Product Description

Concluding part of the animated adaptation of Frank Miller's comic book following the adventures of the caped crusader. Batman (voice of Peter Weller) and his teenage sidekick Carrie Kelley (Ariel Winter) continue to fight crime but they face a fierce enemy in the Joker (Michael Emerson) who is once again wreaking havoc in Gotham City. To make matters worse, new commissioner Ellen Yindel (Maria Canals-Barrera) disapproves of Batman's methods, along with many others, and the government has ordered Superman (Mark Valley) to bring him down.

Synopsis

The Dark Knight, along with new sidekick Robin, have finally reclaimed Gotham City and allowed a ray of hope to penetrate the reign of terror that The Mutants had cast upon his city. With Batman back in the spotlight, the extended media coverage has awoken a far worse evil at Arkham Asylum, The Joker! Forever destined to be mortal enemies, The Joker has a diabolical scheme that may pull Batman down to the darkest levels of insanity. While on the horizon, a global catastrophe races towards Gotham and with it comes a familiar face, The Man of Steel, though this time he has Batman in his sights. Witness as the aging Dark Knight wages a tireless war against crime while proving that courage and will are indeed timeless.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Clown Prince of Crime returns 15 Mar 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD reminds me what an evil, twisted mass-murdering psychopath the Joker really is. Completely without a conscience and utterly unredeemable. Since Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 (Region 2), we kept being shown glimpse of the Joker in a lunatic asylum. Finally the Joker hatches a plan for one last showdown between him and the Batman. This is dark, twisted and BRUTAL!!!! This one thing I do not understand is the fact that after all this time Batman has obviously gotten older and lost a step of two; whereas the Joker seems to have gained a step like he has just come into his prime. He is physically a match for Batman. The closet version of this Joker is in Batman: Under The Red Hood [DVD].

The other villain of the movie is Superman. Yes Superman. I think in the era when the comic was written Superman stood for "Truth, Justice and the American way". This is taken to the nth level as Superman has become an attack dog for the President. Who sums it up perfectly "We have God on our side; or the next best thing ;-)". Not being a Superman fan I always love when he is put back in his place and nobody does it better then Batman. Basically the president feels Batman working outside the system his upsetting the establishment so he tells Superman to "fix it".

Great movie just wish it was not so extortionally expansive. I am tempted to take a star away for the crazy price tag. Also my DVD came with the synopsis on the back in German. Not really a huge problem. I would recommend any to buy this DVD, but when the price drops a bit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Batman begins again. Part two. 5 Jun 2013
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
An animated Batman movie that is an adaptation of the graphic novel Batman Dark Knight Returns TP. A work that was one of a few that helped redefine the comic genre back in the 1980's and was one of the first 'graphic novels'.

You should be able to get into this if you've not read said graphic novel. But this adaptation is a two parter, and this dvd is just the second half. It follows right on from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 [Blu-ray] [Region Free], and doesn't do much to bring new viewers up to speed. So start with that rather than this.

Parents do note this is a very violent movie and well worthy of the fifteen certificate. But as they said when the graphic novel first came out: 'DC Comics aren't just for Kids.'

The story sees the forces of authority putting ever greater pressure on Batman to end his war on crime and submit to justice. As he fights to keep Gotham safe in the face of increasingly strong opposition, he has other problems. The Joker's back. The world is edging ever closer to nuclear war. Plus an old friend is now a government lap dog. And he has orders to bring him down.

This is basically a four act story, and there are great set pieces in each. Michael Emerson [Ben from 'Lost'] voices the Joker and turns in a brilliant performance, full of understated crazy menace. Mark Valley [Christopher Chance in the tv show 'Human Target'] also makes a great impression as Bruce's old friend. A sadder and wiser take on said character than we're used to.

4.0 out of 5 stars NOT FOR KIDS 22 Mar 2014
By Mar27w
Format:Blu-ray
Started watching this with my two 7-8 year old nieces as its rated PG and thought it would be fine.Had to switch it off due to the brutal violence.This is no kids movie.Features a mass shooting,throat cutting and even a stabbing scene with no cut away.I dont know what"clown"rated this but its like no PG cartoon I grew up with.Its a good movie and okay for teens but if this is what young impressionable kids are watching then somethings seriously wrong with the rating system.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Dvd Info.
Running time 73 minutes approx, Region 2, Rated PG-13 US, 15 UK.

Trivia.
1)In the final fight between Superman & Batman in the Alley keep a eye out for a portrait of Christopher Reeve which is seen briefly in one of the rooms.
2)This has been re-edited together as one full length feature dvd/Blu ray by Warner Bros recently.
3)Although his name is never mentioned it's quite easy to hear that the President of the United State's is based upon former President Ronald Regan.

Review.
The Batman has returned to the street's of Gotham City after a 10 year absence but times have changed as the police authorities want Batman arrested an old foe wants a reunion & the FBI want Superman to put a end to Batmans reign of justice in Gotham City.

Timelord Thoughts.
What intrigues me about Batman is the character's light & shade as what is it that stops him crossing that line, Personally I think it's Alfred who keeps Batman grounded as without Alfreds morals & principles instilled into Bruce Wayne Batman could've quite easily become like the Joker.

With this concluding part of The Dark Knight Returns it's focus is on the Batman/Joker relationship as without Batman to face off against the Joker has become more or less catatonic with a lifeless soul & little spirit but then strangely when word gets to him Batman has returned to Gotham City he suddenly spring's back to life as these two characters see the other as a nemesis & strangely need one another to bring out the best in each other with the Joker ups the stakes with his hideous schemes while Batman using all his cunning & resources to stop him.
