There just aren't any memorable, exciting fight scenes. Sure, the scuffles with thugs in Batman are decent, but Burton has never been an action director. The clashes with Catwoman are snappy but brief. Batman Forever has a very disapointing face-off between Robin and Two-Face, and Batman doesn't even fight Two-Face or the Riddler! We know Two-Face can fight, and the Riddler not only has that cane, but he's downloaded the memories of millions of people. Including Batman himself. So he should be able to put up a decent fight. In a comicbook movie, that makes sense. Forever could have been so much better with a two vs two climax, which would be the perfect symbolic conclusion to a movie all about duality. Then we have Batman & Robin, which ironically does have climactic showdowns, Batgirl against Poison Ivy, Batman against Freeze, Batgirl and Robin against Bane, but they are all lamer than a $20 fanboy production.
