The animated adaptation of Frank Miller’s graphic novel Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 is an alternate, grittier counterpart of “The Dark Knight Rises” when the Dark Knight returns with similar cues throughout. The first part of the two-parter seem to follow the nicely-done storyline well, being presented with good animation – despite depicting the sporadic violent contents – and voice-acting performances – especially Peter Wellers – at DC Comics’ usual level, while retaining the same action-packed style with a darker taste. This is another of those DC Comics animated feats that are scaled next to the contemporary live-action films. Jay Oliva’s opening half of the animated adaptation is a methodically paced first parter which is respectful to the Frank Miller comic. Peter Weller’s voice lends perfectly to Batman and the grown up dialogue is a breath of fresh air from the stilted writing of many other direct to video offerings. The animation is a little Saturday-morning, but The Dark Knight Returns makes for a solid adaptation that manages to capture Batman’s fragility without jamming unwanted sentiment down your throat. It is a near-flawless animated version of Frank Miller’s classic tale from the late 80s that spawned the Tim Burton and latest incarnation of Batman. It’s long overdue for this story to have been told, though I would have preferred a cinematic version. However, this animated version is reminiscent of the HBO Spawn series, which remains the most underrated animated series ever. Very well done. I look forward to part 2.
