Holy camp site, Batman! After a fabulously successful season on TV, the campy comic book adventure hit the big screen, complete with painful puns, outrageous supervillains, and fights punctuated with word balloons sporting such onomatopoeic syllables as "Pow!," "Thud!," and "Blammo!" Adam West's wooden Batman is the cowled vigilante alter ego of straight-arrow millionaire Bruce Wayne and Bruce Ward's Robin (a.k.a. Dick Grayson, Bruce's young collegiate protégé) his overeager sidekick in hot pants. Together they battle an unholy alliance of Gotham City's greatest criminals: the Joker (Cesar Romero, whooping up a storm), the Riddler (giggling Frank Gorshin), the Penguin (cackling Burgess Meredith), and the purr-fectly sexy Catwoman (Lee Meriwether slinking in a skin-tight black bodysuit). The criminals are, naturally, out to conquer the world, but with a little help from their unending supply of utility belt devices (bat shark repellent, anyone?), our dynamic duo thwarts their nefarious plans at every turn. Since the TV show ran under 30 minutes an episode (with commercials), the 105-minute film runs a little thin--a little camp goes a long way--but fans of the small-screen show will enjoy the spoofing tone throughout. Leslie H. Martinson directs Lorenzo Semple's screenplay like a big-budget TV episode minus the cliffhanger endings. --Sean Axmaker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I think a few of the above reviews are really missing the point regarding Batman - The Movie. Is it campy? Of course it is! Is it cheap? Yes! Why were these particular people cast? If you don't know, read on and learn.
Batman, starring Adam West and Burt Ward, was a TV series which ran for like 3 years, twice a week, from 1966 to 1968. After the 1st pretty successful season on American TV, a movie was produced, using the same actors, screenwriters, sets, music, etc. The reason the movie was made was to pre-sell the TV series to the European market. They wanted to make a feature length movie using the same talent and if the movie did well in Europe, they'd be able to sell the series. That's the whole reason this movie was made. Obviously, the producers couldn't make the movie using other actors, cars, etc. It had to fit into the existing very campy, very funny TV series.
The movie is slow at times, the acting IS over the top (most all TV acting was over the top in the 60s and 70s), the plot silly. None of this stuff really matters, because of (and one reviewer has already pointed this out) the sincerity of Adam West and Burt Ward in their roles as the Caped Crusaders. This isn't something they do to keep from spending time with Aunt Harriet. This was deadly serious to them and they showed it. To me the funniest sequence in the movie is the scene where Batman is trying to get a cartoon-type bomb away from various groups of wandering people before the bomb blows up. He runs all around the docks where the scene is set, holding what is obviously a prop bomb with a sparkler attached to it for a burning fuse. He runs to this side of the dock, there's a small group of Salvation Army people, to that side, young lovers, or a family of ducks in the water, etc.

Although I hadn't seen this camp classic in many years, my memories of it were less than stellar. I recall not having quite as much fun with its hilariously preposterous gadgets & situations and over-the-top acting as others apparently had (if you doubt it, just read a few of the four- and five-star customer reviews for this bad boy). But despite these woes, I decided to grab a copy of the Batman: The Movie special edition DVD when I found it at a price I just couldn't pass up (hint: it cost me almost as much as I'd pay if I had rented it from the local Blockbuster). I then headed on home, threw the platter into my player, and...
...took a look at the Special Features, starting with the interview featurette starring Adam 'Batman' West and Burt 'Robin' Ward. Both guys recall their memories making the flick, and throw in a few interesting anecdotes here and there. And as one might expect, they get a bit pretentious and start spoutin' stuff about how the show and the movie "changed the face" of entertainment, and a bunch of other making-things-look-way-more-important-than-they-actually-were nonsense. 'Course, seein' as how the classic Batman TV show is pretty much the only thing these guys ever really had goin' for them career-wise, the philosophy lesson from these ComiCon mainstays ain't all that much of a surprise to me...
The second featurette shows the designer of the Batmobile (actually, five of 'em were made for the show & the movie) in front of his famed creation talking about the conception, design, and production of one of Hollywood's most famous cars. It ain't too bad to sit through if you can get over how sad the host looks as he discusses the finer points of his immortal automobile (i.e. all the gadgets & gizmos, etc.).

Indeed, pure Batman from the 60's. The special features are very interesting. You can even have a virtual tour of the Batmobile like if you were beside it.

Enjoy!

Heres where it bagan for Batman and Robin! Altho for useless info to write, Batman was always original a comic book strip and a few things had been made, this is whats considered the original Batman! Its where it shot to fame!
This movie was originally set to kick of the TV series of Batman but due to some errors, it was released after the first season of the TV show airing! Which turned out to be a good thing!
Altho the newer generation who have never seen the TV series would probably turn there nose up at this film because its nothing like what Batman has been seen as since Tim Burtons 1988 Batman that was more a darker movie then this lite slap stick comedy! and further the kids these days are probably even more familuer with the cartoons and things and wont have a clue what is happnin with this completly diffrent Batman and Robin!
This movie starring Adam West as Batman and Burt Ward as Robin is sure to make you laugh at the silly and goofy comedy that made this original Batman tale so fun!
Its filled with gags and corney jokes but sure will make you chuckle, and for this great price you wont be disapointed! As all the villains of Gothem City have united to try and take over the world , its up to Batman and Robin to save the day!
The plot ventures through an inventor named Commodore Shmidlap who has a new invention that can deydrate people and unfortunalty the crooks The Joker, Catwoman, The Penguin and the Riddler have joined forces and kidnapped Shmidlap and stolen his invention! Holey Smokes Batman!!!
Batman and Robin are soon on the case for the rescue and there wacky capers take them on an adventure with silly action and fun for all with gadgets and devices that are so far fecthed that there unbeleiably funny!
