Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 Reviews
It's not awful, but the first part of this adaptation of Frank Miller's much loved comic book, for the most part, moves at a very slow pace, with way too much set up and exposition than it needs. It's basically a drawn out teaser for part 2.
it's the first half of a two-parter chronicling Bruce Wayne's absence and resurgence as the Dark Knight
he's aging, a bit slower but can't escape the fact that Gotham still needs a protector
Gotham is being overrun by the mutant gangs, Commissioner Gordon is retiring, and Robin is gone
even a new and upcoming female Robin wants to help Batman
but he still faces public scrutiny; does Batman inspire people to save the city or fall into vigilante thinking? is he ultimately responsible for creating the very insane villains that he puts away?
there's no easy answer so Bruce takes it upon himself to get things done
an ok start
