Batman Forever


Joel Schumacher was a great director. He directed many movies which were great. He then directed a movie called Batman Forever in 1995. It got mixed reviews. I actually like the film, but many people think it’s too cheesy for a Batman movie. I can see where they are coming from, but I disagree. The only thing I agree with is the poor casting, but I don’t want to get into that. The main plot revolves around Riddler and Two-Face teaming up to discover Batman’s true identity. The second plot revolves around Dick Grayson discovering Bruce Wayne lives a double life as Batman. Dick tries to earn Bruce’s respect and be his sidekick, but Bruce keeps refusing. The movie has some good moments. My favorite scene is where Two-Face chases Batman in his Batmobile, but  Batman escapes, leaving Two-Face’s car to blow up. My only major problem was having to see this slow build-up showing why Bruce takes Dick in as an orphan. That build-up lasts 30 minutes, which means they wasted 30 minutes of a 2 hour movie doing pointless build-up that could be spent focusing on other stuff. However, once Batman appears afterwards, the movie snaps you in again. The slow build-up and lack of good casting gives this film an 8/10. Thanks for reading and if you enjoyed this post, check out some of my other posts if you can.
