Batman & Robin (1997) - Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman), Bane (Jeep Swensen)

Who's the most disappointing comic to movie translation? What did you see that was so different from the original that it made you cringe?

It's time for the results of last times poll and the new question.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 came out a few weeks back and with it came a brand new interpretation of some new and familiar villains. This week we got to see the new Batman costume and Batmobile for Man of Steel 2. Some are happy with the changes and some are outraged.

So here's the question: What was the most ridiculous and outrageous comic book to live action translation you've ever seen?

Vote below and come back in two weeks for the results and the next poll.

Come back next week for the bi-weekly caption contest and comes back in two weeks for the next poll.

Check the comments for why I chose Bane as the worst ever.

Bane (Batman and Robin) - The Bane in the comics is smart, strong and lethal. The Bane in this movie is mute, dumb and clumsy. He has a dog collar and green skin. Plus, he's not even remotely Hispanic.

I think Batman and Robin would make pretty much everyone's lists. It's so hard to choose beyond that. There are those completely awful ones like "Captain America" (1990), "The Punisher" with Dolph Lundgren, "Steel" starring Shaq, Roger Corman's "Fantastic Four," and the hot mess that was "The Spirit."

Pat Dilloway said...

They pretty much got the mask right (unlike Nolan), so that's something.

Yeah, I'd have to say Batman and Robin tops my list.

I met I Jake... he got on the wrong side of the Empire, sad he got harassed. Nice kid! Blame that other guy for looking for inexperienced unknowns..

Although I would've loved to see Benicio Del Toro's Darth Maul, I'm happy with how the character turned out.


And Meet Joe Black deserves to be rediscovered, darn it!

Maurice Mitchell said...

I'd give them that but they ruined it with the Gimp look.

Going to have to, pretty much, agree with you here, Maurice. Bane was pretty awful...heck, the whole franchise was pretty disappointing. I was also pretty disappointed with Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern....that was pretty terrible, as well.

Maurice Mitchell said...

I almost picked that one Pat. All wonderfully awful choices.

Craptacular

I agree with the '97 movie. It was pretty bad.

Maurice Mitchell said...

That is a good choice Mark. The trailer looked awesome!

DAVID WALSTON said...

I concur with Bane, but I realy despised Mr Freeze. The dialogue was terrible and the way he had emotions, and was not cold. No pun intended!

Nigel Mitchell said...

Those people who left "Black" were missing out. But maybe if Darth Maul hadn't been reduced to just a stuntman, Lucas wouldn't have killed him off and he would've been in the sequels.

I'm not sure I get number 6. The very first time we see a lightsaber in A New Hope (Ben giving it to Luke), Luke lights it up on screen. Granted it's a quick cut, but it's activated on screen.

Keith Silva said...

#6 is wrong. Lightsabers are shown activating and deactivating almost ALWAYS in the Original Triology. Check yo facts!
