As Robin might have said of this semi-boondoggle: "Holy overkill!"
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 1, 2000
A triumph of design over story, style over substance - a great-looking movie with a plot you can't care much about.

Tim Burton is a genius when it comes to set design and atmosphere, but he can't film an action sequence to save his life.

I guess I did not expect better, but I had hoped for it nonetheless.
April 16, 2007
The conceptual side of the movie--two rather sick two-sided antagonists having it out in a black and sordid context -- lingers.
July 1, 2012
While Keaton and Nicholson are dazzling in their roles, Burton never quite finds much to explore with Bruce Wayne, and that's wasted potential.
June 5, 2008
A void of underdeveloped style and halfhearted execution.
Full Review | Original Score: C

Supposedly a superhero movie for grown-ups, this is actually a pretentious farrago.
July 25, 2005
Despite a handful of good minor performances -- Michael Gough is the definitive Alfred -- and despite some striking bits of music from Prince, it really has nothing of its own to offer.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 19, 2003
Overly dark, broody, and campy. A disservice to the classic TV show and the more serious comic series.
| Original Score: 2/5
September 7, 2003
Bring back Adam West.
| Original Score: 1/5
April 9, 2003
Gloomy and not particularly entertaining
| Original Score: 2/5

The story is a mess… Scenes and lines of dialogue make no sense… Keaton makes hardly any impression in the role, in or out of the mask.

A celebration of form over story

Wow. I can't believe how little I enjoyed about this movie after all of these years of NOT having seen it.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

The wit is all pictorial. The film meanders mindlessly from one image to the next, as does a comic book. It doesn't help that the title character remains such a wimp even when played by Michael Keaton.

Is it interesting? Fitfully. Is it fun? Not much, Gotham City fans, not much.

In the end, one's reaction to Burton's blockbuster is little more than that of the Joker to Batman: 'Where did he get those wonderful toys?'
July 6, 2015
Batman is a stunning achievement, especially through the incredible and unique visualization of director Tim Burton.
