Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: Some fans think that the dialogue, acting, and overall tragic feel to the film gives it a weight and maturity that the other movies just don't have. Other fans believe that this movie is unreasonably dark and depressing, while simultaneously being completely ridiculous. The critics are similarly split.

** Did Max really care about his son enough to let Penguin take him, or was he smug enough to believe he'd come back unharmed, and making a heroic gesture like that would fuel his good image to the people of Gotham.

** A crude, loudmouthed tabloid celebrity inexplicably gaining mainstream popularity and running for political office despite having zero experience in public service? [[Creator/DonaldTrump Look like]] ''[[Creator/DonaldTrump Batman Returns]]'' [[Creator/DonaldTrump may have predicted the future]]! And an election to recall the Mayor? In 2003, the state of California held a recall election in a (successful) attempt to get rid of Governor Gray Davis - and who won that election? Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger! Yes, a future (as of 1992, that is) ''Batman'' villain, Creator/DannyDeVito's brother in ''Film/{{Twins}}'', ''and'' the original [[Film/TheTerminator Terminator]]... a version of which was built by Creator/StanWinston, who also did the Penguin's makeup in this film.

* OutOfCharacterMoment: Batman [[spoiler:sticking the bomb he stole from the thin clown on the circus strongman - with a ''smile''. A rather sadistic smile. Before tossing him down into the sewer to be blown up. Like the 1989 film that came before it and the films that came after it, some deaths in ''Returns'' could be said to be Batman "not saving people" or "not being able to save people" (or in the case of the ScaryBlackMan Batman killed during the 1989 film's cathedral climax after said man completely kicked his ass arguing self-defense since killing the mook was the only way to stop him) but what he did to the strongman was simply and undeniably a case of him just straight up killing someone when he didn't have to. The comic book adaptation actually changed it to Batman not killing the strongman at all by just throwing the bomb into the sewer to detonate without anyone attached to it.]]

** The Red Triangle Circus Gang, too. In 2012, the FBI designated the Juggalos (fans of Music/InsaneClownPosse) a gang!

* SugarWiki/NoProblemWithLicensedGames: The UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis and SuperNintendo game adaptations are actually fairly good, fun adaptations.

* TrueArtIsAngsty: Easily the darkest ''Batman'' film for many years, bordering on nihilistic, from the grotesque villains to the DownerEnding.

* TrueArtIsAngsty: Easily the darkest ''Batman'' film for many years, bordering on nihilistic, from the grotesque villains to the DownerEnding. It was also the darkest Creator/TimBurton movie at the time, and the backlash pushed him back to his comedic roots with ''Film/EdWood''.

** The {{Konami}} games for the Nintendo systems were well-received. For the longest time, the SuperNintendo version was considered the best Batman game ever released. ([[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum Until,]] [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity you know...]])
