The Batman (2022)

Watch The Batman Full Movie Online

In his second year of fighting crime, Batman uncovers corruption in Gotham City that connects to his own family while facing a serial killer known as the Riddler.

Ironically, in the aim of trying to keep this short, The Batman is quite a good movie, with genuinely funny moments, riddles, and one-liners – especially in the first act – in all that “grittiness”, under lit spectacle, and persistent darkness, however, this movie, hate it or love it, is an undeniable replica and rehash of what Christopher Nolan has already given us, with splashes of Gotham. Yes, The Batman centers its Batman theme primarily around him being a “detective”, but, Nolan already gave us Batman being a detective, and truthfully, he did it better, even though he didn’t center his theme around that characteristic.

Just simply even looking at a Batman Begins vs The Batman head-to-head comparison, Batman Begins easily wins:

The Better Batman: Christian Bale (Batman Begins).

The Better Bruce Wayne: Christian Bale (Batman Begins).

The Better Alfred: Michael Caine (Batman Begins).

The Better Gordon: Gary Oldman (Batman Begins).

The Better Story: Batman Begins.

The Better Batmobile: Batman Begins.

The Better length and pace: Batman Begins.

And The Dark Knight Rises vs The Batman as far as Selina Kyle goes: Zoe Kravitz was good, but Anne Hathaway stole the show.

Yes, The Batman is set in the early stages of Batman’s mantle, but in the context of artistry, that unfortunately, is no excuse, as this is a chosen vision by Matt Reeves, not one forced on him.

When it comes to Gotham, The Batman’s set design felt almost exactly like that of Gotham’s, and though it was really good, I suspect Gotham’s set design was still better. As for The Riddler and Penguin’s Gotham and The Batman comparison, this is the only aspect I believe The Batman may have done better (and that’s only may have), which says a whole lot, because The Riddler and Penguin on Gotham are amazing, but Paul Dano and Colin Farrell truly played their parts with some spectacular poise.

From there, The Batman replicates the relationship between Batman and Catwoman so closely that towards the end, their interaction and even script looks and almost sounds exactly the same.

The ending of The Batman essentially replicates the ending of Batman Begins, with the same villain.

The score of The Batman is extremely reminiscent of Batman Begins, that even certain triads sound almost the same, and then switch to different notes and melodies.

The flood in The Batman mirrors the water vaporization in Batman Begins.

And, the hostility Bruce tends to show Alfred, was done pretty much the same way in The Batman, as was in Batman Begins, but as the pattern of this review reveals, the latter did that better too.

Again, The Batman is a good movie, but honestly, it is simply just an enjoyable and competent knockoff of Christopher Nolan’s iteration. Christopher Nolan did it right, and it sadly somehow makes this movie feel, somewhat unneeded, though it was fun to have gotten it.

And though I realize that most people will definitely disagree clearly, I personally feel that Matt Reeves failed in delivering anything different, or different enough to warrant a new and fresh perspective, and essentially doubled down on an approach we’ve already seen before, and seen better, pun intended. But, I’ll repeat, The Batman is a good movie nonetheless.
