Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (Parts 1 & 2) are a pair of animated movies from Warner based on Frank Miller’s seminal Batman reboot graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns (1986). In it we see an aging Bruce Wayne take on just about everybody. He has a rumble with a murderous new gang terrorising Gotham, Superman and even the government of the United States of America. Although the animated movies do well to untangle the labyrinthine plot of the comic book into a more coherent story, some of the impactful artwork of the original is lost in translation to the screen. I did enjoy the movies, but it doesn’t feel like a keeper. In all honesty, I prefer the retrofuturistic, streamliner look of the animated TV series Batman: The Brave and the Bold (2008-2011).
