the fall of batman
9 September 2010 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

I have seen posters and trailers for this flick. Even fangoria had an article about this dreg. The attention was out there because three actors from the eighties were in it, Val Kilmer, Armand Assante and Eric Roberts. Val is playing the main role. He's the villain, but what a performance he gives. Really, the fall of an icon, the fall of batman (you get it?). The only thing he has to do is stair into the camera or sitting at a table at a police office. One let down. So far I haven't seen a flick from Philippe Martinez. And I never will do it again. This is just tedious. It's more about Val then about the experiment. Oh yes, they promise that the experiment will take two days so lungs will explode and eyes will crystallize. But none of that happen. And even the performances in the sauna are a big let down. Eric Roberts was never one of my favorites and here again he shows me why. All we get in the sauna is a bit of arguments and a slashing throat, some fights and the best thing, but that's for later. Even all of that is so wooden, the blood flows a bit but never is frightening or whatever. There is a scene with a nail gun machine. You see the machine, You see the face of the scary girl, then it's bang bang bang and we see the result, not convincing at all. If you got three nails in your head well blood will flow. Here we see the nails, never in close up and a drip of blood. The reason that my collection has this flick is the fact that I found it on Blu Ray for 5 euro's. And now for the best part, Eve Mauro. If you want to see bouncy balls, well you will have two minutes of slo-mo and close ups. And if you can't get enough of her juggs go watch Wicked Lake.
