THE FILM / BATMAN FOREVER
Saturday 15 July 1995
"This colossally stupid enterprise," said Time Out on behalf of virtually the entire critical fraternity.
"Audiences sitting through its relentless parade of set-piece destructiveness will feel as if they've been straitjacketed and compelled to play a never ending video game" (Evening Standard). "Too confusing and manic" (Daily Mirror). Val Kilmer as Batman "has all the charisma of an assistant manager in Dorking" (The Times).
On general release almost everywhere. If you manage to miss it, never fear, there is sure to be a merchandising opportunity "Near You".
The movie that puts the cod back into codpieces. Come back Batman director Tim Burton, all is forgiven. Watch the TV re-runs instead.
