“Condensing a sprawling story arc into an 80-minute film is no mean feat. But smarter creative choices, especially with regards to story, would have truly elevated the material in a big way. Featuring top-notch animation and action sequences Batman: Hush is a worthy addition to any avid Batman fan’s film collection.” Flickering Myth

“Often it feels that this exists just to bring out a line-up of super-villain cameos and have them all improbably being manipulated by Hush. You suspect that this would have worked more substantially on the comic-book page spread out over twelve issues where each would have been given more time rather than the story arc being condensed to an 81-minute film.” Richard Scheib, Moria
