10. Batman: Under The Red Hood
As comic book storylines go, few are as infamous and still talked about as the, “A Death in the Family”, arc that saw Batman’s trustee sidekick get brutally murdered by the Joker. Sure enough it was only a matter of time before the story made its way to our screens. And when it finally did, Brandon Vietti and co. put together an absolute masterpiece.
From establishing the gritty premise to exploring Bruce’s struggles with past events to executing a perfect slow burn when it came to the plot, nothing in this movie felt rushed or out of place. What’s even more impressive is how well they depicted Jason Todd’s psyche after effectively surviving death. His subsequent quest for revenge and fury toward his former mentor was captured with perfect emotional intensity that had viewers on the edge of their seats.
What’s more, they wouldn’t simply rely on the emotional core to get the movie across, adding a thrilling plot twist for some good measure.
