Fun, that's the whole point
Batman Forever lacks the outright depressing, darkened mood of the first
two. Good! After Batman Returns I didn't know how much more decadent they
could get, with so much lack of lighting I was having a hard time just
WATCHING the movies.
As far as Batman himself I am happy to say that Val Kilmer is NOT Michael
Keaton or Adam West. They were ok for the job but were just too wooden and
monolithic for their actions. With Kilmer we get a much more fluid Batman
who doesn't seem to lag around like Keaton's did. Speed is what he does
best...and he does it!
The supporting protagonists do the meager, ok job they need to keep this
film acceptable. It is nice to see Dick Grayson ditch that sickeningly
awful "Robin" outfit a la 1966 and get a REAL superhero
THE VILLAINS! No Batman movie would be complete without them! Tommy Lee
Jones is ok as Two-Face and his presence holds on until Jim Carrey--master
of dancing around and acting like the modern, much cooler Jerry
Lewis--slides in as the Riddler. Like Nicholson in the first, Carrey holds
our attention with his shenanigans (even if they annoy us) and make the
movie a bit more fun.
That's the whole point. When we go to a Batman movie, we aren't expecting
"The Godfather" or "Citizen Kane". We want to be entertained to the MAX and
this movie does just that with a hint of glitz and a lot more style than
Batman 2 did. Remember how it took over half an hour for us to get around
to observing Keaton as Bruce Wayne in that one? I think these two are tied
By all means avoid Batman & Robin! You will be utterly disappointed with
George "ER" Clooney, Arnold "Jingle all the Way" Scwarzenegger, Uma "the
Avengers" Thurman, and everything else in that piece of

Great movie. Awesome! .
Awful. Offensively bad. Don't waste your time.
Don't be fooled by the other reviews...this is one awful movie. The
only thing worse than the horrible direction, stupid looking neon
lights, and wooden performances by Val Kilmer & Nicole Kidman was the
exaggerated performance and actions of Jim Carrey. Having not seen this
since it was in the theater, I was surprised at how awful it
was cartoonish, unbelievable, horrible acting, and a nonexistent plot.
It was visually and mentally offensive. In many places, with all of the
neon lights and bad face paint, it felt like a high school production
gone horribly awry.
Quite possibly the only redeeming factor of this movie is Tommy Lee
Jones, who really does make for a great villain. Funny everyone
mentions Carrey, I believe he was completely outdone by Jones. Don't
see this movie. At least "Batman & Robin" hit a plateau of bad that it
