This is truly a Fantasy/Comic movie-masterpiece. First of all- the
cast- Jack Nicholson shines in the role of the manic and crazy Jocker.
Nicholsons character is truly amazing- like a mixture of his former
roles/characters in "Chinatown" (Jake Gittes), "One Flew Over the
Nest" (Randle McMurphy), "Prizzie` s honor" (C.Partanna), "the Witches of
Eastwick" (Daryl Van Horn) and of course "The Shining" (Jack Torrance)-
(the character) still keeps his own style. Michael Keaton also proves to
the ideal type for Burtons`s Batman. He reminds on the dark Batman from
"Dark Knight" Batman comics, and is the exact opposite of Batman
by Adam West in the 70`s. Second, Tim Burton created a unique
exactly matching to the characters. Some people say that this movie is to
dark, but I wouldn`t agree.
I must not forget to mention the exciting Batman Theme composed by Danny
Burton`s Batman, differnt from all the other Comic-hero movies, like
Spiderman, Superman, Flash or Hulk, provides a refreshing character
One of the best movies in the 80`s.
