  • It's the lightest of the Batman movies, the most cartoony, the dumbest and the least ambitious. But it holds the audience's attention, brings on a few laughs and never really gets boring. show more

  • Batman & Robin, like the first three films in the series, is wonderful to look at, and has nothing authentic at its core. show more

  • George Clooney looks great in a cape, but this fourth installment in the series has invested so much capital in razzle-dazzle special effects that it hardly matters whose head is under the pointy-eared helmet. show more
