After Tim Burton and Michael Keaton's departure from the series, Joel Schumacher took over and turned the Batman franchise into a kid-friendly campy style series. While its definately not as bad as the fourth film Batman and Robin, there is plenty to enjoy here thanks to the ensemble cast.

Val Kilmer is decent as both Bruce Wayne and Batman. Jim Carrey is suitably cast as Riddler who is the scene stealer. Nicole Kidman is extremely beautiful as Chase Meredian, Batman and Bruce's love interest. Chris O' Donnell is ideal as Robin. The only disappointment is Tommy Lee Jones as Two-face. He plays Two-face like a Joker Clone and was the only bad performance in an otherwise decent and enjoyable third entry.

I prefer Batman when he's fighting crime as opposed to comic buffoons, but the first of Joel Schumacher's two films in this series is acceptable entertainment. Kids will probably love it and, call me childish, but I've always been tickled by Jim Carrey's Riddler. He's goofy and looks like a transvestite showgirl during the film's climax, but his verbal mannerisms are amusing. I still get a laugh from an early scene where he pushes his boss through a window, into rushing waters beneath, and shouts "surf's up, big kahuna!" Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face is less impressive. He seems too aware that he's in a kid's film, so his acting's contrived and a wee bit condescending, like Schwarzenegger's and Stallone's when they do family pictures.
Val Kilmer is an adequate Batman. Unlike his successor George Clooney (and the immortal Adam West) he bothers to emote despite the daft material. He doesn't do as well in the role as Michael Keaton and Christian Bale, but then how could he? They had better scripts. Chris O'Donnell is utterly forgettable as Robin. I would blame that on the screenplay, but he's hardly a charismatic actor. He's very handsome though, which I guess is why he was hired. There's plenty of eye candy for adults. Nicole Kidman wears silky night clothes and looks like a pulp heroine. Schumacher slips in some leery shots of a sweating, shirtless Kilmer, and there's the infamous butt close-up when Batman and Robin are getting their suits on.
The action scenes can be exciting and I liked the film's visual look. It reminds me a bit of the live-action Flintstones movie in the way it constructs a colourful cartoon world.
All in all, Batman Forever isn't a great movie about my favourite superhero, but if you watch it as harmless fun it can be entertaining.

Well what can I say that hasn't been said already about this film. Okay,. seeing as Tim Burton is no longer directing the franchise (howevdr he produced this), it's not a bad effort and not the crap film. That crap film was the next one to follow: Batman and Robin.

Anyway this is where the franchise started going downhill though because Warner Bros wanted to make it appeal to younger children, they introduced some overly-campy humour. Most of it comes from the films two lead villains, Two-Face and the Riddler. Two-Face is meant to be a tragic and confused character with multiple personalities whereas the Riddler is meant to be an reclusive evil eccentric. Here they behave like naughty little schoolboys. The plotline is ok but a little cheesy.

The plot involves Batman/Bruce Wayne (Kilmer) struggle with his identities and seeking therapy from beautiful Dr Chase Meridian (Kidman)

As this occurs, three members of a family of acrobats are murdered by the newly escaped Two-Face, leaving their youngest son Dick Grayson (O' Donnell, who isn't too bad actually) to survive. As a result Bruce takes Dick in and Dick soon finds out who Bruce is. Whilst this is occurring, one of Bruce Waynes disgruntled ex-employees Edward Nygma is creating a successful bussiness of his own and has invented an invention that makes t.v. programmes become reality for the viewers whilst secretly sucking out bits about peoples private lives from their minds whilst they are in their hypnotic trance.

The acting is mixed. Val Kilmer makes a good Bruce Wayne but isn't too scary as Batman. Nicole Kidman is rather wooden. Chris O'Donnell is okay as the grieving and vengeful Dick Grayson. Jim Carrey is his usual manic self and Tommy Lee Jones is way too over the top as Two Face.

It's okay but not great. Still it could've been worse as we've all learned. ***

Tim Burton only had a producer credit on this third instalment in the original Batman franchise; new director Joel Schumacher took over directing duties after WB felt the series had become too dark following Batman Returns.

The tone is lighter in Batman Forever and this was the first one in the series to truly look like a comic book come to life. Gotham is bathed in neon lights and gives the film a "pulpy" 90's feel compared to the gloomy design of Burton's movies.

The story sees Batman still defending Gotham, this time against scarred former District Attorney, Harvey Dent, now known as "Two-Face", an off-the-rails villain who decides his and the fate of others by the flip of a coin. Psychiatrist Dr Chase Meridian has an interest in the minds of Gotham's criminals, but has a bigger interest in Batman himself. And Wayne Enterprises worker Edward Nygma is so obsessed with Bruce Wayne that when Wayne declines giving funding to his wacky invention (beaming television into viewer's brains by taking control of their brainwaves), he commits murder and morphs into the even more deranged "Riddler."

The film also sees the addition of Dick Grayson, who loses his family in a tragedy at the Gotham City Circus. Grayson (former member of the "Flying Graysons" acrobatic team) is taken in by Bruce Wayne and Alfred but is tormented by the loss of his family and blames himself for their deaths.

Batman Forever is more action-packed than the previous instalments and is much more child-friendly. However, there are darker elements.
