Excellent animation

Part 1 was good but part 2 was great. I haven't seen many Batman animations and this just makes you want to watch more.

The plot is great and dark, the way it should be. There is plenty of action (shooting, fighting, chases). Two epic battles, just non stop action, bloody action as well.

The animation looks great and it sounds great too. This was really enjoyable and extremely well made, one of the best animations I have ever seen. Batman, Superman, Joker - What more do you need?

Well worth watching, this is one not to be missed.

The continuation of the Return of the Dark Knight

The first part to the two-part The Dark Knight Returns was great, so the second part had a lot to live up to. It didn't just live up to it, it was even better, more developed in story and more refined in detail. The animation was great in both movies, but Part 2's style is more fluid and detailed and like the first part never loses it in the atmosphere and the quality of the colours. Speaking of the atmosphere, it was hugely compelling, being often intense in how it was written, how it looked and its brutality. The music further adds to the atmosphere, with rich orchestral writing and haunting composition, it enhances each scene and never detracts from it. It is also composed in a way that doesn't jar with the style of the music for the first part. The Dark Knight Returns: Part 2 is brilliantly written too, it maintains the spirit of the source material and the dialogue show real intensity and conflict. There is a thrilling story too, that leaves off from the first part but is written in such a way that it stands very well as a stand-alone. The storytelling is deeper emotionally and more developed structurally, with a lot of tension and atmosphere, but not to the extent that things get convoluted. The action-sequences are unrelenting and nail-biting, violent and tense in alternative to goofy and cartoonish they all work, with the final battle between Batman and Superman standing out. The characters are well-written and draw you into the story, Joker is genuinely menacing while you identify every step of the way with Bruce Wayne. The appearance of Selina Kyle and how she's animated is a shock though if I were to admit. The voice acting is terrific, Peter Weller is brooding and quite moving in the titular character role and Michael Emerson at first is subtly evil but becomes increasingly maniacal in a characterisation that recalls Jack Nicholson's somewhat. Overall, enthralling conclusion and one of the better animated Batman movies along with Mask of the Phantasm and Under the Red Hood. 9/10 Bethany Cox

Goes back to the source - which...

This star rating is generous. As much as the animators are doing wonderful work, I didn't enjoy it as much as the first volume - and same went for the original Frank Miller comic. To my memory, this was VERY faithful to that, minus the narration being gone. Maybe that changes things, but I don't think so. It should be fine for most fans hoping to see what they loved brought to this form of cinematic life. For me, it's fine, but not much more, grit and apocalyptic stakes and all.

The animation work is still among the strongest and coolest in the DC animated cannon, but the logical gaps in Miller's storytelling - which I think Christopher Nolan carried over a bit too much into his Dark Knight trilogy (or to put it another way, he learned about as much as he could from Miller, all the good AND the bad) - are too much to ignore, even when he does some clever things like the satire with Superman (he has a friggin' Bald Eagle perch on his arm and fights the Ruskies almost single-handed! Take THAT Dr. Manhattan!) and a couple of cool touches.

Where's the *detective* when you need him?
