Credible, emotive, volatile !! Nelson Riddles score is excellent, and some worthwhile performances from a very distinctive series. Probably one of the best film adaptations of the Batman story

This franchise's humor, upbeat music, and campy fun make this movie and the series it was based on a ton of fun to watch.

A clasic of campy action

The first 10 minutes manages to show how the rest of the movie is going to be. A disappointment.

Not as good as the TV show. Some memorable moments, but overall ok at best

This is truly a poorly made movie, with phony and corny characters that delivers brutally awful results.

Inspired silliness. Don't try comparing this to The Dark Knight. It's in a totally different class.

Entertaining and ridiculous. Campy, colorful, and funny. Not a great movie by any stretch, but come on- exploding sharks? Labels on everything? Robin's typing?

BLAZINGLY over the top to the hilt!
Holy Technicolor, Batman!

Wildly Entertaining all the way - energetic, a colorful kaleidoscopic feast for the eyes featuring the best villains of the live-action 60s TV Series, and a fine tuned, incredibly consistent cast and crew.

The movie amps up beyond the TV Series with some surprisingly elegant cinematography and camera work.
Comic book genius.

No Batman movie since this one has been able to rival the campy shenanigans so consistently as here, although they have certainly tried.

Some really hilarious tongue in cheek surprises sprinkled throughout the script keep things hopping, and just when you think things are going to turn static -

POW! WHAMO!!

Here comes the fun.
If only there were Oscar Awards for keeping a straight face - I'm thoroughly impressed on however they did it.

Enjoy this, and relish every high camp moment.
And don't forget the Shark Repellent.


5 out of 5 spins in the Batmobile

I dare you to find a more camp movie and if you do please don't let me know as I don't think I could handle it, The movie is just pure silliness as the opening scene Batman gets bitten by a shark that tries to rip his leg off but luckily Batman has his Shark replant spray..... And it only gets more camper with anti penguin gas pills, Also when the world's leaders get turned into dust then accidentally mixed up Batman has his dust separator machine to save the day, Terrible acting, Effects and plot but it's loyal to the TV show which came out 34 years before I was born so I'm only basing this as a film on its own having only seen a few 60's episodes so maybe to some it will be better but I can guarantee it's one Batman film your kids won't want to watch but hey at least there wasn't any dancing scenes.

Fun and stupid in all of the right areas. This film is worth a watch if your a fan of the 60s TV show.

Everything you would hear about this movie is true; and what a hilarious, self-consciously wacky and purposefully ham-fisted movie it is!

Dans son genre, un merveilleux classique nanar

The worst movie of the 60s hands down.

If you've never seen the original television series, just by watching this one, you'll have a good idea of what it was. Fun, cheesy, but God is this long. At way over two hours it starts to become a slog. Just cut a good half hour out of it and you've got a fun little laugh, otherwise it could be a bit too sluggish.

Outstanding performance by Adam West. But you can tell the fighting is obviously fake. But still a great movie!

Timeless classic that made me cave in and buy the complete series

The cheesiness may be too much for some, but Batman: The Movie is still a hilariously over-the-top parody of 1940's movie serials with enough enjoyable silliness to overcome the fact that it's essentially an extended episode of the show. Adam West's deliberately hammy performance is mostly fun to watch, and the film works best when it pokes fun at its own cheesiness. Overall, though certainly not without its cringeworthy moments, Batman: The Movie boasts enough inspired silliness to make up for these. 7/10.
