Meh
9 May 2017 | by oldchummerSee all my reviews

Kind of gets boring in the middle section of the movie. Really silly movie at times (even for a 90s comic book movie). Good stuff from Danny Elfman. Missed opportunity of a movie when compared to its predecessor. Feels more like Edward Scissorhands than an actual Batman story. Would've benefited more if it had only one villain. Should've saved Catwoman for a different movie.
