Product Description

Sequel to Tim Burton's hugely successful 'Batman' (1989). Oswald Cobblepot was abandoned by his parents as a baby. Thirty three years later, bent on revenge, he returns to Gotham City as the Penguin (Danny DeVito). First he begins a warped campaign to become Mayor, helped by millionaire businessman Max Shreck (Christopher Walken); next, he undertakes a mission to murder every first born son in Gotham - a plan which will avenge his own beginnings. Meanwhile, he has two adversaries to contend with: Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer), the embittered ex-secretary of Max Shreck, and, of course, the old caped crusader himself - Batman (Michael Keaton).

From Amazon.co.uk

The first Batman sequel takes a wicked turn with the villainous exploits of the freakish and mean-spirited Penguin (Danny DeVito), whose criminal collaboration with evil tycoon Max Shreck (Christopher Walken) threatens to drain Gotham City of its energy supply. As if that wasn't enough, Batman (Michael Keaton) has his hands full with the vengeful Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer), who turns out to be a lot more dangerous than a kitten with a whip. As with the first Batman feature, director Tim Burton brings his distinct visual style to the frantic action but this time there's a darker malevolence lurking beneath all that extraordinary production design. --Jeff Shannon

Batman Returns was, before Batman Begins came out, my favourite of the movies. This remastered release is fantastic with a new transfer and DTS sound.
The extras are good and thorough, with an hour of behind the scenes material, and a half hour retrospective, plus trailers and music videos etc.
The only hitch is the lack of a director's commentary, as was promised on the box. A shame - apparently it had something to do with them cutting a shot for the R2 release and the Burton commentary then being out of sync. Either that or they forgot.
If you're really desperate for a commentary then hold back, but if, like me, you're a fan of the film regardless, there's plenty of extra stuff to justify the purchase.

Batman Returns remains something of a curiosity. It's dark and operatic mise-en-scene alienated viewers expecting a Happy Meal friendly genre film while those expecting a paint by numbers superhero story were left befuddled by the films visual complexity, moral ambiguity and tenuous narrative.
Make no mistake, Batman Returns is no generic action flick nor cut and dried comic book adap. It is far richer than that! Batman Returns is an expressionistic, poetic, operatic tale of twisted caricatures, fractured psyches and a search for what's right in a world defined by corruption.
Michael Keaton's introspective Dark Knight is as psychologically dense as ever while still finding time to kick all the right asses in some terrific action scenes. Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman is an incredibly sexy guerilla post-feminist richly illustrated by Bob Ringwood's costumes and Danny Elfman's haunting score fleshing out an already wonderful performance. Danny DeVito's penguin is a masterfully performed freak who manages to instill in us simultaneous loathing, humour and pathos, and Christopher Walken's tyrannical industrialist Max Schreck is one of the most memorable original creations in any comic book film.

The transfer on this DVD is remarkable. Burton's world of blacks and dark blues juxtaposed with the winter snow over Gotham has never looked more visually sumptuous. The 5.1 and DTS tracks get a reasonably good airing throughout the course of the film though their primary achievement is accentuating Elfman's wonderful score.
Tim Burton's commentary is, again, passable. The director clearly feels uncomfortable dissecting his own work, prefering to let it speak for itself though his most interesting musings concern what HE would have done with Batman Forever.

Format: DVD
I think of Batman Returns as a horror rather than a traditional superhero film. Its villain, a deformed, sewer-dwelling child killer, is straight out of a Stephen King novel (It, to be precise) and the themes are hauntingly macabre. This is a disturbed, intimate story about stolen childhoods, revenge and loneliness. Danny DeVito's Penguin is a pathetic freak, doomed from the moment he leaves his mother's womb as the film opens. A doctor rushes from the birthing room with a handkerchief over his face, the new father enters, and all we see or hear is his terrified scream through a door. When the baby, locked in a cradle-cum-cage (how did his parents come by such an object?), drags a cat through its window bars, Mr. and Mrs. Cobblepot decide they can't bear the shame, so dump him in a sewer.
From such beginnings, how else could this poor creature have developed? The Penguin is sad and pitiful. He raves like a rabid dog who should be put down for its own and everyone else's sake, and when sleazy businessman Max Shreck (Christopher Walken) moulds him into a mayoral candidate, we start waiting for bedlam to begin.
Of course this Penguin, who has flippers for hands, bears no resemblance to the suave, sophisticated gangster he was in the comics, but I didn't care. This new Penguin was interesting enough that I didn't pine for the original. He's a tragic figure, a circus freak deprived of love, and thus determined to deprive others. His interactions with Batman (Michael Keaton) expose thought-provoking truths about both characters.
Michael Keaton is my favourite Batman. He's sexier and more mysterious than Christian Bale (who I think does a great job himself).

Forget Chris Nolan and his interpretation of a "real world" Batman. The origins of this character lie within the pages of comic books and as such that's exactly what the masterful Tim Burton has delivered.

In my opinion Tim Burtons two films are marvelous, and are without doubt the definitive Batman movies.

A required addition to the collection any movie fan, and an absolute "must have" for fans of Batman.

In 1992 some silly, so-called Christian organization threw a bullying hissy fit at McDonalds for its Happy Meal deal tie-in with Tim Burton`s Batman Returns. McDonalds, true to form, prematurely withdrew its merchandising. Rumor has it that McDonalds issued a stern warning to Warner Brothers not to tap Burton for the next Batman film. For whatever reason, Warner Brothers caved into the golden arch and ,consequently, put its franchise into a decade long grave with the unwise hiring of director Joel Schumacher.

Only the fundamentalist mindset can associate Big Macs with a certain brand of morality. Looking at Batman Returns (1992), one wonders what the Christian organization was complaining about. The Bible is all throughout the film and, actually the good book itself has far more sex and violence than Batman, Tim Burton, Warner Brothers and McDonalds combined.

Regardless, Batman Returns remains the greatest cinematic comic book movie to date and one of Tim Burton's most uniquely accomplished films. Admittedly, I am not a fan of comic book movies, even if I did read comics some when I was kid, but then most kids I knew did. I was in the minority in preferring DC to Marvel, and I guess I am sort of looking forward to the new Green Lantern movie, mainly because the Green Lantern/Green Arrow comic was a favorite when I was a wee lad in the 1960s and 1970s. That was a comic that was delightfully of its time, a bit like Star Trek in espousing an ultra-liberal message with all the subtlety of a pair of brass knuckles. Even though Green Lantern himself was a bit too righteous and bland, I liked that he was obsessed with the color green and was rendered impotent by the color yellow. There was something surreal in that, and I find the insistence of realism in comics to be a huge oxymoron.
