Final Fight Entrance
At Gotham Square, Riddler’s followers are open firing with no hope being there. Suddenly the roof explodes as the Bat drops down and starts taking them on one by one. The build up to it is perfect as we see Batman in action taking everyone out. The scene is only made better as after the fight Batman helps save the civilians.
Can’t Fight City Halloween
The movie opens with a tense narration as we see a montage of crime taking place in Gotham city. This is first where we hear Pattinson’s voice as Batman and his experience being a vigilante in Gotham for two years. It’s a chilling sequence that gets everything right about the character.
After we get his introduction, we are treated to a bunch of thugs harassing an elderly gentleman at the train station. We then see sound coming off in the background as the footsteps slowly start to become more audible and the Batman enters out of the shadows. This is where we get the iconic “I’m vengeance” line.
After Batman is apprehended by the GCPD for interfering with the Gil Colson situation, he wakes up to find his mask being taken off by a policeman. Waking up aggressively, he gets taken into a corner by Gordon who tells him that he has to get out of there. What follows is an intense chase that sees Batman use his wingsuit for the first time.
The Batman not only has the best Caped Crusader introduction, but also the best Batmobile introduction. After Penguin starts closing in on him, you quickly hear a jet engine roaring in the background as the car starts revving up. The chase followed by it is just the cherry on top of the cake.
We can’t wait to see Robert Pattinson return as the Dark Knight in The Batman 2. With this we finish off the list and wish him a very happy birthday.
