Batman & Robin (1997)



Critic Consensus: Joel Schumacher's tongue-in-cheek attitude hits an unbearable limit in Batman & Robin resulting in a frantic and mindless movie that's too jokey to care much for.

Critic Reviews for Batman & Robin

All Critics (85) | Top Critics (28)

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.

Wall Street Journal
Top Critic

The movie has its entertaining flashes, but there's too much bat-jive and bat-hokum.

Chicago Tribune
Top Critic

In terms of new twists or narrative momentum. Poison Ivy, the sinuous villainess, is the only relief from the onslaught of spoofy humor, special effects and meaningless comic book mayhem.

[A] loud, long and pointless spectacle.

Philadelphia Inquirer

Batman & Robin won't kill the popular series, but it ought to slow it down a tad.

There's plenty to look at but nothing to feel.

Audience Reviews for Batman & Robin

Schumacher goes beyond ridiculous in this disaster, his actors looking like flamboyant drag queens in a colorful carnival parade uttering some of the worst lines ever written. Everything is so embarrassingly bad and over-the-top that I could only feel ashamed for everyone involved.

Carlos Magalh„es

Super Reviewer

Well, at least Chris O'Donnell's nice to look at -- but that's about it for the "positives". The rest is a boring mess.

Christian C

Super Reviewer

A visual treat, but an overall trick. Batman & Robin fails to deliver with senseless innuendos as well as uninspiring performances from most of its cast. 1/5
