Tulsa World

Nothing here approximates a consistent or engrossing story. Instead, we're left with clumsily filmed action sequences that are full of sound and fury, but signify nothing.

Burton's Batman was capable of snapping criminal spine -- Schumacher's is a sissy lib who believes in redemption, if not the possibility of rehabilitation.

Wonderful to look at, and has nothing authentic at its core.

Pointless, plodding plotting; asinine action; clueless, comatose characterization; and dumb dialogue.

Of all modern Batmans, George Clooney bears the closest physical resemblance to the comic-book hero, but there isn't much to say about his performance because there isn't much performance to discuss.

Schumacher piles on the action, but this is still the least satisfying entry in the series.

Warner Brothers owns the Batman character; you would think they would have a vested interest in doing a good job of the films, but the films themselves prove that they don't -- and this film provides the most numbing, sickening, inane proof of all.

I'm not going to beat around the bush here. This is a bad movie.

The villains, Arnold Schwarzenegger and especially Uma Thurman in this instance, remain the highlights here, as the rest of the gargantuan production lacks the dash and excitement that would have given the franchise a boost in its eighth year.

A film that might be entertaining to look at if it were just a little more sparse and if the pace were cut down just a bit. But there were many scenes in which I had to ask myself what it was that I just saw.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Among the worst wide-release films of the 1990s, offering virtually nothing in the way of positive compensation other than an excellent chance to mock it with a cadre of like-minded, drunk friends.

This fourth modern Batman film features perhaps the worst screenplay -- or at least the worst dialogue -- ever written.

A mishmash of prolonged, confused action sequences, which are, admittedly, brilliantly staged but don't make much sense.
