Default Re: Am I the only one who feels like B'89 is vastly overrated?

I don't know if "over-rated" is quite the correct term for how I feel about it. It certainly has its place in Batman movie history, and is a huge step above most of the other films.

However, it's not totally my cup of tea. Nicholson is kind of just "Nicholson" and most of the movie feels a bit "stiff", as if to mimic the difficulty Keaton had moving in the suit. He has to scissor his whole body to actually complete a kick. I mean, people complain about the action in Batman Begins...

Some of it is good though, such as the Joker digging Vicki Vale's war photography.
