Bat­man and Robin (1997)

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

“Al­low me to break the ice. My name is Freeze. Learn it well, for it’s the chill­ing sound of your doom.” — Mr. Freeze (Arnold Sch­warzeneg­ger) loves his cold-tem­per­a­ture ref­er­ences.

This is the ab­so­lute nadir of the Bat­man fran­chise and comic book-in­spired movies in gen­eral. In 2010, an Em­pire Mag­a­zine poll rated Bat­man and Robin the worst film of all time, pe­riod.

Comic books had be­come more so­phis­ti­cated (re­mem­ber that Alan Moore’s Watch­men was writ­ten a decade be­fore this movie came out) but Schu­macher and writer Akiva Golds­man went com­pletely ret­ro­grade retro.
