He also learns that his father was murdered in his absence and finds a disc containing data that suggests the true motive for the crime and the culprit, Derek Powers. Turning to Wayne as the only one he can trust, he learns that Wayne will not help him directly fight Powers. In desperation and without permission, Terry dons Wayne's last Batman outfit to challenge Powers himsef, but can he convince Wayne to help him in order to fight Derek Powers?

An Enjoyable TV Movie
28 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

'Batman Beyond' is a unique idea. Bruce Wayne (Kevin Conroy) hung up the Bat suit once and for all years ago but new kid on the block Terry McGinnis (Will Friedle) takes over the Batman identity in the not so distant future. Off course, it's a spin off from the hugely succesful 'Batman: The Animated Series' and this TV Movie takes the difficult job of introducing the new Batman, his real identity, new villains and the future itself. It's nowhere near as succesful as the original animated series and to be honest, although I loved the other feature length adventure 'Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker', this film and the TV series just didn't do it for me. The Bat suit isn't that great and I miss the bit for the mouth. All the gadgets are just too high tech for me even though it is set in the future. Terry McGinnis also seems very unlikable in this TV movie. He's a real smart *ss and very unlikable. That useless kid shouldn't be taking over the famous bat suit. Any kid but him. Of course, it does have it's good points. The overall look of the show is quite nice and I like the darker tone (although some is very weird). Will Friedle is great as the rather unlikable Terry McGinnis and, as always, Kevin Conroy is a great Batman. So, check it out but if you want to see Batman Beyond's real capabilities then check out 'Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker'. It's much better.
