Reviews for Batman
Review - Batman
I want to like it more. I remember being similarly disappointed when I saw it when it first came out. Nicholoson does a pretty good job as an insane Joker. But Batman seems rather ineffectual. He's always getting beaten up. He crashes his plane. He only survives the fight in the steeple because he managed to hang on for dear life until the Joker fell. And although I like Michael Keaton in other things, he doesn't do a great job as the brooding Wayne. On the other hands, the few lines of comedy he has are great. I just think the character needed someone with more presence and was a bit more invincible.
