I forgot how much I love this movie.Batman Returns is a great parody to the comics let alone an awesome action/adventure film.This is one of my favorite films by Tim Burton.This is pretty much the last good Batman.The plot is great; I think it is stronger and darker than any of the others.I love Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman ; no matter what anyone says Michelle is the classic Catwoman and Halle Berry won't be able to live up to it.Michael Keaton, Danny Devito, and Christopher Walken also do a great job acting.The dialogue is pretty cool also.I really liked Gotham City in this one; it kind of looks like a Gothic city.I loved the final showdown in the movie.Make sure to check out this awesome movie.
In director Tim Burton's sequel to his successful BATMAN (1989), the Caped Crusador (Michael Keaton) is pitted against the demented, ravenous Penguin (Danny DeVito), a pitiful, orphaned psychopathic freak who once went on a baby-killing spree, and a "power" hungry capitalist villain Max Shreck (Christopher Walken). As the two criminals plot to gain domination over Gotham City, BATMAN must plot to stop them.In the highly stylized BATMAN RETURNS--complete with dark, Gothic architecture and moody lighting--Batman (and his alter-ego Bruce Wayne) is thrown a third enemy, a terrible distraction: Cat Woman (fearlessly and fabulously played by Michelle Pfeiffer). She is the slinky, sharp-clawed alter-ego of Shreck's secretary Selina. Batman must overcome his own dark past, and his present love entanglements, to rid Gotham of it's evil enemies, this time with even more intricately designed sets and tongue-in-cheek humor, making BATMAN RETURNS an action-packed, but darkly fun adventure.
"Darker, more brooding and weirder than the first Batman. It's also funnier and layered with more texture."
