Sadly "Batman vs. Two-Face" is the last opportunity Bat-Fans will have to enjoy Adam West - who passed away earlier this year before this latest animated movie spin-off of the popular 1960s live action Batman television series - in his signature role as The Caped Crusader.
Because of his violent nature in the comic books - even in the 1960s Two-Face was extremely violent and his manner of choosing what course of action to take was more disturbing than the homicidal hi-jinks of The Joke - Two-Face never made it into the television series - though its interesting to note that while Killer Moth made it into the Bat-Girl pilot, Killer Moth never made it into the series either.
So it was only natural to cast William Shatner in the role as Harvey Dent, and he has a delicious slide into insanity when his face is burned in an accident involving Dr. Hugo Strange and an assistant who is a pre-Harley Quinn.
Along side Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar also repraise their roles as Dick Grayson/Robin and Selina Kyle/Catwoman,
There are several great moments for fans when: Aunt Harriet has great fun telling Bruce and Dick to go off fishing when the Bat-Signal is in the sky; Commissioner Gordon and Chief O'Hara admit at least out loud to themselves that they aren't kidding anyone about their capabilities as effective policemen, and Batman slaps Robin!
Batman also romances Catwoman!
King Tut also plays a key role in Two-Face's plans to kill Batman and Robin.
A GREAT animated movie that is true to the original television show!
We loved the first animated reunion so we bought this one without waiting for reviews.
It was fun, but the script was not as well written as the previous movie. The gags are there but not enough to fell like it was a step up from the last movie.
It could have been better but it seemed like Shatner played it very straight and somewhat phoned in the performance. This is something he could have and should have gone to town with all his goofy energy. Its still good. But the potential of the actors involved was alot greater than often the results. I suspect part of it was the way these things are made these days. With the actors doing their lines all individually in isolation from each other rather than working together dramatically. But while I think it could have been better, I'm tremendously happy with the film as it stands.
They are brief cameos by Dr. Hugo Strange and (most unexpectedly) proto-Harley Quinn. As is usual, there is dancing at the end. They should have had Shatner sing to round out the weirdness, but they didn't.
Given the current state of the world, the goofy fun idealistic fun offered by Adam West & Company is as welcome a relief today as it was 50 years ago for many of the same reasons.
