Not as good as Batman TV show, but still has endearing moments.

For Bat enthusiasts, this is a gold mine, for everyone else? A passable cult film.

As a solo viewing experience, this is feeble indeed, but invite some friends over for a BYOB bash and its entertainment value rises substantially.

Even if it is a compromised version of the TV show, it's far, far better than nothing.

Fluffy, good-natured, endlessly quotable fun, just like you remember it.

Shot in the same campy style that characterized the TV show, all the cast members look like they are having a great time chewing up the scenery.

1960s flick won't appeal to today's kids.

Unlike other attempts at bringing these characters to life... the TV cast really captures the inherent insanity of the roles

Batman is packed with action, clever sight gags, interesting complications and goes all out on bat with batmania: batplane, batboat, batcycle, etc. etc.

I'd choose Adam West's Batmobile over Michael Keaton's any day.

...can we at least all agree that 'Da na na na na na na na...BAT MAN!' is one of the greatest superhero themes ever?

The delirious idiosyncracies of the '60s Batman are all on display...a pleasant-enough romp that's just a little too-distracted with its new toys. [Blu-Ray]

If you loved the series, the movie is what you would expect.

It's goofy, cornball charm sure wears a lot better than the last two "serious" Batman flicks.

For camp value only

Why do they always try to revamp Batman when they got it so right almost 40 years ago?
