Storyline

Twenty years after Bruce Wayne's retirement as Batman, the world has changed even as he retreats from it, ceding control of his company, Wayne-Powers Enterprises, to his partner, Derek Powers. In that world, Terry McGinnis is an ordinary kid whose father, Warren, works for that company. While Terry was out on the town, he has a chance encounter with Bruce Wayne and, his legacy as Batman. He also learns that his father was murdered in his absence and finds a disc containing data that suggests the true motive for the crime and the culprit, Derek Powers. Turning to Wayne as the only one he can trust, he learns that Wayne will not help him directly fight Powers. In desperation and without permission, Terry dons Wayne's last Batman outfit to challenge Powers himself, but can he convince Wayne to help him in order to fight Derek Powers?

Trivia

The VHS and DVD release was originally named "Batman Beyond: The Movie", which is a bit of a misnomer, as it isn't so much a movie as it is a collection of six episodes from the first season of Batman Beyond (1999). It contains "The Movie", which is really a merging of the two-part series opener called "Rebirth". At around 45 minutes without commercials, one could hardly call that a feature-length movie. Four other episodes trail the origin - "Golem" (misnamed "Gotham Golem" on the case), "The Winning Edge", "Dead Man's Hand", and "Meltdown" - none of them tying in much to each other, save for the same basic premise as spun off from the origin in the first episode. Later DVD releases eliminate "The Movie" from the title on the case and proclaim "6 Exciting Action-Packed Episodes" on the cover. See more »

Batman: The Next Generation
14 June 2002 | by mack3175See all my reviews

It's 30 years in the future, Bruce Wayne is in his mid seventies, and realizes he can't continue as Batman anymore, enter 16 year old Terry Mcginnis, a troubled youth who seems to have no fear of anything and always seems to have a nack for adventure. Batman got an upgrade. Great animation, and a great story line, cool action, and a great soundtrack. Kevin Conroy is great has the voice of Bruce Wayne. Will Friedle(best known from Boy Meets World) is also great has the voice of Terry Mcginnis. I hope they make a live action Batman Beyond movie.
