Hello everyone! 🙂
I’ve just seen the first of three birthday presents from my best mate from school, Stephen.
I enjoyed ‘Batman Forever’! This was the third movie of the original ‘Batman’ film series. It was produced by Tim Burton and directed by Joel Schumacher in 1995. I’m not claiming to be an avid ‘Batman’ fan, but this was a superhero movie that I found very engaging and entertaining to watch!
I was impressed with the stellar cast featured in the film. I liked Val Kilmer’s portrayal of Bruce Wayne/Batman. I liked the balance Val Kilmer put in his performance as both Bruce Wayne and Batman and found it interesting how he interacted with Chase Meridian; Robin and his two enemies.
The two villains of the movie are Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face and Jim Carrey as the Riddler. Both were superb as villains, but Jim Carrey stood out for me as the wacky and sometimes over-the-top Riddler. Sometimes it was difficult to take him seriously, but he fitted the role perfectly as the Riddler.
Nicole Kidman stars as Dr. Chase Meridian, the romantic interest of Bruce Wayne/Batman in the film. I really liked Nicole’s sexy performance as Chase and when she shows an interest in both Batman and Bruce. It was nice how she interacted with the two men before she discovers the truth.
Chris O’Donnell also stars as Robin, who makes his first appearance in the ‘Batman’ film series. I liked Robin’s introduction in this film. It was interesting how he meets up with Batman; becomes his side-kick and wanting to get revenge on Two-Face. Both Batman and Robin are a good team in this.
The cast also includes Michael Gough, who I’ve seen in ‘Doctor Who’ and is great as Alfred. There’s also Pat Hingle who stars as Commissioner James Gordon. It was a nice surprise to see René Auberjonois (Odo from ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’) make an appearance as Dr. Burton in the film.
‘Batman Forever’ has been an action-packed and enjoyable superhero movie with a great cast; superb villains and a good story. I enjoyed the action sequences with the Batmobile; other Bat vehicles and I really liked the performances of Val Kilmer as Batman and Jim Carrey as the wacky Riddler!
Thanks for reading!
Bye for now!
