In this Batman movie review, I’ll cover a few topics, including Robert Pattinson’s performance, director Bruce Reeves’ direction, and Gotham City’s aesthetics. I also look at Bruce Reeves’ work as a writer and director. I hope this review helps you decide whether or not to go see the movie.
Robert Pattinson’s Batman
While “The Batman” does not make a lot of sense on a plot and character level, Pattinson’s performance is outstanding. He sheds the baggage of Edward Cullen and the Twilight hysteria, and gives a performance that will age like a fine wine. His chiseled jawline, his dark eyes, and his slick hairdo give him an authentic and complex Batman. His grimace is especially entrancing, as it suggests that Pattinson may not be a perfect man, but is a man who will do what is right, even if it means sacrificing himself for his cause.
“The Batman” revolves around the transformation of Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne from a man in distress to a hero who can help those in need. Batman is needed in Gotham, but is not beloved by the citizens. The citizens see him as an outcast. Pattinson’s portrayal shows his growth from a social outcast to a hero, but it’s a slow, tedious process that carries a lot of violence and disturbing images.
Bruce Reeves’ direction
In the Batman movie, the premise of Batman is a simple one. Batman must stop the villains, which is no small feat. But in this film, we are introduced to a different version of the crimefighter. The film’s villains are not the traditional Gotham City bad guys. Instead, they are more akin to a comic book story. The villains include the Riddler, Penguin, and Carmine Falcone.
Matt Reeves, the director of Batman, has a knack for bringing comics to the big screen. He has a knack for cherry picking material from 80 years of Batman comics. This means that fans of the Batman comics will enjoy the movie even more.
Robert Pattinson’s performance
Robert Pattinson’s performance in the Batman movie is not only a masterful portrayal of the superhero, but also a welcome change of pace from his previous roles. Before starring in the Twilight series, Pattinson was the subject of fanboy rage. His performance has served as a rallying point for the fanboys to put down their pitchforks. In this new DC movie, he shows off his new frame and leaner physique.
The Batman movie is a slow-burning DC film directed by Matt Reeves. Although it may take three hours to get to its conclusion, it will definitely hold your attention. Robert Pattinson thrives in this gritty role, and his performance perfectly matches the mood of the film. The film’s slow pace is an excellent match for Pattinson’s brooding, gritty Batman.
Gotham city’s aesthetics
The aesthetics of Gotham City are as important to the Batman movie as the Batsuit itself. Often, the city is portrayed as a dark, dangerous place where the residents are prone to crime. The film’s aesthetics can be described as a fusion of sound design, cinematography, and characterization. Each Gotham movie portrays the city in a different way, but the city’s overall aesthetic remains consistent.
In The Batman movie, the city’s aesthetics are a mixture of the past and the present. Tim Burton’s film incorporates elements of German expressionism, as well as Italian Futurism and Frank Lloyd Wright’s expressionist work. It also incorporates many different architectural styles and elements of contemporary culture.
Jeff Dano’s Riddler
The Riddler is a great villain for a Batman movie, and he adds a lot to the overall film. His role is closely tied to the themes of class and wealth, and leads Batman down a rabbit hole of Gotham’s corruption. Eventually, the Riddler reveals how the Wayne family is involved in that corruption. While this idea was echoed in Todd Phillips’ Joker, The Batman’s execution is more sophisticated. Also, Paul Dano’s performance as the Riddler is very different, which gives it an air of malice that works so well.
Unlike the Joker, the Riddler was not born evil. He is a product of society’s broken system and seeks to inflict pain on others. While he is a white male, the Riddler is a criminal who aims to exploit society and seeks to gain recognition.
