crowbar over and over again while he lies in a pool of his own blood. Joker then leaves to go do other Joker stuff and leaves Jason in the warehouse alone. Once Jason reaches the door he sees the bomb Joker left in the warehouse. Batman arrives just after the bomb explodes and Jason dies. You do see Jason's dead body being held by Batman in the ruins of the warehouse, but no real gore. After Jason is brought back to life (yes you read that correctly) he becomes a vigilante that actually kills criminals name Red Hood. He does try to kill Batman and it ends with Batman blowing the hell out of him and Joker simultaneously. Most definitely not for anyone younger than 12. There is also a lot of swearing.
