UPDATE: Daily Feature AND front page!!! Wow. This is my first one. Something I've been working at for a long time. Thanks everyone for the great feedback and votes!

Also, a few of the rather constructive critical reviews have pointed out that the "running" shot looked a bit off. So I have touched it up and made it a bit smoother. Thanks for the reviews everyone. Keep em' comin'. I love feedback.

Well, where to begin...

I came up with the idea for this project shortly after seeing "The Dark Knight". I thought it would be cool to show how Batman handles the fact that he's become a fugitive. This was supposed to be a three month project but took about six. I wanted to combine elements of "The Dark Knight" and "Batman: The Animated Series". I also bought a draw pad (finally) so I could really get the illustrations down. It was illustrating the city that was the hard part. I actually built a clay model of the city so I could get all the perspectives right. No easy task.

Just so everyone knows, there's a "Return to Menu" button in the bottom left corner of the screen while to movie is playing. Just in case you can't see it.

I'd also like to thank all of my voice actors for helping me with this project. I think they really added alot to it.

And one more thing. I do not own the rights to any of the music used in this movie, nor do I claim to. It's all primarily from Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.

Anyway, ENJOY!!!

Good short feature!

I remember seeing the trailer for this and given constructive criticism for it, but I would have never imagined the full feature to be this good. Bravo to you!

The writing has its merits - there were some really good lines and the overall plot very solid. Some of the lines were delivered well, such as the Detective's, while some others still need some work. The lack of acting in some of the voices is perhaps one of the very few things that weaken this feature.

The directing is surprisingly well done, having seen the trailer. The cuts are full of energy, making the overall somewhat lack-luster graphic not such a big issue. Even though the pictures are not too well painted, the editing is much better than the average flash movie here and actually pulls me into the story.

Overall, good writing, great directing and editing, voice acting and graphics need work, but overall I appreciate the Dark Knight soundtrack as well. Great atmosphere. This is truly one of the more outstanding flash features to be seen in a while, which is why this lengthy review is written. I hope it has been helpful, and please accept my sincere appraisal and encouragement - you are very talented, and now I definitely want to see your next piece!

This was a really good idea. This was a very well made animation with the right action and I loved the fact of how you combined the Dark Knight movie with Batman: The Animated series. All I have to say is...PLEASE MAKE MORE!

Excellent story and animation, and the use of the music really created the right effect. I'm glad it wasn't your average fan boy shit, and something worthwhile...good job!
