Dreadful unwatchable movie version of the campy Batman television series popular in the 1960s.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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
