George Clooney Batman – After Michael Keaton and Val Kilmer, George Clooney picked up the batsuit in 1997 and rides onto the journey of Batman Series. The movie was called Batman and Robin. After the huge success of three previous movies of the series, Batman & Robin was hugely anticipated movie of the year. However, upon its release, the movie was hugely criticized and received extremely negative reviews. People didn’t like the film for the toyetic and camp approach, as well as possible homosexual innuendo added by Schumacher and it even received the nomination for Worst Picture of the Year. This might be the one of the worst George Clooney Movies ever.
Batman & Robin took George Clooney as Batman and alongside him also starred Arnold Schwarzenegger, Uma Thurman, Chris O’Donnel, Alicia Silverstone and Michael Gough. The film tells the story of Batman and Robin struggling to keep their partnership together while trying to stop Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy and Bane from covering Gotham City with ice and vegetation.
From my point of view, George Clooney Batman a.k.a Batman & Robin sucked in every possible way. This film will make you lose faith in Hollywood. Even George Clooney himself called this movie “a waste of money”. In Batman & Robin, Schumacher seems to be getting back to those roots. He treats the entire Batman franchise like a joke. Even if it was funny, this woule be betraying the name of Batman. But here, seeing as it’s not funny, it only succeeds in becoming the worst of the Batman movies, and, arguably, the worst films ever created.
“Batman”, the best of the series, was a dark, psychotic and complex movie with over the top acting and settings. The Batmobile was beautiful, as were the sets. The movie was forceful and interesting. “Batman Returns” shared some of the traits of its predecessor while adding more lunacy to the mix. It did suffer from the lack of the line talent (Jack Nicholson). And then Mr. Schumacher ruined everything. “Batman Forever” is a shame of a movie, but and to the worst he directed Batman & Robin with George Clooney as Batman. Since the movies are from the same series, there is no excuse for the director to run wild and away from the spirit of the originals, in which a sad soul has to fight crime in order to maintain sanity.
George Clooney Batman – There are so many wrong things about this film. But there are two things that are an insult to every film goer, The Batmobile is reduced to a clownmobile, and Batman’s suit has nipples in it. What a disgrace for a Batman movie.
And talking about George Clooney as Batman, he never should’ve been in the cast. He was just the most awkward Batman ever and didn’t fit the role at all, he was only used for his popularity. Batman and Robin failed completely to meet even the rock-bottom expectations I held for it when I saw it. The script is a complete wreck. The jokes are an insult to your intelligence. The acting isn’t especially bad, but they again, very little is required of the actors. The action sequendces are confusing and coherent. If you’re a Batman fan, then you will hate what Joel Schumacher did in this film. If you’re not a big Batman fan, you’ll just hate this movie just because it’s so freakin’ stupid.
