Batman 2022 honest no spoiler review
I saw it on opening night and have no regrets, I love this movie. I will admit it is a bit slow at the beginning but honestly I kind of liked that. It really showed his detective side. He is the world's greatest detective and that isn't shown enough in my opinion. There are plenty of awesome fight scenes so you get to see a that Batman. Matt Reeves continues to stun me with an amazing movie. Thinking of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the apes made no surprise to how amazing the Batman was. Matt Reeves did an amazing job with the movie with hidden subtext to how Batman and Riddler are somewhat similar. Every time Batman and Riddler meet each other it's through a glass or through a screen symbolizing that they're a reflection of each other. There was so much depth and work Matt Reeves put into the movie. The acting was absolutely amazing. Like a lot of fans I was skeptical about the actors. But they blew my mind. The acting and portrayal of every character was amazing! Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jefferey Wright, Colin Farrell, John Turturro, Andy Serkis, and every other actor in the movie was amazing. The spotlights really shines on Batman, Catwoman, and Riddler. The Dark and broody presence Robert Pattinson give as Batman is unmatched. He has a different style of Batman to Christian Bales Batman where he's s a bit more alive and has that playboy persona, Roberts Batman is Dark and broody and somewhat dead inside. Both are great portrayals. Zoe Kravitz Catwoman is great. I haven't seen many depictions of Catwoman but I like hers a lot. She goes with the cat like movements Catwoman does, She adds a subtle confidence in everything she does in the movie which is great because that really resembles Selina Kyle. Now, Paul Dano's performance was possibly my favorite. His performance showed his hauntingly, scary, horrifying even depiction of Riddler. It's honestly unlike anything I've ever seen. They were going for a Zodiac killer style Riddler and they hit that mark exactly!!! He really seemed like a Psychopath. When he's wearing his suit he emits a strong dangerous look. Without the outfit he is a playful and cheery person that would make anyone run if they saw him. I loved the three hours of film. I get for some casual viewers who aren't big fans of The Batman they may not like it, But for fans you'll love it. The three acts separate it into three amazing parts. All in All this is an amazing movie and Batman being my favorite superhero I am more than satisfied but still craving more. Good job Matt Reeves and the rest of The Batman crew.
