Описание: Эта экранизация комиксов о конфликте злодея и героя очень выигрывает, благодаря Николсону в роли Джокера. Фильм, вокруг которого раздули невероятную рекламную шумиху, безусловно интересен всем любителям приключений и фантастики, несмотря на то, что комиксы не были составной частью нашей культуры. "Оскар" - за декорации (Антон Ферст и Питер Янг). (Иванов М.)
Рецензии: This is truly the best Batman film ever.
Michael Keaton is the true Caped Crusader. It's a shame he quit after Batman Returns. Like Christopher Reeve in Superman, Michael was born to play Batman.
I enjoy Batman comics. As some of you are probably aware Batman made his debut in Detective Comics 27 in 1939 and he was a dark character. He took no prisoners back then and wasn't afraid to take a villains life. There was no Robin back then to brighten things up and Batman truly struck fear into the villains hearts in Gotham.
However in the 1960's both the comic Batman and the small screen Batman became very camp. No longer did Batman strike fear into the hearts of villains.He became a comedy character. Then came the 1960's series (which was enjoyable if you're in the mood)starring Adam West. This adaption of Batman was the one most people adhere to.Villains like the Joker were no longer psychotic killers-they were played mainly for laughs.
Anyway, I remember in 1989 how several people thought that the new Batman movie was going to be too dark. If you were brought up on the 1960's show, it probably was but if you're a fan of the original Batman from 1939 then this film was a blessing. Tim Burton brought Batman back to his roots.
Robin was not in this film which was actually a good idea as it gave us more time to explore Batman's origins. And Keaton played the part of Batman (and Bruce Wayne) very well. He was moody and very brooding.
Jack Nicholson (always good at playing psycho's) played an excellant part as The Joker. In the 1960's show, the Joker was just a clown who wasn't really that threatening but Nicholson portrayed the Joker as a psycho. Again, the original comic book Joker was a psycho. In a comic book story from the 1940's Gotham City's Police Officers actually had to provide round the clock protection for a man whose life was threatened by The Joker.That was how sinister the Joker was.Nicholson brought the Joker back to his roots and played the part very well-he managed to give my sister nightmares.
(POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD) This is a great Batman film. The sequel was good but the subsequent films after that were not as dark as this. There are some great scenes. My favourites are where there's a three way battle in a chemical factory between Batman, the police and the criminals. Batman is just scary in this scene as he swoops down to take out the bad guys. The other great scene is where Batman confronts the Joker at the end.
This was a superb film that never got the credit it deserved. It would be really nice if Michael Keaton returned one day to play an ageing Batman.
