BATMAN (2022)

Fear is a tool. When that light hits the sky, it’s not just a call. It’s a warning. For them

Vengence won’t change the past. Mine or anyone elses. People need hope

alfred and bruce wayne quotes from The Batman

 

This riveting take on Batman is, refreshingly, more of a detective story than an action spectacle — although it does offer that element, too, as well as complex characters and relevant themes. Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman makes wise adjustments in just about every respect, finding a solution for Christian Bale’s aggravating growl/whisper line delivery (Pattinson speaks softly, but he never strains) and for the soulless, gray color scheme of the Zack Snyder movies. Reeves’ movie is dark (and often rainy), but he bathes the images in a warmer brown tone, with orange and yellow highlights, bringing a weariness and a desperation to the proceedings. And, while there are many villains here, the film — unlike the 1990s sequels — never feels cluttered. The Riddler, Catwoman, Penguin (a completely disguised Colin Farrell), etc., each occupy their own space in the story.

Moreover, Batman is more human and vulnerable here, “oofing” at the impact of blows and occasionally getting winded. Blessed with Pattinson’s wounded, armored performance, this is arguably the most interesting character arc we’ve seen in a Batman movie. At the start, he sees himself as an avenging angel, but as the story goes on, he learns that things aren’t that simple, that there are gray areas. There are consequences. A third-act climax touches on the dangers of misinformation and social media, paralleling certain terrifying real-life events. Reeves needed a lot of time to lay all this out, as well as some much-needed downtime to build characters and relationships; the result is that The Batman clocks in at a jaw-dropping 2 hours and 55 minutes. But it honestly never feels too long. It’s arguably the most confident and mature Batman film to date and one of the best.
