He will become the greatest crime fighter the world has ever known. But it won't be easy. Based on the groundbreaking story by Frank Miller (300, Sin City) and featuring the voice talents of Bryan Cranston, Ben McKenzie, Katee Sackhoff, Eliza Dushku, Alex Rocco and Jon Polito, this thrilling DC Universe Animated Original Movie reveals a bold and dynamic vision of the Dark Knight's first year in action and the start of his enduring friendship with Jim Gordon. With Gotham City in desperate need of heroes, two men take a stand for justice. . . but on opposite sides. Bruce Wayne returns home after years of training abroad in martial arts, science, detective skills and the art of hunting men. He's ready to become the thing in the night that all criminals of Gotham will come to fear. But at the same time, honest Lieutenant James Gordon moves to Gotham and finds corruption at every level.

Animated superhero drama is too intense for young fans.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this feature-length animated action movie based on Frank Miller's popular comic books is fairly violent and includes a shocking sequence in which a newborn infant is kidnapped and placed in danger. There's also the expected fighting and shooting (with some blood shown). The movie also includes some sexual content, with images of a red-light district and prostitutes, suggestions of an extramarital affair, and (in the accompanying short film) images of a strip club. The occasional strong language goes as far as "bitch" and "bastard."
