Part II Doesn't Live Up To Part I, Except For Sanderson
After a great first part, this conclusion of "Heart Of Steel" was a little too formulaic and just was not what I had hoped it to be. The first part featured a variety of interesting villains which came in all sizes and shapes. It included a robot disguised as a deadly briefcase!
This conclusion was still action-packed and should keep anyone's attention but was mainly just physical battles between Batman and the human clones.
It also had a very contrived part with Commissioner Gordon's daughter, who had never done anything except take her teddy bear around, turning into some unrealistic heroine. It was noble, but too much of a cliché.
I did like William Sanderson's voice. He played "Rossum," the guy who invented the computer which turned almost human and got carried away with its mission. At first, I couldn't place Sanderson's voice. Then, it hit me: he was a villain in the western "Crossfire Trail" and the crime movie, "Last Man Standing." He plays a good villain, but he's not a villain in here. Sanderson has done a lot of TV work and has a long resume. A lot of voices in these Batman animated episodes are veteran TV actors.
