Batman & Robin


Batman opus #4 threw in too many stupid one-liners and ridiculous gadgets; Batman even has a personal credit card. This is to some extent a (not very funny) comedy that doesn’t know what to focus on; there’s two villains, Batgirl is introduced, Batman and Robin fight over a woman and Alfred is dying. None of it is interesting and the action scenes are just noisy. Arnold Schwarzenegger probably had fun as a very campy Mr. Freeze, but his character will leave viewers cold.

1997-U.S. 130 min. Color. Directed by Joel Schumacher. Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger (Victor Fries/Mr. Freeze), George Clooney (Bruce Wayne/Batman), Chris O’Donnell (Dick Grayson/Robin), Uma Thurman (Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy), Alicia Silverstone, Michael Gough… Pat Hingle, Elle Macpherson.

Trivia: Patrick Stewart was allegedly considered for the part of Mr. Freeze.

Razzie: Worst Supporting Actress (Silverstone).

Quote: “Allow me to break the ice. My name is Freeze. Learn it well. For it’s the chilling sound of your doom.” (Schwarzenegger introduces himself)
