Trivia

  • Sam Hamm's original screenplay draft had the Penguin and Catwoman going after hidden treasure. Dissatisfied with that, Tim Burton brought in Daniel Waters, writer of Heathers (1988), who came up with the concept of an evil business mogul backing a bid for the Mayor's office by the Penguin.

I own it and love! It was one of my first ones I owned! I never saw it in theaters since I wasn't born! I wanted to experience it in THEATERS, and I was not disappointed! I LOVED IT AND I WILL DO IT AGAIN!

Been a Batman Fanboy since I was 6 years old and saw it at a New Years Eve Party. Every time I get a chance to see a Batman movie at the theater I go. Hadn't seen Returns at the theater since opening Day in 92 when I was 9 years old.

Metacritic

The new film is simply more confident, more idiosyncratically dark, weird, gnarled and twisted than Batman. And because it's more obviously permeated by Burton's style and sensibility, it's also more fun. [19 June 1992, p.47]

Burton uses the summer's most explosively entertaining movie to lead us back into the liberating darkness of dreams.

Our rooting interest is not for any macho act by Batman to save the city but for each character to achive some sort of emotional peace. That makes for a strange but refreshing action story.
