If you like this type of look at pieces of fiction, you're in for a treat
19 May 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Whilst I don't necessarily see how this belongs on the History Channel, I gotta say that I enjoyed this. It's a documentary, and the subject of it is what goes on in the head of Batman, and, to a somewhat lesser extent, his villains. This has clips of both of the new films, panels/covers(the highly dynamic and effective way they're used works impeccably well), but consists mainly of interviews, particularly with experts, educated people(and at least one of them, in addition to almost invariably being articulate and presenting his points well, is quite clearly a fan, and, I would say it's possible that he's not even embarrassed by it), as well as Nolan and Bale. This goes beyond the movies that the latter two have been involved in(and, in general, isn't really limited to the silver screen versions), as far as the "rogue's gallery" goes, meaning, they go over foes not seen in the theatrical releases since Burton's entries, and the first of Schumacher's(I think the entire world is trying to forget he did more than one). I personally found it all immensely engaging and interesting, and I suspect that there is a great chance that others who care for delving into the mind(in all its intricacy) and perhaps also the well-known and long-lasting character and symbol would agree. This is a rather thorough and credible psychological examination. I recommend it to anyone who wishes to watch such. 8/10
