The Fusion of Science Fiction and Film Noir by Paul Meehan
The villains of the piece are typically noir homicidal sadists, but the portrayal of mob boss Boddicker by the bald, bespectacled Kurtwood Smith is an inspired bit of casting against type, as Smith's features seem more appropriate for those of an accountant rather than a master criminal.

The film starred the diminutive Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne/Batman, ...
