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.

Val Kilmer's marriage to Joanne Whalley ended during filming, with the divorce being finalized a year after this film came out. Whether or not the stress of Kilmer's failing marriage was a factor in his attitude on set and a factor in his strained working relationship with director Joel Schumacher is unknown. See more »

Although this movie might not be the best ever made, I loved it as a child, and cannot let go of the memories of this film. This film has a unique theme (music, set, characters, environments) that newer film just don't have. The whole bat cave invasion was a all time favorite. And seeing Batman & Robin partnering up is another. I love the score and just get minor flashback of the old days when I hear it. Say what you want about this film. It was loved when it came out, and shouldn't be hated, now that something better came out. I love this film and no matter what they say, I'm rolling with this film until its no more. Val Kilmer & Chris O'Donnell needs to do it again. 95 + Batman = Classic
