Re: The Official Batman Forever Thread - Part 2
I talked about this in another thread, but, tonally, Batman Forever really isn't that significantly different from Batman '89 and Batman Returns; the disturbing freakishness of BR is gone, yes, but the film still retains the gothic/noir visuals and characterizations of B89 and BR, and Kilmer's Bruce/Batman feels like the same character as Keaton's.
Kilmer also remains my second-favorite of the live-action Batmen behind Bale primarily because of his fight scenes, the way he looks in the suit, and the way he plays the scene where he tells Chase about why he became Batman. I also like the chemistry he has with Chris O'Donnell.
