The Bat, the Cat, the Penguin.
Having defeated the Joker, Batman now faces the Penguin - a warped and deformed individual who is intent on being accepted into Gotham society. Crooked businessman Max Schreck is coerced into helping him become Mayor of Gotham and they both attempt to expose Batman in a different light. Selina Kyle, Max's secretary, is thrown from the top of a building and is transformed into Catwoman - a mysterious figure who has the same personality disorder as Batman. Batman must attempt to clear his name, all the time deciding just what must be done with the Catwoman.

Danny DeVito makes me really enjoy this film. Like, seriously I love him in this movie. Sure, the character is turned into a super Tim Burton style villain, but I don't care. It is hilariously engaging. So yea, this one certainly turns a bit stronger into the Burton style altogether with the first one's success. I think after that, he got to do exactly what he wanted. Some directors do a better job when restrained a bit. Otherwise he gets pretty out there and all his films feel exactly the same. A lot of people complain because of that, but it doesn't bother me that much. Probably just because I've seen it so I don't walk into the viewing expecting something else anymore. But yea, Penguin, Catwoman, Batman, Alfred, and CHRISTOPHER WALKEN all keep me engaged throughout.

A typical Burton movie: sometimes fun, but most of the time rather strange and surrealistic! Additionally I always was aware that I was watching a batman movie instead of being pulled into batman's world. It's not a bad movie but I would have liked if the comic book background would not be so obvious.

And compared to the terrific "Batman Begins" or "The Dark Knight" "Batman Returns" is just mediocre...
