About the Movie
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.
Fresh: Exhaustingly inventive.
Fresh: Burton uses the summer's most explosively entertaining movie to lead us back into the liberating darkness of dreams.
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.
I love Batman, all of them
This is my absolute favorite Batman film. I am a huge fan on Tim Burton, though I understand others may find his movies too dark. Keaton as batman was once again amazing, and I feel that nobody could have played a better Penguin than Danny Devito. But the number one reason why this movie is my favorite is Michelle Pfeiffer's portrayal of Catwoman. Catwoman is one of my all time favorite characters, and the way Pfeiffer put her own twist on the role was amazing. She made it so much more than a cheesy comical character, she put her emotion into it. She took a campy, fun part and twisted it around into something with much more of a story. She gave this part so much character, and I still get chills at the Masquerade ball scene because of the amount of emotion she put into it. Overall I absolutely love this movie and it's darkness, because the darkness is what makes it more realistic than other batman movies. Five stars.
