Part remake, part reunion, this light-hearted spoof of the old 1960s Batman television series stars all of the original cast from the camp classic. When Adam West and Burt Ward discover that the famed Batmobile from their glory days on the show has been stolen, they leap back into action to apprehend the culprit. As they track down the thieves, in flashback they reveal what it was like to star in the show, meeting a few old friends - and enemies - along the way.

I cant praise this made for tv movie enough, its fantastic, not only for fans of the original BATMAN tv series but also lovers of nostalgia, biographical dramas and anyone with a sence of humour. Basically the premise of this drama is that Adam and Burt (playing themselves in the movie) are out to find the villain who has stolen the batmobile and during their time together they remember all about how the show came about, developed and finally ended, not to mention how they themselves were changed by the show. This reminiscing is done by the aid of flashbackss with a couple of actors playing the young Burt and Adam, and a lot of period detail. Its very cleverly done and fascinating viewing, not least because the chemistry is still there between Adam and Burt and they obviously had so much fun with this reunion special, it shines through on screen! There are so many in-jokes and Burt/Adam are such good sports, playing along with the jokes 100%.

Its also very informative, find out why Burts tights (or what was in them) caused so much controversy at the time, what exactly WAS in Batmans utility belt and why there was so much muttering about the relationship between Batman and the boy wonder. The actors playing the young Burt and Adam are fantastic, and its hard to think a better choice could have been made, most convincing. I recommend this DVD because it is so entertaining and is worth watching again and again, just seeing Adam do the batdance again is worth the money!!!

If you're a diehard fan you'll give it 4 or 5. I'm fond of the 60's series and that's what this film's approach is. Nobody's going to give Burt or Adam an oscar for their acting (then or here). Forget the plot and just enjoy the banter between the two stars, and a few of their old co-stars. There are also some fascinating dramatised(and well acted!) flashbacks to the actors' experiences of the making of the original Batman series. Fans will need to have this as part of their collection. I would just rent it!

A hugely enjoyable tv movie from several years ago. This features adam west and burt ward, the stars of the batman show from the 1960's, playing themselves, whilst on the track of a criminal who has stolen the batmobile used in the series. Hugely funny sequences follow as they play themselves trying to track the car down. Scenes are knowingly shot in the style of the original programme, and there's a voiceover of the kind that you'd get before a commerical break that only adam can hear.

Intercut with all this are scenes showing the making of the programme, with younger actors playing adam and burt from those days. These are interesting both as a look at the making of it, as they offer some fascinating trivia, and as a warts and all portrayal. They commendably don't shy away from adam west's womanising and other problems of the time.

You probably have to have seen the original series to fully appreciate this, given the style in which it's done, but if you have, it's a hugely entertaing trip down memory lane. The dvd offers a trailer and scene access and nothing much else in the way of extras, but it's the movie that makes it good.

West and Ward play themselves, in a film which combines dramatised events from their real-lives when they played the Dynamic Duo in the sixties, with a parallel plot where the Batmobile - now a retro-exhibit - is stolen by two of the actors who played villains in the original series (Frank Gorshin aka The Riddler and Julie Newmar aka Catwoman). West and Ward try to recover the Batmobile, pausing along the way to reflect on their years of stardom.

Their real-selves are played in the flashback scenes by Jack Brewer (West) and Jason Marsden (Ward). Brewer, though handsome, bears no resemblance to West, but Marsden is almost identical to the young Ward. Through this we learn the real and amusing story of how the two were chosen to be Batman and Robin, how Ward did more stunts than his stuntman (and spent more time in casualty as a result) and how their marriages suffered when opportunities for dalliances were thrust relentlessly upon them. No wonder that Batman experienced so many strange stirrings in his Utility Belt ...

West, now in his seventies, is still a fine looking man and seems comfortable at putting his glory days in humorous perspective. Ward is at first unrecognisable as the lithesome Boy Wonder, perhaps as the result of eating too many Bat Burgers over the years, though his voice is unmistakeable.

Lee Merriwether (another Catwoman) does a couple of brief cameo scenes and has aged more gracefully than Newmar who, it must be said, appears to have had several face-lifts too many. Frank Gorshin tries commendably to recreate the live-wire zaniness of his Riddler years, though is clearly very aged.

The extras are minimal, comprising text biographies and filmnotes. DVD quality excellent, with some good title and incidental music.

With the three series of the Batman television series seemingly never to come to DVD, this is about the close as we'll get to having Adam West and Burt Ward's Batman in our collections. Its quite funny, with Adam West playing a hilarious variation of himself (sort of like how he plays himself in Family Guy) and with some excellent guest starring appearances.
