The tagline for this movie: Everyone Must Face Their Demons. When a crime wave hits a city, it is up to two masked vigilantes to figure out who is behind the increase in criminal activity and why. As the duo find clues to who the mastermind is, they must try to make sense of how it is at all possible when the evidence points to someone who was cured of their evil.

Bruce Wayne is the rich playboy businessman who has a secret crime fighting life as Batman and must now confront the fact that his best friend is the mastermind behind the current crime wave in Gotham. Dick Grayson is Bruce’s ward and Batman’s sidekick as Robin who doesn’t understand why they can’t just catch Harvey red handed and deliver him to the police. Catwoman is Batman’s love interest who is able to maintain an unorthodox loving relationship with him behind bars until circumstance lead her to find her way out. Harvey Dent is the former District Attorney in Gotham City who became the villain Two-Face and must now contend with the fact that there maybe a new bad guy who has taken his name.

Batman vs. Two-Face is a pitch perfect representation of the live action television series from the 60’s in modern animated form. It is a great way to introduce the funny take on the dynamic duo for younger audience and a nice walk down memory lane for older viewers the same way Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders was. The voice cast is on point with those cast members who are still alive from the television show reprising their roles to give voice to the characters they played back then. Rick Morales is able to capture the campy style of the series yet again and I hope he directs any other Warner Bros. Animation movies based on television shows from the mid to late 20th century. This is a cool sequel that gives you more of what you liked in the first because it respects to humor of the source material and shows that D C Comics still have people in the animation department that actually like the characters they are working on. It was also cool to hear the late great Adam West one last time in the role that he made iconic for many of a certain generation. I rate this movie a rating of 4 out of 5.
