Movie Summary

Joel Schumacher
Released:
1997
Rating:
PG-13

Batman & Robin is a 1997 superhero movie and the sequel to 1995's smash hit Batman Forever, starring George Clooney and Chris O'Donnell as the eponymous dark knight and his loyal sidekick, as well as Uma Thurman and Arnold Schwarzenegger as the villains Poison Ivy and Mr. Freeze. The film features several other characters from the classic comic book series, including Batgirl (played by Alicia Silverstone), Commissioner Gordon (Pat Hingle), Bane (Jeep Swanson), and Bruce Wayne's devoted butler, Alfred (Michael Gough). In this installment, Batman and Robin face great odds as three powerful villains conspire to take over Gotham City and bring an end to Batman's campaign of vigilante justice. However, with the help of their new crime-fighting partner, Batgirl, they just might be able to take down the terrible trio. Batman & Robin was another big success at the box office, featuring an original score from composer Elliot Goldblatt.
