Editorial Reviews

When Batman (Adam West) and Robin (Burt Ward) get a tip that Commodore Schmidlapp (Reginald Denny) is in danger aboard his yacht, they launch a rescue mission. But the tip is a set-up by four of the most powerful villains ever, who seek to defeat the Dynamic Duo once and for all! Armed with a dehydrator that can turn humans into dust, the fearsome foursome intends to take over the world! Can the Caped Crusaders use their high-flying heroism and groovy gadgetry to declaw Catwoman (Lee Meriwether), ice the Penguin (Burgess Meredith), upstage the Joker (Cesar Romero), and stump the Riddler (Frank Gorshin) in time?

The key things to know about the DVD are:
1) The colors jump off the screen, it is a great transfer
2) The featurette with Adam West (Batman) and Burt Ward (Robin) is good, though they cover a lot of the same ground in the commentary
3) The Batmobile feature is very cool
4) The commentary is awesome. Adam and Burt have a great chemistry and really seem to love both the movie and the show. Their tongues are firmly in their cheeks druing the commentary (Adam West's views on Bruce Wayne alone are worth the price of admission), but you will learn about the production and such secrets as:
Why did ABC tear down the Batcave so quickly after cancellation?
What did Burt Ward really think about the BatCycle?
How and why did Lee Meriweather get to play Catwoman?
Why did Adam and Burt have to spend two hours each week getting oxygen at the Fox infirmary?
The team at Fox had a lot of love for this movie and it shows. Buy this DVD and get Fox to release some series episodes with Adam, Burt, Julie Newmar (Catwoman) and Frank Gorshin (Riddler)doing commentary!

Who knew that the campy 1960s' take on the dark superhero Batman would age so well? 39 years later, "Batman: The Movie" still is wholly enjoyable even for the most adrent Batman fan.

The plot of the film is paperthin. Batman (Adam West) and his sidekick, Robin (Burt Ward), are out to thwart the four most dangerous villians in Gotham: Catwoman (Lee Meriwehter), The Joker (Cesar Romero), The Penguin (Burgess Meredith) and The Riddler (Frank Gorshin, who recently left us, sadly) from taking over Gotham. To lure Batman into a trap, they kidnap Batman's secret identity, Bruce Wayne. This is more or less all the plot there is. There's also somehing about destroying people with a dehyrdator, but other than that, there's no real plot. And that's the film's charm.

It's a great piece of 1960s' nostalgia. The "holy (insert random word or phrase here), Batman" schtick is still hilarious, and the cast is clearly enjoying themselves. The extras for the dvd are surpisingly enjoyable. The commentary is awesome and the other extras deliver, but it's the movie that is really worth watching.

I bought this for my 3 year old son but it turns out i enjoy it almost as much as he does. Almost.
I remember watching this as a kid and I never realized how corny it was. Untill now. Yikes! I haven't laughed so hard at a movie in years. This film is funnier than than our best comedies. How can one not burst out in tears as batman is savagely attacked by a rubber shark? Check out his face as he grimaces in pain as the foam rubber teeth clamp down. And then theres the morality. Its good to know that even though drinkers may be riff-raff according to Robin, Batman still considers them human beings. And worth saving. Even the 'Human flotsam' near the end of the film is worth saving. And check out the deep blue sea in the submarine scenes. Whats that in the backround? Is the very horizon rippling before my eyes? Is it a rift in time! Or is it a screen painted with clouds and seaguls gently billowing from a stage fan! It just goes on and on. Poor sets, cheesy diologue coupled with cheesy delivery of cheesy diologue, props to make ILM green with envy. This movie makes those Godzilla movies look like big blockbuster bonanzas.
But all that corn wouldnt make a cornfield without Adam West and Burt Ward. How could a casting be so perfect? These two bring a sincerity to the roles. They somehow say ther lines with straight faces and are into their roles. This isnt a joke to them. its business. At the time anyway. The commentary track is amusing as the two laugh their way through the film with the rest of us. truly, this is a rare film that can be enjoyed by young and old alike. Harmless fun.

I'm old enough to recall the 1966 previews, aired on ABC, for a mid-season replacement series based on the longstanding comic hero, "Batman". The trailer just hinted at what the show was about: a masked crime fighter, driving a souped-up car unlike anything coming out of Detroit, and a mystique that served to pique interest in the series.

But, when the show hit, it hit BIG! Wednesday and Thursday nights were its domain, having hold on the 7:30 - 8:00 time period for two of its three years aired.

This disc is the film adaptation of the series, made during the first year hiatus, as explained by stars Adam West and Burt Ward in the DVD's commentary. The movie features the same supporting cast, as did the series (Neil Hamilton as "Commissioner Gordon," Stafford Repp as "Chief O'Hara," and Alan Napier as devoted manservant "Alfred"). Also rounding out the cast are frequent "guest villains" Frank Gorshin ("The Riddler"), Caesar Romero ("The Joker"), Burgess Meredith ("The Penguin") and new "Catwoman" Lee Meriweather, who replaced Julie Newmar, unavailable due to previous theatrical commitments.

The movie also has the series' trademark comic book action "sounds" ("POW!" "BANG!" "ZOWIE!" et. al.), the gaudy colors (brought to life in vivid Technicolor), the crazy sound effects, and the tongue-in-cheek dialogue and winks that made the show so cool.

Speaking of the color, I couldn't help but be taken as to how great the set pieces look, even those "recycled" from other shows filmed on the Fox lot. As one whose household didn't get a color set until after the show's end, this DVD allows me to see what I had been missing. Granted, I did have the View Master reel set of the show but it was just an "appetizer" to how "Batman" really looked on screen.
