Granted, this film is nowhere near as good as the previous two films, there are several bad and cheesy moments and its flaws are evident but its still entertaining enough to get it through its running time.
Val Kilmer is pretty good as Batman, Chris O Donnell does a good performance as Robin, but his character dosen't get much development for us to really care for him and he does some pretty stupid things at times which makes him harder to like, the same is true of Nicole Kidman's character
Two-face and The Riddler are not bad as villans, but they lack any development or real motives to be sinister, to be taken really seriously or for us to sympathize with them.
So, those few quibbles aside,not a great film especially when compared to Batman and Batman Returns, but still a fun ride. I probably wont be watching Batman and Robin.

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. ***

After the supremely dark and atmospheric films with Tim Burton at the helm, the studios decided to try and go for a younger audience and hired director Joel Schumacher to helm the third film. The tone is lighter from the outset, though with Burton's hand still on the tiller in the form of producer it manages to reign it in a bit and gives a film that is the right mix of dark and camp. Val Kilmer dons the cape for this outing, and he proves to be an able Wayne/Batman, here mentoring young Dick Grayson and trying to prevent him following the same dark path. He manages to bring across all the facets of the character very well. Tommy Lee Jones has gleeful manic fun as Two-Face, the ultimate split personality. He's a bit camp and schoolboyish at times, but it's all good fun. Jim Carrey almost steals the show as the Riddler, in a role that was just perfect for his brand of OTT mannerisms. With a host of great one liners and some good ideas, this is a decent film, and probably the most entertaining of the series. It's not as dark as the first two to be sure, but it does what it sets out to do effectively and delivers a couple of hours solid entertainment. I kind of prefer the darker tone of the first film, but that's just a matter of taste. 4 stars.

Divided amongst most Bat-Fans, this film was released in 1995, nearly 6 years after Tim Burtons original graced our screens. Many are quick to relegate this film to the "Campy, Crappy Schumacher Era", but upon closer inspection the film very nearly could have had the right balance of Burtons dark, haunting vision and the 'pow! wam! splat!' summer blockbuster status of this films follow-up, "Batman & Robin". The reason I say this is because during the countdown to its release, the film was apparently re-edited by studio executives in order to gain a much more popcorn-friendly feel to the piece. This meant cutting out entire sequences that would explain plot and in certain cases make the film alot daker. Thats why this release is so refreshing as we get to see a handful of material that was taken out nearly 10 years ago. Unfortunately, we have no directors cut, so it appears unlikely we will ever see the film in its original (glory?).. Also included on this release are several documentaries detailing production, and a Joel Schumacher commentary, which I'm sure many will agree is probably worth the price tag alone for both this film and "Batman and Robin", if only to play a game of 'how many times schumacher says "i'm sorry" in a commentary'..
