Product Description

Batman & Robin: Special Edition (Dbl DVD)

Amazon.ca

Following Val Kilmer's portrayal of the caped crusader in Batman Forever, the fourth Batman feature stars George Clooney under the pointy-eared cowl, with Chris O'Donnell returning as Robin the Boy Wonder. This time the dynamic duo is up against the nefarious Mr. Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger), who is bent on turning the world into an iceberg, and the slyly seductive but highly toxic Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman), who wants to eliminate all animal life and turn the Earth into a gigantic greenhouse. Alicia Silverstone lends a hand as Batgirl, and Elle McPherson plays the thankless role of Batman/Bruce Wayne's fiancée. A sensory assault of dazzling colors, senseless action, and lavish sets run amok, this Batman & Robin offers an overdose of eye candy, but it is strictly for devoted Bat-o-philes. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

As a Batman fan, I hate this movie even more intensely than a non-Batman fan could ever hate it. This movie has Mr. Freeze (Arnold Schwartzenegger) stealing diamonds and freezing people. Then he teams up with Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman) after she busts him out of Arkham. He thinks Batman killed his wife, so he decides to freeze the entire world, and Ivy will use some man-eating plants to populate the World once humankind is extinct (with the exception of her and Freeze). But what about Bane? And how exactly would Ivy survive? We don't know.
All four Batman movies have Bruce Wayne (George Clooney) awkwardly trying to explain to some love interest that he's a complicated and odd fellow - he is Batman afterall. In this movie, his girlfriend (Elle MacPherson) says she wants to marry him. Elle doesn't do anything except take up space in this movie, but she makes for some nice eye candy. Anyway, it's especially hilarious when Wayne's saying "There's things you don't know about me..." and so on, because it sounds like he's about to come out of the closet. Batman Returns mentions what became of Vicki Vale, and I like that. Schumacher never bothers to let us know what becomes of Catwoman, or Meridian, or if Wayne accepts Elle's wedding proposal. Characters are simply ignored and forgotten in Schumacher's movies. Batman Forever doesn't acknowledge the existence of Burton's movies. And this movie pretends that the first three movies don't exist (except for the clothes we see in an Arkham storage room).
There's leaden acting from everyone in this movie - except from Schwartzenegger and Thurman. They're actually quite entertaining (most of the time). And of course, the villains overshadow the completely uninteresting title character.

A freeze is coming.

Gotham is under siege, this time by not one but THREE supervillains: Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy and Bane.

The dynamic duo is called to the rescue despite the tension growing between them. Complicating things, Barbara Pennyworth, Alfred's niece, has come to Wayne manor to liberate her ailing uncle from a life of servitude. She also has a secret: a wild side that needs to be tamed.

When an all-out assault is declared on Gotham by Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy, the caped crusaders rise to the occasion, and this time they have a little help.

If you took the cheesy, camp-filled '60's Batman series and shot it with a huge budget, tons of effects and modern day equipment, Batman & Robin is what you'd get (and is what we got).

Clearly this was the film that killed the Batman franchise. It took eight years for Warner Brothers to recover from the disaster that was this movie.

The story--the "what it's about"--though farfetched, is bearable. It's the dialogue and stupid jokes that catapult this Bat flick a zillion miles into the campy canyon.

On the plus side, if you watch this movie solely for the bright colors, glitter and action, you'll have a good time.

If you're looking for substance, go back to the beginning, namely Burton's '89 triumph.

i will say off the bat,that in my opinion and many others apparently, this Batman marks a low point in the franchise.it is really one big spectacle on a very grand scale.lots of special effects.things blowing up and all that.this movie is really a parody of itself and the characters,which might be intentional.it basically plays like a two hour version of the 1960's camp classic TV series. i don't think too many people took this movie seriously.most of the dialogue consists of corny one liners,a few which are funny.George Clooney plays the dual role this time around,sort of.But as i read one reviewer say,he was really playing George Clooney.at least i thought so.there was not much depth to the character,but that's okay,because i didn't think there was much depth to the movie.there is however some eye candy in the form of Uma Thurman as the villainess Poison Ivy.she looked great and i loved her accent.Alicia Silverstone plays BatGirl,and she's a really cute chick.i didn't like Batman or Robin's costumes,especially Batman's. i thought they looked silly.not too mention non functional or practical.by the way,Chris O'Donnell is back as Robin.And Arnie gets top billing as the evil genius Mr.Freeze.you can probably guess what he does for much of the movie.i have to give the filmmakers credit.they really managed to make Arkham Asylum look completely non forboding.anyway,maybe this look was the whole point of the movie.most people didn't like it.many hated it.i didn't hate it.i thought it was entertaining,though it didn't leave much of an impact after watching.at least,not in my opinion anyway.but for sheer entertainment value,i give "Batman and Robin a 6/10

My my my, where to begin?
The 2 star average sums up this movie pretty well, and I even think that's too generous. For starters, this movie has far too many characters; 3 heroes and 3 villains. The problem is that in a 2 hour movie, you simply can't develop all of these characters. Most of them are thrown to the side for a while, then come back, disappear, and then everything converges at the end, resonant of a train wreck.
I'm actually a fan of Schwarzenegger, not for his acting, but for his campy delivery of lines and pure chessiness factor. But why in the name of all that is holy was he cast as Mr.Freeze? This simply boggles the mind. Did the producers ever watch the animated series? Ever read the comic books? I doubt it, for they would have seen that Arnold resembles the villain about as much as Roseanne resembles Britney Spears. Patrick Stewart was originally slated to play Mr.Freeze, but fortunately he had the wits to read the script and realize what a stinkfest this movie was shaping into. My Lord, can you imagine if he actually took this role? I reckon he'd have jumped from the highest roof soon after.
To this day, I believe that Bane was included in the script about a week before the movie was finished. He's represented as a brainless bodyguard. The real Bane (well, in the comics and cartoons) was actually one of Batman's cleverest enemies, who outsmarted the Dark Knight on multiple occassions. Oh who am I kidding, these are minor details right? Bane CRUSH!!! Bane DESTROY!!!
Ahem, anyway, if you're a huge Batman fan, please avoid this one like the plague. Even if you're someone who wants to complete their Batman collection, I still woudn't buy this! The Animated Series (1992-1995) is infinitely better, as are the movies (Mask of the Phantasm and SubZero). As for this movie, well, it's about as appealing as a fart on a crowded elevator.
Cheers!
