Possibly the worst of the Shadows of the Bat series
4 February 2008 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is the least interesting Shadows of the Bat entry that I've seen... now, I have yet to watch the one for Batman Forever, but given that that film was at least tolerable, I could see its entry being superior to this, if only slightly. Goldsman(Akiva, the screen-writer for both of Schumacher's Batman movies) offers up the explanation/excuse for the movie that if comic book characters aren't changed around some, they won't survive in the long run. Michael E. Uslan briefly sums up what each of the four films are like, which era of Batman comics, which is quite interesting. It is pointed out that Joel saw it very much as a comic, which helps explain(also mentioned is the fact that he doesn't like it too serious). And he himself actually apologizes(well, perhaps only to the people who loved Batman Forever, but were disappointed by Batman & Robin), which helps, I guess. John Glover doesn't say terribly much, but it isn't bad, and one of the things is somewhat amusing(if *really* obvious). O'Donnell comes across as much smarter and grown-up than in the other special features on the DVD(the 2-Disc Special Edition release of Batman & Robin). The approach to the film is described, and any fan will be able to tell right away where they went wrong(heck, if you have a basic concept of what Batman is, as a character, you can). Arnold tells us what made him choose the part, helpful for those who stay up nights wondering. The working with the toy companies and such is mentioned, as is the choice of letting the costumes include the infamous nipples. I suppose you can watch this if you are interested in these movies, but I wouldn't make it a point to watch this. I recommend this to anyone in aforementioned group... and anyone who wants to hear Schumacher apologize(just remember, even a DVD will eventually be worn, so limit your use of the rewind button, no matter how nice it is to listen to). 5/10
