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…
Nicole Kidman looks even better in HD.

I liked this in 1995, so I'm giving it three stars. It's pretty atrocious to me now.
The 90's personified.
I feel like this is a movie you kinda need to see, I'm not sure that it's old makes a good excuse as to why it is so terrible.
The first two that Tim Burton directed, where sort of dark, in an almost depressing way, but they were still kinda decent, what bothers me about this film is that it is so ridiculous.
I wonder if the people behind it tried so hard that it ended up as nothing but a big joke.
Or if they intended on not taking the franchise seriously.
Or even themselves seriously.
It was very "comic book y", so in that way it was very honest to what it claims to be.
Jim Carrey plays…
Batman Forever is torn between the sensibilities of the darker Burton Batman films and the ridiculous Batman and Robin. It never really goes all the way in one direction or the other and ends up somewhere in the boring middle.
If I want a darker "comic book" take, I'll watch Batman 1989, if I want some off the wall weirdness I'll watch Batman Returns and if I want to be astounded with the amount of leeway that was afforded this franchise, I'll put Batman and Robin on.
So where does this leave Batman Forever?
Batman Forever isn't good enough to enjoy or bad enough to fascinate. Unless you have a hankering to be annoyed by Jim Carrey, I cannot think of one reason to watch this one.
