Batman: The Movie

 (1966)

Batman: The Movie Blu-ray delivers stunning video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

From the height of the television show's popularity, this full-length movie features all four of Batman (Adam West) and Robin's (Burt Ward) most dastardly and cunning adversaries: the Penguin (Burgess Meredith), the Joker (Cesar Romero), the Riddler (Frank Gorshin), and the Catwoman (Lee Meriwether), joining forces to take over the world thanks to a De-Hydrator that turns people into piles of dust. The dynamic duo pull out all the stops, with a BIFF! and a KA-POW!, to stop the bad guys.

For more about Batman: The Movie and the Batman: The Movie Blu-ray release, see Batman: The Movie Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Batman: The Movie Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Holy Hallucination, Batman! 20th Century Fox presents Batman: The Movie on Blu-ray in a marvelous-for-a-42-year-old-film 1080p, 1.85:1 framed transfer. This film retains its natural grain structure that is ever-present over the image and adds to the campy cinematic charm of the film. Various stock footage shots are scattered throughout the image, and they, too, appear excessively grainy and decidedly unpolished, but that's the way stock footage should look. Background details appear soft throughout the entirety of the picture. The higher resolution of Blu-ray brings out all of the details in the costumes, both the good and the bad, including some questionable stitching, cheap materials, and what appears to be a press-on Bat logo on Batman's chest. In chapter seven, viewers can even see what seems to be a helicopter rotor on the top of the frame, obviously captured while filming the shot from above. Some special effects shots don't hold up well in 1080p, particularly evidenced by the plainly obviously haloing seen around the "guinea pigs" in chapter 18, or that the horizon as seen in chapter 28 is clearly a painted wall on the inside of a soundstage, but no worries -- it all adds to the silliness of the movie. The print exhibits the occasional speckle and mar, but Fox has assembled a mostly pristine, clean, and perfectly cinematic-in-appearance print. Flesh tones are generally accurate in nature, and black levels are solid with only a hint of gray about them. If this movie is anything other than pure cheese, it is abundantly colorful. Colors are marvelously bright and accentuate the camp feel of the movie drastically. Batman's gray and blue looks nice, but pales in comparison to the Boy Wonder's red, green, and yellow outfit or the Joker's green and pink garb. Batman: The Movie is a cornucopia of color, and this Blu-ray edition brings it out as never before. Kudos to Fox for once again providing a disc true to the source, with all its original elements seemingly intact and allowing us to enjoy the movie in a true theatrical style.


Batman: The Movie Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Batman: The Movie comes to Blu-ray in all it's sonic goodness, presented with a lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack, and accompanied by the film's mono presentation as well. The 5.1 surround mix offers a pleasing enough experience, but the elements don't quite lend themselves to what would today be considered 4.5 or 5 blue "B" material. The highs in the soundtrack play out as a bit harsh, but the midrange and the lows are excellent. Dialogue sometimes gets a bit muffled under the music, and I noted several instances where it seemed to drop drastically in volume from one syllable to the next, and recover in the subsequent shot. There are some decent discrete effects and fine imaging in select scenes. Generally, fine lows are heard and felt, particularly during the Bat Boat launch and subsequent ride in chapter seven (the same place you can see the rotors atop the frame). The film's score is loud and engrossing, filling the front channels with 60s-era sonic goodness. The surrounds don't receive a very hefty workout, but they are put to use on occasion. Various special effects are oftentimes loud, and sometimes obnoxiously so. The soundtrack itself is rather loud, and I found myself fiddling with the volume control on my remote at least a dozen times. The explosion of the bomb in chapter 19 is perhaps the best use of low frequency effects heard in this movie, and it is one of the high points of the track. Considering the source, the 5.1 mix is a solid effort, and fans should be pleased to have both this mix and the original mono soundtrack available on this disc.
