Yesterday DC and Warner Bros released their 21st original animated film titled Batman: Assault on Arkham. Now despite the title, Batman is not the central character. This feature is a departure of sorts where the villains become the center to the storyline. Two villains in particular are Deadshot and Harley Quinn. Essentially this is a Suicide Squad story. Another misnomer is that Assault on Arkham is based on the popular video game series. While some of the looks and general feel is similar to the game, that’s pretty much where the comparison begins and ends. With all that said, how is Batman: Assault on Arkham? Warning spoilers ahead…

When Rise of the Planet of the Apes hit theaters in 2011 I was cautiously optimistic about how good it could be. As much as I’ve been a huge fan of the series, I was very disappointed by Tim Burton’s attempt at revitalizing the franchise back in 2001 that starred Mark Wahlberg. As it would turn out, my cautious optimism would be rewarded when director Rupert Wyatt brought to life an intelligent screenplay that audiences could appreciate and indulge in. Very seldom do sequels outshine its predecessors. Dawn is one of those sequels. Warning, spoilers ahead…
