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. ***

WARNING!! Review May contain spoilers...

Fed up of being told to lighten the mood after the brilliantly Gothic double whammy of Batman and Batman Returns, Tim Burton, the director of both decieded to let someone else have a go, instead staying as a producer only. Enter new director Joel Schumacher, tasked with making Batman lighter again, so as to appeal to chrildren. In that respect, Batman Forever doesen't disapoint.

Along with Burton went former leading man Michael Keaton, who also didn't like the direction the film was taking. meaning that a new Dark Knight was found in the younger Val Kilmer portrays Bruce Wayne/Batman. Rather than play the role in the brooding way Keaton did, Kilmer still adds a melancholic tinge to the role and in truth plays the role quite well, despite not being as good as his predecessor. Tommy Lee Jones, replacing Billy Dee Williams from 1989's Batman, plays Harvey Dent/Two Face, one of the main villains, who has been horribly scarred on one half of his face, and thus develops a split personality. Unfortaunately, he plays the role way too camp, and so the character is unbearable throughout. Comedian Jim Carey plays a role that was tailor made for him, as he portrays the villainous Riddler, who steals every scene he is in. Batman is aided by his equally iconic sidekick Robin for the first time in the franchise, played well by Chris O'Donnell. Nicole Kidman echoes Kim Basinger in the first film, again being a tad annoying as psychiatrist love interest Dr. Chase Meridian. Again sticking in there almost unnoticed are the unsung heroes of the franchise, Michael Gough, Wayne's trusty butler Alfred, and Pat Hingle as Comissioner Gordon.

Riddle me this, riddle me that. What do I think of Val Kilmer's turn as the big black bat? Pretty good, actually, as is the 1995 movie Batman Forever as a whole. It's the third movie after Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992). I'm not counting the 1966 offering starring Adam West. No way! Too many men in tights.

Batman Forever sees the "Caped Crusader" (Kilmer) fighting more crime in Gotham City. This time he faces off with the always-caught-in-two-minds lunatic, Two-Face (Tommy Lee Jones), and The Riddler (Jim Carrey), a guy obsessed with riddles and outperforming Bruce Wayne in the business tycoon stakes. Also featuring in the character line up is Robin (Chris O'Donnell), Dr.Chase Meridian (Nicole Kidman), and Bruce Wayne's ever faithful butler, Alfred (Michael Gough).

It's a pretty impressive line up of actors, and one that is well cast. Jones and Carrey make a great duo as Two-Face and Riddler respectively, and are undeniable proof that not only can villains be evil, they can also be funny. The way they act and terrorize innocent civilians will actually leave you with a smile on your face, and they have a few decent one-liners as well. The best of which is when Batman breaks in through the glass ceiling to stop Two-Face's henchmen stealing cash and jewellery from a party hosted by Edward Nygma, Riddler's true identity. Edward says to Two-Face "Your entrance was good. His was better."

But it's not just the funny scenes that make Batman Forever great. There are many darker scenes that will impress you too. Val Kilmer does a very good job portraying Bruce Wayne/Batman.
