(at around 50 mins) Shreck introduces the Penguin to his campaign staff for a mayoral run. The Penguin asks him: "Elections happen in November; is this not late December?" Shreck waves his hand and says: "Don't worry about it." After all, it wouldn't be the first time a sitting public official was removed from office. Shreck does mention to the mayor early in the film (at around 9 mins) that he has enough signatures to force a recall election, but doesn't have an issue or a candidate to justify one with. The Penguin provides both of these, by using his gang to make the mayor appear soft on crime, and endearing himself to the people of Gotham. See more »
The framing of Batman for the kidnap and murder of the Ice Princess seems successful, as the police go to apprehend Batman afterwards. Not knowing about the hacking of the Batmobile, the police then think that Batman has caused injuries to many police officers by driving the Batmobile into them. However, this is never mentioned again: the police do not pursue Batman even though they think that he's committed serious crimes. See more »
Reportedly, the South Korean VHS edition of "Batman Returns" remains infamous between Korean audiences because of its stupid cut by the video company: the movie runs 126m., but in order to put in on a 120m. cassette, the company cut the whole sequence of Selina's transformation to Catwoman. In theaters, it was intact. See more »
Born so deformed that even his parents don't want him, a young baby is hurled into the sewers of Gotham City in the hope that he will die. But, incredibly enough, he is taken in by some penguins who live right there in the sewers and grows up into a repulsive creature known as "the Penguin" (Danny DeVito). And his first action is to kidnap the wealthiest man in Gotham City by the name of "Max Shreck" (Christopher Walken) and blackmail him into helping him rediscover his roots--or at least that's what he wants people to believe. But Max isn't the type who is easily controlled and instead attempts to manipulate him for his own evil schemes instead. At the same time Max Shreck's secretary "Selena Kyle" (Michelle Pfeiffer) happens to stumble upon a secret file that Max has which details an illegal scheme he is planning and she ends up being thrown out of a skyscraper to her apparent death. But she is somehow revived by some stray cats and having now gone totally insane decides to take her revenge upon Max as a costumed villainess called "the Catwoman". Needless to say, Gotham City isn't big enough for 3 such villains and it's up to "Batman" (Michael Keaton) to somehow save Gotham City from all of them. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that a dark and gloomy atmosphere is almost a prerequisite for a "Batman movie". However, this film probably went a bit too far in that department-and it got even more dark and gloomy the further on it went. Additionally, I didn't especially care for the rather bizarre ending either. Those issues aside, I thought all of the actors just mentioned performed credibly enough with Danny DeVito probably standing out the most in my opinion. Likewise, although I still believe Julie Newmar was the best actress to ever be cast as "Catwoman", I must admit that Michelle Pfeiffer wasn't too bad. But that's just my opinion. In any case, given all of the previously mentioned good and bad points I have rated this movie accordingly. Slightly above average.
