      The Dark Knight Returns Part 2 is the spin-off of section one of the enlivened adjustment to Frank Miller's comic The Dark Knight Returns. As I would like to think, this film is pretty much as extraordinary as section 1. By and by, I appreciate this film somewhat superior to anything section one. That generally needs to do with Batman managing the Joker and Superman in this one.

      Dim Knight Returns Part 2 happens a couple of months after the occasions of section 1. Batman, played again by Peter Weller, has returned and is cleaning up Gotham with his sidekick Carrie Kelly a.k.a. Robin played by and by my Ariel Winter. Additionally, the mutant posse from section 1 has transformed into another gathering called the children of Batman, who now battle for Batman. Magistrate Gordon has resigned. The new chief taking his spot names him a criminal and issues a warrant for his capture. The administration likewise does not care for Batman returning so the president sends Superman to drive him over into retirement. The Joker likewise is lose again and wishes to take out Batman also. Batman needs to over come the chances and restore Gotham to request.

      I truly appreciate this film, considerably more than section 1. This is fundamentally in light of the fact that I discover the Joker and Superman to be preferable enemies over the mutant posse. The voice acting is useful generally. Dwindle Weller and Ariel Winter benefit work by and by. The individual who voices Superman, whose name escapes me, makes a fine showing. He is not tantamount to Tim Dale, but rather does fine.

      Then again, I am not a major aficionado of this Joker. His search does nothing for me, and neither does his voice. Michael Emerson voices the Joker in this. I am a fanatic of Emerson in Lost, yet here is execution as somewhat inadequate. General I loved him superior to anything John DiMaggio's Joker in Under the Red Hood. Notwithstanding, this Joker is still one of my minimum most loved Jokers.

      The workmanship and activity are the same as section one, no change. I thought it was fine by and large. The activity is awesome, principally the last fight in the middle of Superman and Batman. This battle is my most loved battle of both motion pictures.

      The best Batman animated freature ever ever produced!

      Part 2 of The Dark Knight returns continues almost exactly where Part one lets off.

      The Mutants gang has been disbanded following their leader's disgrace at the hands of the Dark Knight and now have split off into splinter groups. One of the biggest of these is The Sons Of Batman who paint blue bats on their face and who practice vigilantism.

      But this a dark world and dark times we are living in. As Batman more and more makes his presence felt in Gotham, old arguments begin to surface once more - is Batman a threat, a menace or a cure for society's ills? With Gordon now retired and a new Commissioner in place, a war breaks out between the Dark Knight and the forces of Law and Order as local Police strive to bring him in.

      Meanwhile, a certain caped superhero a few States away finds himself in consultation with a President who bears a striking resemblance to Ronald Reagan. He wants Batman dealt with. By any means necessary.

      Frank Millar's dark themes and undertones are brilliantly brought to the screen once more in what is a veritable tour-de-force for the Batman franchise. The old villain around which this story focuses is The Joker. Long incarcerated in a home for the mentally unstable, for the last ten years he has been in a fugue state, Batman's exploits reawaken The Joker's madness and it is not long before he is back out on the rampage again...

      All of this builds alongside the threat of nuclear war. America is being dragged into a conflict with Russia which does not look like it is going to end well. Superman finds himself draw into the conflict and, in one of the most amazing set pieces ever to be animated, finds himself facing the absolute limits of his power. I will not give anything away but there is one scene here above all else that absolutely begs to be watched. Recreated authentically and believably from one particular part of the graphic novel, truly you will never see anything like it again and will probably come as a big shock to those unfamiliar with the source material!

      Of course, the movies climax ends with probably one of the biggest battles ever to hit the screen. But we also get to see the consequences of that battle.

      I am not going to say anything more as I don't want to spoil anything but truly this second part lives up to the promise of part one and even, sometimes, exceeds it!

      If you only ever watch one animated Batman movie- make it these two films; part one and part two of The Dark Knight Returns.

      Arguably the best graphic novel ever written, now Dark Knight Returns is arguably the best Batman movie thast has ever ever been made!
