Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Of all modern Batmans, George Clooney bears the closest physical resemblance to the comic-book hero, but there isn't much to say about his performance because there isn't much performance to discuss."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"[A] loud, long and pointless spectacle."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Thurman aside, B&R is about what you've come to expect: loud, frenzied, brawling and fixated on sleek, shiny, high-tech vehicles and gadgetry."
‑ Leah Rozen, People Magazine
"Batman & Robin is as bad as anything on screen this year."
‑ Rod Dreher, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"Keaton, Kilmer and Clooney. Sounds like a law firm. Look for a fourth partner soon."
‑ Gary Thompson, Philadelphia Daily News
"The movie has its entertaining flashes, but there's too much bat-jive and bat-hokum."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"Batman & Robin won't kill the popular series, but it ought to slow it down a tad."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"Batman & Robin is less a movie than a razzle-dazzle video game."
‑ David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor
"Schumacher piles on the action, but this is still the least satisfying entry in the series."
‑ John Ferguson, Radio Times
"Nothing here approximates a consistent or engrossing story. Instead, we're left with clumsily filmed action sequences that are full of sound and fury, but signify nothing."
‑ Dennis King, Tulsa World
"In terms of new twists or narrative momentum. Poison Ivy, the sinuous villainess, is the only relief from the onslaught of spoofy humor, special effects and meaningless comic book mayhem."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"There's plenty to look at but nothing to feel."
‑ Dave Kehr, New York Daily News
"Clooney manages to keep even these scenes afloat with consistent good humor and unforced charm."
‑ Michael Ollove, Baltimore Sun
"Predictably dismal pop-operatic guff."
‑ , Total Film
"I've seen colonic X-rays more visually appealing than what Schumacher throws up on the screen."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
