On its 374th reboot, the new Batman keeps its gritty tone, its dark mood, Robert Pattinson doing a beter job as the Batman than most of his predecessors, and a very good Bruce Wayne (not as flashy as Christian Bale though, but still very good).
While the cast is filled with great presences, Zoë Kravitz, Jeffrey Wright, Andy Serkis (as Alfred, wow!), John Turturro, Paul Dano and others, their performances are not as strong as Robert Pattinson’s. Colin Farrell, though, is fucking amazing as The Penguin.
I liked a lot the music, the tempo, the setting, at some times it feels a lot like a film noir, with Pattinson in the role of the worn-out detective. The fight scenes are well done and generally speaking, it feels like a Batman should feel. And it stands tall on its own, being a strong Batman movie and a very entertaining watch, even if you don’t like superhero movies. Five popcorns and a bat 🦇
