This Wednesday (2/3/2022), The Batman (2022) finally landed on the big screen in Indonesia and has been watched by many foreign movie critics. According to them, the appearance of the batman this time has an interesting style and a quite tense story.
It has been a highly anticipated movie project since 2020, The Batman has managed to secure a broadcast schedule this March after being delayed for a year. Being another new incarnation of Batman on the big screen, the director promises a detective story that is thicker with darker nuances.
Was the promise kept? According to the critics who watched earlier; yes, no doubt about it. From a handful of big names international movie watchers, there are two words that keep appearing in their reviews: stylish and tense.
Eric Eisenberg of CinemaBlend, for example, gave The Batman a 4.5 out of 5 star rating because of the story that did not hesitate to plunge audiences into the center of Gotham city full of criminal conflicts. Matt Reeves’ decision to jump over the scene of the deaths of Thomas and Martha Wayne is also considered successful in presenting a story that is more action-packed and has a unique style of speech.
Likewise with Alex Stedman from IGN, who called the movie The Batman a ‘masterpiece’ among the existing line of superhero movies. Featuring a more serious and plausible detective story, Alex calls The Batman a suspenseful “psychological crime thriller.”
Different from the Batman figure played by Ben Affleck, Robert Pattinson’s version of Batman takes a separate setting from the main line of the DCEU cinema universe. Having the freedom to develop characters everywhere makes this story written by Matt Reeves and Peter Craig the best Batman movie, beating Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight.
