"'You're not sending ME to the COOLER!' Oh, but I think I am."
SUCKS. Sucks ALL ass. This movie is an insult. Whoa. Deep breath. Ok, sorry. This was a terribly bad movie. Not only was it poor as an action movie, it was awful as a Batman movie.Summary: Alfred is sick. Alicia Silverstone shows up. Arnold is evil, and so is Uma Thurman. Chris O'Donnell is the sidekick. George Clooney is the hero. They fight and stuff, and Alicia helps out, and Alfred gets better.
Right off the bat: Too much stuff going on. I don't need two villains, a new sidekick, and another love interest. Why would I? Pick one goal for your story and go with that. Is this about the politics of the Batman-Robin partnership and how a newcomer upsets that? Or is it about Arnie's evil threat, or is it about an evil temptress? That's three separate movies that could have been made. There is no possible way to do any of those ideas justice if you attempt to cram them all into 2 hours. What comes out is a stupid, disjointed, superficial special effects flick.
The effects aren't bad. I was happily distracted by the computer-generated Gotham. Very over the top. Very unusual. The rest of the special effects I found yawning. Cause I don't care how cool they make a skydiving scene look. It's still a stupid skydiving scene.
And the comedy! God! Pissed me hell off. First of all, Arnie simple is NOT funny. But it's not even his fault he's so unfunny in this one, because the lines are just RETARDED. Insultingly so.As an action movie, this sucks. Because of the multiple villains thing. Dammit, pick one. Stupid people. Honestly. So I give it 1 spork, because no matter how you evaluate this, it falls short. Very short.
