Batman Returns Reviews

Ralph Novak
People Magazine

Batman Returns, though, is full of grim, Dostoyevskian undertones, not to mention a multitude of bloody, violent scenes.

Odd and sad, but not exhilarating.

Batman was no longer torn from the pages of a funny book, but peeled off the bottom of a pair of Dr. Martens.

More of the same, but nowhere near as good (funny, disturbing, obsessive) as the uneven original, revealing arrested development on every level.

Bigger, louder, more relentlessly action-packed than its predecessor, Batman Returns batters its audience into submission.

Cinema em Cena

O design de produção é inspirado e Keaton busca conferir peso dramático ao herói, mas o roteiro é pedestre e Pingüim jamais se torna um vilão interessante. Por outro lado, a sensualidade de Pfeiffer quase redime o filme. Quase.

Once again, Tim Burton ruins the Batman series with overly-campy crap. Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman is the only saving grace.

Like a hyperactive 11-year-old, the director seems both uncomfortable with adult emotions and unable to focus on the overall portrait.

It's the kind of film which has great stills but never quite comes alive when it actually moves -- likely to win at the box-office quicker than it does in the mind.

The fights and chases are incoherent and over-the-top, with the result being confusion rather than suspense.

DeVito and Pfeiffer make formidable foes and formidable fun.

While the film offers plenty of exhilarating action and features one of the best acting trios of the decade, it still falls short of what moviegoers have come to expect from one of the biggest comic book icons of our time.

As in the first movie, Burton gives the material a luxurious masked-ball quality and a sly contemporary wit without violating the myth's low, cheesy comic-book origins.

Even though fans of the 1960s TV show may reject its brooding atmosphere, this is still impressive stuff.

Absolutely the best of the "Batman" flicks, which is to say that it's just a little bit better than Burton's original and light years better than the wretched Parts 3 and 4.
