Stop-motion animated films have a tendency to be awesome, ridiculous or somewhere in between - and in the case of this battle between Hot Toys' Batman and Iron Man action figures, it's definitely the latter.
On the one hand, the animation is pretty impressive
, certainly helped along by the excellent use of sound effects. On top of that, Kyle Roberts' stop-motion animated film isn't just a spectator sport - it's interactive, offering the folks at home the chance to select which character they want to win the battle. Both endings are pretty terrific, with Batman's killing move just a touch cooler than Iron Man's, in my opinion.
But we enter the realm of ridiculousness with the self-described ridiculous ending, during which Batman and Iron Man have a tearful moment of reconciliation that leads to a brief musical number from the Caped Crusader. The ending definitely deserves the ridiculous label, thanks in large part to the awkward lip-synching of each character.
Try the interactive video out yourself after the jump.
