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.

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

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.

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

Thurman aside, B&R is about what you've come to expect: loud, frenzied, brawling and fixated on sleek, shiny, high-tech vehicles and gadgetry.

Batman & Robin is less a movie than a razzle-dazzle video game.

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

Clooney manages to keep even these scenes afloat with consistent good humor and unforced charm.

The fourth installment of the lucrative Batman series is the weakest yet, but anyone not expecting that after 1995's Batman Forever will probably be too dazed by all the bright lights in the theater lobby to notice anyway.

Fourth time's not the charm in this rambling sequel, which gets off to a roaring start, then quite literally crashes.

A sniggering, exhausting, overproduced extravaganza that has virtually all of the humanity pounded out of it in the name of an endless parade of stunt sequences.

Batman & Robin is as bad as anything on screen this year.

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

Predictably dismal pop-operatic guff.

Keaton, Kilmer and Clooney. Sounds like a law firm. Look for a fourth partner soon.

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.

Noisy, campy, overproduced, it's abdicated all solemnity in pursuit of a boom-kaboom videogame esthetic.

Bring earplugs to Batman & Robin. A pair of noseplugs wouldn't hurt, either.

I've seen colonic X-rays more visually appealing than what Schumacher throws up on the screen.
