ÂBatman: Quiet is considered one of the best comics in the 80-year history of the Dark Knight. It is amazing how long DCs have decided to give Hash an animated life, given that many of DCAU’s projects focused on Batman. Finally, the animation industry has changed and the 35th project in the annals of DC Animated Universe is an adaptation of the legendary series. Moreover, adaptation even actually improves the flaws of the source material, while making only minor errors.
Formally, ÂKhash is a continuation of ÂBatman’s Son and ÂBatman vs. Robin, although these projects are not mentioned much here. ÂKhash – by and large, directly adapts the original story of Jeff Loeb. As in the comic, the animated film contrasts Batman with many of his famous opponents. The Dark Knight and his enemies are just pawns in the game of some new mysterious villain named Khash. Still more complicated by the renewed romance between Batman and Catwoman. Can Bruce Wayne love? And if he opens his heart, will not his beloved become an obstacle in the battle with Has?
ÂKhash is one of the most eventful stories about Batman in recent times. While the plot has a powerful detective component, based on the mystery of the true identity of the villain, the emphasis here is usually more on action and the desire to show a large number of heroes and villains. Here there is a place and an extensive gallery of opponents from “Batmaniana”, and Superman, and even Lex Luthor. Fans can be calm, knowing that the iconic scenes of the original comic book remained untouched. The affair with Catwoman also plays a big role, and despite all the attention paid to Batman, the female side also turned out to be strong. The script “Khasha” very well conveys the romance of a turbulent story.
The visually animated film uses a style familiar to DC Universe Movies fans. This is an approach that works regardless of tone and action, but rarely stands out in the process. Also, for some reason, they omitted flashback scenes important in terms of the plot, preventing ÂKhash from marking something. However, it’s nice to see Batman move away from the new New 52 style costume from previous DCU films to more classic outfits.
From the plot side, ÂKhash is not always good at turning a comic book – a graphic novel into an 80-minute film. Material is lost in the process, and some of the scenes are replaced by concessions to the continuity of DC Universe Movies. But in addition to the main plot twist, these changes have little effect on the course of history. In fact, the film even really manages to play in recent animated projects of the Superman’s Death dilogy.
Moreover, ÂKhash can even be recommended to people who have a very superficial acquaintance with Batman. The new viewer will be told and chewed up. One way or another, even if there are drawbacks here, they apply to any other late DCU project: tasteless (at the moment) animation and sometimes weak voice acting. From the point of view of history, this is one of the most attractive animated films about Batman in recent years, surprisingly faithful to the source material, and departing from the original only as a plus.
