review by
Mike Haberfelner

At an AA meeting, Dante (Robert P. Young), a former heroin addict, tells the group about the decisive moment in his life that led to him kicking the habit. It was a late night in a dark alley, when Dante, far enough out to not be able to get to his own feet, witnessed a young woman (Hailey Hayes) being brutally attacked by two crackheads with the obvious intention of raping her. Now Dante, shocked as he was could do nothing to help her due to his condition - but somebody else (Zack Santiago) could, and this somebody else attacks the muggers quite viciously, beating them to a pulp with such a vengeance that one could be made to assume that he's releasing all the pain of the world on them. Sure, he does it for the right reason, but there's nothing heroic about that man's deed, and it soon becomes clear the punishment far surpasses the crime. And that man is ... the Batman!

 

After having seen quite a few (official) cinematic incarnations in the past 3 decades that differed greatly in approach, the fanfilm Batman: Dante brings the Batman more to his roots again, as someone whose gimmick it is to strike fear into people - though he rarely does it with the same brutality as in this little movie that doesn't allow its hero to strike any heroic poses but instead keeps it down and dirty ... and it works, as the movie's fierce and creepy, but also well-paced and -executed to really keep the audience on edge throughout!
