It almost seems unfair to compare this Batman with the recent Christopher Nolan reboots. Having said that, the mood of the piece is a nice mix of playful and dark and THAT catsuit almost steals the show. Having said that, it is almost as if Michael Keaton has a cameo in his own movie. 2.5 stars
Okay Michelle Pfeiffer was slinky in her cat uniform, Danny De Vito's make up was impressive, but the good news stops there. Mickael Keaton was so quiet he could have been on tranquilisers, the plot.....yawn.
Follows much in the same vein as the original, but is missing whatever spark the first one seemed to have. The supposedly outdoor city street sets are so tiny it gives the whole film a horribly claustrophobic feel; and having two villains leaves no time to properly explore either, and gives far too little of Batman himself.
There are some interesting ideas and themes here - they just weren't executed well. It looks terribly amateurish compared to modern comic book movies.
Michelle Pfeiffer was brilliant in the early scenes. When she changed into Catwoman, the movie went haywire and down the toilet. Michael Keaton is totally uncharismatic as Batman and Danny de Vito is waaay over the top. (what else could you do if you were playing the Penguin?????)
