After witnessing his parents brutal murder as a child, millionaire-philanthropist Bruce Wayne (Michael Keaton) pledges his life to fighting crime disguised as Batman.

  • 2 stars "I don´t like this version of Batman. Probably because I don´t like the comic-inspired movies in general. Nolan´s version is the only one I like."
  • 5 stars "75th Anniversary of Batman"
