BATMAN FOREVER (1995)

An A-list cast shines in this continued tale of the "Dark Knight" of Gotham City. This time around, Batman has to battle two villains: Two-Face and the Riddler. The former blames Batman for his unsightly appearance, simply wanting him dead. The latter, however, is a vengeful former employee of Wayne Enterprises who, jealous of the celebrity status of Bruce Wayne, uses his "riddling" powers to manipulate both Wayne and Batman, gaining insight into Bruce's double-identity along the way. Meanwhile, the beautiful, albeit eclectic Dr. Chase Meridan moves in on Wayne's personal life and one Dick Grayson, left orphaned after his parents encountered Two-Face, joins Batman's vengeful pursuits as none other than Robin the "Boy Wonder."

The highly energized cast includes: Val Kilmer, Tommy Lee Jones, Jim Carrey, Nicole Kidman, Chris O'Donnell, Michael Gough, and Pat Hingle.

Director Joel "The Client" Schumacher's BATMAN FOREVER is the best, funniest, most balanced Batman adventure yet.

Director Joel "The Client" Schumacher's "Batman Forever," is the best, funniest, most balanced Batman adventure yet.

The highly energized cast includes Val Kilmer, Tommy Lee Jones, Jim Carrey, Nicole Kidman, Chris O' Donnell, Michael Gough, and Pat Hingle.

The basic story revolves around the dastardly plot, hatched by the Riddler (Jim Carrey) and Two Face (Tommy Lee Jones) to become incredibly smart and powerful by zapping the minds of Gotham city residents by an invention created by the Riddler. The Riddler, Edward Nygma, once worked for Bruce Wayne's Company. When Wayne (Val Kilmer), rejects this new invention of Edward's, Edward schemes to get even with Wayne, and personally benefit from his own invention. Batman finds that he has two new allies, Robin and a psychologist, Dr. Chase Meridian (Nicole Kidman) to help him battle this evil partnership formed between the Riddler and Two Face.

This Batman introduces Robin,the boy wonder, who is now Bruce Wayne's ward, and Batman's acrobatic sidekick, played by Chris O'Donnell. Robin is out for revenge as Two Face killed his family during a circus performance. Chris O'Donnell is convincing

Val Kilmer is particularly good here. Unlike Michael Keaton and George Clooney, Kilmer is credible in the Batman scenes AND as millionaire Bruce Wayne.

With Jim Carrey's Riddler and Tommy Lee Jones' Two-Face offer the viewer a double dose of bad guys. While Carrey fans may dig his wildly overdone antics, Tommy Lee Jones really comes across better, by doing less, proving once again that less is more.

Nicole Kidman is stunning as amorous psychologist who becomes Kilmer's love interest. She's never looked better, bringing much spice and tang to her sexy shrink role.

Drew Barrymore has a small role as Sugar, one of Two Face's groupies.

"Batman Forever" is a new classic film because it provides wild, fantastic, eye-popping comic book style entertainment in a manner that has frequently been attempted but rarely achieved.

If you enjoyed BATMAN FOREVER you may like THE MASK, BATMAN AND ROBIN, DARK CITY, and/or BATMAN.
