Batman Returns, though, is full of grim, Dostoyevskian undertones, not to mention a multitude of bloody, violent scenes.
January 1, 2000
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.

April 16, 2007
More of the same, but nowhere near as good (funny, disturbing, obsessive) as the uneven original, revealing arrested development on every level.
January 26, 2006
Bigger, louder, more relentlessly action-packed than its predecessor, Batman Returns batters its audience into submission.

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.
December 14, 2014
[Burton's] dark, melancholy vision is undeniably something to see, but it is a claustrophobic conception, not an expansive one, oppressive rather than exhilarating, and it strangles almost all the enjoyment out of this movie without half trying.
April 16, 2007
The fights and chases are incoherent and over-the-top, with the result being confusion rather than suspense.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
June 19, 2017
The strange, ambitious character work that comprises Batman Returns is wrapped in the perfunctory framework of a Tim Burton superhero film.
December 14, 2014
Director Tim Burton, apparently given a free hand to create a follow-up to the hugely successful 1989 Batman, marshals all his forces to create an elaborately melancholy ode to alienation.

DeVito and Pfeiffer make formidable foes and formidable fun.
January 1, 2011
A darkly violent take on the comic-book hero.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
July 5, 2005
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.
