Courage now, truth always...
The Dark Knight of Gotham City confronts a dastardly duo: Two-Face and the Riddler. Formerly District Attorney Harvey Dent, Two-Face believes Batman caused the courtroom accident which left him disfigured on one side. And Edward Nygma, computer-genius and former employee of millionaire Bruce Wayne, is out to get the philanthropist; as The Riddler. Former circus acrobat Dick Grayson, his family killed by Two-Face, becomes Wayne's ward and Batman's new partner Robin.
Looks like I'm in the minority when it comes to this film. I actually really enjoyed Batman Forever. Sure it's over the top, silly, and has no real substance. But I had a surprisingly good time watching it. I enjoyed the heck out of Jim Carrey as The Riddler and Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face; even though they were both cheesy. However, I can totally understand why someone would not like this film.
"Does anyone else feel like a fried egg?"
sublimely tacky, but there's very little here that doesn't have precedent in Burton's installments, and it's inarguably just as technically polished, as if the old TV show had, like, $18,000 papier-mâché rocks and state-of-the-art miniature work. i'm no longer able to see this as intrinsically awful, even if i don't particularly care for Schumacher's approach (also i think a lot of the supposedly legendary awfulness is some ugly "no homo" bullshit).
if they ever put Schwarzenegger in something like this, i might never stop laughing.
Riddle me this: How can such a formidable movie like Batman Returns be followed by such a piece of overacted crap? Whilst I recognize that Joel Schumacher's Batman films are low hanging fruit when it comes to mockery, I must say Batman Forever fully deserves it. Let's break down its inherent shittiness by spotlighting the awfully characterized parade of over-the-top idiots Schumacher tortures the audience with in order to highlight what I hated most about this film (Hint: Its the characters, I'm not the fucking Riddler)
*Speaking of him, let's start with the aforementioned Riddler (sigh). Granted the Riddler is a problematic character. His shtick of leaving hints in form of riddles is…
Much like everyone has their own James Bond movie, the one they fondly remember from childhood, most people roughly 30 & under doubtless have their own Batman movie and, without question, Batman Forever was mine. After at least a decade since last watching this, I was immediately transported back to the 13 year old callow youth mesmerised in the cinema as Elliot Goldenthal's rousing Bat-theme blasted in as the names of Val Kilmer, Tommy Lee Jones et al raced at us across the screen in typically overblown theatrical fashion, in many ways setting the tone for everything that follows. I loved Batman Forever when I was 13. Do I love it now? Maybe a little. Do I think Joel Schumacher made…
Those neon John Carpenter sets (I paused for a while just to dig that establishing shot of the circus exterior), the miniature action sequences so fitting to the source material (Robin making a crash entrance into the bat cave, cleaning his clothes), the gliding camera movements, Tommy Lee Jones and Jim Carrey as weird and as wonderful as they've ever been. This is still the best superhero movie by far.
Nicole Kidman looks even better in HD.
Så kom starten på nedgangen, Tim Burton er ude som instruktør og Michael Keaton er ude som Batman. Ind kommer i stedet Joel Schumacher i instruktørstolen og Val Kilmer i Batman-dragten, og lige pludselig er det hele ikke helt som det plejer.
Det er tydeligt at se at Joel Schumacher prøver alt for hårdt på at bygge videre på Tim Burtons skabte verden, og filmens stil ender med at føles lidt som et copy/paste-projekt. Desuden giver Val Kilmer intet nyt til rollen som Batman, og spiller karakteren højst upersonligt. Han er ikke den eneste der spiller dårligt, både Tommy Lee Jones og Jim Carrey, der her spiller filmens skurke, spiller ikke helt optimalt. Tommy prøver for hårdt, og skønt momenter…
Gotta love a silly Batfilm!
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

Por lo que he leído, se suele considerar a "Batman y Robin" como la peor de todas las películas no sólo de Schumacher, sino también de Batman. Sinceramente, creo que "Batman Forever" es igual de mala que su secuela: Nicole Kidman hace un papel meramente decorativo, Tommy Lee Jones y Jim Carrey están ridículos en sus roles respectivos de Dos Caras y Enigma, el Batmóvil, el traje y los gadgets son horrendos, la fotografía oscura ha dado paso a una más colorista, la trama es más simple e infantil, Chris O'Donnell, etc. Para mí, lo único que se salva es Val Kilmer como Bruce Wayne (no como Batman en sí, ojo).
Tras dos excelentes películas dirigidas por Tim Burton, cambiar…
Yes this is a bad film I know. But this is a guilty pleasure. Yes it's silly, has no real substance, is super over the top and cheesy. But I find this cinema really entertaining. Val Kimmer does the best Batman of them all. He has the deep authoritative voice and the broad chin. He is a terrible Bruce Wayne. Acts way too smart and where is the philanthropist playboy?
Jim Carey was silly, goofy, funny, intelligent, nerdy and psychotic all at once. He was a good Riddler! Tommy Boy did okay didn't really wow me. Was a little too loud and in your face. Not a fan of the purple face. Kidman was a bland character, really the only…
weak batman movie ,the bad guys are like something from the 1960s series with stupid one liners ,good flashbacks to batmans childhood thou
My favorite stupid movie. Bright neon, over-the-top performances and cartoonish action meets tight theming and excellent camerawork.
I FUCKING LOVE COLOURING
I'd love to see more of these stories. REALLY entertaining stuff. If anyone has some, send away.
Also, anything mentioning…
