The Batman Review


Cayden Summers

The Batman is an action adventure movie directed by Matt Reeves. Matt Reeves also directed big movie franchises like Cloverfield, and The Planet Of The Apes trilogy. The Batman features an all-star cast consisting of Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffery Wright, and Barry Keoghan. The Batman is one of the more serious superhero movies and a darker one too, being the movie wanted to be rated R but ended up being PG-13. If you are a big Marvel fan, this movie is extremely out of your comfort zone as the movie plays out like a dark buddy cop movie or otherwise a movie like Se7en. Unlike other Batman movies, the Riddler is actually scary and you can say he is like the killer in Se7en, as well as being inspired by the real-life Zodiac Killer. The way Gotham is portrayed in this movie, there is really no hope for it, and even Batman is not sure of that, and not even sure he is even making an impact on the city. Compared to the Christopher Nolan The Dark Knight trilogy, Matt Reeves’ The Batman really topped it, even though they both took the realistic route, one was simply more visually entertaining and had a plot that was more gripping. There really is not any significant flaws, but what makes this Batman adaptation different is the gothic feel to Bruce Wayne and Gotham, and how Bruce Wayne doesn’t differentiate from Batman throughout the movie. As a movie, it is structurally better than Spiderman: No Way Home.
