Noutions Good movie, but best of all time? Hardly . . .
StyleSk8r At first rather annoying in its heavy emphasis on reenactments, this movie ultimately proves fascinating, simply because the complicated, highly dramatic tale it tells still almost defies belief.
Jakoba True to its essence, the characters remain on the same line and manage to entertain the viewer, each highlighting their own distinctive qualities or touches.
williamsonandcompany Jack and Michael were the best fit for this film! Jack is the best joker because he is not sadistic like the new ones. Good story and had humor, plus made me leaving the theaters feeling good, not wanting to kill myself like the new one.
undeaddt This, alongside Blade Runner 1982, are some of the visaully best made movies of all time, even tho they were made 30-40 years ago. The city is gloomy, dark, misty and dead in some way. The scenery throughout the whole movie is details, details and details. Also the bat mobile is so classy, it even looks better than the modern one in the later movies. This is my favourite comic character and after watching this first movie (I know, I am ashamed I haven't watched it until now), I understand why he is to many, many others. For me, Michael Keaton is nowhere near Christian Bale's roleplay, but hey, he was the first one and he did his work greatly. On the other hand, Jack Nicholson is by far the best joker ever. There doesn't exist a more fitting person for the Joker than him. He gets so deep in the role, you think that actually he is like that all the time, in private life also. His 24/7 grim is off the hook. altho I think that they could've made his face a bit more "destroyed" by the acid. This movie rightfully won an oscar, 7/10 for me.
benjaminburt Tim Burton's Batman holds up surprisingly well after all this time. The action, sets, acting, score, and casting are all excellent. It was definitely a cultural phenomenon bringing an icon to life after the long-lived campy Adam West Batman series.If you're looking for modern action on par with things like the Bourne Ultimatum, the Dark Knight, or John Wick, you're not going to find it in Batman (1989), but you will find an enjoyable product of the time. Consider that Die Hard came out the year prior. Die Hard was awesome, but you have to admit that most fight choreography wasn't especially kinetic or intense. Batman is old, but, if you take it as it is, it's a really enjoyable super-hero romp that is both tense and dark and campy and fun.
Ilikehorrormovies Honestly I'm not a big fan of the SuperMan movies but this one the the cake. I like the dark tone of this film. Tim Burton was the greatest choose as the director as BatMan like it's dark, and gritty. I'm glad I got this film like I really like beside Christopher Nolan's BatMan like just saying like just because BatMan Begins (2005) have a higher score than this movie doesn't mean it's better I'm not saying those movies are bad their awesome like this film.Score: 8.5/10
