Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

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

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bad movie, great DVD April 2, 2007
Format:DVD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Waste Of Time May 23, 2003
Format:DVD
Even now to this day, I still can't seem to figure out how Schumacher managed to go from being able to pull it off well with "Batman Forever" and cause the movie series to tumble down to the ground with the abysmal follow-up movie entitled "Batman & Robin". That's probably what the third Batman movie should've been called. It's even funnier that they couldn't muster up a movie title more creative than "Batman & Robin". Now come on! Robin was in the third movie in the series. Even when brushing aside the uncreative movie title, "Batman & Robin" absolutely fails on almost all fronts, turning the dark and foreboding franchise from a chilling series into a laughable joke that's almost on par with a bad remake of the campy 60s series but more like bathtub TV material. It's really sad to see one of the darkest and most angst-ridden comic book characters become the laughing stock of the decade or possibly the century.
The main villains this time are the nefarious Mr. Freeze and the sultry villainess Pamela Isley also knows a Poison Ivy. George Clooney fills Batman shoes after the dark knight was played by Michael Keaton and Val Kilmer. Unfortunately, while I personally am not trying to criticize Clooney, he (at least at the time) was completely unfit for playing the mysterious dark knight crime-fighting hero. Chris O'Donnell's role as Robin was almost as ill-fated, faring much worse than in "Batman Forever". Where as in the previous movie, Robin at least showed reason to be angry and sometimes even snotty with the loss of much of his family, in "Batman & Robin", Robin comes off as just a spoiled brat with little or no common sense. Batgirl in this movie was absolutely despicable and wretched, looking more like something that I would've seen from a bondage video film.

This isn't just the worst Batman movie, it is a pile of garbage on its own. The characters are stupid. Cliches are visible as far as the eye can see. $2 wasted!
