hen I sat down to watch this film, if you can call it that, I had an inkling of what I was in store for. But I had seen some bad films in my life, and I figured I could handle it. So I Didn't prepare. As I watched the first Five minutes I said to myself HEY this isn't so bad. The jokes in the opening scene were mildly funny and Schumacher had a little Indiana Jones type teaser sequence, just like he opened Batman Forever. Freeze looked impressive, and was definitely intriguing. Until he opened his mouth and started yelling "Get The Heroes!!" Then all hell broke loose, and The Devil in the guise Of Joel Schumacher took over. A band of criminals on Ice Skates attacked Batman and Robin with Hockey sticks. I had never seen anything so ludicrous since the Joker and The Penguin concealed their identities with simple eyemasks in the 1966 Batman series!! Then it happened! Batman and Robin clicked their heels together and ice skates came out of their boots. I knew it was over Right there! This Movie hadn't a chance! And It was over I might as well have turned it off then and spared myself the Pain that followed. Mister Freeze played by Arnold Schwarzenegger was Even more ridiculous than the '60's Batman villain known as King Tut! That is something I Never thought I would say. The only problem is the 1960's Batman series was and Still is highly enjoyable. Poison Ivy suffered from the Uma Thurman disease! The Uma Thurman disease afflicts Uma Thurman characters and leaves them badly under written, Yet surprisingly Ms. Thurman does whatever she can with these characters! For further evidence Please see the Truth about Cats and Dogs and Gattaca, Like I said it's not her fault. Poison Ivy just did Not belong in this film, and neither than the badly used Batgirl. She actually wasnt in large chunks of the story!! And The editing went so bad that we saw her leave on one day and return several days later! Not only that but it was obvious that she lost a LOT of weight before her first scene a
