Storyline

The Dark Knight of Gotham City confronts a dastardly duo: Two-Face and the Riddler. Formerly District Attorney Harvey Dent, Two-Face incorrectly believes Batman caused the courtroom accident which left him disfigured on one side; he has unleashed a reign of terror on the good people of Gotham. Edward Nygma, computer-genius and former employee of millionaire Bruce Wayne, is out to get the philanthropist; as The Riddler he perfects a device for draining information from all the brains in Gotham, including Bruce Wayne's knowledge of his other identity. Batman/Wayne is/are the love focus of Dr. Chase Meridan. Former circus acrobat Dick Grayson, his family killed by Two-Face, becomes Wayne's ward and Batman's new partner Robin the Boy Wonder.

Trivia

Bruce Wayne's voice in the film is almost similar to that of Kevin Conroy, the actor whom provided the voice of Bruce Wayne/Batman in Batman: The Animated Series (1992). See more »

Goofs

When Bruce is speaking into his video watch (when Alfred tells him the Batmobile is missing), each time the watch is seen is closeup, Bruce's finger moves up the side. It must have been filmed only once, then reused, with the video of Alfred added later. See more »

Joel Schumacher should drop to his knees and thank Jim Carrey
9 June 2003 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

I wonder what it's like to sit at home and realize you had just destroyed a multi million franchise.

Well, Schumacher should know.

And when I say destroy, I mean BUTCHER. If George Clooney was the delivery boy, Schumacher was the conductor of this orchestra of disaster.

But if "Batman & Robin" completely destroyed the series, this one was the setup before finally transforming Tim Burton's Gothic vision back into the campiness of the old insane TV series (but, unlike the series, it wasn't so bad it was good).

Jim Carrey was the only thing that made it worthwhile and watchable. The guy simply carries the entire movie on his shoulders. He is truly a gifted actor.

Unfortunately, Jim Carrey wasn't around for the aforementioned sequel...
