BATMAN RETURNS

Watch:

What You Need To Know:

A visual work of art, BATMAN RETURNS in a gripping epic adventure full of bathos that pits the Dark Knight of Gotham City against Penguin, Catwoman and mega-millionaire Max Shreck. Although entertaining, surprisingly free from offensive language and less risque than its predecessor, the movie thrives on revenge, innuendo, subtle sadomasochism, and a perverse twist of the biblical account of Moses. Therefore, discussion of the film noir aspects of the movie is highly recommended.

Content:

(B, L, VVV, S, M, Ab) The theme that the wages of sin is death combined with biblical allegory and anti-abortion undertones is marred by approximately 6 obscenities; constant violence (cutting down villains, machine guns concealed in Batmobile, hurling villains off buildings, metallic flying disks, electrocution, Machine Gun Umbrella, car wrecks, explosions, physical assault, murder, fist fights, shootings, destruction of property, circus flame thrower, & use of stun gun); sadomasochistic overtones (Catwoman's leather body suit, use of bullwhip to hurl victims to floor, & razor-like talons on hands to claw victims) & sexual innuendo; revenge; and, rejection, distortions of biblical story of Moses.

More Detail:

BATMAN RETURNS is a gripping artistic adventure full of bathos that pits the Dark Knight of Gotham City against Penguin, Catwoman and mega-millionaire Max Shreck. Though very entertaining and less risque than its predecessor, BATMAN RETURNS is still a dark film, mixing subtle sadomasochism with revenge, innuendo and a perverse twist of the story of Moses. The story begins as baby Penguin is rejected by his parents and set adrift in a basket in the sewer. Weaned by black-beaked friends and filled with revenge, Penguin wants to kill every first-born child. Therefore, he embarks on his diabolical plan to destroy Gotham City, and its savior, Batman. However, Batman faces an even greater challenge from the Penguin’s ally, the lethally seductive Catwoman.

BATMAN RETURNS will lure many teenagers and adults to the box office. Not only is it engaging and well-produced; it also does not have extensive offensive language and overt sex. However, it is a dark film filled with violence, vengeance and perverse innuendo. While few parents will keep their teenagers away from BATMAN RETURNS, discernment of the film noir aspects of the movie is highly recommended. In fact, discerning Christians could use its storyline as a springboard for presenting the Gospel and man’s need for forgiveness.
