In the crime-ridden Gaohan City, there is a name that makes criminals shudder: Batman. Batman (Michael Keaton) shuttles through the darkest corners and fights evil everywhere. In an operation against crime, Batman caused the gangster Niba (Jack Nicholson) to fall into the chemical pool. As a result, Niba’s facial nerves were damaged, and he became a smiling man who always grinned, known as the “clown”.
The “clown” killed the leader of the gang and controlled the underworld in the entire Gaohan City. “Joker” used chemicals to make people laugh to death. He attacked the museum in this way. Fortunately, Batman arrived in time to defeat the “Joker” plot. When his girlfriend Brigitte (Kim Basinger) was at home, the “clown” suddenly attacked. Batman cleverly escaped the attack and accidentally discovered that the “clown” was the enemy who killed his parents.
The “Joker” kidnapped Batman’s girlfriend Brigitte this time, and agreed that the bats would fight to the death on the top of the church!
