PG-13 | | Action, Adventure
The Dark Knight of Gotham City begins his war on crime with his first major enemy being the clownishly homicidal Joker.
Originally, the character of Vicki Vale wasn't supposed to be part of the third act, basically. She didn't into the tower. Kim Basinger convinced the filmmakers otherwise and initiated script rewrites.
Tourist Dad: I'm sorry, this is my cab.
Tourist Dad: Listen, I was here first!
Tourist Dad: Oh, God! Oh, taxi? Taxi!
When Batman fights with the Joker's men atop the Cathedral at the end, the fights are very loud and involve all sorts of yelling, punching, kicking, and object breakage. The Joker and Vicki are seen dancing a mere few feet away, yet both are entirely oblivious to Batman's presence until after the fighting is over.
The opening credits appear as the camera goes through/around a giant Batman symbol.
