Good sequel. Feels very much like a continuation of the first film. Still retains the fun.

A solid edition to the Batman franchise, and much better than the other Batman films of the 90s. Keaton is much better than he was in the prequel and DeVito and Walken are top notch villains. The two things that keep this movie down are the cartoony setting (it just hasn't aged well) and the plethora of characters that sometimes ends up being too much. It is good overall, quite dark (which is welcome) and definitely worth seeing.

Honey, I'm home. Oh, I forgot. I'm not married.

At the beginning of production for Batman Returns, Tim Burton originally didnít want to return (heh!) to direct the film. He had mixed feelings about the first film, and he wanted the sequel be something more than what he felt Warner Bros. would allow. Luckily, the studio gave him much more creative control, and he agreed to comeback and helm the second film in the Batman franchise. You can tell from the get-go that he has much more power this time around, because the film has a much darker atmosphere and some of the characters have very dark backgrounds. This is a double-edged sword, as some of this new control results in improvements over the first, while others hamper the overall product.

As we return to Gotham we watch a scene of an infant being thrown into a river by his parents. ...

"Batman Returns" by Yojimbo

A corporate shark teams up with a mutant sewer dweller to try and take over Gotham City not counting on interference from both Batman and a vengeful employee reborn as the patent leather clad Catwoman. Tim Burton's sequel to his "nice try but no cigar" re-invention of Batman is a big improvement in every department. The production design is fantastic, it has some spectacular, slam bang set-pieces (particularly the explosive finale) and is tinged throughout with his macabre sense of humour. It does have its faults; the dialogue is a little forced, its pitch is a little inconsistent and I never thought that Keaton was the right man for the job. Inevitably the film is stolen out from under him by the trio of villains; Walken has a lot of fun as the malevolent Nosferatu-monickered tycoon, DeV...

You didn't invite me, so I crashed!

In anticipation of re-watching Batman Returns for the umpteenth time, I popped in the bonus material disc and peered into the making-of featurettes. There are quite a few tasty tidbits worth sharing (which I'll get to later).

I'd first like to point out that given the richness and scope of the film, I'll only be pointing out some of its highlights.

Tim Burton was reluctant to make a second Batman film; not only for the obvious reasons but also due to how he proclaimed (rightfully so) that the first had several boring patches. The studio captured his interest by suggesting he make a "Tim Burton film" instead of just another sequel. He decided to go to extremes, not feeling beholden to the comics. This resulted in a visually stunning, thematically dark yet hilarious picture that is tr...
