Batman & Robin (1997)



Critic Consensus: Joel Schumacher's tongue-in-cheek attitude hits an unbearable limit in Batman & Robin resulting in a frantic and mindless movie that's too jokey to care much for.

Critic Reviews for Batman & Robin

All Critics (94) | Top Critics (33)

An amiable, almost farcical Batman episode, with George in Nespresso mode.

May 17, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Schumacher is like a bad stepdad who thinks we'll love him if he just feeds us candy all day. (Yes, Burton is the daddy in this metaphor - the manic-depressive, annoyingly emo daddy.)

June 18, 2017 | Full Review…

Of all modern Batmans, George Clooney bears the closest physical resemblance to the comic-book hero, but there isn't much to say about his performance because there isn't much performance to discuss.

June 18, 2014

The movie has its entertaining flashes, but there's too much bat-jive and bat-hokum.

June 18, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4

In terms of new twists or narrative momentum. Poison Ivy, the sinuous villainess, is the only relief from the onslaught of spoofy humor, special effects and meaningless comic book mayhem.

June 18, 2014 | Full Review…

[A] loud, long and pointless spectacle.

Audience Reviews for Batman & Robin


Another entry in the Batman saga. Well made and features a great cast but miles away in comparison to the first two. This feels very camp and more comic like than the dark brooding Batman films by Tim Burton.

It is nearly impossible not to feel ashamed for everyone involved in this mess (especially Joel Schumacher), an over-the-top disastrous movie whose actors look like flamboyant drag queens in a colorful carnival parade uttering some of the worst lines ever written.

Well, at least Chris O'Donnell's nice to look at -- but that's about it for the "positives". The rest is a boring mess.
