      Thanks for the Review Simon,
      So frustrating - this Movie has some of my favourite Actors & Actresses, & so I am sad to say that I have watched it - in the dim past - twice. Which on reflection was three times too many.

      As much as I admire the attempt to return to camp - superheroes are such a fundamentally silly concept it's the only logical way to approach them - I think I'll stick with the best Batman movie ever made, the 1966 Adam West original. He remains the only actor to ever understand how to play the role, and I say that as a Keaton fan.

      I remember Clooney being cast as Batman not long after he was in From Dusk Til Dawn.

      My thoughts were if he was as cool as Batman as he was in Dusk, then we could be onto a winner.

      After approx 5 minutes of watching in the cinema, I realised I couldn't have been more wrong if I'd tried.

      Only the 2nd film I nearly walked out on.

      I wonder how many will buy this disaster on 4K disc, simply because it looks and sounds good?

      You know, the old excuse "It's good demo material!" I have a friend and about half of his modestly sized collection consists of films that he admits are crap, but has them because they're "good demo material". Leading one to wonder how many times people spend "demoing" their hardware as opposed to simply enjoying a good film?

      I prefer to think not so much that I bought Batman and Robin but more that I saved myself £6 on the other three by buying the bundle from the Warner Bros Shop and now at least I have a spare black UHD case in an emergency :D

      Nostalgia plays a massive part for me and this film-me and my mates went straight to the cinema after school to watch this on opening day. Certainly helped that Alicia Silverstone was in it!

      And I always loved that Sky Box Office always showed the first five minutes before scrambling it.

      It is the weakest of the four no doubt, but I still love it.
