I am a Superman fan. So this franchise isn't real important to me. But being as Batman is a fellow DC hero. I have watched all of the movies of the past. And this portrayal wasn't my favorite. I loved Val Kilmer's Batman. But I am a girl. And he was sexy and playful Caped Crusader. I must have watched that film at least 50 times. My Son was younger. And we knew that film word for word. This movie was violent and the story line was all over the place. Unfortunately I will always associate this film with the senseless murders of loyal Batman fans.
