Batman: Return Of The Caped Crusaders Reviews

February 14, 2019
Far and away, this is a light, easy, harmless, and amusing love letter to squeaky clean family-friendly entertainment of a bygone era.

After a year of dark and sad Batman movies, it was nice to break free from that and watch Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders.

If you're a fan of Batman - a complex, self-aware Batman that can be funny and dark, smart and utterly ridiculous, all at the same time - Caped Crusaders is a movie you simply cannot miss.

That said, the lack of a live action element and the transition to animation has allowed West's Batman to grow more bombastic, brilliant, and more brazenly silly than ever before

It's both a subtle jab at more dour versions of Batman in the mythology and acts as a stamp that marks West's version as a cunning and capable character.

I wish the film dove a little deeper into its subtext (the film teases the notion of other variations of Batman side-by-side with the Adam West version but doesn't go in that direction), but what's there is enjoyable and entertaining.

It felt so authentic to 60's Batman.

Of all the Batman movies that came out this year, it's the only one actually worth seeing.

It's not a continuation of the TV series that first brought Batman to our screens 50 years ago (nor the DC series, which occurs in the same universe), but it embodies the spirit that made the series so endearing over the years.

... this is a lark, a self-aware spoof that embraces the painful puns, alliterative exclamations, and deadpan delivery of the old show, right down to the Bat-gimmicks of the utility belt, with a plot that refuses to take itself seriously.

Fun, action-packed tale celebrates '60s TV version.

"Return of the Caped Crusaders" is the dose of camp we needed, even if I didn't think much of it.

There's a joy impossible to deny. It's crafted by a team that can hardly contain its adoration for the material. That love is so apparent it might win over a new generation.

A gleeful exercise in nostalgia, a fun and family-friendly Batman story in its own right, and a running commentary on the character's flexible interpretation.

Return of the Caped Crusaders is the Batman '66 sequel fans have been waiting decades to see.

Oh Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, what have you done? You were supposed to be a kitschy throwback to 50 years ago, a gleeful POW! in the face of a brooding Batfleck, but you're so much more.

A perfect piece worthy of collection that feels like a trip to the past but refreshing at the same time. [Full review in Spanish]

Return of the Caped Crusaders should give DC animation fans hope, and fits nicely with some of the best work they've done since they launched.
