      ... In this Batman -- very different from Nolan's, Burton's or Schumacher's -- everything seems more appeased, more contained, more... human. [Full review in Spanish]

      They turned revealing an antagonist's presence to the audience without the victim's knowledge into a suspense-driven art. Here, Reeves taps directly into these tactics to phenomenal effect...

      This is the ultimate Batman movie.

      Full Review | Original Score: 5/5 | Jan 6, 2023

      Batman's superpower has always been that he's the smartest guy in the room. ... His title as the Dark Knight Detective has never been showcased on film as well as it was in The Batman.

      It may take three hours for Bruce to learn this lesson, but it's an incredible three hours. It may be fun to watch Pattinson put on black make-up and strap into the Batsuit to fight some bad guys, but there's much more to this story than just that.

      Full Review | Original Score: 9.8/10 | Dec 30, 2022

      THE BATMAN exceeds my expectations and passes the bar of a reboot. It justifies its own existence with great storytelling, insights into humanity and human society, and powerful performances.

      “The Batman” reaches for an ingenious and compelling new way to tell a story about the thin lines between corruption, greed and nobility — but ever so limply and always just out of its grasp.

      Matt Reeves’ The Batman brings us closest to the essence of the Batman character than any film adapted from the DC comics have since Tim Burton’s inaugural Batman in 1989.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4 | Nov 23, 2022

      The Batman is a brave, bold and brilliant new take on a familiar character and Reeves and Pattinson have done him proud.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Nov 13, 2022

      Matt Reeves’ The Batman is a brutal, uncompromising vision that leaves its indelible mark in comic book film history.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5 | Nov 5, 2022

      The film casts long shadows with blacks and grays, but the consistent, bleeding flashes of red paint the most intense moments with jarring contrast.

      Full Review | Original Score: A- | Sep 2, 2022

      The Batman is the only comic book adaptation since The Dark Knight to come close to recreating that cinematic achievement, brilliantly blending entertainment with artistry.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5 | Sep 1, 2022

      Reeves, it should be noted, assembles a lot of other people’s ideas and themes into this mammoth package. The movie is a triumph of craft and design, but original it ain’t.

      Full Review | Original Score: B+ | Aug 24, 2022

      Reeves’ vision is fresh and innovative, building a young (but not brand new) version of the Bat world that is satisfying as a single film, while planting the seeds for a juggernaut franchise.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Aug 22, 2022

      The Batman transcends an oversaturated genre and gives arguably the best portrayal of the caped crusader yet. Matt Reeves delivers a slow-burn detective noir with a terrifying villain and ever-rising tension. A rare film that I would call a masterpiece!

      Writer-director Matt Reeves knows how to write a blockbuster with brains, and he knows how to film one with visual flare.

      Full Review | Jul 21, 2022

      The way that everything is spliced and shaken together, and the mood — and it's definitely a mood — makes this weighty, heavy, sublimely shot, excellently cast, always-engaging blockbuster feel new, and all things Batman with it.

      Full Review | Jun 25, 2022

      THE BATMAN shows that even the best intentions may inspire mayhem, cause heck this is Gotham.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/4 | Jun 22, 2022

      And even though at times the movie seems a little too male-centric, in times when this is almost prohibited, it felt good to feel those testosterone punches in such a quality, entertaining film. [Full review in Spanish]

      How many times can this story be told? Next time pray that the filmmakers aren’t this self-serious about their own vision and that the running time values your time outside of Gotham.
