ldh's review

It always amazed me how badly received this movie was, to the point that Tim Burton was taken off the project for the follow up. The differences couldn't be starker. Batman Returns is dark and gorgeously Art Demo and Gothic at the same time. It explores many corners of the human psyche and the contradictions of the Batman character. In contrast, the 2 follow-ups from Joel Schumacher are brightly colored, silly and cartoonish. I for one think this is the second best Batman film after Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight.
