Batman ★★★

I'm sorry but I still don't buy Michael Keaton as Batman/Bruce Wayne. Not only does he not look anything like Bruce Wayne, I just can't imagine him being Batman. His portrayal doesn't strike me as someone who is obsessed enough to be beating criminals to a pulp every night. I hate to be criticizing Keaton but his Batman/Bruce Wayne has absolutely no chemistry whatsoever with Alfred or Vicki Vale. His performance was so wooden and his delivery of the sub-par dialogue was stiff as can be.

Best part of this continues to be Jack Nicholson's Joker. He fully embraces the character and brings much needed life to the movie. I don't really care for the Joker's "origin" story in this because all that becomes irrelevant to me once he's actually the Clown Prince of Crime.
