So this Batman follows Bruce Wayne (Val Kilmer) as he battles Two-face played by Tommy Lee Jones and the riddler as played by Jim Carrey. Two-face challenges Batman from the opening scene and throughout the circus where batman meets soon to be Robin. As Robin loses his family to a stunt pulled by Two-face and his goons. Batman asks Robin to stick around and fix a rare bike in exchange he can have it. Bruce begins to have flash backs of his past and the time he lost his parents. The beautiful Chase Meridian (Nicole Kidman) is a psychologist to Bruce and Batman. The banter between Chase and Batman is really what works in this movie.
The low points aren’t too low. Although, at times the movie does slow down a bit and does have some cheese lines from a lot of the cast. It’s definitely better than Batman and Robin and more colorful than Batman and Batman Returns.
Yes we have to ask the questions… Will Batman beat Two-face and The Riddler? Will Robin become Batman? Will Batman and Chase Hook up? and yes will movies ever stop using the unidentifiable person crossing the street with a baby carriage to lure in the hero?
0 snores out of 0 snores. Tommy Lee Jones, Nicole Kidman, and Jim Carrey really put great performances in.
