Batman: Hush is one of the DC Animated movies I’ve been most anticipating. I’m a big fan of the book, so I was curious to see if they’d done it justice, considering 90 percent of DC’s animated output is second-to-none. So was I satisfied? Yes, and no. I won’t get into all the difference between the movie and the comic, but they did definitely deviate in some areas, but I wouldn’t go as far as to say that it ruined my enjoyment. I actually quite enjoyed this movie. It could have been better, of course, but can you name a recent piece of entertainment – Once Upon a Time in Hollywood notwithstanding – that couldn’t have been better in some way? But, that’s neither here nor there.
Overall, Batman: Hush is an entertaining watch, but beware if you’re a fan of the source material, because some stuff is different. If you’re unfamiliar with the book, however, I can’t really think of a negative thing to say about the movie. WB’s Blu-ray release is fine. The picture quality is solid, as is the audio. The extras are about what we’ve come to expect with this kind of release. There’s a featurette, an audio commentary, a sneak peak at Wonder Woman: Bloodlines, and a few curated bonus cartoons. Overall it’s a great release of another solid animated DC film. Some might take issue with the animation style, but for most, this is another winner for the Blu-ray collection. I can’t say it’s my favorite of the bunch, but I definitely feel I got my 90 minutes worth.
