“I want in. The thought of busting Batman makes me feel all… dirty.
Maybe I’ll just give myself a bath right here.”

Michael Keaton returns as the Caped Crusader to fight against evil and corruption. He isn’t just battling a single adversary this time around, oh no he is battling a feathered brained Penguin / Oswald Cobblepot (Danny DeVito), a nimble bi-polar secretary that plummeted to her death and returned with feline alter ego and one crazy
Max Shreck (Christopher Walken), Gotham’s new crime lord hidden behind a mask of a not so much legitimate business man.

Bruce AKA Batman (Michael Keaton) has a bit of a fetish for little Miss. Kitty and whenever the two of them around each other they can’t help it, either it’s almost kissing or scratching each others eyes out, maybe even both. Penguin finds himself a little more than a touch attracted to Cat Woman and is constantly hitting on her with some of the most inappropriate pick up lines.

Penguin and Cat Woman join up against the Batman, of course little kitty doesn’t know that the Penguin is in bed with her x-murderous boss Max Shreck. When she finds out the fish breathed Penguin is double crossing her she takes Batman’s side at the last minute merely to kill Max and save one of her nine lives for a latter date.

Burton creates an even darker crime ridden Gotham city in Batman Returns with a much-improved soundtrack. I know that many loved the sounds of Prince in Batman, but a mixture of musicians is much more appreciate and easier on the ears. The structures and architecture of Gotham is much improved and easier to make out from scene to scene, Batman has a little more sarcasm to his personality and the film itself is a little quicker paced than the first.
