It's rated PG-13, as was its predecessor, but it's full of gore and pain and trauma...A worthy finale.
A fully-realized achievement that does right by fans of the source material and is the new standard of excellence for Warner animated films.
It sets a standard that few can beat.
With much bigger reveals and a faster pace, "The Dark Knight Returns: Part 2" is leaps and bounds better than the first part, which itself was a very good film. The Justice League has existed in the past, the Joker is on the rise for one last fight, and older Superman is there as a watchful protector, and will do anything to help, even if that something is taking on the Batman. This film explores the dark character he has become even more and the action is much more fearsome. I was hooked into every second of this finale. This is a two part event that I truly think is unmissable, even for casual fans.
Miller's take on Batman and Superman are a little disconcerting: I kept waiting for Batman to totally own the Joker, but it never happens. Supes has his hands full with a nuclear bomb. These heroes have to work to win, and work hard. It was a game changing perspective and thereby made this the most distinctive animation of the DC/Warner Brothers canon. Must see.
Perfectly adapted, there's really very little to complain about. The animation is stellar and just like Part1 the voice acting and dialogue is remarkably well done.
The only gripes anyone would have with the film is in fact the comic-book pacing and division of story archs (The Joker and then finally the showdown with Superman) but I'd rather they stayed loyal to the book than attempt their own retelling.
An awesome and thrilling action-packed adventure that concludes the rest of this terrific story nicely and finally shows an epic long-awaited battle between the old and battered, Batman and Superman.
