Following Val Kilmer's portrayal of the caped crusader in Batman Forever, the fourth Batman feature stars George Clooney under the pointy-eared cowl, with Chris O'Donnell returning as Robin the Boy Wonder. This time the dynamic duo is up against the nefarious Mr. Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger), who is bent on turning the world into an iceberg, and the slyly seductive but highly toxic Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman), who wants to eliminate all animal life and turn the Earth into a gigantic greenhouse. Alicia Silverstone lends a hand as Batgirl, and Elle McPherson plays the thankless role of Batman/Bruce Wayne's fiancée. A sensory assault of dazzling colors, senseless action, and lavish sets run amok, this Batman & Robin offers an overdose of eye candy, but it is strictly for devoted Bat-o-philes. --Jeff Shannon

When Bob Kane introduced Batman to the world in 1939, he introduced a dark, brooding vigilante who was just as likely to kill his prey as arrest them. This Dark Knight would last untill the introduction of Robin...
In 1940.
That's right, Batman's "dark" period lasted about eleven issues, something "purists" seem to forget. Kane and Finger may have created a dark brooding figure, but they sure seem to have enjoyed the more lighthearted Caped Crusader a lot more, seeing that this version of The Dynamic Duo would last through to the 1970's. Even then, when the wonderful Denny O'Neil took the series in a more mature, detective oriented direction, it wouldn't be untill Miller's Dark Knight Returns that the "dark" Batman would be viewed by fans as the "true" Batman.
But the simple fact is, there is no "true" Batman. Batman has been interpreted many different ways over the years, each with their own pros and cons. Adam West's Batman is not The Dark Knight's Batman is not The Lego Movie's Batman, yet they are all undeniably Batman. And it must be said that Batman in the comics has spent far more time with bigger than life villans and cheesy puns and one liners than without. This movie doesn't spit on the image of Batman as so many would have you believe, it embraces one of the many views of the Batman, one perhaps sadly neglected in our cynical and jaded times.
Frankly, I find the Batman of this and "Forever" to be closest to the source material. Tim Burton's Batman was fun, but also a psyco killer. Nolan's Batman tries too hard to be "realistic", something a man in a bat suit can never fully achieve. Not to mention the fact that the timeline of "Rises" seems to say Bruce was Batman maybe a year and a half total. This I find less forgivable than a Bat-Credit card.

How to review one of the five worst movies ever made?

I could say that Batman and Robin plays less like a superhero movie and more like an episode of Queer Eye for the Hero Guy; but that doesn't quite capture the true level of putrid that this film reaches.

I could say that Alicia Silverstone (playing Batgirl, if you can believe it) and spandex pants are not friends; but that might seem a little too snarky.

I could say that Joel Schumacher's "direction" is so non-existent and Akiva Goidsman "writing" so abysmal that the entire film never even manages to reach the quality of the average high school talent show; but that doesn't give enough credit to talent shows.

I could point out that all the flashing neon that assaults the viewers during nearly every scene (and from nearly every Bat device that the "stealthy" Dark Knight uses) causes severe eye strain before the movie is half way through; but most viewers lost their vision when their eyes were poked out by the huge, hard nipples on the Batsuit, and the rest of the viewers either turned it off or committed suicide before the halfway mark anyway.

I could say that Arnold Schwarzenegger, George Clooney, Chris O'Donnell, Uma Thurman, and Alicia Silverstone all turn in the worst performances of their entire careers (and with Silverstone that's really saying something); but that might be too obvious since none of them ever mentions this film at all, even when asked about it.

But instead of saying all that I think I can sum it up best like this:

Not since "Manos: The Hands of Fate" (the worst film ever made) have I ever actually felt myself aging second by second while watching a movie until I watched Batman and Robin.

I have no doubt that this movie plays on a continuous loop in hell.

I'm just not going to reiterate what countless others have said about this movie. Simply said, this is the movie that singlehandedly ran the "Batman" franchise off the tracks and for a long time was considered the end of the franchise, until Christopher Nolan boldly resurrected the franchise with the magnificent "Batman Begins" in June 2005.

There's just so many things about it it would probably take me pages to list them all. The screenplay, written by Akiva Goldsman (who has proven himself to be a capable screenwriter in other movies), is just the primary offender. The screenplay is also atrocious in dialogue, mostly relegated for the badly-miscast Arnold Schwartzenegger as Mr. Freeze and it beats us over the head with its absurd plot twists and sickening melodrama. Superhero movies are definitely not Akiva Goldsman's strongest suit. The movie is also much gaudier and colorful, to the point where it seems more like a three-ring circus act rather than a proper Batman movie. Director Joel Schumacher (who also has some good films under his belt, such as "The Client" and "Tiger Land") just phones it in and doesn't aim for any sort of restraint or subtlety.

The good points? well, most of the actors escape unscathed, although this is one film they'll prefer to forget on their resumes. George Clooney does fine, just playing himself wearing the Batman costume and acting like a faux Cary Grant when he's out of the suit. Chris O'Donnell is fine and so is Alicia Silverstone (even though the script absurdly rewrites her origin as Alfred's niece and not as Commissioner Gordon's daughter in the comics), but Arnold Schwartznegger is just badly miscast. Every time he's on screen, I just grind my teeth in agony over the bad one-liners the script gives him.
