Animation-wise, this is a beautiful movie. I was worried how a straight-to-disc movie would look on the big screen, but I think this honestly could have been a regular theatrical release— the images are bold, beautiful and deserve to be seen on the largest screen possible. The likenesses of the classic actors have been captured brilliantly, the animation is smooth, and the artstyle is gorgeous. Gotham city manages to look like the Gotham of the classic TV show, but has that art-deco look DC's animated productions are known for. That the movie is animated also allows the story to do wonderful, insane things that are far beyond what the budget or special effects of the show could do in live action, but still feel true to the kind of things that would happen if the original production had the resources.
Finally, the voice actors. Everyone is great! You can definitely hear the age in Adam West and Julie Newmar's voice (Burt Ward sounds the same as ever!), but everyone brings energy and heart to the table. The deadpan delivery of absurd dialogue that made the original so endearing is fully intact and makes for some excellent jokes. The non-returning cast do a great job imitating the original actors, and Wally Wingert in paticular is dead-on as the Riddler.
Overall, this is a smart, beautiful, fun movie that will remind you of why we love classic Batman so much. This is a way more entertaining and engaging film than either of Batman's live action efforts this year. I've been rough on DC this year, but they really knocked this one out of the park.
Right from the opening credits, which cleverly intertwine the old 66 Batman television show with historic Batman comic book covers, one can immediately tell this animated film will not disappoint. The movie at its core is brilliant, using witty dialog and spectacular animation to entertain the viewer from start to finish. There are tons of Easter Eggs throughout that will satisfy the appetite of longtime fans. The Batcave’s decor is a great mix of Batman comics through the years and the tv show for which the film is based on. All items are woven together quite nicely. The story itself is not complex, but the manor it’s presented extremely creative.
The voice acting is a nice mix of the classic actors themselves (which include Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar) along with others, which do a great job with the iconic characters.
The true shining moment of this movie is the animation itself, which is pure eye candy! I’m amazed how incredible the lighting and colors burst on my HD screen. Why can’t all DC Animated films be this engaging?
I highly recommend Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders!
