I knew it was based on a comic series of a similar title, but I had never checked it out. I have to admit, I never saw it coming. I think I was all too pleased with Robin getting killed in the first five minutes, to even think about it. It's pretty obvious when you think of it, but the resurrection part with Ras caught me off guard, and was a nice explanation. I was also never aware of their being two Robins, and that DC actually let the fans vote for if they wanted the new one to die. They voted death. LOL.
I was gonna post this is the Red Hood thread but didnt wanna give anything away. Did you know anything of the storyline before the movie? And if not was it pretty obvious who the red hood was just by watching the first scene? That was my only minor gripe with the film. The opening would seem kind of random and obvious to anyone who hadn't seen it. But maybe I just made a mistake by reading up on the red hood before I saw the movie.
