  • It's a rare, beautifully made movie that offers you another world. [23 June 1989, Daily Datebook, p.E1] show more

  • In short, Batman is terrific - funny, smart and sensitive too, the perfect cinematic date. show more

  • Burton's Gotham City-constructed on a massive sound stage in London- is a striking blend of spindly gothic, decaying art deco and broodingly bland institutional architecture that seems to lie just a couple of subway stops down from Ridley Scott's ''Blade Runner'' and Terry Gilliam's ''Brazil.'' It's great to look at, but we seem to have been here before. [23 June 1989, Friday, p.A] show more

    Great! Jack did a great upgraded joker since the 60's. I love the story and was great! I think The Dark Knight was better but for this movies time, I love it!

    good acting and costumes enhance this good looking film. Basinger, keaton and Nicholoson do good work here. The score is a step up fro the action sequences. A shocking ending helps.
