Completely misjudged this, probably because the pacing is so relentless - not a film to watch if you’re already feeling anxious! I need a rest now.
Although not perfect - there are a few plot contrivances that bug me and some dodgy lines of dialogue - the strengths of 'The Batman', namely the pacing, visuals, music and performances, are so strong that I don’t care. Definitely a film that benefits from a second viewing. Looking forward to Part 2.
