User Review

The Dark Knight Returns

Rating: 10/10

Out of all the Bat-films, Batman Returns is my favorite. This beautiful,
dark, and funny film is one of Tim Burton's best work. Although it is much
violent and darker, this is the Batman that creator Bob Kane envisioned
many
years ago. Michael Keaton reprises his role as the avenger of Gotham
City.
This time he's up against two deadly foes, Danny Devito's Penguin and
Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman. With a great cast and film score by Danny
Elfman, the movie takes us on an adventure as Batman battles the evil
forces
that are trying to take over Gotham City. Christopher Walken makes a
great
appearance as Max Shrek, a shrewd businessman who has an evil scheme up
his
sleeve. But of course, Michelle Pfeiffer is the one that steals the show.
With all of these components, you have a film that will blow you away.
This
is the reason why you go to the movies. It's got everything. It's really
a
shame that Tim Burton didn't get to direct the other sequels. If so I
think
the franchise would still be going strong today. Batman Returns is an
awesome experience for fans that like cool movies.
