Movie Review: Batman: Year One (Blu Ray DVD)

Batman: Year One is the new direct-to-DVD animated movie from DC Comics and Warner Brothers Animation and is based of the critically acclaimed, and often borrowed from, story by comic book legend Frank Miller.

Batman: Year One follows two main plots over a selected period of time during the first year of Bruce Wayne’s run as the Batman and Jim Gordon’s fight for justice within the Gotham Police Department.

Just like in the Nolan films we get to see a young Bruce Wayne come back to Gotham City and start his crusade against crime by becoming a terror in the dark known as the Batman. Jim Gordon and his wife Barbara arrive from Chicago to Gotham as a place for Jim to start over and reset his police career.
