Dark Knight of Gotham City confronts a dastardly duo: Two-Face and the Riddler. Formerly District Attorney Harvey Dent, Two-Face incorrectly believes Batman caused the courtroom accident which left him disfigured on one side; he has unleashed a reign of terror on the good people of Gotham. Edward Nygma, computer-genius and former employee of millionaire Bruce Wayne, is out to get the philanthropist; as The Riddler he perfects a device for draining information from all the brains in Gotham, including Bruce Wayne's knowledge of his other identity. Batman/Wayne is/are the love focus of Dr. Chase Meridan. Former circus acrobat Dick Grayson, his family killed by Two-Face, becomes Wayne's ward and Batman's new partner Robin the Boy Wonder. Like its predecessors “Batman Forever” was a huge success, earning more than $336 million worldwide, exceeding its sequel, though not trumping its 1989 release. The film was nominated for 3 Oscars, 6 MTV Movie Awards, 2 Kids’ Choice Awards, and a Golden Globe. Its Grammy nominated soundtrack features Method Man, U2, and most notably the hit Seal song “Kiss from a Rose.” Due to the franchise’s continued popularity a fourth part was released in 1997: “Batman and Robin.” “Batman Forever” is rated PG-13 for strong stylized action.
