The Story Mechanic Part Fifteen: Batman & Robin Syndrome

GodisaGeek: "Schumacher missed the point of Batman. The list of things which were just wrong is too long to write down. Worse, he mistook his audience. He thought the people going to see Batman and Robin were just film fans, when in fact they were Batman fans as well. That’s what brought out the knives, and what catapulted the film into a million “Worst Ever …” list. If you are going to take a meaty dump on a beloved character, then you better back that choice up with a good movie.

Ask Chris O’Donnell’s career what it thought of that movie.

It seems to me that Ninja Theory are experiencing a very similar backlash with their Devil May Cry reboot. With a twist." (DmC: Devil May Cry, PS3, Xbox 360)
