Any film that renews a sense of wonder in superheroes, that makes you go “,” as if you’re seeing Batman for the first time, or tickles you as the Flash whizzes, a red blur, through 1950s Las Vegas, has done its job.

The graphic novel by Darwyn Cooke is quite something else, a classic. DC’s animated adaptation is a little too compressed, a little too simplified to be spoken of in the same breath.

But it’s damned entertaining. The voices – especially Jeremy Sisto’s as Batman – are rich and on point. All in all, a success.
