In the crime-ridden city of Gotham, a mysterious figure in a bat costume has been taking down criminals left and right. This vigilante, known only as “Batman,” strikes fear into the hearts of even the most hardened criminals.

Meanwhile, Gotham’s wealthiest citizen, Bruce Wayne (played by Michael Keaton), is secretly Batman himself. He uses his vast resources to create high-tech gadgets and weapons to aid him in his fight against crime.

But Batman’s latest nemesis is unlike any he’s faced before. The Joker (played by Jack Nicholson) is a madman with no regard for human life or morality. He delights in chaos and destruction, using deadly gas and other weapons to wreak havoc on Gotham.

The Joker’s ultimate goal? To become the city’s ruler, with Batman out of the way once and for all.

As Batman races to stop the Joker’s sinister plan, he also must grapple with his own demons. His love interest, Vicki Vale (played by Kim Basinger), threatens to expose his true identity to the worldIn the dark and dangerous city of Gotham, crime rules the streets. But there is a new player in town, the mysterious hero known as Batman.

As Batman, Wayne uses his high-tech gadgets and combat skills to take down Napier’s gang members and bring them to justice. But Napier himself proves to be a formidable opponent when he falls into a vat of chemicals during a confrontation with Batman and emerges as the Joker.

With his face twisted into a grotesque smile and his mind warped into madness, the Joker begins wreaking havoc on Gotham City. He poisons products sold by beauty companies, kills rival gang members, and even stages an attack at a charity event attended by Gotham’s elite.

Batman must use all of his resources to stop the Joker before he can unleash even more chaos on the city. With help from reporter Vicki Vale (Kim Basinger), Wayne uncovers evidence that links Napier/Joker to corrupt business magnate Carl Grissom (Jack Palance). Grissom had ordered Napier to steal files from Axis Chemicals where he fell in chemical vat

Batman confronts Grissom just as Joker interrupts them. In a climactic showdown atop Gotham’s cathedral, Batman battles Joker and ultimately saves Vicki Vale from falling off it. The Joker falls to his death but not before revealing that he was responsible for killing Bruce Wayne’s parents.

“Batman” was praised for its dark tone and impressive performances from Keaton as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Nicholson as The Joker. The film was a critical and commercial success, grossing over $400 million worldwide and spawning a franchise that continues to this day.




“Batman,” directed by Tim Burton and released in 1989, is a classic American superhero film that has remained popular over the years. The movie is centered around the eponymous character, played by Michael Keaton, and his quest to rid Gotham City of its criminal underworld.

The film begins with a young Bruce Wayne witnessing the murder of his parents by an armed mugger. This event serves as the catalyst for Wayne’s transformation into Batman, as he vows to protect Gotham from similar tragedies. As Batman, Wayne faces off against his arch-nemesis, Joker (played by Jack Nicholson), who is wreaking havoc throughout the city.

One of the most striking features of “Batman” is its art direction. Tim Burton’s vision for Gotham City is dark and gothic, with imposing skyscrapers and shadowy alleyways evoking a sense of danger and foreboding. The costumes are similarly impressive; Batman’s suit looks sleek and intimidating, while Joker’s clown-like getup perfectly captures his twisted sense of humor.

The performances in “Batman” are also noteworthy. Michael Keaton delivers a convincing portrayal of both Bruce Wayne and Batman, capturing the character’s brooding intensity as well as his occasional vulnerability. Jack Nicholson steals the show as Joker, bringing a manic energy to every scene he appears in. His performance is both chilling and entertaining, making him one of cinema’s most memorable villains.

Another standout aspect of “Batman” is its score by Danny Elfman. The haunting melodies complement Burton’s gothic visuals perfectly, creating an immersive atmosphere that enhances every scene.

Despite all these strengths, “Batman” does have some flaws. The plot can be somewhat convoluted at times, with several subplots competing for attention alongside Batman’s fight against Joker. Additionally, some viewers may find certain aspects of Burton’s interpretation too campy or over-the-top.

Overall, though, “Batman” is a classic superhero film that still holds up today. Its stunning visuals, memorable performances, and iconic score make it an essential viewing for any fan of the genre.

As a child, I was moved by the movie “The Bad News Bears Go to Japan” where Japanese professional baseball players and American actors performed in front of a large audience. This made me fall in love with the movie. This blog is my review of the movie that I actually saw. Please use it as a reference when renting movies.

For a long time, in between housework,
I would go to the movie theater to watch films and then write reviews of the movies in a diary which I stored away in a closet.
When I showed these reviews to Azesan, he suggested turning them into a website.
I am grateful for this wonderful opportunity. I may be nearing the end of my life, but if reading my reviews can move the hearts of younger people,
I think that would be wonderful.
It may even become a catalyst for various realizations and changes in their lives moving forward.
