Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

1993 PG 1h 16m DVD
  • Overview
  • Details
In this animated adventure that rivals live-action adaptations, the wealthy Bruce Wayne is torn when an old flame returns to Gotham City. At the same time, the Phantasm, a "hero" who's killing Gotham's gangsters, confronts Wayne's alter ego, Batman. Through flashback, the film reveals the origins of Batman's costume and his ongoing rivalry with the devilishly villainous Joker (voiced by Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame).

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this is a more mature Batman cartoon than the ones they might remember from their Saturday morning-TV childhoods. There is real death (including a parent), much violence -- even if it's animated -- involving explosions, guns, knives, etc. There's even some unsettling imagery involving corpses and the Joker that may upset the youngest kids. Anyone unfamiliar with the Batman saga might have some trouble following the story.

Sexual Content

Just a hint that Bruce Wayne and Andrea have spent the night together.

Violence

Much fighting, gunshots, and explosions. Some blood and dead bodies shown.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

Batman never kills and seems to act noble and suitably heroic. Though his quest for justice suggests that being a vigilante has ruined Bruce Wayne's personal life, his righteous motivations and crimefighting are contrasted with the much bleaker personal vengeance mission of the Phantasm. Andrea is a particularly strong female character. Gangsters are of stereotypically Italian-American descent, and Gotham City businessmen, police, and government officials are mob-connected or threatening.

Consumerism

Tie-in to vast quantities of related merchandise.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social drinking; Bruce Wayne gets wine tossed on him at a party by an ex-girlfriend.
