Batman: The Movie (1966)

Consensus: Batman: The Movie elevates camp to an art form -- and has a blast doing it, every gloriously tongue-in-cheek inch of the way.

Variety Staff

Batman is packed with action, clever sight gags, interesting complications and goes all out on bat with batmania: batplane, batboat, batcycle, etc. etc.

Cinema Crazed

For Bat enthusiasts, this is a gold mine, for everyone else? A passable cult film.

I'd choose Adam West's Batmobile over Michael Keaton's any day.

Not as good as Batman TV show, but still has endearing moments.

Even if it is a compromised version of the TV show, it's far, far better than nothing.

1960s flick won't appeal to today's kids.

1966! This started it all! The most awesome part is when someone is hit, an onomatopoeia shows up. I loved this OG Batman.

A nice piece of camp cinema that tends to be pushed under the rug by fans of the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy. Deliberately cheesy and filled with hilarious… More
