Batman & Robin (1997)

Batman_&_Robin_-_Poster.png

Batman and Robin try to keep their relationship together even as they must stop Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy from freezing Gotham City. (IMDb)
So, opening scene, Batman & Robin engage the ice skates built into their suits and start playing hockey with a diamond puck against a blue-faced Arnold and his robot army and I’m thinking, “This is almost ridiculous enough to be good.” Alas, it was not to be: cheesiness aside, there’s too much going on in the script (for the second time Schumacher, two villains is too many), the action scenes are awkwardly staged (very stage-y), and the performances are poor (Thurman’s overacting in particular).
5/10 (Poor)

  1. Yes, I do agree with you. Still, I cannot help but have warm feelings towards this film. I remember I re-watched it several times in the early 2000s hoping it will improve – it never did but it is a nice film to have a laugh with. A parody on Batman and his gang if nothing else.
