Excellent casting and stellar direction makes this latest interpretation of the Caped Crusader a winner. Gotham City has not looked this dark and foreboding since the Tim Burton movies. Robert Pattinson is a good fit for a moodier Batman and Zoe Kravitz is wonderful casting as Catwoman. Paul Dano is extremely creepy as The Riddler. Colin Farrell is a riot as Penguin. The movie is more like a mystery than an action thriller. Although there are some killer action set-pieces, particularly a hectic car chase through Gotham traffic and a cataclysmic showdown. Matt Reeves’ reimagining of a revered comic book hero is a suspenseful and thrilling alternative to other less ambitious superhero movies. I can’t wait for the sequels.

The seediest, most twisted "Batman" ever, "The Batman" isn't perfect pacing-wise, but makes a remarkable impression with one of the grimiest visions of Gotham and the most tormented incarnation of The Dark Knight ever.
