What Is It?
The 2022 American superhero movie The Batman.
This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:
Batman ventures into Gotham City’s 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 plans become clear, he must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued the metropolis.
My brother GC and I watched this movie over the weekend, we both agree that it was too long, but surprisingly it did not feel as long as it was.
I actually liked this movie better than I had expected, and it kept my attention the entire time.
It was like a mystery psychological thriller noir superhero movie.
There was some good cinematography, some good music, and a serious, more grounded approach to Batman.
I like my superhero movies serious like this, this movie was very moody, from the visuals, the pacing, the body laugh, and facial expressions.
Robert Pattinson’s version of Bruce Wayne was like none that I have seen so far, to me, he seemed to possibly be on the autism spectrum.
I am not used Bruce Wayne being like this, so I was not exactly a fan; but it was something different.
I did like Robert Pattinson’s version of Batman, though.
I like the new Batman theme song too:
I hope that Matt Reeves and his team will get to make more superhero movies, and I would like to see him & Christopher Nolan work on some Dune movies together along with Denis Villeneuve.
