Movie Summary

Director:
Tim Burton (I)
Released:
1992
Rating:
PG-13

Batman Returns is a sequel to the 1989 film Batman, both of which were directed by Tim Burton. The film is focused on the events unfolding around Batman (Michael Keaton), and newer additions to Gotham City including Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer) and the Penguin (Danny DeVito). The Penguin is not difficult for Batman to understand; abandoned in the sewers as a child, Oswald Cobblepot is warped and deranged beyond repair. He arises from the sewers in the beginning scenes of Batman Returns and blackmails the powerful Max Shreck (Christopher Walken) into having him elected as mayor. However, Catwoman is a completely separate issue. Her alter ego, Selina Kyle, was thrown from a building by Shreck following her discovery of his plans to illegally dispose of pollutants. She is revived by a group of cats, but with the somewhat villainous burden of also living as Catwoman. Batman is then forced to battle the Penguin and Catwoman, while also foiling Shreck's dangerous plan for toxic waste disposal.

  • Batman is back

    5.0
    Again, a Batman movie by Burton - and his mark can be easily seen. Funny and dark, but not too exciting, scary, or twisty when it comes into a plot, though a lot of things do happen. At places there are sufficient amounts of character development, but mostly people are just thrust together with their lines. Keaton as Batman is barely convincing , and short of amazing; one mean look on his face and depending on the suit is about as much as he can deliver. All in all, I would have expected more from this movie (seems like my child time memories led me wrong ^^).moreless
