I have just watched the new Batman movie, The Batman (2022). And I have to say: God, what a truly AWFUL film. I would even go as far as to say that it is, without doubt, the WORST Batman movie I have ever seen in my whole life.
I just hated everything about this movie. It had no redeeming features whatsoever. The story was rubbish, the Batman character was so dull and unentertaining – and much too talky, with his dreary, mumbled voiceovers that we could have definitely done without. And his version of Bruce Wayne – what few times we did actually see the character – was equally rubbish.
It also had the worst versions of The Riddler and The Penguin I have ever seen in a Batman movie. And don’t even get me started on the awful inclusion of Catwoman! I mean, what the HELL was the point?
One of the movie’s worst faults was that the picture was much too dark. In fact, it was so dark at times that you could barely see The Batman at all, his own equally dark costume blending annoyingly into the overwhelming blackness. Blimey, what a Gawdawful MESS they made of this movie. A totally missed opportunity here, if ever there was. And they completely ruined a character that ranks so highly in my estimation as one of my all time favourite super heroes.
I just cannot understand all the hype surrounding this car crash of a Batman movie. It is much too overrated, and to be bluntly honest, it is a film that should NEVER have been made, as it did the character of Batman an unforgivably huge and totally unforgivable disservice. In short, I HATED it.
Come back, Adam West and Michael Keaton. All is forgiven.
