    In short, Batman is terrific - funny, smart and sensitive too, the perfect cinematic date.

  • Hal Hinson

    The movie fixes you in its gravitational pull. It's an enveloping, walk-in vision... As rich and satisfying a movie as you're likely to see all year.

  • Andrew Collins

    Jack Nicholson as The Joker helpfully provides all the colour.

  • Staff (Not Credited)

    Nicholson embellishes fascinatingly baroque designs with his twisted features, lavish verbal pirouettes and inspired excursions into the outer limits of psychosis. It's a masterpiece of sinister comic acting.

    The Batblast of the summer.

  • James Berardinelli

    Batman is largely content to skim the surface and bask in the light of its visual style.

  • Staff (Non Credited)

    Despite its interesting, grim tone and undeniably striking visuals from director Burton and production designer Furst, the film fails to synthesize its strengths into a compelling whole.

  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    The main problem is that Burton operates best on a modest scale; saddled with a blockbuster, he doesn't know how to animate all the dead space.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    The movie's problem is that no one seemed to have any fun making it, and it's hard to have much fun watching it. It's a depressing experience.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Vincent Canby

    It's neither funny nor solemn. It has the personality not of a particular movie but of a product, of something arrived at by corporate decision.

  • Mick LaSalle

    It's a rare, beautifully made movie that offers you another world. [23 June 1989, Daily Datebook, p.E1]
