Batman 1989

description written by member Zara:

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?

Batman Movie Review by William (2/8/2010)

Before "Batman Begins" or "The Dark Knight", Warner Brothers had four fantastic Batman classics, this is just the beginning. Batman stars Michael Keaton as the caped crusader who captures the DC comics character who fights crime at night. Keaton also plays Bruce Wayne, the richest man in America. Jack Nicholson plays the...

Batman Movie Review by Chris (7/15/2008)

After a young boy witnesses his parents' murder on the streets of Gotham City, he grows up to become the Batman - a mysterious figure in the eyes of Gotham's citizens - who takes crime-fighting into his own hands. He first emerges out of the shadows when the Joker appears - a horribly disfigured individual who is out for...

Batman Movie Review by Filmkiller (7/15/2008)

I'm not sure that there's a movie that polarizes film fans more than Tim Burton's Batman, and it's got little to do with whether it's technically sound or not. Whether you like Tim Burton's Batman is 100% about what you like versus what you don't. You either like a pudgy Nicholson dancing to Prince in the late '80's...

Batman Movie Review by Tammy (10/13/2007)

Jack Nicholson is the Joker, who emerged from a horrible accident as a maniacal criminal. Michael Keaton is the Caped Crusader, who emerged from a childhood trauma to become a masked crimefighter. Kim Basinger is Vicki Vale, the talented photojournalist desired by both men. And Batman is the movie, the all-out spectacular...

Batman Movie Review by Jarrod (9/16/2007)

Tim Burton's 'Batman' was a huge box office success back in 1989, but after watching Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins, it is hard for me to enjoy this somber and dark visualization of Bruce Wayne's bitter crusade to avenge his parents by donning a costume and cleaning up the streets of Gotham City. Its production values...
