Batman Forever


(out of 5)

Gone are the good old days of Tim Burton’s menacingly creepy Gotham City. Director Joel Schumacher has turned the Caped Crusader’s hometown into a bloated colour parade, beautifully designed but also a bit ridiculous. This time, Batman ( filling in for Michael Keaton) must tackle two new villains, the Riddler (a hilariously loony ) and Two-Face (), while also fending off the attention of a beautiful doctor () and making the acquaintance of his new friend Robin (). It could be a lot more fun if it weren’t so long and overdone, but it does have its moments, and Stephen Goldblatt’s cinematography is gorgeous.
