Movie synopsis

Tim Burton's BATMAN, inspired by Frank Miller's graphic novel THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, is a Gothic, Wagnerian treatment of the Batman mythos that explains the origins of Batman (Michael Keaton) and his nemesis, the maniacal Joker (a ripe Jack Nicholson).Gotham City is a sunless, ominous haven for criminals, held in the corrupt grip of crime boss Carl Grissom (the ever-magnetic Jack Palance), and terrorized by a sadistic vandal and murderer known as The Joker. But it isn't long before a dark, mysterious caped crusader, who goes by the name of BATMAN, is on their trail and trying to thwart their evil doings. In this darkly entertaining retelling of the Marvel comic classic, ace photojournalist Vicki Vale (warmly and sympathetically played by Kim Basinger) is also on the trail--she wants to find out who Batman really is. Based on the popular comic book character created by Bob Kane for DC Comics; the story and tone have nothing in common with the popular TV series of the 1960s. Imaginative special effects and imposing, Gothic architectural sets dominate this visually graphic, stylish film. Keaton gives a brooding performance as the Caped Crusader and his interestingly understated alter-ego Bruce Wane. But is it Nicholson's Joker that steals the show, with his unnerving, brilliantly maniacal portrayal, especially in the context of his twisted relationship with Grissom's gal Alicia (a lanky, disquieting Jerry Hall).

The second best Batman movie ever

Created: 10/01/06
The only bad thing about this movie is that the Joker dies in the end. Each of the actors plays his/her role very well and the darkness of the movie conveys the world Batman hopes to save. When all seems lost to the scum of the earth, our only hope is Batman.

Jack is great as the Joker and twisted enough to bring the comic book to life. Keaton as the sophisticate Bruce Wayne makes the transition smoothly to the cool underpressure Batman without you thinking it ridiculous to hide his true identity.

Do yourself a favor and get this movie, then skip forward to Batman begins. Ignoring the two in the middle will make you happier, ignorance is blis for those two movies.

Good Precursor

Created: 05/03/07
I decided to buy this simply because I found the 2 disc special edition of Batman Returns a joy...decided to pick up the preceding film. A lot of the abject sadness of Batman Returns isn't there, but all of the early 90s Tim Burton charm is. The commentary and special features are also well worth it.

Still one of the best superhero movies today

Batman is Still one of the best superhero movies today

The original Batman movie was recently surpassed as my favorite Batman film by Batman Begins, but not by much.

This was the best Batman film of the original 4. Michael Keetan was a great original Batman, and Jack Nicholsan was perfectly cast as the Joker. This film captured what Batman is supposed to be, and became an instant hit without being cartoony.

Final Verdict:

5/5

Rent or Buy?: This is the only Batman film of the first 4 that I would call a must buy. Great movie that doesn't lose its magic.

IF YOU FIND THIS REVIEW HELPFUL PLEASE REMEMBER TO VOTE. Thank you.
