Batman & Robin (1997)

After finishing this movie, I had the following thoughts: the movie was campy, the plot was weak, I was bored, and the dialogue was terrible.

In particular, I did not know until after watching this movie that it was horrible: 3.7/10 on (206,039 reviews) and 10% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Mr. Freeze / Dr. Victor Fries (Arnold Schwarzenegger)

While the costume design for Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy were cool, they would not be sufficient reasons to watch the film.

I suppose the only reason to watch the film would be to complete the 1989 Batman film series. Otherwise, it's a waste of time.

Netflix determined the movie for me as a 98% match. I decided to give the movie a thumbs down.

Remark: Yesterday I watched Ocean's Eleven which also stars George Clooney.

Batman / Bruce Wayne (George Clooney)

Instant Comments:
I don't think I've seen this movie before, at least not from start to finish.
What!? So this movie has Chris O'Donnell but a different Batman?
Ha. This is why Superman works alone.
Hehe. Robin has the bike.
Huh. Why didn't he just fire directly at Batman? (as opposed to shooting the dinosaur)
Not sure of this physics involved with their safely landing back on Earth...

Poison Ivy / Dr. Pamela Isley (Uma Thurman)

Cheesy. "Stay cool. Bird Boy."
Not sure why they casted Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze. He doesn't look like a scientist.
Hehe. That definitely doesn't look like Uma Thurman.
It's John Glover, Lionel Luthor, in television series Smallville.
Oh, I can see Thurman's face when she's speaking with Dr. Woodrue (Glover).
Hah. "I hate when people talk during the movie."

Batgirl / Barbara Wilson (Alicia Silverstone), Batman, and Robin / Dick Grayson (Chris O'Donnell)

Ha. His Batman Forever credit card. "Never leave home without it."
Hehe. Riddler's outfit and Two-Face's outfit are in the Criminal Property Locker.
Huh. He turned a switch on to freeze the room but they motioned like they were choking from gas.
Ha. "Anatomically correct rubber suit."
Why did she remove her ears.
Wait a minute, Robin was wearing a different suit earlier in the film. And his new uniform so happens to match Batgirl's uniform.

Mr. Freeze

Good thing Batgirl intuitively knows how to use all these Bat gadgets proficiently (sarcasm)
So dumb. "I got you!" Moments later. "No, I got you."
Smile. Similar ending to the last film where the characters run down inf ront of the light.
