What an emergency escape plan. Climb the highest building of Gotham City to reach a chopper. And in the movie the whole escape seemed very spontaneous.
Wasn't there even someone here that explained the absence of the police by the Joker poisoning the coffee offered at the police station?
Having a favorite movie from one's childhood is a nice thing but when you've grown up you should just notice flaws that are definitely flaws. Batman (89) is an entertaining movie, but it isn't an overly accurate depiction of Batman nor is it a very well-written movie.
