| Batman tries to handle his dual identity, mentor a young Robin, and battle two unusual villains
I found this third feature in the series the most exciting. Mainly because of the way the characters are all integrated into the story with just about even screen time (it appears anyway). Val Kilmer's Batman/ Bruce Wayne is very serious and major steps above George Cooney's rendition.

Kilmer is believable. The origin of Robin is handled well and the introduction of Two Face (Tommy Lee Jones) and the Riddler (Jim Carrey) is well done. Both actors are well over the top in their performances and are aided by very explosive special effects. Finally to round out the quintet is the lovely Nicole Kidman as a renowned pyschologist (psychiatrist?) who is this movie's love interest.

The battle scenes are exciting and the movie doesn't have any dull moments. There definitely is not a "Tim Burton" feel to the movie, outside of the psyches of the characters. The humor his the right tempo and doesn't go totally on the stupid side as in the later BATMAN AND ROBIN. It is one movie that has a great opening and a great ending, like those good old James Bond films.

Trivia

The original trailer shows Bruce Wayne face to face with and spreading his arms out to mimic a large bat whether in his dreams or as some type of delusion but this never made it to the theatrical release of the movie.


Quotes

Alfred Pennyworth: Can I persuade you to take a sandwich with you, sir?
Batman: I'll get drive-thru.


Goofs

When Batman shows up at Chase's apartment, he comes in through her balcony. It is pouring rain outside, but Batman is totally dry.


Crazy Credits

Crews of three separate units are listed, under a pair vaguely identified as "Unit #1" and "Unit #2" as well as an "Underwater Unit"


Alternate Versions

All pre-2005 UK versions were cut by 1 minute 38 secs, and these were voluntary cuts by the distributor to ensure a PG rather than a 12 rating. The cuts were as follows........ A shot of a cutting torch being picked up just after the main logo is missing. Two Face's reply after the guard says "You said you'd let me live" is missing. After the 'punctual funeral' line, Two Face shouting "Kill the Bat!" has been removed from the soundtrack and replaced with music and guards grunting. When the elevator dings just before Batman exits, Two Face's shout of "Blast him!" was not present in the UK version. The fight outside the elevator has lost a lot of sound effects, as well as a sequence where Batman drops his leg sharply onto a thug's chest, complete with a loud thud. Batman delivering a backward head butt and breaking a thug's nose in extreme close-up has been removed. Close-ups of kicks to midriffs and faces are also missing. Two Face's lines in the helicopter about the acid have been removed. In the sequence where the helicopter pilot is killed, Two Face emptying an entire clip into the helicopter pilot has been trimmed, along with shots showing the bullets riddling the pilot's body from the front. The cut UK version had only three shots fired, and the pilot is shown slumping from behind. The death of Stickley does not show him stopping on the window ledge, and hanging in terror, before Nygma runs over and says "Fred, babe! You are fired! Or should I say...terminated?". With this, he pulls the hat off him and he falls down, but this was all cut from the UK print. Two Face's line in the circus big top was cut from the UK version, "Our new act for your personal amazement: we call it - Massacre Under The Big Top!". A shot of Nygma laughing at the above line is also missing. When the Mayor asks what Two Face wants at the circus, his reply is shortened from "Batman - bruised, broken, bleeding. In a word, dead!" to simply "Batman". The UK version is missing the sequence where Bruce Wayne kills one guard on the right side of the big drum by coming up behind him, breaking his neck, and smacking him in the face as he falls. When Two Face flips his coin before killing the Graysons, after his evil laugh he goes on to say "Their kind of day", which was missing in the UK version. As the bomb is raised through the roof of the circus, a quick sequence of Bruce flipping a guard over and kicking him hard in the gut is missing. When Two Face accidentally kills two of his men in the car, their screams have been cut short in the UK version, and a shot of the driver's terrified face has been removed. The fight at Nygma's party loses some impact sounds. Shortly after this, Batman makes a guard do the splits and another crack accompanies this, but the sound has virtually been eliminated from the soundtrack. A small crack has been greatly reduced in volume as Batman twists a thug's arm backwards Robin throwing Two Face a vicious head butts after the line, "This is for me!" has been replaced in the UK version, by removing the punch Robin throws after he says "This is for my brother" and reinserting in place of the head butt.
