Gotham City: dark, dangerous, ‘protected’ only by a mostly corrupt police department. Despite the best efforts of D.A. Harvey Dent and police commissioner Jim Gordon, the city becomes increasingly unsafe…until a Dark Knight arises. We all know criminals are a superstitious, cowardly lot…so his disguise must be able to strike terror into their hearts. He becomes a bat. Enter Vicky Vale, a prize-winning photo journalist who wants to uncover the secret of the mysterious “bat-man”. And enter Jack Napier, one-time enforcer for Boss Grissom, horribly disfigured after a firefight in a chemical factory…who, devoid of the last vestiges of sanity, seizes control of Gotham’s underworld as the psychotic, unpredictable Clown Prince of Crime…the Joker. Gotham’s only hope, it seems, lies in this dark, brooding vigilante. And just how does billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne fit into all of this?

Film Review

I very much enjoyed this film. The photography is stunningly beautiful (80's style). Some flaws, I feel any flaw with this film is very often exaggerated. Don't allow any negative review stop you from seeing this film. Tim Burton directs a legendary entry in the overall Batman legacy. And if I may say, Jack Nicholson's performance is captivating & jaw dropping. I feel Heath Ledger's performance is often considered the greatest portrayal of The Joker (It is legendary). However, Jack N.'s performance reminds me of James Cagney's trademark portrayal of gangsters. I believe Heath drew much inspiration & technique (not discrediting his originality) from Jack's Joker. Overall, many amazing, remarkable scenes, a great story line, beautiful scenery makes this film a 9/10. :-)JUSTIN M. BUCK

As was noted in my review of Batman Begins, I was always more of a fan of the older movies than the newer series (TDKR is an exception though – i thought it was awesome). With that being said, I took the time out to re-watch the oldies and see if my opinion still holds today.The original Batman was never my favourite of the old movies – in fact, it was my least favourite, with the other three being better. However, it was still a good film. Sure, the effects and action are not like today's films, but it still looked decent for a film made in the eighties. While I couldn't stand Vicky Vale nor the Knox guy (she was too much damsel in distress, he was too annoying), Michael Keaton was a good Batman (Batman is sexy, too be honest, no matter who is playing him) and added a touch of mystery to him without being too brooding or cold. Jack Nicholson was an insanely nutty Joker and played the part fabulously. His cackles, his makeup, his humour, his insane antics…I don't know…

Batman seems to fail to live up to it's expectations in this 1989 adaptation of the comic book series. I'm not comparing this to Nolan's Batman trilogy, because there is simply no comparison.In contrast with the comics however, Bruce Wayne is a dark and brooding, sometimes seemingly hopeless man, lost in his mind, and full of doubt and sadness. He saw his parents murdered in front of him.I can put up with Tim Burton. In fact, I really enjoy some of his movies. This is a mockery to Batman however. The only character that seems to fit their paper counterpart is Jack Nicholson, who never fails to amaze in whatever role he plays. The Joker finds humor in everything, or at least has a reason to smile. I only enjoyed seeing him on screen, but the tone of this film was weak in comparison to Bob Kane's work (Batman creator). Furthermore, it almost felt like a Batman spoof. The pacing was slow, and the cuts were even slower. I waited forever for something to happen. I waite…
