It doesn't live up to the expectations or standards of 1989 Batman
There lies the problem with a lot of the negative reviews. As a direct sequel to 1989's Batman, it's an utter bomb. I am totally agreeing with that. However, as an independent film in its own catagory, I'm fine with Batman Returns. Normally I'm big on continuity, but come on people, this is Batman. If you're a fan of the comic books, and I grew up loving the comics, this movie has really only got a few flaws that I can easily overlook. Granted, they are MAJOR flaws, but I'm willing to bet a lot of the negative reviews are because of their own take on what they've watched, not the flaws. For that reason, forget about the mistakes they made, and just appreciate this as part of the Batman series. A lot of the 1 star reviews on here, for example, I don't think these people realize that they had to go a different direction for this movie. Joker is dead, okay, people, they had to go a different direction. You demanded more Batman, they gave it to you, and what do you all do? You just itch and complain about this that and the other thing. They brought in a new villian, The Penguin. Danny DeVito was great! What's wrong, don't like penguins? The major flaw? CATWOMAN!!! I think this is one of the major flaws, as they rushed in and introduced this character way too soon. What the hey, I thought it was all right. Action is there, Batman feel of it is there, its still Gotham, what more do we want here, people? Get yourself together, and just appreciate this for what it is. It's Batman, and its still Tim Burton here. It doesn't live up to the expectations or standards of 1989's Batman because it can't, the bar was set too incredibly high. All in all, I thought this was a fair shake on the series, I enjoyed it, even though I thought it was just a little too long. I've given Batman Returns 7 stars, maybe half a star more then it deserves, but I'm not rounding it off to 6. I have to make up for some of the slack that some other reviewers weren't willing to give it.
