This set includes three films that chronicles the origins of Batman. I do not consider myself Comic-con material, but the Batman series is one of my favourite superhero series. To enjoy these films you should enjoy lots of action with a touch of humor at times and the ability to wrap up in a dark brooding super hero character. Here is a brief overview of the three films for those who do not know much about the legend or series.
The first film “Batman Begins” starts early in Bruce Wayne’s life at the scene of his parent’s murder. This event sparks him at a young age to travel the world seeking to right injustice. Bruce Wayne then later returns to Gotham City to reveal his ultra-ego Batman. He uses his strength, speed and high tech gadgets (thanks to a hefty inheritance!) to fight crime and sinister bad guys.
The second film, “The Dark Knight” picks up where we left off. Batman joins forces with Lt. Jim and the Distract Attorney to wage war on crime in Gotham City. They find themselves caught in The Joker’s tricks, one of the most iconic Batman series villains. Batman must save Gotham City as The Joker attempts to thrust Gotham into his somewhat mad anarchy.
The third film, “The Dark Knight Rises” picks up 8 years later and Batman has vanished. Batman is held responsible for the death of an important character from the second movie and has created a self-imposed exile. His pain is overwhelming and there is lots of suffering and brooding. The combination of two villains threatening the city forces him to put on his cape again and try to save Gotham from a crushing evil.

- 48 page hardcover book to rehash all the details of the films
