Default Re: The Official Batman & Robin Thread

Here's my basic breakdown of the film's elements...

The Good

1) Getting Chris O'Donnell, Michael Gough, Pat Hingle, and Joel Schumacher all back.
2) Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze.
3) Alicia Silverstone as Batgirl (great chemistry with Chris)
4) The core story being loosely adapted from "Heart of Ice".

The Bad

1) The film's ultra-campy tone (I mostly blame WB for this)
2) George Clooney as Batman (he made a good Bruce, but the rest...no.)
3) Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy (completely miscast)
4) Bane being completely useless

The Ugly

1) No Val Kilmer
2) Way too damn much neon
3) No mention of Chase at all
4) Piranha plants...really?!
5) The "credit card" scene
