The Batman Movie Was Not That Bad

The Batman 2022 has been a hot topic as of late. Many people have mixed opinions on it. A lot of people were disappointed with the casting of Robert Pattinson as Batman. The movie was almost three hours long. It is currently on HBO Max if you would like to take a look at it yourself. 

I very much liked this movie. I liked the fact that the movie seemed realistic. The detective aspect really had me at the edge of my seat throughout the movie. The casting of Robert Pattinson wasn’t bad at all. I think he played a decent Batman. He has that intimidating stare that perfectly fits Batman. His Bruce Wayne wasn’t the best, but in the movie, Bruce Wayne doesn’t seem to even know who Bruce Wayne is. 

The casting of Paul Dano as the Riddler was genius. He was very into the character. A lot of his character’s inspiration was the Zodiac Killer, and you can see that. When his face gets revealed, you get a sense of shock because he looks like an ordinary person. The casting of Colin Farrell as the Penguin was good as well. He was a bit of comedy relief while also being a more realistic portrayal of the Penguin.  

Overall, I thought the movie was great. It was definitely not as bad as people were expecting or making it out to be. I would recommend this movie. It’s currently on HBO Max if you would like to watch it.
