Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde star in this romantic drama directed by Shana Feste.
Joel Schumacher favours colour and set design over story, wit, structure, character and anything else to make a half decent movie in this fourth outing for the Dark Knight
Actors and directors alike should beware the dangers of scenery and costumes that are more important to a film than they are - and this is a textbook example of what can go wrong.
Fourth in the Batman series, Schumacher's film sees Clooney don the leather and rubber cowl of the Dark Knight Detective, O'Donnell reprise his role as troubled sidekick Robin and introducing ridiculous villains Mr Freeze, played by Schwarzenegger, and Thurman's Poison Ivy. Oh, and Silverstone turns up as wild child motorbike-riding Batgirl.
But it has no heart, it's an empty piece of work that fails to deliver on anything other than very soft core fetishism.
Batman & Robin is the film that so devastated the franchise, it would take Christopher Nolan and a Hoover Dam-powered defibrilator to revive it.
