80/100

"Batman Returns" supera por mucho a su antecesora, gracias al buen trabajo de Tim Burton, en una historia mas oscura y algo retorcida, que se beneficia de las memorables actuaciones de Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Michel Pfeiffer y Christopher Walken y un solvente diseño de producción, que si bien se ha quedado atrás debido a lo conseguido por Nolan en su trilogía, sigue siendo una buena película del Murciélago de Gotham.

A superhero film that is actually an auteur's piece.

Michelle Pfeiffer saved this film as Catwoman! She is my favorite cat woman to date!

Often a little campy and too heavily dark to the point of being silly, but Batman Returns continues Burton's amazing take on the superhero with enough action to compensate

This is the best of all Tim Burton's Batman films. Danny Elfman played an equal part in creating the entire feel of the movie. The music and the visuals are captivating, and the acting was decent with big Hollywood names (which helps... except for Batman and Robin), and the plot wasn't too darn silly. Also, this is the hottest Michelle Pfeiffer we have on record.

Best Batman movie to date, even after 25 years

Started off pretty good, but then got kinda weird. Catwoman and Penguin were interesting characters.

Devito as Penguin, Walken as Shrek, and Pfeiffer as cat woman brings a good sequel to Burton's first film. Keaton reprises his role as Batman again. It is interesting that I never really bought Keaton as Batman, and the original suffered from lack of character development and engagement. I didn't enjoy the story line as much, it was a bit much and convoluted, and the penguin caper didn't quite work for me as an enjoyable or believable story line, but as usually, but it continues the theatrical Burton style with his flair and is a visual feast.

This was one of my favorite movies growing up and re-watching this as an adult it still holds up to my high standards. I've come to realize most movies directed by Tim Burton has an amazing score, dark comedy, blood, brilliant palette, and stands out. In my opinion, this is the best Batman movie and a must see!

It's not quite as good as the 1989 film, but Batman Returns is still fantastic, as well as one of the best alternative Christmas movies ever. Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, and Christopher Walken are all at the top of their game, and Michael Gough is once again fantastic as Alfred Pennyworth. Despite some overly dark subject matter, the film overcomes this with the help of Tim Burton's unique direction and a good script. Batman Returns isn't perfect, but it is a genuinely great movie.

Puntaje Original: 6.0

A pesar de contar con un Pinguino muy bien trabajado, Batman Returns resulta decepcionante por el tono infantil que le da Tim Burton.

Although not the most popular Batman movie, ( its more of a Tim Burton vehicle) I really enjoyed it. The world is more dark and gothic this time and you have 3 villains, the Penguin, Catwoman and Max Shrek who was made for this film. The plot is fairly good and its quite christmasy. Michelle Pfeiffer is ace and she has a great transformation from a quiet secretary too a sassy, athletic villain who oozed sex appeal.I wasn't as sold on Danny Devito but he is still solid.

This sequel did get more gothic than the last one. It was overall a good movie

Gotham never felt better and the star power in this one is off the charts. Danny Devito's portrayal of the penguin is the best to date and Keaton is still the best Batman on film. If this movie makes it's way back to big screen nation wide it could gross well over 100 million and give die hard fans a very good treat.

Flawed but still enjoyable adaptation of Batman, that while doesn't hold up as well in comparison to the "Dark Knight Trilogy", has a style that can't be denied. Keaton continues his solid work from the first one but receives mixed support from the cast. Danny DeVito is atrocious as the Penguin, playing him as a disgusting monster over the suave crime boss in the comics, and you never buy he can trick Gotham into voting for him as mayor. Thankfully, Michelle Pfieffer is electrifying as Catwoman, lighting up the screen ever moment she's on it (even her early moments as a bumbling secretary are hilarious). She even livens up Keaton, as the two show nice romantic chemistry and reminds everyone Catwoman is the best love interest for Batman (hence, why they're now engaged in the comics). Behind the camera, Tim Burton crafts a stylized & beautiful version of Batman that improves over the original and makes great use of the Christmas theme (Gotham looks gorgeous in the snow). However, the story is inconsistent and goes a bit out there at times (the image of an army of Penguins with rockets on their backs is ridiculous). There is a hint of the supernatural, which is interesting, especially with Catwoman suddenly turning into an acrobatic villain, along with seemingly being unable to die. Plus, Danny Elfman actually improves on his brilliant score from the first film. Overall, a flawed and not accurate Batman film, but enjoyable nonetheless. Plus, this & "Iron Man 3" are the only superhero Christmas movies we got so far.

A dark mood, incredible acting, Tim Burton's touch and two villains that don't feel forced in, this film works even if they are penguins with missile launchers attached to them
