and I usually don't talk about it publicly if I don't like an
entertainment "product". But I've noticed that in recent years, many
writers in the entertainment sector don't put much effort into
developing stories for a wide audience. I think that's a shame, because
as an author you should always have an interest in inspiring as many
people as possible without "insulting" them by denying their
intelligence. And now to the new Batman film: It does exactly the latter
and also robs Batman of all the qualities that have characterized the
character over the years. It's impossible for me to list all the things
that could be improved about this film...I don't want to either. But
I'll give a few examples of what I don't think should be done in a
- Completely rob Batman of his humanity that he doesn't seem to care
about a woman's corpse.
- At the same time giving him disturbing human stalker traits when it
comes to Catwoman.
- Don't let him, as the "world's greatest detective", solve any riddles
without outside help.
- Portray his butler Alfred as more intelligent than Bruce Wayne.
- Move on a story not by intelligent decisions of characters but instead by coincidence (or decisions of the villains)
- Make a film visually beautiful, but then not put the same effort into STORY.
- Make all characters act superficial and stupid.
Surely there are many out there who think the film is good... there's no
other way to explain the film's good rating. But I think with every entertainment project STORY should come first which is not the case with this film.
Especially if the film was preceded by great Batman films just a few
years earlier, such as Batman Begins or The Dark Knight who did work on so many levels. Just my two cents.
