Audience Reviews for Batman and Robin
The final few seconds of episode's cliffhanger was usually rewritten for the opening of the next chapter in. Hey, these were meant to be seen a week apart - not all in one sitting! Not bad for the constraints of the time.
I didn't think it was as good as the 1943 Batman serial, but it's still entertaining. There aren't as many fun moments, and the fights get a bit repetitive. The Wizard is an interesting villain, but not too memorable. The ending is a bit confusing and rushed.
I think this serial is not better or worse than the first. Both serials lack what really makes Batman great, but at least this one lacks the propaganda filled Anti-Japanese element...it just has a shitty villain. The Wizard is a lame guy in a cloak. The cliffhangers are lame with terrible resolutions...but there is something entertaining about old serials, even the bad ones.
