Batman must battle former district attorney Harvey Dent, who is now Two-Face and Edward Nygma, The Riddler with help from an amorous psychologist and a young circus acrobat who becomes his sidekick, Robin.
Superman returns to Earth after spending five years in space examining his homeworld Krypton. But he finds things have changed while he was gone, and he must once again prove himself important to the world.
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.Written by

The doctor in Arkham Asylum, referred to as doctor Burton (a nod to producer Tim Burton) is seen sporting Tim Burton's wild hairstyle. See more »
(at around 1h 30 mins) Young Bruce Wayne drops his father's diary when he falls into the cave, but lands with it in hand. This may be a deliberate, as the scene is a subjective view of a confusing, traumatic moment, when memory can become unreliable. See more »

The sequencing of much of the first half of the movie was altered to start the movie off with an action scene. Originally, a scene was supposed to show Two-Face escaping from the asylum. Cut to Bruce visiting his company and rejecting Nygma's invention, then seeing the bat signal and going off to fight Two-Face. (Note that in the theatrical version, there are sirens going off in the distance, when it is supposed to be Chase who sends the signal) The second time Bruce sees the signal, he meets with Chase. On his way back, he is attacked by Two-Face and ends up scaling the wall to escape. See more »

Batman Forever was clearly targeted for the more younger audience, and it did a very good job at that. I remember watching this as a child, and I enjoyed every moment of it from start to finish. The film was entertaining. Robin was great, and the villains especially the Riddler was amazing. Honestly, it was the Riddler that stole the show, and had it not been for Jim Carrey's performance, the film would've lost a lot of limelight; in other words, it would've almost been bad as Batman & Robin. Jim Carrey literally stole the show. The film is overly criticised, but there's no reason for it – really! I'm surprised how the director managed to get actors such as Carrey, Clooney and Arnold to participate in a superhero film due to their status and calibre. All in all, Batman Forever is slightly underrated, and is a good Batman film. Fantastic to watch during the 90s.
