    Synopsis


    Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2
    Frank Miller's seminal graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns is adapted for the small screen with a sprawling Warner Premiere animated film series that finds an old and weary Bruce Wayne (voiced by Robocop himself, Peter Weller) donning the cape and cowl once again after a long retirement. Covering the final two issues of the series, Part 2 pits the outlawed crusader against his nemesis, The Joker (voiced by LOST's Michael Emerson), as well as a militarized Superman, who carries out justice in the name of the United States of America. Ariel Winter (Modern Family) plays a female version of Robin, with Dark Shadows' David Selby rounding out the voice cast. Jay Oliva (Green Lantern: Emerald Knights directs from a script by Bob Goodman. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

      The Dark Knight Returns (DKR) is ESSENTIAL to any Batman fan. The graphic novel is required reading. The fact that it is included in this set makes this a must buy-unless you own a copy of the graphic novel already. Very similar to DC film adaption of Batman Year One, the DKR film version is faithful to the novel, with a few minor changes (very minor). The animation is a little different than the book but it is to be expected (although it is not as different as The Killing Joke will be). Although, the film is rated PG-13, this is closer to an R rated animated feature. It is a more mature story of the Dark Knight and the violence is more intense than previous Batman features. The special features are excellent, although the Frank Miller interviews are older interviews and nothing recent of the disc's release.

      Just a hardcover copy of this classic graphic novel is $23.99 on Amazon, and a paperback of the 30th Anniversary Edition is $12.53. This package includes the hardcover 30th Anniversary Edition of the graphic novel, two blu ray discs (animated movie version of the graphic novel, and special features), plus a DVD and digital copy of the movie. The story is classic and was one of the stories that inspired Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. This package deal is a fantastic value.

To you love Frank Miller's epic graphic-novel from which this animated movie is based on? - YES! Would you love it all wrapped up together in a super-sexy hard cover pressing of said graphic-novel? - WHY, YES! THEN BUY THIS SET, and ENJOY!

      This movie is probably one of the best portrayals of Batman and Frank Miller does an amazing job telling this story. Not only is the blu-ray included but the graphic novel which is one of the best comic book versions ever. This is definitely a most buy for superhero lovers plus the price is insanely reasonable compared to how much the blu-ray and graphic novel cost separately.

      I paid very little for this and don't regret it. Well worth the normal price. I was just getting out of comics around the "Doomsday Superman" era, so I missed a lot. I find it is easier to pick up a graphic novel (and cheaper) than to hunt down the actual comics. I'm not a collector these days, but I still enjoy the comic format from time to time. The movie set was a nice inclusion as well.

      For my money no live action version of the DC Universe has ever lived up the to the animated films that DC comics has produced over the past 10 years. I don't mind buying them again not only to have them in a Bluray format but the bonus of a hard cover graphic novel included makes the purchase well worth the price. I've collected all that have been released so far and look forward to future reissues with books and blurays.

      This graphic novel/movie are heavily referenced in Batman vs. Superman. I did not hate the latter, but this graphic novel and movie are significantly better. I don't understand what the rationale behind borrowing what they did from their source material was. Nonetheless, I highly recommend this as it is a good read and a movie. For $20, you get a book and a movie, about Batman... need I say more?
