Cartoons on bluray kind of baffle me, but I still kind of want to see this.

@johnt007871: Well-done animation is some of the best stuff I've seen on blu-ray. While the real world is imperfect and grainy, cartoons can be bold and perfect. Miyazaki movies, for example, look excellent in hi-def.

Edit: I am, however, surprised to see a graphic novel turned into a cartoon.

this movie is awesome, shows batman become batman without no cheesy ninja tales or other Hollywood foolery, that and its actually dark and gritty action not just explosions and christian bale trying to talk through choking on food...

@andrewhallze: Seconded. It's an excellent adaptation of the original comic, and Bryan Cranston is a perfect Jim Gordon.

I heard this sucks compared to the graphic novel.

I really enjoyed this as well. Never read the comic so I can't really compare but still, very enjoyable.

The cartoon adaptation of The Dark Knight Returns that recently came out is very good as well.

@johnt007871: What an uninformed opinion. You probably think old black-and-white movies wouldn't look good either.

I just watched this last night (on Blu-ray no less). The quality is good. The feel is a cross between comic book style and full animation, but it isn't jittery or stilted. It will draw you in.

@randymilleriii: Actually, the content doesn't really have anything to do with it. I just assumed after a certain point a line is just a line. Even in b&w there are many different shades and gradients you don't normally see in animation. Then again, most of the "hi-def" animation I have seen I think is technically upconverted and not originally made for HD. Guess you guys have proven what happens when you assume :)

It seems to me that you are the one making assumptions about a movie you haven't seen. You're the one who has proven the adage.
