|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Nasty, nihilistic nightmare movie about an abandoned freak baby who grows up to be The Penguin--a deadly threat to Gotham City, especially when he teams up with megalomaniac Max Schreck (Walken). Meanwhile, Batman finds a more personal enemy in Catwoman. Rich performances, dazzling production design, and occasional cleverness can't make up for a dark, mean-spirited (and often incoherent) screenplay. Followed by Keatonless BATMAN FOREVER.
