    I was at one of my local Wal-Marts and I saw a copy of "Part 2" on shelves. It looks like Warner has put bilingual packaging on these releases but just on the back not on the spine of front. I wonder why they started doing this now after so long. I'm not a fan of bilingual packaging but at least it wasn't intrusive here.

    Wal-Mart tends to release these DC Universe movies early for some reason.

    Already saw the film a few weeks ago. It may be the most violent of the DCU animated films but it's still the finest and best movie ever made from the cast to Christopher Drake's music score! Kevin Conroy may be the signature voice of Batman but Peter Weller's performance as the older Batman/Bruce Wayne out performs him fantastically! His performance made this animated film work! Michael Emerson's Joker was chilling and fabulous and much more believable than John DiMaggio's Joker from "Under The Red Hood" When you watch it you forget this is an animated film. I've never read the book but this movie makes up for it! Part 2 is no.1 on the my favorite DCU Movie list!

    You say po-TAY-to, I say po-TAH-to

    Well, I've only seen part 1 and clips from part 2, but I disagree about Peter Weller's performance. It is good, but not great. In fact, I find it a bit flat. Kevin Conroy would have nailed it. Probably, Bruce Greenwood as well.

    Well, if you can't watch it in your living room with the kids around, maybe you could watch it on the laptop or something.

    Yeah, I could do that but I buy Blu-ray cause DVD just doesn't sound or look as good, and my laptop is DVD only. :(
    But Thanks again for the help Gold Guy, I really appreciate the suggestions and input. :) But after thinking about it, I do have another question for someone who has seen the movie, is the language really bad? Or is it about the same as what all the other DTVs were. As I imagine I probably could watch it on my big screen if the
    are not on the screen for very long. But if the language is too much, then I will definitely have to watch it elsewhere.

    Wow, you can't use tobacco in these movies? That's dumb. Also, yes, Bruno is indeed topless in the movie. No nipples are shown, though. The violence is also a bit high up there.

    Thanks Jacob, I will probably buy it and hope that the language is at least not too bad. I'll just tell everyone to leave me alone while I watch a movie where
    lol.

    True, but I don't ever use the DVD's, as they aren't as good as Blu-ray, and I pretty much only watch DVD when there is no other option, lol. But thanks for the info either way mrbean. :)

    I'd say it's well worth the PG-13 rating.


    That said, it's very, very good. Even better than part 1. I wasn't taken with Joker's voice, but everyone else, including Peter Weller were excellent. The action relentless, direction spot-on, animation pretty good (a bit bare in places) and the music was fantastic.

    I'm not sure that Bruno qualifies as a woman. I believe that the character is transgendered. Does it matter if he/she is pre- or post-op?
