Storyline

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.

The best one out of them all
3 August 1999 | by djm-11See all my reviews

How can you not like Batman Forever? It is excellent. Jim Carrey is awesome as The Riddler. His jokes are so funny, you want to cry. Two-Face is a good partner. Although overshadowed by Carrey, Tommy Lee Jones does a great job as Two-Face. Val Kilmer is decent as Batman, but is the worst one out of the three who played the caped crusader. Chris'O'Donnell and Nicole Kidman act great in this movie. Batman Forever has it all.
