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.

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.

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]
| Original Score: 3/4

It's goofy, cornball charm sure wears a lot better than the last two "serious" Batman flicks.
| Original Score: 3/5

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