Everything Wrong With Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is... pretty great. One of the best Batman movies, actually. But like all movies, it still has sins. And we counted 'em.
Thursday: Action sins?
Remember, no movie is without sin! Which movie's sins should we expose next?!

    A lot of the "plot twists" are too obvious for you, so you're sinning them as if they weren't supposed to be plot twists. 1. The Joker was in several of the flashbacks. He was the gangsters' hired killer for years and he knows that whoever is killing them off is going to be out to get him, too. It's the reason the Joker is able to sniff out who the Phantasm is before Batman does: He pretty much narrowed it down to two living people who might want him and his buddies dead, because he knows _exactly_ what events they want revenge for. Arthur Reeves the assistant D.A. was his first guess, but when Andrea called his office he knew it had to be her. 2. The Joker rigged the camera up to the bomb at Vallestra's house because he wanted to be sure the killer wasn't Batman - or maybe he was _hoping_ it would be, because it means he's finally driven Batman to murder. 3. The Joker wasn't calling Batman on the phone to taunt him, because it's the phone at Andrea's apartment. The Joker cold-called her to see if she was home, and Batman picked it up he sent the bomb through her window thinking Batman was her. Basically, Batman is the innocent bystander in his own movie for a significant portion of the runtime, because he doesn't find out until the climax that Andrea was the villain. The Joker isn't just thrown in for nostalgia, because this movie tells part of his origin story as well as Batman's - and Batman needed the Joker to tell him that Andrea tricked him and he's been chasing a red herring.

    Sin 47: The reason Joker sounds like Chucky is because Mark Hamill voiced Chucky in the new Child’s Play remake.

    Batman's costume looks soooooo stupid. If I was a villian I'd lose to Bats not because he beat me up because I was laughing my ass of when I look at him. Is it easy to join Cinemasin?

    Fucking. Get. Over it. Batman. Jesus christ this guy puts Edward Cullen to shame with his self indulgent emo cry fest. Your god damn parents are dead and they would be disappointed seeing you weep your life away crying about it. Batman is awesome but Bruce is a bitch. Go get mental help

    7:55 Barrier was under Batman's cape the whole time, so he didn't need to pull cape off. :P Honestly, I think that creators initial idea was to make a cape with some metal frame inside - just for such cases to make a cape to be a distraction. But at some point during the animation was a mistake.

    I personally think the Bat-signal can be seen as a warning light. If you are committing a crime and that bad boy gets lit, you better fucking run. Lock your doors and hide under your bed or in the closet and pray to God you make it to the next morning in one piece.

    you missed that the phantasm causally was out running the batplane right after the explosion



    Regarding the Batsignal, I think the 2006 series did it the best. Whenever Gordon wants an audience with Batman, he presses a button and it causes an alert to go off on the batcomputer screen.

    You missed one very important sin: Andrea points out the hypocrisy of Batman questioning her quest for vengeance and has no reply Honestly though, that seems to be a reoccurring theme/problem with Batman: Someone points out the flaws in his ideology or methods and he has no rebuttal
