Batman: The Movie carries the high camp absurdity of the 1960s TV show to gleeful new heights. Shark Repellent Batspray, costume-removing Batpoles, a contraption that dehydrates political figures into coloured powder, and endless childishly easy conundrums. Bringing the primary-coloured show to the big screen was a natural move, since sets, costume and casting were all in place. But what elevates the movie above the series? Is it the wonderful new toys--the Batcopter, Batboat and Batbike? Is it the OTT direction, taking the Dynamic Duo on location far more than usual? Or is it the electrifying one-upmanship between Burgess Meredith (Penguin), Cesar Romero (Joker), Frank Gorshin (Riddler) and Lee Meriwether (a new Catwoman since regular Julie Newmar was busy elsewhere)? As Commissioner Gordon says, "The sum of the angles of that rectangle is too monstrous to contemplate!" Really, the best of the movie's magic is to be found in the sheer glee Adam West and Burt Ward exhibit in playing for the big screen. This was the most exciting event in their careers. And it shows in their colourful, zestful performances.

On the DVD: Batman: The Movie on disc includes an affectionate commentary from the two stars ("Oh lookee!" says West repeatedly), after which the duo are heavily involved in the wealth of additional material, even recording dialogue for the interactive animated menus. Seeing them on screen in the 16-minute featurette might be a shock, though. In the restored 1.85:1 film print they look much better! Additionally there's a five-minute "Batmobile Revealed" featurette with designer George Barris, a trailer page with some very humorous inclusions and two large galleries of behind-the-scenes photos.--Paul Tonks

Plenty of Bat features of our comic strip heros!. In the film U get to see all the Dynamic Duos BatTastic Transport from the TV Series- Batmobile, Batcopter, Batbike & Batboat. Unfortunately Julie Newmar (Catwoman TV Series) was busy making Mackennas Gold allthough burgess meredith was also in that film he only had a small part. you get guest stars looking out of windows as dynamic duo walk up buildings. Gags, Jokes, Riddles!
Too the Batpoles
Atomic batteries to power, Turbines to Speed!..
The Series is overdue for been released
Please Release TV Series on DVD!..

It's difficult to add to the excellent reviews by Amazon and the other contributors, as they've summed it up so well!
The 1989 Batman movie had the Joker - and was very good. The follow up "Batman Returns" had the Penguin and Catwoman, and was pretty good too. The next one "Batman Forever" had the Riddler, but it wasn't up to much. And let's forget about the awful "Batman and Robin" one! This 1966 movie, however, has all these characters and has more entertainment value than all the more recent offerings put together.
Kids will love this movie, as will adults with an ironic sense of humour. There are so many laughs to be had, the characters are larger than life and it is quite evident that the actors are really enjoying it. With a few nods to the camera by Adam West as Batman, what we have here is the movie equivalent of a stage pantomime.
For me, the one scene that stands out is about an hour into the movie where Batman tries to dispose of a bomb. It's got to be one of the funniest scenes in cinematic history! But there are some wonderful throwaway gags that explain how Batman miraculously gets out of a sticky situation.
If you have a DVD player, this is a must-have DVD. There is a worthwhile commentary by Adam West and Burt Ward (Batman and Robin), stills galleries (some of the photos of the Riddler with a "circular saw - conveyabelt torture trap" appear to be from the TV series) and an interesting documentary. The presentation throughout is superb too. Absolutely flawless.
My only wish now is for the 120 episodes of the 1966-68 TV series to be released too! Maybe then we will finally get to see that conveyabelt of the Riddler in action!

can there be anything more entertaining that batman battling a clearly made of rubber fake-shark and shouting in staccato speech to robin "pass.. me.. the.. shark.. repellent.. bat.. spray" I'm in my (very) late 30s, my youngest son is 6 and we both love this film. no language, no violence, no gore, just good clean fun and entertainment.

The original 1966 Batman movie is, by far, one of the cheesiest and camp movies you'll ever watch. However, I don't intend to slate a film from the 60's that had kids excited and amazed - this is 2007 afterall. We love this film now, thankfully, because it is dated.
And by that I mean what? Who can not smile and grin at the sheer fun of this film! The fact that its so innocent makes us laugh now, but the bright colours and well-spoken people involved can only make you happy after a hard tiring day!
It would be silly to explain the plot - you've probably already got an idea of the structure involved! But present in the film, we see Adam West playing good ol' Batman, with an array of transportation, from his 'Bat-copter' to his 'Batmobile', not to mention the many other items he owns - all just standard things, made special by the fact they have 'Bat' in front of it. I may be mistaken... he does have a "Shark-Repellent-Bat Spray". Its just as well he doesn't spray it at himself then!
The best bit? Its not even worth questioning - West may come with some woppers, such as his truly viscious "You........CRIMINALS!", but the best scene was always going to be the funniest by todays standards. We see Batman and Robin in their Batcopter, flying over a boat. Batman releases his 'Bat-ladder' so he can try and board the boat. However, Robin rather foolishly lowers him too much, and so he goes waist-high into the sea - Cue a stiff looking model of a shark to be attatched to Adam West's leg, as he gets raised from the water. "Holy Sardines!" cries Robin, but the flustered Batman grunts, spits, stabs, and attempts to thump this shark. Cue once again, 'Shark-Repellent-Bat Spray'. And to top it all off, after a long spray on the shark, its blows up when it hits the water! Very handy indeed....

An excellent buy, in my opinion.
It's a warm-hearted parody of the Black Knight and the Boy Wonder, with four of the great villains (The Joker, The Penguin, Catwoman and The Riddler) thrown in as well.
It's extremely hard not to laugh, when Batman is attacked by a rubbershark and utilizes his handy Shark-repellant Batspray, as well as at the fact that everything Batman owns, is conveniently labelled.
Or when Batman, Robin and Gordon unravels the devlish plot of the four villains, using nothing but comicbookish quotes and a total absense of common logic.
The movie is almost too silly at one point (Batman runs into a mother with her baby, nuns and other friendly civillans when trying to dispose of a bomb, that never seems to run out of its' fuse; "Some days you just can't get rid of a bomb!"), but on the whole it's a great movie.
On top of this, it's a fairly cheap movie, so it'd be a shame to miss it.
