Even Better than Part 1 Posted by: from: Houston, TX on Even better than part 1. I like this take on Superman in this part 2 of Batman The Dark Knight Returns Part 2. Only thing i don't like is the female robin.

Epic Batman Story Posted by: from: Houston, TX on The graphic novel series this is based on came out when I was in high school and to me was the defining Batman that I always had wanted but didn't know until I read it. I wish Kevin Conroy from Batman the Animated Series had done the Batman/Bruce voice and Mark Hamill had done the Joker Voice. That;s not to say that the actors that did the movie are bad. I know a lot of comic fans of the graphic novel were disappointed that Batman and some other character's internal thoughts/voiceovers were not included in the movie but that didn't really bother me. I realize that certain changes are made when stories switch media. The best part is the epic fights between Batman and Joker and Batman and Superman. Any Batman fan should be sure to add this to their collection!

Batman vs Superman Posted by: from: on Dawn of Justice this is not...the film that Zack Snyder has so liberally stolen artistic references from. Faster paced than part 1. Batman takes on The Joker and Superman in this one and does not disappoint. Highly recommended for any fan of Batman or comics in general.

Decent adaptation of the great graphic novel Posted by: from: olathe, ks on I bought this and part 1 on blue ray, becasue I was always a fan of the graphic novel. Storywise its right on, but the only gripe was the same as with the graphic novel. I was never a big fan of the art of the graphic novel, again loved it, because the story was just fantastic. But they tried to mimic the style of the comic into the film and it looked like the characters were deformed, lol. but still if your a fan of the graphic novel this and part 1 are worth picking up.

YES!!! Posted by: from: on I will have to say that I Love all of these films as I state throughout my reviews of all of these DC animations, and animations in general. This film is Jay Oliva's Greatest Work. A diamond in the Rough. I mean really really GREAT, like all the other DC comic animated movies. The feel of this rivals the live action Chris Nolan Batman films. Such a Great Job really! Phenomenal. Fans need to Buy the Entire DC animated collection. I am a Harsh critic about these movies and yet these keep getting my purchases!

Better than the live action films by far! Posted by: from: United States on While the Dark Knight Rises film was a huge let-down to me, a similar animated movie, Dark Knight Returns, was available to fill its shoes. This movie did everything that I originally hoped Dark Knight Rises would do, including visualizing an old Bruce Wayne, introducing a new, female Robin, and returning to Batman's roots as a vigilante who has to fight the police as well as the criminals. The good: 1. The premise is good. Batman returns from retirement. 2. Batman's voice may seem bland at first, but it grows on you. He seems a lot more intelligent and educated than the previous Batman voices I've heard. I like this change. 3. Batman enters into an all-out fight against Superman. The bad: 1. Animation quality suffers greatly during some of the gunfight scenes, and you can easily notice some very lazy animation shortcuts being taken. I have seen more attention to detail in motion comics! 2. Voices of important characters are sometimes very bland and unremarkable. 3. You need to purchase two separate movies (part 1 & part 2) to get the whole experience. I want to touch on the animation issues. There is a moment in part 2 when Robin is scaling a roller coaster by jumping up the pipe structure. She does not have any depth inside the scene and just seems to hover over the scenery like an overlay. None of the bars ever go in front of her, making it seem like she can fly, which is not the case. Overall, both movies are worth getting, together or apart, and will entertain all Batman fans. The Joker is as sadistic as ever. Dark Knight Returns is based on a very old comic, so do not expect a whole lot of fan-service. These two movies will not show a whole lot of backstory and will require the viewers to have some previous knowledge of Batman lore in order to truly appreciate the story. However, in part 2, Superman is awesome, so if you just want to see the cool superhero fight scenes, get part 2. The DVD/Blu-Ray extras are neither amazing nor stale. You get a digital comic version of the story on the Blu-Ray. The Blu-Ray disc also has a few featurettes. The DVD has a few commercials for other DC animated movies, including Superman Unbound. The featurettes include a few interviews, some retrospectives, and 3 "bonus cartoons", which are most likely Batman Beyond episodes. (I have not checked yet, but part 1 had 2 Batman Beyond episodes on it.) For the most part, the extras do not interest me. I bought these combo packs simply because I wanted as many ways to watch the movies as possible. However, I think the bonus cartoons are very nice bonuses.

Best Batman movie to date live or animated. Posted by: from: Joliet, IL on Frank Miller before he went crazy wrote an amazing comic known as The Dark Knight Returns. This movie is that story brought to life in an animated world. There were some changes from the original story but all for the better imho. If you enjoy the Batman Franchise then you owe it to yourself to put this film in your library. The copy I purchased came with a $5 off coupon for The Dark Knight Returns part 2.

The perfect conclusion to the saga Posted by: from: Birmingham, AL on I really enjoyed the conclusion to the Dark Knight Returns saga. Spoiler alert...the introduction of Superman was also a pleasant surprise. The final confrontation between these two Justice League members was well worth the wait.

Awesome. Posted by: from: on BUY PART 1. This is for the diehard Batman fans who appreciate the original animated series. Batman has aged and become even darker a hero, in this chapter he deals with the Joker once more.
