August 2, 2013 10:22 am This movie was great! I was not a big fan of the Flashpoint miniseries, but I think it works much better as a contained movie. Lots of fantastic moments, character designs, action and heart! And yes, just the right length.

April 25, 2013 10:30 am Did you notice that all the background elements looked like they were drawn in the style of Dan Hipp? Turns out he's the art director. I recognized his art style from its frequent appearances on iFanboy's Weekly Sketch Up!

I wonder if negative response to the picture, the script reviews, etc., led to it not getting picked up. I was looking forward to it, and to showing it to my daughter...

Conor, I appreciate your measured review.
May 19, 2011 4:03 pm I agree - when I started reading comics, Grant and Breyfogle were just awesome on Detective Comics. I'm excited to see them return to Batman!
