In Batman and Harley Quinn, Batman and Nightwing ask for the help of former bad girl Harley Quinn to save the world.  Batman’s patience is put to the test by the unexpected twists and turns Harley puts him through during their time together.

Batman and Harley Quinn brings back that classic feeling of being a kid again watching the 90’s series, but with strong sexual innuendo.  Kevin Conroy and Loren Lester return as Batman & Nightwing to put a stop to Poison Ivy and The Floronic Man evil plan.  Melissa Rauch joins the cast as the voice of Harley Quinn and she does very well staying true to the character’s voice, previously done by Arlene Sorkin.

The movie was great as a whole but definitely has its flaws.  The tone of this movie is a bit different from previous Batman animated films and, at times, feels all over the place.  The movie starts with an action scene and continues to be somewhat serious and then Harley Quinn enters and that all changes.  Harley is unpredictable and she changes the whole tone of the film, which is expected, it even affects Batman and especially Nightwing.  It was definitely something new and the rhythm of the film can change in a matter of seconds.  Plus, the ending was quite disappointing.

However, Batman and Harley Quinn is one of the best DC animated films I’ve seen and it was great seeing that 90’s style with Kevin Conroy’s voice again.  There are some nice surprises and a few easter eggs for fans, there’s even a scene homage to the late Adam West’s Batman series.  Overall, the film was solid, but see it for yourself because I’m just some guy with a blog.

Batman & Harley Quinn feature-length animated film is available now on Digital and August 29 on Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray Deluxe Giftset, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD.
