Batman: The Long Halloween

Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One: Directed by Chris Palmer. With Jensen Ackles, Josh Duhamel, Naya Rivera, Troy Baker. Batman investigates a murder spree that takes place on holidays.

The first of two movies adapting the 13 volume comic book series by Tim Sale and Jeph Loeb, originally written in 1996/1997, and I still have both the single issues and a omnibus of the story sitting on a shelf in my office. It was one of the better Batman stories at the time, which is saying something, as this was near the height of the Batman comic universe at the time, just coming off of Batman: Black and White, Nightwing getting his own series, and Batman: The Animated series wrapping up on TV. The two movies they made off the story are serviceable and they hit all the major beats that a fan of the comics would expect, but I felt myself being just barely interested in them. Perhaps it was the pacing, perhaps they were making assumptions that didn’t pay off, but I wouldn’t recommend spending the 4 hours it’ll take you to watch these unless you’re a huge Batman fan already.
