another great batman movie, just lie the rest of the batman movies it leave's you wanting more
More entertaining than Batman Returns, but starting to lose any sense of realism that the first 2 films had, due to a new director who thinks the excuse of "Oh, but it's just a comic book movie" can let him get away with more absurdities and cheesier dialogue.
If you can get past the first half hour, then the film seems to settle down a bit and get more into the internal, darker sides of Batman, like we saw in the previous films. However, the attempt to inject some colour into this dark world via neon lights, black lights and lasers gets incredibly irksome after a while.
Val Kilmer's Batman is on par with Michael Keaton's, if not better, although he loses the Dark Knight's dorkier side, which I missed. Chris O'Donnell does the best he can with what he's been given as Robin. Jim Carrey is terrific as the Riddler, but just painful as Edward Nygma - he's so obviously and ridiculously disturbed, that you'd think Batman should have figured he was the Riddler straight away. Tommy Lee Jones is just terrible on all levels, making the complex Two-Face a hammed-up, boring, one-dimensional villain.
