Consensus: Joel Schumacher's tongue-in-cheek attitude hits an unbearable limit in Batman & Robin resulting in a frantic and mindless movie that's too jokey to care much for.

Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal

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.

Steven Rea
Philadelphia Inquirer

[A] loud, long and pointless spectacle.

Schumacher is like a bad stepdad who thinks we'll love him if he just feeds us candy all day. (Yes, Burton is the daddy in this metaphor - the manic-depressive, annoyingly emo daddy.)

The movie has its entertaining flashes, but there's too much bat-jive and bat-hokum.

Batman & Robin won't kill the popular series, but it ought to slow it down a tad.

People Magazine

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.

Rita Kempley
Washington Post

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.

There's plenty to look at but nothing to feel.

Batman & Robin is less a movie than a razzle-dazzle video game.

A visual treat, but an overall trick. Batman & Robin fails to deliver with senseless innuendos as well as uninspiring performances from most of its cast.… More

Well, at least Chris O'Donnell's nice to look at -- but that's about it for the "positives". The rest is a boring mess.

After Joel Schumacher reinvented the franchise with Batman Forever, which was a decent entry, nothing awful or great either, this film proved to be his… More
