Re: Can Batman escape the "Third Act Curse"?
I was never a fan of it from the beginning myself. I'm not a huge fan of either Penguin or Catwoman(although I want to see Penguin in a movie as a crime boss, and not a deformed half penguin/half human character, and have him lead a freak gang). Although I like the closed-in scenery in Batman Returns, I think Batman is the overall better movie. It deals more with the rivalry of Joker and Batman than how BR portrayed the rivalry between Penguin and Batman, imo.
Christoper Walken was great in BR though. I loved his death scene.
