The styling for this movie was much different than the past 2 films, taking on more of a night club look than the rainy, Gothic city of Gotham in the past. Not to say I didn't like the change, but it was almost like looking into a whole new world.
The cast was talented and the writing was very good, in my opinion, it was just the little things that bothered me.
Jim as The Riddler was an amazing casting choice, and he played the part better than anybody else I could think of for it.
Great introduction to Dick Greyson as well, finally having given a decent background story to "The Boy Wonder" himself.
All in all, "it is what it is". This time period was a dark age for movies anyway and I'll take what I can get. I think it had much more RIGHT than wrong, but others will tend to disagree
After the first two Batman films directed by Tim Burton, something was lost. The first had Jack Nicholson and Jack Palance for the heavies and Michael Keaton and Kim Basinger weren't at all bad. You really became involved with Nicholson's characterization of the Joker due undeniably to his great screen presence. The second film, which many disliked for being dark and nihilistic was, I thought, quite funny thanks to Danny DeVito's great delivery. As long as you don't take anything seriously in it, it's a pretty good picture.
The problem with "Batman Forever" is that it is forever over the top. Too much color, too much noise, too much of Jim Carrey's teeth. Carrey's character becomes tiring in the first ten minutes and Tommy Lee Jones' face makeup appears to made out of candy. The character of Robin (Chris O'Donnell) is introduced who, after an heroic feat of saving a circus tent full of spectators, becomes bratty and brooding. Alright, so he lost his entire family in the circus scene -- he seems to be able to forget it quickly enough. Val Kilmer, as Batman, keeps Robin from leaving by luring him into his mansion to show him his collection of motorcycles. This and the repeated references to being "partners" make somewhat pointed implications. One of Robin's lines later in the picture tries to get a laugh by making a reference to the old Batman television program: "Holy rusted metal, Batman!" But it falls flat as does most of the picture. The plot of the thing is contrived beyond belief and one's curiosity for the outcome fades by half-time. The city-scapes and buildings look more than ever like miniatures when seen in the unforgiving clarity of Blu-ray. Missing also is Danny Elfman's superb scoring, which brought a great deal to the first two films.
