Plot Summary

In the second of the blockbuster Batman films, the physically deformed criminal genius The Penguin threatens Gotham City--and, helpless, the entire city can only pray that Batman Returns. Only Batman (Michael Keaton) can defend the city from total chaos as The Penguin (Danny DeVito) lays twisted waste to a great metropolis. Meanwhile, the Dark Knight may have met his equal in the lethally lithe Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer)--only he doesn't know if she is feline friend ... or foe.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Because the film's predominant motif is that of wounded individuals re-inventing themselves as wily villains, its most memorable episodes are early ones explaining each main character's transformation. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Dec 13, 2014

Fresh: Exhaustingly inventive. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 15, 2010

Fresh: Burton uses the summer's most explosively entertaining movie to lead us back into the liberating darkness of dreams. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Dec 3, 2013

Rotten: [Burton's] dark, melancholy vision is undeniably something to see, but it is a claustrophobic conception, not an expansive one, oppressive rather than exhilarating, and it strangles almost all the enjoyment out of this movie without half trying. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Dec 14, 2014

Love this movie

Love it, but batman's barley in it, too much penguin scenes. This movies also has a lot of sex's pretty gothic too. One of the wierdest batman movies. But still is great.

My favorite batman film

I think this is the only batman film that comes close to Dark Knight for me. It captured that darkness without the dark brown filter on blast on every camera angle. Michael Keaton is and will always be my favorite batman. He has the mystery that todays batman lacks. Christian bale, some stranger that grew up in an orphanage knew he was batman.


I love Batman, all of them
