    One of the saddest editions to a true comic legend

    Well, I am a very big movie researcher and giant fan of comic book movies. When I was a little kid, my opinion of Batman and Robin was "pretty cool" now, I'm afraid to watch it now. Like many smart movie goers have deducted, Joel Shumacher was one of the worst choices to give the franchise over. But I did a bit of research on the way Warner Bros does sequels. I really don't think it was Tim Burton's choice to choose a new director. According a DVD documentary from the special edition of Superman: The Movie, Warner Bros. made Dick Donner leave as director to Superman 2 and replaced him with a horrible choice named Richard Lester. That's probably what happened. And the dark edge Burton established left forever. This and Batman Forever were given a campy underground city feeling. A common misinforming notion most people make about Directors is that they do all the story decisions all the time. Sometimes is really the case for this. Most of the time, the scriptwriter does the dirty work. Personally, I believe the writer of the script never read a batman comic or heard any of the actual mythology about the characters, henceforth Batgirl was Alfred's niece and not Commissionar Gordon's daughter like it should've been. Personally, I thought that the person to play Mr. Frieze should've been Ian McKellen after I saw the work he did as Magneto and Gandalph. Mr. McKellen would have brought subtle actions, and a cold exterior. If your a true Comics fan and movie fan, watch the movie once, and decide for yourself what you think. The point to me telling my opinion is because this a review section, I'm not one to tell you what you should do. Oh, and one more thing, Michael Keaton turned down a second Batman sequel only because Tim Burton wasn't directing.

    This film is not an action film

    First of all, the first three batman movies were good. WHen i first saw this film, i loved it. THen i got older and saw how bad it was. This film is not an action film, it is just a comdedy like the 60's version. THe new batman film was good because it showed how Bruce Wayne became batman.

    bad movie

    bad movie
    Chris O'Donnell and Alicia Silverstone were the best part of this one. They played Robin and BatGirl quite well, Beyond that, this sucks

    Batman, Mr. Freeze, and Poison Ivy were horribly played and obsurdly shown. The costumes for all the characters were horribly done. George Clooney was the second worste Batman, behind only Adam West
    Arnold Schwarzenegger was neither the right appearance nor the personality for Freeze. This had Ivy ready to freeze the planet and kill all life. Ivy Poison Ivy is an Eco Terrorist, her action were motivated by protecting the planet.

    The story with Batman and Robin finding a new partner creating a trio to fight the crimal trio of Freeze, Ivy, and Bane. that was ok This had great potential, but didn't achieve it. This was a said chapter in the Batman series .

    The worst batman

    This is the worst batman. It was way to bubblely with Alica Silverstone (bad batgirl). And George Clooney is the worst Batman, he did not pull off batman's personality at all, batman is supposed to be dark and mystrious not light and carefree. And the movie had way too many puns and corny jokes, it seems like it targeted younger boys, and really doesn't appeal to older fans like the past batman movies, hello not only 10 year old boys watch batman (I am a proud 15 yr old female batman fan). And i just basicilly thought it was too commerialized and too much like any other movie (unlike the past ones). Although i didn't really like it, it was ok because it was a batman movie, and i like all batman things.I recommand you watch the other batman movies instead.

    ''This Movie Was SUB-ZERO''

    I am a big fan on batman movies but when it comes to ''Batman And Robin'' well, i would rather see the same batman cartoon over and over and over again. I think most of the cast was bad. Uma Thurman was good for Poisen Ivy. Arnold S. for Mr. Freeze, mmmmm I don't think so. He's more of the great muscle dude kind of guy to me. Alicia Silverstone, C'MON! You might as well get Y'vonne Craig! Chris Odonnel was alright for the role as Robin. Now George Clooney, don't even get me started. I like him as an actor really i do, but not as Batman. I think that Michael Gough did a goodjob staying with all four movies. He is the best Alfred you can get. I think the only people that were in all four movies were Alfred and Comissioner Gordon. And the last thing i'll comment on is........ WHY DIDN'T THEY HAVE BATGIRL AS COMISIONER GORDON'S DAUGHTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
