Batman has not been seen for ten years. A new breed of criminal ravages Gotham City, forcing 55-year-old Bruce Wayne back into the cape and cowl. But, does he still have what it takes to fight crime in a new era?
A LIGHTER TOUCH NEEDED FROM THE STAR IF THIS IS TO CONTINUE.
This brave attempt at turning Sir Walter Scott's hero Ivanhoe into a franchise similar to HERCULES and XENA will have a lot of work to do to even begin to rival those two wonderful shows. It doesn't help that many of those involved in making it were also responsible for the dire HAWK THE SLAYER,one of the worst sword and sorcery movies ever made.Whilst "DARK KNIGHT" is better than that travesty it still does nor bear comparison to such lively and thrilling shows as SINBAD and ROBIN HOOD.One problem that needs to be adjusted if this series is to continue is that star Ben Pullen should try to lighten up a bit;he is far too serious in demeanour and does not bring anything like the zest that Roger Moore brought to the role of Ivanhoe in his series of the 1950's.He should work on this as other characters steal the show which should not be the case as they are not especially well played themselves. I hate to disparage any show that has as many fight scenes as this one does and it does not fall short in the action quotient but with a little more effort from those behind and in front of the camera there could be something memorable here.
