    It’s not very well directed, is it? All the director had to do was stick with what’s on the page and it would’ve been great; in Frank Miller’s panels Batman was fluid, disappearing into the smoke and striking unseen. In this he’s running around like Homer Simpson, punching SWAT guys while they stand there waiting to be hit. Seriously, there have been way better directed Batman animations- how did this hack land Dark Knight Returns?

    The voice acting is also surprisingly disappointing for such an anticipated feature. I appreciate Romano’s interest in working with new people, but in the case of Batman animated stuff, the old phrase, “If it ain’t broke…” really applies here. For example, unless Bob Hastings has passed, he’s a natural choice for Gordon at this point.

    I REALLY think they could milk the story for a part 2 AND 3. AS much as I HATE studios “milking” things. This story is important to me. This and the Daredevil story “Born Again” got me BACK into comics as an adult in the 80′s.

    This seems clunky… and I have no reason to think that a lot of the things I found wrong with Part 1 are going to show up, mainly the way the Inner monologue was handled. Also, while I thought Peter Weller did a find job voicing a gruff, older batman, I think Michael Ironside would have been the beter choice, as shown by his performance as DKR Bats in the New Batman Adventures.
