Editorial Reviews

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 Superb work by Oliva and company January 9, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Olivia has crafted a masterpiece with the second half of this epic. While never forgetting that he was in service to the story, Oliva clarified muddy plot points and streamlined Miller's work while remaining true to the sequence of the story STEP FOR STEP. The voice acting was superb, with Weller's weary, resonant baritone serving well in the place of iconic Kevin Conroy.

This two-part feature has become my benchmark for animated interpretation of graphic novels, and has my highest recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellence, Cinematic January 8, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Part 2 steps it up, From brutal rendetions Batman's crushing punches, Jokers an omnisexual, truly homicidal killing nightmare to Superman's immense power yet patriotic imbecilic servitude this is the finest adult animation DC has ever produced . Be warned this is violent and bloody with the Joker scenes being painted red with chilling death scenes. The Superman Batman throw down is truly epic and cinematic with a movie quality score. Peter Weller does a fantastic job capturing the hyper intelligent, brooding, serious and pragmatic older man Batman who's burning rage cannot be quenched from his traumatic childhood scarrring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb January 12, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I really enjoyed part 2. I couldn't wait to check it out when I saw the initial trailer for it. Hopefully others will enjoy this as much as I did. This will definitely have you wanting more. I will pick up the best buy release when it hit the stores for the joker figurine that comes with it. Very dark, the way batman should be seen. Loved it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing after the long wait February 2, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I wanted to like this and the previous Part 1. Really, I did. I've been re-reading the graphic novel every few years since it came out in 1986, and I hear the dialogue in my head as I get to each panel. When DC released the direct-to-video version, I had high hopes for how they'd translate it to the screen, and looked forward to seeing it animated.

It's not bad, certainly. They did a fair job, but there were two gaping holes in my opinion. First, the creators of the movies did away with the internal monologue that was the real treat. What set TDKR apart from the rest of the comics at the time was the inside look at what's going on in Bruce Wayne/Batman's head. You followed along with his thought process as he looked at the world as it had become, and it was the combination of the story being told (which was fairly well represented in the movie) with the monologue that provided the glue that held it together. His running internal commentary as he chases the Joker through the Tunnel of Love. His internal commentary as he beat the snot out of Superman. The creators have taken some of that internal monologue and turned it into dialogue, but it's just not the same. I expected to hear the monologue as part of the soundtrack to the action, and the lack of that monologue reduced the film to merely an animated version of the action on the panels, not what the story was about.

Secondly, I'm afraid I've been spoiled by other voice actors. Ever since Batman: TAS came out, I hear Kevin Conroy's voice in my head when I read something thought or said by the character. It was certainly interesting to hear Peter Weller's voice bring some Robocop-like nuances to the role, but Weller's voice fell short.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect February 2, 2013
By Ryan
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I loved part one but part two is even better, I didn't think it would even be possible but this film pulled it off. I've read the source material several times and always wished I could see the biggest fight of all played out on the screen. This film doesn't disappoint in the slightest, Peter Weller once again nails it as batman. The comic book was written in the 80s and this shows in key scenes, Reagan is president and the soviets are still around terrorizing the rest of the world, so keep that in mind as you watch this. The dark knight returns is the comic book that's responsible for the batman we have today, it brings a gritty and angry batman to the forefront. The fight is actually better than I always imagined it would be, and as far as I'm concerned the question of who would win was answered with this movie. I've watched both parts multiple times now and it never stops being cool, definitely worth checking out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tour de Force! True to the original graphic novel February 1, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
** This review has many spoilers **
These 2 movies are a terrific adaptation that are true to Frank Miller/Klaus Janson's 1986 landmark story which along with the Watchmen invented the concept of comic book graphic novel. The Dark Knight Returns remains one of the greatest graphic novels of all time and I still remember picking up the 4 issues of the story back in 1986, not realizing the significance of what I was reading. So the makers of these movies had a lot to live up to when they decided to adapt the graphic novel into a movie. Firstly it was a very wise decision to split the story into 2 parts, too much story to cram into a single movie. The animation is first rate, clean lines, colours that capture the dark mood of a Gotham descended into a cesspool of crime and violence. The nuclear winter environment was really well drawn. And I'm glad the violence wasn't overly sanitized, there's lots of blood letting and brutality which did not feel gratuitous at all. Joker's murderous rampage from the methodically planned talk show audience massacare to his indiscriminate murdering at the fair grounds - how awesome was it to see him politely apologizing to the people in his path through the Tunnel of Love as he executed them one by one. And those creepy flying Bobbie and Mary poison gas spewing exploding robot dolls were sublime. And I was pleased they didn't overly sanitize the brutal fem-nazi Bruno character over allowing her to be topless with the memorable swastikas painted over her breasts (Although no view of her naked asscheeks like in the graphic novel).

The pacing was excellent. The dialog crisp. The score was perfect, fitting and not overwhelming.

The voice acting I'm split over.
