Batman: Year One (quick movie review)
I remember reading the graphic novel of the same name and being bored, but this flick blew me away. Maybe they added more detail… I don’t know, but Batman: Year One blew me out of my seat. In many ways, the story about Jim Gordon’s rise to commissioner is more interesting than what’s happening with Bruce Wayne, and that might be what makes the film so compelling. It’s very different than Batman Begins despite covering some of the same ground (and you’ll notice some elements that Nolan borrowed, such as the bat homing device), but it’s still a must watch for anyone who enjoyed Christopher Nolans’ Batman flicks. I give it an 8 out of 10.
Batman: Year One is available on Netflix Instant.
