Trivia

After the poor reception of Batman & Robin, several Batman projects were considered to substitute for the next Batman movie. One was a direct sequel, Batman Unchained written by Mark Protosevich. The second was an adaptation of the graphic novel, Batman: Year One. The last was a live-action adaptation of Batman Beyond (1999). None of those projects came to fruition, instead the franchise was rebooted with Batman Begins (2005). See more »

Goofs

When Poison Ivy and Bane arrive in the limousine, Ivy removes the top of the box that she had placed on her lap, and her brown gloves are clearly visible. In the next shot, her gloves have disappeared. See more »

one of the ten worst films of all time
13 November 2004 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

How did the Batman series begin so well and come to this? OK, none of the films are masterpieces, but this one is insulting. Anyone who paid to see it should join a class action to recover damages against the filmmakers.

Lousy acting from great actors. And some of the worst -- perhaps the worst -- set design ever. The plot is a grab bag, literally. A little of this, a little of that. No particular rationale behind any of it. I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall as the cast watched the film. Every single one must have thought, "It can't get any worse than this."

The most amazing thing of all: Director Joel Schumacher has actually been entrusted with directing jobs after this.
