David’s review published on Letterboxd:
The Batman was just released in UK cinemas over the weekend and is directed by Matt Reeves. The movie stars Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Andy Serkis, Barry Keoghan and many more.
The Batman ventures into Gotham City’s criminal underworld when a sadistic killer leaves behind a trail of cryptic clues. As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plan became clear, he must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit and being justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued the metropolis.
The Batman movie is the most darkest and grottiest Batman movie that has been released. Robert Pattinson does an excellent job as Batman and also a good job of being Bruce Wayne. I loved the relationships in the movie, Batman and Cat woman have a enjoyable relationship and even makes for such emotional decisions towards the end of the movie, I enjoyed the partnership between the Batman and Lieutenant Jim Gordon, it brought out some humour and some entertaining conversations. The villain of the Riddler is excellent due to the acting from Paul Dano, he creates such a sadistic psychopathic villain, reminding me of the Joker in some ways. The action in the movie is great, although it is not constant through the movie. I thoroughly enjoyed the pacing of the movie and it came as a surprise especially compared to the typical superhero movies that have been released over the last decade. This movie reminded me of some of the great psychological slow thrillers like Seven and Prisoners and thankfully this movie was up to the level of those great classic thriller movies. A great movie, and a must watch for sure.
