Bruce Wayne returns to Gotham, the home he hated for so long after the loss of his parents, only to find it in decay as criminals are on the rise. At the same time of his return, a new police officer from out of town, Gordon was promoted to Commissioner, and although he seems eager to end the decay of the town, he might still need a hand in doing so. Bruce starts to train himself to overcome his fears.
This movie will answer all and any questions you might have regarding the transition from Bruce to Batman. It has several scenes that are not included in any movie (not even Batman Begins), and it also gives you a perspective into Gordon’s life. We all know that he trusts Batman blindly, later on, but what brought these two together is the unanswered question. The drawings are beautiful and the music score is dead on. Not to mention that Bruce is voiced by none other than my favorite actor, Ben McKenzie.
While grave robbing, some criminals end up in resurrecting the lord of vampires himself, Dracula, who’s grave found its final destination in a cemetery in Gotham. Although at first hesitant in understanding who is this mysterious creature who has just appeared in his city, Batman has to deal with him, as well as the Joker and Penguin who seemed to want in on Batman’s defeat.
The movie comes down to a duel to define who the real “bat” man is.
This movie perfectly continues the road that was started with the Red Hood cartoon, previously mentioned. You see a deeper side of his; his friendship with Gordon and living together with some and all of the mistakes he has made in the past. Indeed Gotham needs a Batman, but is he the best man for that? This movie is for a mature audience. It is probably one of the best movies starring the bat, both the story and the graphics are amazing. But keep in mind that this story is probably not for everyone. Personally I didn't like it, but it was because I love 'love' stories and enemies I've already encountered.
