Sat down and watched it… and I have to be honest, I was not expecting it to live up to the hype.
This is the first Batman Horror film. It has more in common with Seven and Silence of the Lambs than any super hero film I’ve watched. I love that they made Gotham look like a shit hole. It’s gross, and slimy and trashy.
I liked it so much, I sat down and watched it again 2 nights later.
The only thing I could have lived without was the Joker scene. I realize he’s a core big bad, but I thought it unnecessary. I would rather have seen Zsasz or Mad Hatter in Arkham.
And I hope the sequel keeps the horror themes. I’d love to see Professor Pyg.
