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.
Batman and Robin are back working side-by-side to stop the villains of Gotham City, but is there tension appearing between them, especially when one villainess who calls herself Poison Ivy can make anyone fall in love with her...literally. Along with Poison Ivy, the icy Mr. Freeze is freezing anything which gets in his way from achieving his goal.Written by
This is the only Batmobile in which there is only one seat, in all other Batmobiles they had at least two front seats. In addition, this is the only sequel directed by the same director to not feature the same Batmobile design from the previous film, as the car shown in Batman Forever (1995) was destroyed by the Riddler.

I want a car. Chicks dig the car.
This is why Superman works alone.

There is perhaps no film more misunderstood than Joel Schumacher's 1997 masterpiece `Batman and Robin.' But I am confident that over time, people will come to realize the epic grandeur of this fine piece of cinema.
Schumacher only hinted at his level of greatness in the previous `Batman Forever.' This time around, his direction and plotting are top-notch, and he draws unbeatable performances from the entire ensemble cast. George Clooney is easily the best actor to step into the Bat Suit yet - his Batman is deeper and more multi-dimensional than one can even imagine. Arnold Schwarzenegger gives a chilling face to evil as Mr. Freeze, and Uma Thurman is positively spellbinding as Poison Ivy. Even the smaller roles are unforgettable - Chris O'Donnell once again proves he's the best young Hollywood has to offer, and model Elle MacPherson steals every scene she's in.
And might I mention, Alicia Silverstone was coldly snubbed by the Academy for her heartfelt performance as Bat Girl. Who won that year? Probably some over-praised, overrated British actress. Why was Alicia's performance so shamefully overlooked? No other performance that year took a more profound and meaningful look at the beauty and fragility of the human condition.
Don't listen to the countless naysayers who fail to grasp the greatness of this fine work. It is surely a treat for viewers young and old. A+
