I just saw this movie this weekend and thought I’d start a thread.
*This is such an old movie I see no need to put anything in spoiler boxes, so be warned! *
I loved this movie. Batman was appreciably dark, just the way I like my Batman. The romance was neither annoying nor cloying.
I also liked that the Joker died. I know he doesn’t die in the comics but I felt it was highly necesary for him to die in the movie, for a sense of completeness.
- Joker takes down the jet with one extra-long gun? Silly.
- Large black guard at the end beats nine ways of hell out of Batman but feels nothing in his fists. Joker hits his armor once and cries? That armor should have broken the guard’s knuckles.
- Batman was VERY hot in his suit. I thought it would be cheesy but it was remarkably well done.
- The Batmobile. Loved it! Loved the jet even better.
In the end, I recommend it. Going to see 2 & 3 next weekend. Any input on this one or those?
