Como sempre a DC fez uma ótima adaptação com esta história do Frank Miller, o longa traz uma das melhores histórias já escritas do Batman, da forma como gostamos de ver, agressivo e destemido.

An impressively loyal adaptation of one of comics' most important stories, complete with social commentary, nods at dark chapters of the character's history and a glut of wanton brutality. Despite being ripped violently into two pieces, the story still functions very well and reaches a natural climax in time for the credits to roll after a drawn-out 75 minutes. I fear the end result may be a less-dense arching plotline, especially as most of the political commentary was removed from this chapter (presumably as it won't be relevant until the second) but there's still more than enough pulp to go around. While the storyline is doggedly faithful (indeed, most of the dialog is copied verbatim from the source), the artwork is both influenced by and notably distanced from Frank Miller and Lynn Varley's amazing work on the printed page. And, while that does rob the story of some of its character, the result is suitable enough; fresh but also familiar. Peter Weller turns in some decent work as the voice of Bruce Wayne, but I couldn't help but daydream about how Kevin Conroy would have approached the material. Very good, if not perfect.

I like the premise but the plot didn't make sense to me sometimes. Also the whole mutant thing is silly, imo.

The only area in which _The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1_ suffers, is foretold in the title: This is just part one. You watch those two parts combined back to back? You've got the best superhero movie ever made.

_Final rating:★★★★½ - Ridiculously strong appeal. I can’t stop thinking abo More
