The young protégé of one of the world's greatest superheroes has his first encounter with an old nemesis in this direct-to-video feature adapted from the popular animated series Batman Beyond. Terry McGinnis (Will Friedle) has taken over the crime-fighting responsibilities of Batman from aging Bruce Wayne (Kevin Conroy), but while Terry has learned a great deal from Wayne, he's never heard the startling truth about Batman's final encounter with his arch-enemy, The Joker (Mark Hamill). However, when The Joker returns to Gotham City as vicious as ever, Wayne decides that it's time that the new Batman learned all there is to know about the green-faced terror before he can bring the city to its knees -- especially after Bruce is attacked by his one-time rival. Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker also features the voice talents of Melissa Joan Hart and Angie Harmon. Upon its initial release, the movie sparked some controversy among Batman Beyond fans because of last-minute edits that toned down the violence level. However, it was eventually released on DVD in an uncut format.

I, personally won't buy this title untill WB releases an uncut version as envisioned by its creators. Paul Dini has revitalized the DC comics' characters and shown how an animated show can entertain all family members. He has captured the essence of the characters. The shows' artists have always kept up the excellent quality in their craft. It's not usual to have a show aimed at kids with good art direction, not to mention an intelligently scripted plot, just look at those tacky Power Rangers. I will rent this movie as soon as it comes out, because I'm dying to see the fate of the future Dark Knight and the sad past of Bruce Wayne. But like I said I won't buy this movie just yet.

I just saw this on HBO, never having seen it before. Mark Hamill should win an oscar for his voice of The Joker! He disguised his voice so well, I did not recognize it. Having seen the NEW Batman film, I have renewed my interest in all BATMAN films including the animated series. BRAVO MARK HAMILL!!!!!!!!!

Not as good as the script would indicate, but it still kicks some serious @$$!! Not the biggest ''BEYOND'' fan (the old school version is still the best) it is cool! If the WB! wants to make more money and make fans happy; release an un-edited version of the film. The way that, Paul Dini, that master BATscribe, intended!

this movie was great! Very well done,the story of what happened to tim drake was great taking it from the [revamped episodes]of batman the animated series. Though I thought they kind of of discluded Dick Grayson [original robin] this was great especially for batman beyond fans like me!!!!!!!!!
