Excellent Movie. Finally got around to watching it even though it's been around a few years already. I really liked how they went into the Politics aspect of Batman. And Even in the DC Universe it seems as though Liberals still think Joker is a Good Guy hahahah. So Joker I heard you killed 600 people right? LIES THATS NOT HIS FAULT hahaha. Totally Leftist. Joker new Dam well what he has been doing. I also like how they showed just how Bad Bruce has PTSD. And the re run of the Mark of Zorro triggered the Batman personality to make a appearance. And man Batman was in a Bad mood hahah.

@Stevemagegod Dude, I'm pretty sure we're not supposed to bring up political bias on this site. In any event, I'd see Dr. Wolper's attitude as more of a symptom of personal and professional blindness. Think about it, the guy's a doctor. His job is to try and cure his patients, and to that end, he has to believe he can do it. If he accepts that it's impossible, he'd have to admit that he's failed, and that's not something anyone would find easy to swallow. So, naturally, he blames the person who, in his mind, has caused his patients to be the way they are. Never mind that there were other factors as well. Like I said, he's blinded on a personal and professional level, but he's well-meaning, and believes that he is doing the right thing, both for his patients, and the public at large. That said, I'm not going to deny I get a small feeling of satisfaction when he's proved horribly wrong. But that's still a horrible way to go - more-so in the comic.

One of Frank Miller's best works... until he went nuts and became an unlikable old man.

Anyway, I'm rather amazed how they translated the material from the comic to animation (Most of the comic anyway) The voice acting, for the most part was pretty dang good and it does capture the emphasis of the original graphic novel.

Of course as good a story this is, I can't help but feel it does a disservice to the Batman mythos, since it's this particular comic, as well as the Killing Joke and even Watchmen to a degree that DC keeps having this obsessive love affair with. So whatever source material the movies look to like with Christopher Nolan's Batman, it's mostly this one.

Otherwise, it's a genuinely good story (Not that great though, but still) and I'm happy this got adapted into a full animated film, even if it's separated into separate segments.

This was a pleasant surprise for me. Considering my general distaste of Frank Miller's work, I was more than surprised that this movie turned out pretty good.

The style of the movie is interesting enough and Peter Weller does a good job playing the older Batman. I also love the symbolism on how some things in people never change, from Batman to the very people he fought against.

I would have wanted to see more from Robin and, to be honest, the "expository news flashes" got old after a while. But with that said, I really enjoyed the movie. Definitely better than the last Miller-Batman movie "Year One" and FAR superior to the second movie.

Only real problems I had with these two movies was the Joker (the performance was great but I didn't care much for his characterization) and Alfred having such a small role. The old guy is an underrated part of Batman and no one even gave a crap about him kicking the bucket at the end. -_- Otherwise, I liked this film almost as much as Under The Red Hood.
