Batman and Robin (1997) Film Review

And finally, Batman and Robin… what a stinker. I’m a big fan of George Clooney, but he was too charming and not tortured enough as Batman for me. Arnold Schwartzenegger was terrible as Mr Freeze, in fact both he and Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy seemed to be just punching out the one-liners and it didn’t work. This felt like it was probably down the director’s choices, perhaps just trying to capture the comic book element. It just felt really dumbed down. I wanted to enjoy both Chris O’Donnell and Alicia Silverstone more, but I didn’t. Avoid, for sure.
