Leighton Trent’s review published on Letterboxd:
"This town needs an enema!"
Operatic - Danny Elfman all day
Sardonic - Jacky boy for the win
Atmospheric for days - that production design though 👌🏼
Burton's first take on Batman isn't the better of his two, but it slaps damn hard compared to the two after this and Batman Returns and much more so than the two titles to most recently feature him. He embraces the cartoonish aspects of the comics as well as the original live action show and film and turns them on their head to give every single boy and girl that has grown up with this character a singular vision - a lavish capitilistic noir/gangster-esque throw back - of what this character should look like with Hollywood's full bells and whistles behind it.

It looks like an 80's movie and feels like an 80's movie and for once that's not an insult.
