Red Queen will make you re-think the phrase “just a fan film”…
Is there any other villain in comics more reknowned than the Joker?
Here’s VariantComics’ excellent look at the history of the Clown Prince of Crime…
REVIEW SUMMARY: A gritty, faithful adaptation of Frank Miller’s seminal graphic novel, The Dark Knight Returns.
BRIEF SYNOPSIS: An aging and retired Bruce Wayne sees his city spiraling down into crime and fear at the hands of Harvey Dent and a new threat, the Mutant Gang, forcing Bruce to reclaim the mantle of the Batman to bring order and justice back to Gotham.
PROS: Excellent animation, acting and storytelling; gritty and dark, channeling the original material well.
CONS: As dark as it is, the PG13 rating means most of the ‘in your face’ violence and themes of the original work have been watered down.
BOTTOM LINE: A fine addition to the growing library of Warner Brother’s Premiere / DC Animation titles. Well worth your time and money.
Here, Batman enemies, the Joker and the Penguin, have devised a seemingly diabolical trap for an surprising foe. But can you see the flaw in their plan?
