After a young boy witnesses his parents' murder on the streets of Gotham City he grows up to become Batman a mysterious figure in the eyes of Gotham's citizens who takes crime-fighting into his own hands. He first emerges out of the shadows when the Joker appears - a horribly disfigured individual who is out for revenge on his former employer and generally likes to have a good time but the identity of the ""bat"" is unknown. Perhaps millionaire Bruce Wayne and photographer Vicki Val
And about time too!! Sick of the taste of vanilla with the previous Batman releases? Well now the film gets the 2 disc coverage it richly deserves.
A great way to introduce Batman to a new generation (as Batman Begins is doing now), there isnt a 'thwakk' or 'pow' to be seen as 60's high camp is thrown aside.
Resembling the comic strips in tone but still with tongue in cheek moments, the special edition version is the one to go for - at last providing us with the extra info we crave from a dvd and perhaps most importantly, a great commentary from director Burton.
Keaton is great as Batman and all praise to Burton for choosing him. Not immediately obvious as the choice of (anti)hero, Keaton brings depth, humour and character to the role of Bruce Wayne.
Obviously Nicholson gets all the plaudits for chewing up the scenery which is a shame because it's Keaton's film. Fingers crossed the new Joker in the next Batman film will be more fleshed out.
Anyway, do it - buy this version. Flog your old vanilla version for 10p as a frisbee to some kid and invest in this instead - you will not be disappointed....
