REVIEW: I was thinking it was weird that Bruce Wayne was given a fairly serious girlfriend (just four dates, but Alfred remarks upon it) with a kid, but then they went to the movies (a Gray Ghost marathon, of course) and the three of them were then beset by an armed mugger. No need for a flashback. We all know what this is. It's happening again. And Bruce is desperate for it not to.
The crook shoots over their heads to show he means business, but the family survives the encounter. This time. Bruce leaves them to race after the thief, and as Batman, quickly figures out where he's going with his gold credit cards, and scares the living crap out of him until he's ready to confess his crimes to Bullock, who's never made such an easy collar. And from there, back to the theater where he has a nice chat with the kid, but learns his mom is very angry at Bruce for leaving them.
And so he destroys that relationship, a relationship that would probably never have worked as Alfred points out given that telling her the truth was never in the cards. The night when his parents died keeps taking things away from him. And in the end, this adventure ended for the good. The bad guy was apprehended, the stolen goods returned, and no one was hurt. Yeah, no one was hurt. Whatever you need to tell yourself, Brucie boy.
