Add me to the list of people who were disappointed with Batman.
Having read "The Dark Knight Returns" (which was great ;-) a couple
of years ago, I expected a lot when I heard that the movie was
supposed to be similar. It did not live up to this. Keaton
was not dark. Keaton was confused. The scene where he was
trying to tell Vicky Vale that he was really Batman reminded me
of Mr. Mom where Keaton is trying to explain to his son that
he'll get him another "wooby". The effects were good in general
with some glaring exceptions (the batwing was awful). It also
has some major inconsistencies with past stories. This story
was supposed to be the introduction of Batman to the world (Gordon
and O'hara have never heard of him until now). The Joker was
always Batman's arch rival (even in "The Dark Knight Returns" where
Batman is supposed to be old and Robin long dead). Killing off
the Joker was just plain stupid. They may bring him back in
sequels but they won't ever come up with an explanation that
satisfies me. I expect they won't even try.
I'd like to see them do "The Dark Knight Returns" (or parts of it
