I must agree with the comments below - this version of Batman is far superior than the one with live action actors. The story is much better (the storyline is far more original) and the characters far better fleshed out. I would highly recommend it.

I really enjoy animation so I enjoyed this. I think it is so much better than the actors playing roles. A step back in time but it creates a "what if" moment. Worth the watch

Hi Folks,
First right to basics, its Batman Vs Jack The Ripper in Victorian Gotham. Their will be blood, sexual situations that you would expect. Language (although it was the best use of HS I have ever seen in a story) not over the top, but language non the less. Toss in a little of Dickens's work and you have a really great story. And it is set in the Victorian era. so you will hear actually quite a bit of scripture which was nice. For fans of the original source material like myself, you will also find that WB did a very respectable job of adaptation.So depending on maturity I would say no younger than 13 alone, but probably fine for all with adults present. It is rated R for a reason.

It is hard to top Gotham by gaslight when it is drawn by Mike Mignola. Obviously the art style is completely different in the film than the comic but I thought it held its own. I'd say it is in the middle pack of DC animated films though.

This is not an animation for children, sex and language within.

Steampunk Batman! I liked this comic, but like the movie better. They give Jack the Ripper a new twist in this movie. I liked the storyline and, I always love Batman and Catwoman together, and this movie does not disappoint in this area. I hope they revisit the Batman Elsewhere series more now.
