Product Description

Product Description

Batman Returns: Special Edition (Dbl DVD)

The first Batman sequel takes a wicked turn with the villainous exploits of the freakish and mean-spirited Penguin (Danny DeVito), whose criminal collaboration with evil tycoon Max Shreck (Christopher Walken) threatens to drain Gotham City of its energy supply. As if that weren't enough, Batman (Michael Keaton) has his hands full with the vengeful Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer), who turns out to be a lot more dangerous than a kitten with a whip. As with the first Batman feature, director Tim Burton brings his distinct visual style to the frantic action, but this time there's a darker malevolence lurking beneath all that extraordinary production design. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By A.P. Fuchs, author of The Axiom-man Saga on Sept. 25 2007
Format: DVD
A mysterious “penguin man” surfaces and takes the city by storm, so much so that evil business tycoon Max Shreck, played by Christopher Walken, thinks he can turn Penguin into the city’s new mayor. But Penguin is not all what he seems and he secretly controls the Red Triangle Gang, who are wreaking havoc across the city.

Adding to the mix is one Selina Kyle, Shreck’s lowly assistant, er, secretary, who, after a bad night with her boss, becomes Catwoman.

The Bat Signal shines and the Dark Knight returns to once again rid Gotham of chaos and restore order.

Michael Keaton is back as Gotham’s Guardian and brings to the role all the mystery and edge that made the ’89 movie so popular. What’s even better is that this movie actually has Batman in it and the vigilante appears, clad in black armor, more than just four times like in the previous flick.

Danny DeVito as the Penguin does a great job given what he had to work with. Though the Penguin in this film is not the same as the one in the comics, DeVito still did well portraying a man who was born . . . a little different.

Michelle Pfeiffer pulls off the dual role of Selina Kyle/Catwoman nicely. In fact, she plays four distinct roles in this film, all in one character: nerdy Selina, hip Selina, crazy Selina and Catwoman.

This film is filled with action, darkness and fun, all set in Tim Burton’s eerie Gotham City, which was a character on its own in this film and its predecessor.

It’s the hokey plot that’s earning this film a lower rating than the previous one. Had the story been better, this movie had the potential to be one of the best superhero flicks ever.

Micheal Keaton returns as the Batman and Tim Burton is once again directing him in the role. With Danny DeVito as the super villain Penguin, Michelle Pfeiffer as the Catwoman and Christopher Walken as a ruthless business tycoon, there are plenty of powerful antogonists to keep the action moving. As is typical of a Tim Burton movie, the scenary of Gotham City is dark and dreary. Even though it is Christmas, the city remains largely without light.
There is a love/hate relationship between Batman/Keaton and Catwoman. She is a woman that plays very hard to get, one minute she is snuggling to him and the next she is trying to slash Batman with her claws. It is clear that Batman loves her and recognizes her as the tycoon’s administrative assistant.
The Penguin is very well played by DeVito, the success of hero films is largely determined by the power of the villain, rather than how the hero is played. The hero can show weakness, as Batman does in this movie, but the villain cannot.
As is the case with all franchise movies, there is a significant difference in the quality of the Batman movies. This is one of the better ones, Burton is great as a director and the antagonisms between the foursome keep the action moving. There are shifting alliances, the potential for a great deal of back-stabbing and ways in which Batman can save the day and the city. You both hope he gets the girl and prefer that he doesn’t.

Re-watching the two Burton "Batman"s I was shocked to find I liked "Batman Returns" more than the 1st. True, the film has nothing to compare with the wonderful over-the-top craziness of Jack Nicholson as the Joker, but in some ways Nicholson so overpowered the 1st film that it felt out of balance. At the same time, and – for me – even more problematic were the very un-Tim Burton like touches (the Prince songs? the endless, not very exciting climactic battle, the weak CGI) that seemed grafted on to make some studio executive happy.

"Batman Returns" seems much more a Tim Burton film; weirder, more perverse, funnier and more unpredictable than its predecessor. While the film lacks Nicholson's magic, it gains a great, funny, and twistedly sexy performance by Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman, her dark, dual personality mirroring Batman/Bruce Wayne's schizophrenic existence, and drawing these two "enemies" together like moths to flame.

Also fun and often fascinating are Danny DeVito's so pathetic you could almost like him, but so dark he's unredeemable Penguin. And Christopher Walken is a blast comparatively underplaying evil capitalist billionaire Max Schrek.

The film looks gorgeous, arguably better than the first. And if the production design can't match the grandeur of Anton Furst's sets for "Batman". these have a lot more Tim Burton surrealist fun-house/nightmare aesthetic.

What's missing is much of a clear plot, story elements coming and going a bit randomly. And, like the first film, "Batman" himself is made less interesting than the bad guys. But Burton has always been at his best exploring outsider characters, and creating nightmare dreamscapes, and he gets to do a lot more of that here. As one critic put it; this is a somewhat weaker "Batman" film, but a much better Tim Burton film.

in my opinion this sequel is as good as the first in all respects except for one one small complaint.well, actually enough of a complaint to lower the rating by half a star.the action is probably better with better fight scenes.Batman's costume seems a bit darker to me,which is a good thing.the acting is great as in the first one.Danny Devito is stellar as the homicidal Penguin and he clearly loved the role.Michelle Pfeiffer plays Cat Woman and is quite the sight to behold,in a good way.Michael Keaton returns as the caped crusader/Bruce Wayne and again brings a great understated broodiness to the role.the film is generally dark in tone,maybe more so than the first,and there is more a sense of urgency and jeopardy to it.occasionally,it slips into a kind of magical,almost whimsical tone,which is also good.there's a bit more chaos in this one.but not so much that it detracts from the film.but there is the one complaint i me,Danny Devito(the Penguin) seemed to be wearing very apparent padding to make the character appear fatter than he was.this bothered me some and took me out of the movie,if only for brief moments.still,that was enough for me to give it half a star less than,in my opinion "Batman Returns"is a very strong 4.5/5
