  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Kilmer takes over the role that Michael Keaton abandoned in the third installment of the widely successful Batman series. Two twisted villains

DVD Picture:
Both the previous LaserDisc, first reviewed in Issue 17, and DVD versions appear remarkably the same in character. The subtly more detailed and sharper DVD heightens the dazzling visuals and production design, with frames swathed in character-identifying neon. The picture is awash with a kaleidoscope of eye-popping color. Blacks are deep and solid. Neither version exhibits any apparent noise, though the LaserDisc has a few minor artifacts. Shadow detail and contrast are excellent. Through the component video output, color fidelity is slightly improved on the DVD for a visual experience that is stunning. Both the DVD anamorphic and letterbox, and LaserDisc aspect ratios have been recomposed at 1.78:1, and 1.95:1, respectively.
