Batman & Robin

Critics 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.

Movie Info

This superhero adventure finds Batman (George Clooney) and his partner, Robin (Chris O'Donnell), attempting to the foil the sinister schemes of a deranged set of new villains, most notably the melancholy Mr. Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger), who wants to make Gotham into an arctic region, and the sultry Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman), a plant-loving femme fatale. As the Dynamic Duo contends with these bad guys, a third hero, Batgirl (Alicia Silverstone), joins the ranks of the city's crime-fighters.

    Batman Credit Card, Batsuit nipples, 12000 Mr. Freeze one-liners about the cold, an absolutely God awful script, and a mindless brutish Bane all blend together to create this supreme abortion of cinema. Terrible movie that was overcrowded by a forced story, too may villains, too many heroes and absolutely terrible performances by Chris O'Donnell and Alicia Silverstone. Only redeeming factor of this film was that it scrapped the entire franchise and made way for Christopher Nolan.

    Throwing Batgirl and two villains sillier than Caesar Romero's Joker into the mix-up, the camptastic Batman & Robin finishes off a once-invigorating franchise brought to its knees by director Joel Schumacher's tonal about-face called Batman Forever. Things were going well. The Dark Knight was dark, edgy, and a pop culture phenomenon again with 1989's Batman and its 1992 sequel. Then, Joel Schumacher comes aboard the series with 1995's Batman Forever and turns the proceedings into a light romp that's not unlike a Bollywood musical. Color pops everywhere, over-acting rues the day, and all involved look ready to break into jazz-hands and a two-step. Batman & Robin just ratchets up this unfortunate silly streak to the Nth degree. Of course, this is the former set designer who would later take Phone Booth - based on a gangbusters Hitchcock-inspired screenplay that works so great as a thriller on paper because it keeps things claustrophobic and paranoid - and opens the film with a shot from outer space that telescopes in on earth to show audiences how busy, active, and sprawling our world is. He just doesn't get it, always throwing out the Batmite with the bathwater. In this embarrassingly bad PG-13-rated sequel, Batman (Clooney) and Robin (O'Donnell) try to keep their relationship together even as they must stop Mr. Freeze (Schwarzenegger) and Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman) from freezing Gotham City. The less said about this franchise killer the better. Nicholson gained top billing over Keaton in Batman because he starred in Chinatown, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, The Shining, and Terms of Endearment which proves both his box office clout and acting chops. Schwarzenegger rates the marquee spot over Clooney because the inmates are running the Arkham Asylum at this point. The villains take precedence over the heroes and over-the-top sets and costumes take precedence over the story. Batman & Robin is pretty much a live-action staging of The Super Friends. Oh, and the Dark Knight's body armor sports Bat Nipples. Bottom line: Holy Batsh*t

    Batman & Robin is not only one of the worst comic book films but it is also one of the worst films of all time. Batman & Robin is campy, silly and over the top which it was intended. If you view this film as a comedy then it is hilarious. But if you view this film seriously you will be extremely let down.

    Batman & Robin is fun in exactly one way: Fun to laugh at. It's terrible, God is it terrible, but it's terrible in that right kind of way. Doesn't stop it from being terrible, but does make it worth watching. Joel Schumacher delivers us the final nail in the lid of Batman's coffin with none other than George Clooney in the guise of the Caped Crusader, probably the worst on screen Batman we'll ever see. Clooney was actually a pretty inspired choice if you're thinking solely about the billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne, but ask any Batfan and they'll tell you: the character's true identity is Batman, Bruce Wayne is just a mask he wears. Finally, this isn't a real complaint but something that I'm going to address anyway: The Batman movie with Batman and Robin is called Batman Forever, but the one with Batman, Robin and Batgirl is called just Batman & Robin? Go figure.
