Batman

Batman is packed with action, clever sight gags, interesting complications and goes all out on bat with batmania: batplane, batboat, batcycle, etc. etc. Humor is stretched to the limit, color is comic-strip sharp and script retrieves every trick from the highly popular teleseries' oatbag, adding a few more sophisticated touches.

It’s nearly impossible to attempt to relate plot. Suffice to say that it’s Batman and Robin against his four arch-enemies, Catwoman, The Joker, The Penguin and The Riddler. Quartet have united and are out to take over the world. They elaborately plot the dynamic duo’s death again and again but in every instance duo escape by the skin of their tights.

The acting is uniformly impressively improbable. The intense innocent enthusiasm of Cesar Romero, Burgess Meredith and Frank Gorshin as the three criminals is balanced against the innocent calm of Adam West and Burt Ward, Batman and Robin respectively.
