Batman & Robin
In the end it wasn't the joker, two face, nor the penguin that killed batman.....it was joel schumacher
Out of all the films I've seen, this one just plain sucks. I wish I could say something positive out of this film other than saying that this is probably the only film out of the series thus far (except for Batman Begins) that shows a deep connection between Alfred and Bruce Wayne. Also, how it seems that George Clooney will most likely be unfairly blamed for all of this film's follies. Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to say he did a great job at being Batman but with lines like, "Batcredit card, I never leave the cave without one", would make any actor look stupid playing Batman. The film is based off the classic DC characters, Batman (George Clooney) and Robin (Chris O'Donnel), where they have been together for a while and have gotten on each other's nerves. Throw in Batgirl and Mr. Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenneger) with him trying to intimidate us with his "Terminator attitude" trying to cure his wife, but I'm not too scary to sing songs like, "I'm Mr. White Christmas." Also, lets not forget Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman) with her cliche lines, "every Poison Ivy action figure comes equipped with him..", and her steroid junky character Bane. And oh yes, Bruce manages to have a new fiance too. You might wonder how they could get this all into one film, well they don't. What you get is a rushed cliched script with mediocrity written all over it. Special effects and set designs obviously look like they were shot in a studio with no realism. Overall, avoid this film at all costs.
