Batman Returns


The Caped Crusader returns, ready to do battle with the Penguin (Danny DeVito), a freak who has risen from Gotham City’s sewage works, and Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer), who is intrigued by the Bat. Director Tim Burton’s sequel is at times brutal and mean-spirited, featuring a touch of sadomasochism and a superhero who’s become a bit blue. There’s not much logic to the story and the Penguin’s grand plan is not only revolting but also surprisingly dull in its execution. The movie does look great however, and Pfeiffer is appropriately erotic as the purring Cat.

1992-U.S. 126 min. Color. Directed by Tim Burton. Music: Danny Elfman. Song: “Face to Face” (performed by Siouxsie and the Banshees). Cast: Michael Keaton (Bruce Wayne/Batman), Danny DeVito (Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin), Michelle Pfeiffer (Selina Kyle/Catwoman), Christopher Walken, Michael Gough, Michael Murphy… Pat Hingle, Paul Reubens.

Trivia: Annette Bening was reportedly considered for the part of Catwoman. Followed by Batman Forever (1995).

Quote: “Life’s a bitch. Now so am I.” (Pfeiffer)
