The DC Animated films were on a bit of a roll recently, with the exception of Batman and Harley Quinn, I've actually enjoyed them all for the last few years. Hush however was a let down. The original comic by Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee is great, I went into this film with certain expectations. I knew they'd change things, add stuff, remove stuff, try to fit it into the animated films continuity, that's ok. I'm fine with new adaptations. But even so, this still felt disappointing.
Some parts they kept quite close to the source material, but some scenes (that entire third act for example) stray so far that I forgot it was even meant to be Hush. The finale was awful, it felt like they'd completely given up on Hush as a character. The animation was pretty good, occasionally. Some close ups has some nice detail to them, really showing off the Jim Lee inspiration. But then you get stuff like some weird face animation and the jarring CG vehicles. I swear Riddler's van glitched across the road. And why are DC trying to make the Riddler out to be this C-list villain? Didn't the Telltale series make him out to be this wannabe supervillain too? What's up with that?
