The Batman movie review

Evis Hernandez, Staff Writer

“The Batman” is by far one of the best comic book movies that have ever hit theaters and gives fans the Batman they have always wanted. The movie perfectly presents the fear and terror Batman gives off to all the criminals in Gotham, and hope he gives to citizens. 

The actors delivered incredible performances across the board. Robert Pattinson’s performance as the Batman is by far perfection and the best depiction of the character with his anger, aggression and determination. The Riddler, played by Paul Dano, was a masterclass performance by showing how truly insane and psychotic the Riddler really is. He plays a horrifying character based on the Zodiac Killer. The performance of Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman was very well done and gave us a good perspective of the character and how she met Batman.

The villains, Penguin and Carmine Falcone, were given a strong introduction to this cinematic universe’s Batman and give us a representation on how these characters will be used in the future. As well as introducing great villains, it also builds excitement for upcoming iconic villains.

The action scenes were by far the best part of the movie along with the plot. The fight scenes were by far a 10/10, and they were realistic as they showed that Batman is still human; he still has a hard time fighting multiple people at once. Not only were there fight scenes, there was also an epic car chase. The Batmobile scene is one of the most iconic moments in superhero films as they give us a very exciting Penguin chase scene that had the audience hooked.

The movie shows that Batman holds his name as the World’s Greatest Detective as he solves Riddler’s riddles within seconds. This movie perfectly represents how a Batman movie should be by solving clues and getting different leads throughout the movie. Riddler is the hardest one he has had to face in his two years of being Batman.

My overall rating is a five stars out of five stars; this is my favorite Batman movie yet.
