Directed by Jay Oliva (Warner)

Riding on the coattails of Christopher Nolan’s summer blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 is a straight to DVD adaptation of the gritty Frank Miller comic that inspired a generation of storytellers. After a ten-year absence, Bruce Wayne dons his cowl one more time to kick ass and take names against Gotham’s new breed of mutant criminals. It’s not hard to see the correlation between Miller’s prose and the Nolan brothers’ liberal borrowing of dialogue and plot points for their screenplays. But for fans of the recent silver screen adaptations, The Dark Knight Returns offers newcomers a chance to dip their feet into one of the franchises most canonized tales, while providing a faithful retelling for fanboys alike.
