I enjoyed this very much when I was ten. I don't any more and it has dates terribly. The script has no understanding of the source material and ruins The Riddled and especially two face who comes across as Joke lite. Val Kilmer could make a decent Bruce Wayne but is underserved by this film. Is there a good way to make Robin work on film?
3,5 I don't understand why this film is so overlooked. It is a totally crazy film, a psychedelic and continously over-the-top (acting, cinematography, narrative) "object" that today would be impossibile to even think about. Honestly, I prefer the madness of Schumacher style than the impersonal and flat Nolan's Batman.
Caught somewhere between the Expressionist aesthetic of the Tim Burton films and the day-glo camp of Schumacher's own follow-up, "Batman Forever" is a nigh unwatchable Frankenstein's monster of a superhero film. Jim Carrey, oft-criticized for playing the Riddler as a Living Color sketch, is one of the few entertaining aspects of the movie considering he's the only one who appears to be having fun with the material.
A day-glo vomit of grotesque vision from hack director Schumacher. Almost worthless addition to the 90's Batman franchise saved only by Tommy Lee Jones take on Two-Face and a very watchable wardrobe modelled by Nicole Kidman and Drew Barrymore. Kilmer pretty awful in title role and less said about O'Donnell the better. Kidman no more believable here as a pyschologist than she was as a doctor in Days of Thunder.
