[Watch] Clip from BATMAN: YEAR ONE

When I heard Warner Bros. were releasing an animated film adaptation of Frank Miller’s seminal Batman: Year One graphic novel, I was well-excited. The first trailer looked promising. The voice cast, despite a lack of Kevin Conroy, was pretty top-notch: Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Ben McKenzie (Southland), Eliza Dushku (Dollhouse) and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica). But word of mouth has not been great, and a clip released this week has lowered my hopes considerably. The voice work seems monotone in this scene, and the direction worse. It certainly doesn’t look up to par with the excellent 2010 film Batman: Under the Red Hood.
