Sean Kelly100 - Watched the film multiple times as a kid on VHS (the first one my family bought), though it was the only Batman film I had never seen theatrically. I just remedied that. Been many years since I last saw the film and I had forgotten how awesome Jack Nicholson is as The Joker.
Sober Film Critic James Brown97(full review)
CinemaVisitor Erik95 - Childhood favourite. It is not as serious and epic as Nolan's adaptation but it is still great fun to watch.

Steve Habrat91 - A flawed but fun crowd-pleaser for diehard Batman fans and the average movie-going public alike.

Dan O'Neill75 - Though it isnít as emotionally involving as you would expect from such a dark and atmospheric superhero flick such as this, Batman benefits from some beautiful set-pieces from Tim Burton, great performances from Nicholson and Keaton, and some fun summer blockbuster entertainment to hold you over.
