Re: Was BF a "decent" Batman Film or Not?
I'm of the mind that it was a decent "Batman" film in general. It had it's good points, as well as its bad points. I think the original Director's Cut had the ability to help the film moreso than anything. It had a pretty decent cast, but I just think it was style over substance. Some of the characters were misplayed somewhat or didn't come across as well as the characters could have.
I think it was a throwback to the Batman television series. All in all though, because I don't want to get into specifics, I thought it was watchable. It wasn't particularly as good as B'89, but it wasn't as bad as B&R. I think it is in the buffer zone. Some people like it because it isn't Keaton/Burton, some people hate it because of Schumacher and some people are in the middle.
