Did you see it on AMC? I watched it Sunday. I still like it a lot. It doesn't get dull. I think it's still well paced.
The sequence from the point where Jack Napier says, " We've been ratted out boys!" all the way to the point where Batman leaves in a cloud of smoke on the catwalk has to be one of the best on-screen build-up's in comic book superhero films. The Danny Elfman music, they way Batman takes out the criminals one by one and Nicholson confronting The Batman. It's like clockwork. Not a moment is wasted or lost in that sequence. It's still terrific!
If Burton could've built on this instead of tearing it down when he made Batman Returns he could've matured in his film-making style. Instead I think Burton went backwards and took Batman down with him after this film.
