Robert Pattinson as Batman in “The Batman” that was released March 4, 2022

If you’re wanting an action, murder-mystery, thriller, “The Batman” is the perfect movie for you to watch.

Over the course of “The Batman’s” opening weekend, it earned $248.5 million in three days globally, making it one of the leading international industry openings of 2022. 

As someone who has never been into the DC Multiverse, my expectations going into this movie weren’t extremely high. I had heard avid DC fans talk and hype the new movie up, so I thought I would review “The Batman” as someone who is just a fan of a good action movie.

“The Batman” is an almost three-hour film consisting of action, crime, and suspense. Although the movie is longer than most, the on-edge fight scenes and crime scene tension is more than enough to keep you intrigued throughout the entire course of the movie.  

If you love any series or movies that have anything to do with crime and murder-mystery, this film will pull you in and will make you try to solve the riddles and mysteries before Batman does. 

Robert Pattinson, the actor that plays The Batman in this 2022 film, puts a little bit of a twist on Bruce Wayne’s character. Pattinson adds a dark, eerie ambiance to Bruce Wayne and carries that same mood throughout the entire film. 

With the tension and suspense of the crimes taking place in the film, “The Batman” has the perfect amount of the scare factor to fulfill the itch of anticipation. 

Overall, “The Batman” is an entertaining movie that will keep you hooked throughout the entirety of the film. No matter what cinematic universe you favor, this film will leave you amazed and amused even before the end credits roll.
