BBFC Ratings info
BATMAN is a US fantasy action adventure, from 1989, in which Batman fights against the Joker. Violence: Scenes of violence include shootings, fistfights, and a pen being thrown into a person's neck. In one sequence, a man is electrocuted and there is brief aftermath sight of his charred skeletal remains. Threat and horror: The character of the Joker has an intimidating appearance and threatens various people. There are occasional horror moments, such as bodies with rictus grins and a woman's face disfigured from acid. There are occasional mild sex references and innuendo. Language includes 'dick', 'bitch' and 'shit'.

Sex & Nudity
Sex & Nudity Reason
There is a picture of a nude woman on the wall. Breasts are visible. A few kisses. Some mild sexual references scattered throughout. Such as "Where have you been spending your nights" and "Never rub another man's rhubarb" or "If you want me to pose nude, you'll need a camera with a long lens". {Quite mild compared to its sequel "Batman Returns"} The Prince songs in the background have very blatant sexual lyrics. The songs are "Trust" playing during the Joker's carnival scene and "Scandalous" which plays during the end credits. In the background and only noticeable if one listens closely. At the beginning, a streetwalking prostitute tries to accost a young boy but his parents shuffle him away. Very brief and only shown to express the decadence of the streets of Gotham. During their first date, Vicki spends the night at Bruce Wayne's Manor. The two are shown cuddling in bed (fully clothed) and wake up in certain areas of the room. It is somewhat ambiguous as to whether sexual activity happened or not.

Violence & Gore
Violence & Gore Reason
At one point, the Joker strangles a charred corpse of the man he has just killed and says, "I'm glad you're dead!" While battling the Joker's henchman in a cathedral, Batman battles one henchman and is smashed through wooden structures until he gains the upper hand by throwing the henchman down the stairway to his presumed death. Moderate, stylised violence overall. Joker shot at Batman the bullet flies back and in the face of the joker blood splatters out. After that for a time it's very Hard to Look at him An acrobat with knives attached to his boots tries to stab Batman but Batman tazes him in the crotch and knocks him unconscious. The Wayne couple is shot and killed by a petty thief, leaving Bruce alone with his dead parents. There are several fighting scenes that include Batman, most of which involve the Joker and his henchmen. Batman uses martial arts techniques in numerous fight scenes throughout the film. Many people are shot dead during the film. A man's face is bloodied and burned after a ruptured pipe spews chemicals onto it. There is a brief closeup shot of blood-stained surgical implements. At one point the Joker shoots someone dead, then fires multiple gunshots into his corpse in a comedic fashion. It is shortly made evident from bullet holes in the window that most of the Joker's comedy gunshots missed. The Joker electrocutes a man and there are several shots of his charred and blackened corpse. The Joker stabs somebody in the throat with a quill pen. The Joker carries a pistol and uses it many times throughout the film. Many people are killed throughout the film using the Joker's lethal laughing gas, which leaves a grotesque grin on their face. This includes a mass gassing attempt on the street with giant balloons filled with the gas, but Batman manages to remove them from the area with his Batwing. One of the Joker's men attacks Batman using twin swords. Another one attempts to do a flying kick into Batman after activating retractable blades that extend from the bottom of his boots. Another of the Joker's men attacks Batman with a heavy chain. A factory full of the Joker's henchmen is blown up, and the occupants are presumably killed in the blast. The Joker shoots down the Batwing, and when Batman emerges from the flaming wreckage his face has several bloody gashes on it. These injuries can clearly be seen on his face for the remaining duration of the film. Batman knocks out one of the Joker's thugs by hitting him in the crotch with a telescopic melee weapon that extends from his glove. At the end of the film Batman brutally beats up the Joker. He punches him repeatedly and at one point smashes his head through a wall. The Joker's face is bloodied and bruised from this, and he is seen spitting mouthfuls of blood onto the floor. At the end of the film, Batman ties a gargoyle to Joker's leg and after some struggle, Joker falls off the ladder of his helicopter to his death. It shows his dead body with blood on his head. The Fight scene with the henchman who wears sunglasses is very brutal. He grabs Batman on the neck, throws him through wooden structures and brutally punch him several times in the stomach, and two times in the face. The last punch is into the groin, then the henchman knees Batman into the face. The Joker wears a flower on his lapel that shoots acid. We see the scars on his mistress' face which are presumably the result of an acid attack. The Joker plummets to his death at the end of the film. We do not see him hit the ground, but we get a lingering shot of his broken corpse partially embedded in the pavement below, with some blood around the head area.

Profanity Reason
One use of "Goddamn" The Joker says "Crap" at least 6 times in one scene, for comedic effect. 2 uses of "shit", 2 uses of "bitch", 2 uses of "Christ" and 1 use of "Dick" several other uses of "Jesus" or "God"

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking Reason
Two muggers are seen counting their loot on a rooftop. One of them is smoking a cigarette. Eckhardt is shown smoking a cigar, which he aggressively flicks at Knox. There is a party scene where characters are seen drinking champagne. Grissom gulps down a glassful of whisky and is seen reaching for the bottle to pour himself a refill. The Joker is seen drinking a martini when Alicia returns from her shopping trip. Harvey Dent is seen smoking.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
Joker uses his deadly laughing gas to kill two models and a news anchor. Pictures of the models' bodies are seen with horribly disfiguring smiles, and the news anchor is shown laughing herself to death. Her body is also shown with a disturbing and unnatural smile. The murder of Bruce Wayne's parents could be upsetting for some viewers. A gun is pointed at a child Bruce Wayne. Not many frightening or intense scenes, they are all pretty fake as this is an old movie The Joker shakes a man's hand with some sort of electric buzzer that not only shocks the man, but fries him to a charred crisp. The blackened, skeletal corpse is then seen for quite some time as the Joker talks to it before mocking it and strangling it saying, "I'm glad you're dead!" The entire scene is quite dark and bizarre. This film has a dark tone. Batman can appear frightening at times and of course, the Joker will unsettle the audience. However, this is all quite tame compared to the follow-up, "Batman Returns", which is much, MUCH darker than this film and has more disturbing content. Gotham City is dark and oppressive and its occupants are terror-stricken by the Joker's reign. The overall atmosphere is quite bleak and intimidating. The scene where Alicia removes her mask to reveal her acid-scarred face is quite scary for young kids. It is especially dark since it is implied that she is connsenual to Joker's unseen mutilation of her face. It is later implied that she commits suicide at Joker's behest. Batman himself is very dark and mysterious in this film. He often lurks out of sight in the shadows, then appears out of nowhere to take down a bad guy. He also murders countless henchmen over the film's time. His presence is quite intimidating and might frighten some. Some of the fight scenes are quite brutal. Especially one towards the end of the film where a particularly large Joker thug wearing sunglasses goes berserk and almost kills Batman, at one point slamming him into a wall and repeatedly punching him.
