5.0 out of 5 stars Very faithful to the original comic book Oct. 20 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Even though the title story is only 64 minutes it is extremely faithful to the original comic story and didn't edit much. The artists lifted a lot of the imagery and dialogue right from the comic panels. The voice acting is well done all around.

I also enjoyed the Catwoman short on the disc. Neither of these titles are for kids though. The PG-13 rating is accurate.

The extras on the disc don't add much. Except for sneak peeks with little video and the rest are talking head collages. Unfortunately none of the talking heads are Frank Miller who was one of the original authors.

I only give 5 stars to films that I will watch repeatedly and Batman: Year One is such a title. Well done Warner Brothers.

Warner Bros.Animation and DC Comics presents "BATMAN:YEAR ONE" (2011) - (64 min/Color) -- Starring: Bryan Cranston, Benjamin McKenzie, Eliza Dushku, Jon Polito, Alex Rocco, Katee Sackhoff, Jeff Bennett, Saratoga Ballentine

Directed by Lauren Montgomery, Sam Liu

Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli's seminal comic book series, Batman: Year One, follows the original story of the graphic novel series, makes its way to the animated small screen with this Warner Premiere production. Enjoy the panel by panel illustrations, brings into focus that Batman is now being targeted more than ever to the adult readers. This Warner Premiere movie is totally aimed for the fans of the graphic novel. Gave me chills to see this on the screen, as this has always been one of my favorite tales from the Dark Knight years.

The story follows James Gordon (voice: Bryan Cranston) during his early years on the force just as the vigilante Batman (voice: Ben McKenzie) targets both the corrupt police officials and the crime-ridden streets for a clean-up - another good voice supporting cast Eliza Dushku (voice: Selina Kyle / Catwoman), Jon Polito (voice: Commissioner Loeb), Alex Rocco (voice: Carmine Falcone), Katee Sackhoff (voice: Sarah Essen), Jeff Bennett (voice: Alfred), Saratoga Ballentine (voice: Skeevers' Attorney) - Job well done!

* Special Footnote: -- Some outstanding reviews by other reviewers on this page, very detailed and informing, invite you to read them and vote "yes", if you agree ... DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation should follow-up with another original movie 'Dark Knight Returns', with the same professional staff and or similar voice actors.

3.0 out of 5 stars The title says it all! July 2 2012
By John Thomas Anderson TOP 50 REVIEWER
Batman Year One is another one of those small OVA's/Mini-Movies that both DC and Marvel do so well. Each company has well over half-a-dozen now and of them all, this one has got to be the grittiest and most down to earth of the bunch!

It's basically a very faithful reproduction of the Year One Graphic Novels by Frank Miller back in '87 that along with the Dark Knight re-invigorated the Batman Universe by taking him back to his darker past. And a dark and gritty past it most certainly is!

Forget about the Justice League or Superman or high tech gadgets. This is a city and a Batman that could actually exist! The most high tech gadget Batman has here is a motorcycle. This is a Gotham City along the lines of Tim Burton's '89 Batman movie which most likely was heavily influenced by this very same story line! A city where right does not always prevail and many have lost all hope. A Batman origin story more along the lines of Sin City!

The movie basically comes down to two main origin stories combined into one. One story line is the arrival of a dark and brooding Bruce Wayne intent on justice but not knowing how to even start. And the equally important second story line is that of a disillusioned Detective Gordon; an honest cop in a corrupt and disfunctional city where half of the police force is worse than the criminals! There's also a gritty smaller origin story on Catwoman thrown in here as well.

Overall, this movie is a bit too dark and angsty for my tastes; but it is very well told and done. Not surprising considering it's a very faithful rendering of the original graphic novels. The movie is also a bit on the short side running at just 64 minutes. But they do partially compensate for this by throwing in a full-featured 15 min.

A wonderful adaptation of the comic book! Always fun to come back to the bat's roots! The Catwoman short story was also an unexpected pleasure...

5.0 out of 5 stars An Awesome Origin for the Batman! Dec 30 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
4.5 out of 5

After spending many years abroad, Bruce Wayne returns to Gotham City to fulfill the vow to rid it of crime that he made to his deceased parents when he was a boy. At the same time, Chicago cop James Gordon moves to Gotham to start with the GCPD. Soon, Bruce adopts the identity of the Batman and makes war on Gotham's crime families, with James Gordon hot on his tail as the cop tries to take down the vigilante crime fighter.

I love origin stories. The mythology of characters, their history, their motivations, the events leading up to the creation of a super identity--all of it's gold in my book. Batman: Year One is such a story, giving you not only Batman's origin, but the chance to walk a mile in his shoes during his first year as a crime fighter. You get to see him test the waters, make mistakes, have some wins and losses, and watch as he earns the trust of Gotham's finest.

This movie is a down-to-earth story about Batman and James Gordon, very much a crime story versus a superhero-vs-supervillain tale. Batman deals with real world criminals in real world ways. You also get a glimpse into the hard life he leads, what he gives up to be Batman, and how he balances life as a fool in the public eye so he could be a fear to the criminal underworld at night.

You also get to see a different side of James Gordon, the marriage trouble, his humanity, and the plight of being a good cop in a bad town. His portrayal makes him every bit a hero as Batman in this story.

This flick is based on the one-shot comic book by comics superstar Frank Millar and matches the book's style for the most part, really bringing it to life.
