Tim Burton directs this big screen outing for the caped crusader. The streets of Gotham City are no longer safe for criminals, who are being picked off by a masked vigilante in a rubber suit - dubbed 'Batman' by the press. Reporter Alexander Knox (Robert Wuhl) teams with photographer Vicki Vale (Kim Basinger) in an attempt to discover Batman's true identity - an investigation which leads them to the door of mysterious millionaire Bruce Wayne (Michael Keaton). Meanwhile, crime boss Carl Grissom's (Jack Palance) attempt to rid himself of untrustworthy henchman Jack Napier (Jack Nicholson) does not go according to plan, and after emerging physically - and mentally - disfigured from a vat of chemicals, Napier reinvents himself as the psychotic Joker...
Thanks to the ambitious vision of director Tim Burton, the blockbuster hit of 1989 delivers the goods despite an occasionally spotty script, giving the caped crusader a thorough overhaul in keeping with the crime fighter's evolution in DC Comics. Michael Keaton strikes just the right mood as the brooding "Dark Knight" of Gotham City; Kim Basingerplays Gotham's intrepid reporter Vicki Vale; and Jack Nicholson goes wild as the maniacal and scene-stealing Joker, who plots a take over of the city with his lethal Smilex gas. Triumphant Oscar-winning production design by the late Anton Furst turns Batman into a visual feast, and Burton brilliantly establishes a darkly mythic approach to Batman's legacy. Danny Elfman's now-classic score propels the action with bold, muscular verve. --Jeff ShannonSee all Product description

And the fact that this movie has a steelbook case is just a wonderful bonus.
He seemed like a man that really could live in the real word. He was already unpleasant before he had to wear the
make-up because of the burns. His skips, twists and turns were very creepy!
Was looking for Batman blu ray 2 disc so could get all the proper extras eg, behind the scenes, commentaries, music vids etc. Not an easy job to find ( so ordered new copy from Italy)
Italian copy but can easily change everything to English sound versions and text. Get to hear Batman and Joker
gabbling away in Italian or the other languages too
I bought brand new and came in perfect condition with all the proper extra's and in reasonable time
5 stars for product and service and 5 stars for the film too
I remember about 10 years ago with my mate going to see the Daredevil Film as he is very much into Daredevil, as I can well remember the anticipation and excitement that we both felt as the opening credits were about to start .I have timeless affection for this movie because it is such a masterpiece in the concept, the design of the sets, the story line and each time that I watch Michael Keaton in this film. I feel that I am 19 years old again, caught up in the excitement, the drama and the twists and turns that made this film such a classic and a joy towatch. One can only wonder what would had happen if Michael Keaton had chosen to play Batman for a 3rd time under Tim Burton ?
One can only wonder and imagine. This is my ALL TIME favourite superhero action film which I would place on an equal par with the first and best Superman film with Christopher Reeve in the spandex and blue tights.
