So, I have now viewed this movie twice (actually seeing it the 2nd time). It is one of DC comics better films as they still struggle to mimic Marvel movies. Lots of high action scenes that are best seen in IMAX – 3d even better (if it’s offered). The storyline is okay yet with some good DC humor. Yes, there is an end credit scene that was the best part of this film to me.
P.S. I went to see #TheBatman again tonight (Friday) in Dolby (great experience as well); I will now say that I enjoy Pattinson at the Batman (not so much as Bruce Wayne)! He does a great job and has good chemistry with Zoe (Cat Woman). The action scenes are good; the end credit scene is still sucky, IJS. I have upgraded my stars from 3.5 to 4 (probably should be 4.5 but I’m a Marvel fan 😉
I’m not knowledgeable of this DC character (or sidekicks) so I had no preconceived expectations. I was pleasantly surprised that is was funny and entertaining! I liked the mentions and no-face cameos of other DC characters but it would have been better had they shown faces (I realize Batman is up for a re-cast from Ben and a possible re-cast of Superman yet Aquaman seems solid and no cameo from Jason). I saw a very early screening, therefore, I didn’t see it in IMAX or Dolby. Worth checking out. NOTE: there are two end credit scenes to enjoy.
4.5 stars out of 5
