Batman is the kind of character that is very difficult to get right. And after Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, the bar for the character has been set even higher. Former Patriots player Darius Butler did not enjoy the latest version of the Caped Crusader. 

The director Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson have given this movie their all. The cinematography is top-notch. Reeves has tried to make the film artsy. But this movie has split the superhero fans in two. The hardcore comic-book fans love the attention to detail. But the casual fans are too busy comparing it to Nolan’s masterpiece.

A different take on Batman

Fans have grown accustomed to seeing larger-than-life figures when watching a superhero film. Titans fighting aliens, a hero traveling through time and different dimensions to save the world. But with Batman, the fans can relate to a lot because he is just some guy in a bat suit. Batman has no superpowers. He relies on his brilliant mind and fighting techniques.

Criticism was inevitable for the latest Batman film. Fans had a really difficult time accepting Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne. His predecessors, Ben Affleck and Christian Bale were irreplaceable. Still, the young actor gave one of his best performances to date. 

The latest Batman movie focused on a more boots-to-the-ground type story. The villains in this movie also did a brilliant job of depicting the crime-driven Gotham City. Some fans enjoyed watching a superhero overcome odds with sheer will like Batman. Others are more into guns and blazing types of stories. It is one of the reasons the fans are split on Pattinson’s Batman.
