Batman Forever

Batman Forever ★★

F

I wasn’t super big on Batman Forever when I first saw it and I still don’t really like it. The one thing I really like is Val Kilmer and his portrayal of Bruce/Batman. He’s pretty good here and does good with what he’s given. The rest of the movie though? Too campy. Don’t get me wrong, campiness can absolutely work in a movie, but here it feels like way too much. Tommy Lee Jones and Jim Carey are very talented actors, but they’re all over the place. It makes me look forward to Paul Dano’s portrayal of The Riddler in The Batman so much more now, as the serial killer aspect they seem to be going for in that film seems so much more interesting to me. Next up.. Batman and Robin. Oh boy...
