Batman: The Movie

( 15 )

Overview

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.

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!.

    Some days, you just can't get rid of a bomb!

    Batman, Batman, Batman! Oh man, this movie was HILARIOUS. It's one of those movies that are so stupid, and so bad that they're actually GOOD.

    I used to watch the re-runs of the tv series when I was a kid in the 80s. It was so bad, but my sister and I didn't care. It was Batman and Robin, on the tv screen, kicking butt and taking names!

    The plot is actually great, and the situation serious (although not TOO serious--after all, it's the 60s Batman). The special effects aren't bad for its time, especially the laser gun on the Batboat. The rubber shark was hilariously bad, though. (Seems like each incarnation of Batman fights with a shark at least once. )

    The fights are also pretty decent, especially the final battle-- better than the Batamn tv series, actually. And the way Bruce constantly outwits Joker, Ridddler, Catwoman and Pengiun just proves once again that even this version of Batman can always win when he has time to plan.

    And of course, the bomb scene. That is, without a doubt, the best few moments in the entire movie. Batman running around with a bomb, not able to find a place to dump it, and the fuse that's taking forever to run out makes for one of the most hilarious movie scenes ever.

    Some days, you just cna't get rid of a bomb. And some days, you just can't help laughing your butt off at this so-bad-it's-good flick.

    TO THE BATCAVE!

    youll be laughing so hard you have to stop teh movie and watch the rest later.

    Now when the TV show was out I thought it was so stupid! Batman had no muscles and didn¿t fight! Well fight like I thought batman should. When I got older I bought this to just add to my collection and figured id try again...and I could not stop laughing! Didn¿t understand why more people are not talking about how funny this is! WATCH IT WITH FREINDS!!!

    FUNNIEST MOVIE EVER!!!

    I just watched this film for the first time. I am 19 and in college. This movie was completely amazing. We came to the conclusion that its really not a movie about Batman, but a film about insane people who think they are either super heroes or super villians. The memorable quotes in the movie are endless and the absurd answers to the riddles will have you on the floor in tears especially with how they totally except the theories and how they are right about them! I'm so buying the dvd!!!
