The Batman

Batman investigates corruption in Gotham City and battles the Riddler in a slow-burning noir thriller.


Why watch this film?

Forget Christopher Nolan's Batman, or even Zack Snyder's version. 'The Batman' brings a new interpretation of the famous Dark Knight. Inspired by noir cinema and films like 'Zodiac', 'Se7en' and 'Chinatown', the production delivers a slow-burning story, with an investigation into the corrupt underworld of Gotham City politics and the mafia. Directed by Matt Reeves (of 'Planet of the Apes: War'), the feature film addresses the second year of the Caped Crusader's performance, in an excellent interpretation by Robert Pattinson - who lends his most dramatic side here, bringing weight to the hero. To this is added a cast of weight, with Andy Serkis and Jeffrey Wright standing out - but with Zoë Kravitz's Catwoman stealing the show. The action sequences, although rarer, are breathtaking, carrying a certain pomp that fits, yes, the DC character. When all of this is added together, we have a more detective version of Batman, in an enveloping atmosphere movie that, if it does not make us feel better at its end, does carry in its conclusion a message of positive reflection. It may not be the Batman you were expecting to see, but you will certainly be happy to find him.
