When The Riddler tells Two-Face the bargain, Two-Face gives him the "heads, we accept", and "tails, we decline" speech. He then tosses his coin into the air. We then get a close-up shot of the coin. But when it is coming back down, it is clear that it lands on tails, not heads. But, traditionally a coin flip involves catching, covering and flipping the coin again, so we see heads down, which would flip to heads up and Two-Face accepting. See more »

The original cut shown in previews was too long, and a large sequence in the Batcave, explaining much of the plot including the Batman Forever title, was edited out. The original opening sequence depicted TwoFace's escape from Arkham Asylum. Dr. Burton arrives at TwoFace's cell to find the ceiling blown away and the words: "The Bat Must Die" written on a wall. This scene was shot but cut. The original opening can be partially seen in the U2 music video "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me". In it the infamous "THE BAT MUST DIE" line is shown for a second written in a wall with bloody white letters. See more »
Batman Forever is a great film, Great plot, And better story,
When i had exceptions to see a Batman flick. I wanted to but that awful Batman & Robin franchise which was ruined by Joel Schumacher was not my favorite anymore. Despite the certain changes and lame dialoge in it. But when i had a chance. I saw Batman Forever with my sister and it was awesome.
Batman Forever is a completely different Batman film not because of the way it's made or designed. But because of the way there is no jokes involved and of course how good it really is. But the way Joel Schumacher did this movie is great. I give him praise and respect for being a great director. Plus the script as i would say would count at least for this film too.
But most importantly we have both new villains here and one is The Riddler played by (Jim Carrey) and the other is Two-Face played by (Tommy Lee Jones) and next we have Batman played by (Val Kilmer) and of course Robin played by (Chris O' Donnell) Of course Val Kilmer is better then George Clooney was in Batman & Robin. And who could forget that actor anyways. Trying to be better then Val Kilmer. Well i have 2 words for George Clooney, He is not better, Nor does his performance entertain. It's horrible and because Val Kilmer is better then him I'm not gonna talk about George Clooney anymore or Batgirl for that matter.
The Riddler and Two-Face are loose in Gotham City. Batman and his sidekick Robin must stop them before they escape. However The Riddler is obsessed with riddles and Two-Face must exact his revenge on the city. With their plans and challenges for the heroes Batman and Robin. Nothing is gonna stop them and they will make both heroes pay.
This film's special effects are awesome, A lot of times we don't get to see what actually happens. But then there is something going on. And the CGI was awesome too like in the fight scenes which totally makes this film a great film in my case. So apparently nothing is missing from the effects so it's all good. Because i like it that way.
Two-Face played by Tommy Lee Jones in this film is scary, Yet violent, In this film he deals with both justice and revenge against the boy wonder and in a way. Robin the boy wonder wants his revenge on Two-Face but yet confusing here is that Two-Face has henchmen at his side who wear the same red and black Two-Face masks. I don't get it. Does it simply mean that they were burned or did they really have to wear them. Also why do they use guns that look like lazers. I don't get this either, Is it like they could zap someone with them like Batman or the boy wonder Robin. Because that is some evil henchmen that Two-Face has got.
Also The Riddler played by Jim Carrey is indeed among funny. He has starred in movies like Ace Ventura Pet Detective, The Truman Show, And many more of his films. He recently did a good job in Batman Returns because he would always give people riddles and questions about how evil he is and what he's thinking. So he is smart and he does want to get rid of Batman in order to become evil. But what will it take him and why. That's only up to someone to decide weather his plan will be put into action or not. But still it's amazing too.
Also this film has funny scenes all throughout it. Like some where Batman is taking out the bad guys and also hurting the henchman is amazing and is something to laugh at.
Also if you are a fan then get Batman Forever, A great film for the Budget! Yet this is the best Batman film out there from Joel Schumacher and better then Batman & Robin. A great storyline, Plot, And concept makes this the ultimate film to see of all time.
