The Batman came to theaters on March 4, 2022. This mysterious and puzzling movie stars actor Robert Pattinson as Batman. 

The movie tells the story of a killer who is terrorizing Gotham City. The killer, The Riddler, goes after rich people that he views as corrupt. He leaves behind cryptic clues, specifically for Batman and forces him to try to decode these messages in an attempt to save people. 

The main characters have to deal with loss and grief throughout the movie and it takes the audience through a plethora of emotions. The relatable emotions mixed with the violence keeps the audience captivated. 

The setting of Gotham City is familiar, but made new with Robert Pattinson’s engaging acting. He brings Batman to life in this exciting movie. He uses his body language and voice to convey different emotions that make it seem more realistic. 

This movie is enthralling and forces you to pay attention to the small details. It creates a feeling of mystery and excitement. The dark and moody atmosphere created keeps the audience in suspense. 

As the plot twists and turns, the viewer follows Batman’s battles and his journey to protecting the city he calls home. 

The familiar character and the well known actor have quickly brought life back to this popular franchise and popularity to this specific movie. The Batman made $128.5 million in its opening weekend, and was the largest opening in 2022 so far. 

The ending created questions about the future of Gotham and how Batman will continue his legacy. 

I strongly recommend this engaging movie for anyone interested in a captivating and foreboding film.
