HOW BORING CAN ONE FILM BE?
7 April 2003 | by (New York, USA) – See all my reviews

Pretty damn boring, if this movie is any indication! The only reasons to see this movie are the goofy bat-man (in a memorable flying sequence) and the goddess herself, Pam Grier, as a laughable panther-woman. Otherwise, avoid at all costs!
