EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Batman VC section we have a little look at this homage to the Godfather's Michael Corleone... CARMINE FALCONE! We shall actually begin with the video game based off of the Batman Begins movie in which Tom Wilkinson did reprise his role from the movie. While I admit I do think that Tom's performance was a bit more memorable in the movie than it was in the game but its still good though as it does suit the role fairly well and is a pretty good example of the voice-work in the game.
About 6 years later there was a direct adaptation of the Frank Miller comic Batman Year One with an animated movie of the same name in which Alex Rocco gets to take over the role here. In case if you didn't already know Alex Rocco has been playing men in the Mafia for decades now so in other words Alex is fairly familiar with roles like this and it shows pretty well here. Alex does try to go for a nice mix of gruffness and smoothness in his voice for the role which works out pretty well here. Alex's performance for the role also does suit on how Carmine is known as a charismatic smooth-talker but will generally be violent when things don't go his way and is a good example of the voice-work in Batman Year One. Overall I liked them both but I will go with Alex Rocco a bit more here...
