"Oh no... the Style-O-matic 3000 is stuck on hyper-drive... I can't turn it off!"
10 December 2007 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

OK, admitted, this documentary isn't *constantly* as over-stylized as I perhaps insinuate. But when it is, it's... not good. Not pretty. Coupled with a handful of *really* silly bits, if they are maybe reasonably executed, and the fact that it's edited from at least much of the same footage also used for the film's part of the Shadows of the Bat series, as well as the other special features on the DVD(which are all of far superior production quality)... yeah, this "making of" feature on Batman Returns comes to be a considerably less interesting special feature than, well, all the others on the DVD. The rushing editing of much of it doesn't exactly help. Still, you could do worse, and this does have some things that make it worth watching(and some of it is decently cut), be it behind the scenes footage, interview bits or actual clips of the film. And if you haven't watched the film, this can be watched beforehand(though it will of course spoil the surprises of the costumes and such, but hey, it could be argued that the trailer or poster does the same). Urich is a decent enough host, though he doesn't really help fight the stream of camp. The production is very obviously put together for TV, and seems to try to fit in too much, as well as make sure it can cut to commercials every so often. If you can tolerate the look and the cringe-inspiring gags(believe me, "gag" is the appropriate word) of this, it isn't bad for a viewing or two. And hey, like I said, the film won't particularly be spoiled for you if you see this first. I recommend this to fans of the film and the people working on it, and since this is on the new DVD, you won't have to go out of your way to find it. 6/10
