    Synopsis


    Batman
    Tongue-in-cheek humor prevails in Batman, a witty homage to the Dynamic Duo's exaggerated exploits. The Caped Crusaders (Adam West and Burt Ward) are called in as a last resort when the criminal masterminds of the millennium team up to conquer Gotham City by turning the U.N. Security Council into dehydrated dust; among the villains are the Joker (Cesar Romero), Catwoman (Lee Meriwether), the Riddler (Frank Gorshin), and the Penguin (Burgess Meredith). The entire cast is excellent, particularly West and Ward, who distinguish themselves among a standout list with hilariously straight-faced performances. The film includes some truly memorable scenes, highlighted by a particularly tenacious shark with a vertical leap that would put Spud Webb to shame and a bomb on the waterfront with no place to explode (nuns, infants and lovebirds beware!). ~ Jeremy Beday, Rovi

      Tim Burton's BATMAN is for people who take comic books seriously. The Adam West BATMAN TV series and movie is for the rest of us. Batman is the role West was born to play. He delivers his lines with a seriousness and self-importance perhaps matched only by Steven Seagal--and Seagal isn't trying to be funny. I can understand how comic-book fans might dislike this movie. It does, after all, treat the whole Batman concept with jokey disrespect (though really, as another reviewer pointed out, it's an over-the-top parody of the old serials). However, for those of us who see the inherent silliness in the notion of a "millionaire playboy" dressing up in a bat suit to fight "supervillains," it's fun to watch a movie that sees it as well.

      In all honesty I am being asked to write a review about a movie that I watched weeks ago and have watched several movies since then including most of if not all of the other Batman movies plus others so I am trying to recall everything about this movie to give a good review but it is hard. I remember as a kid watching batman on tv I guess when I saw it available on Blu Ray at best buy I decided to grab it. I like the custom car. I like cat woman :) wish we all had nine lives lol.

      Alot of care was used when reissuing this movie release. The colors on the blu-ray are simply eye popping. Batman 66 was all about the cheese factor but at the time it was ground breaking. For a low price you get a lot for your money. Great commentary by Burt Ward and Adam West. Cool documentary on the making of the original Batmobile. This would make a great gift for a family with kids or for yourself and have a classic superhero night at home.

      This movie brings back fond memories from my childhood. As an adult, I finally understand why the campy nature of 1960's Batman was considered so funny. I am pleasantly surprised how well this movie looks on Blu-ray. I didn't expect a 42 year old movie to look so good. In fact, the clarity of the Blu-ray reveals the limitations of the shows budget and costume design. Colors really pop! I recommend this disc. If only the tv series was also available.

      Love me some Adam West Batman. This movie takes me back to my childhood, and watching all the old episodes of Batman on TV. This blu-ray is for the theatrical movie that accompanied those old episodes, and it looks great! Plus, it has some cool extra features including a short about the Batmobile, trivia, and several commentaries. For a small price, you can have some fun with the original Batman.

      This movie is hilarious. There is no way anyone can watch this with a straight face. Grab a case of beer, gather your friends, pop this disc in, and get ready for one of the best evenings ever. Technically, the disc has near flawless video and audio. The grainy stock reflects it's low budget '60s origin, and the audio is very dynamic. This movie got a better Blu-ray transfer than the Nolan Batman films.

      After watching episodes of this 60s TV series all remastered & hi-def, I was really taken aback. As silly as it all is, it really & truly lives in the comic book world with its intensely bright colors & ham-fisted, tongue-in-cheek plots & dialogue. So naturally I upgraded my DVD of this ludicrous movie to the Blu-ray. The price is low & the entertainment level high!

      Fun movie. I like all of the various versions of Batman, it there was something about the Adam West version. He seemed to be drawn from the old Line Ranger mold. So square he was cool. T orally LOVE the George's Harris Batmobile. Still wonder how long it took to get the white makeup off of Cesar Romero's mustache, since he refused to shave it to play the Joker.
