This is my favorite Batman movie. Michelle Pfeiffer's performance was excellent.
Tim Burton's first Batman is great, but this is a much better film in so many ways! The direction, writing, acting, action, effects are all slicker. They spent over twice as much and it really shows.
Watching them both today, Batman feels Old now, whereas Returns… it's from '92, of course it doesn't feel New, but it feels more like newer films. In a good way.
I just saw both Burtons Batman movies. Let me just say that the first one, from '89, definitely isn't worth anyone's time, unless they're true TB fans.
This one, however, is worth everyone's. What a flick! Michelle Pheiffer absolutely steals the show as the split-down-the-middle catwoman, Keaton actually portrays Batman (a quality the first movie lacked), DeVito's portrayal of the villain deserves recognition (unlike Nicholson's Joker), and to top it all off - it has Christopher Walken (always a pleasure).
Great movie. Watch it!
PS: If I haven't already made it perfectly clear; you do not need to watch Batman (1989) to follow the plot. Not at all.
