It is Glorious!
31 October 2013 | by (Rasht, Iran) – See all my reviews

Batman is my number one superhero, Always and Forever. I always follow movies, TV shows or video games, and everything came out about batman, with Scrutiny. And I'm not totally cool with making characters different than usual. Specially comic Superheroes, Specially seniors of them, and this "Specialty" is even more with The Dark Knight. I watched both part of "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns" with that background, And I realized; When they make it right... WOW! it could be Glorious! We can see this Glory and Greatness in this 150 minutes of "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns". I enjoyed watching these two parts. It was like something I was waiting for, for a long time.
