Batman: Year One is one of the most underrated DC animated films, and you know it must be good since WBHE did a re-release! The film was originally released back in 2011, so it’s been over 10 years since this bad boy dropped. After watching the film again years later, and with the film fully remastered, it’s still so damn good!
Batman: Year One is based on the comic created by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli. The film is about a young Bruce Wayne who returned to Gotham and starts his journey into becoming the super hero we all know, Batman. The young Batman and Lieutenant James Gordon team up together to stop the corrupt political system ruining Gotham City before things get worse.
I haven’t seen this film in so long, and it’s still such a great story. I always enjoyed stories of a young Bruce Wayne because they’re grounded, and I feel like we get the best stories when it’s grounded. Batman: Year One needs to get brought up more when it comes to best Batman films.
The cast for Batman: Year One is just top-notched! The film was already ahead of the game by casting Bryan Cranston as James Gordon, and of course he was just incredible. Also, I forgot that Ben McKenzie voiced Brue Wayne/Batman in the movie because holy hell was he great. And of course I can’t forget the performances of Eliza Dushku as Selina Kyle/Catwoman and Alex Rocco (rest in peace) as Carmine Falcone.
This is definitely a film that just has an overall great cast. If I even had to rate the cast, it’s an easy 10!
The animation for Batman: Year One Commemorative Edition is amazing. If you’ve seen the film already then you know that it already looked good, but it’s even better here. The film looks a lot more cleaner and crisp, so all the movements, interactions, and action will bless your eyes.
I loved the score as well and I feel like the movie even sounds better in this new edition. The music matches the tone of the film amazingly, especially when things get intense like when Bruce was disguised as a thug and things get crazy. Just one hell of job.
Batman: Year One Commemorative Edition reminded me how much I love this movie. A great story, amazing cast, great score, and an awesome looking film, it’s the complete package. Who knows? Maybe in 10 more years we’ll get a super edition.
You NEED to own Batman: Year One Commemorative Edition, especially if you’re a Batman fan.
