About this movie

It is ten years after an aging Batman has retired, and Gotham City has sunk deeper into decadence and lawlessness. Now, when his city needs him most, the Dark Knight returns in a blaze of glory. Joined by Carrie Kelly, a teenage female Robin, Batman takes to the streets to end the threat of the mutant gangs that have overrun the city. And after facing off against his two greatest enemies, the Joker and Two-Face, for the final time, Batman finds himself in mortal combat with his former ally, Superman, in a battle that only one of them will survive.

An absolutely great story that looks at how tense things might actually be between government and vigilantes like Batman in a real world scenario... More than that, it's a look at the grit and darkness that drives the Caped Crusader. This story was originally written after decades in which Batman had been defined by campiness, along the lines of the 60's style Adam West TV version. The original graphic novel was a reset to the dark drama that made Batman awesome & this movie captures it well. Enjoy!!
