The Batman (out Mar 3) distinguishes itself from the successful Christopher Nolan-helmed Batman trilogy. It's dark, heavy, interesting… and a little frustrating. I’ve seen stronger stories. It's a one-note Batman and a not-so-exciting group of villains. The limitations of the screenplay are offset by the stellar direction of Matt Reeves and cinematography of Australian Grieg Fraser. Many instances where I thought “whoa, that’s a great shot!” Grade: B+.
