When Batman and Robin receive a tip-off that Commodore Schmidlapp is in danger aboard his yacht, they plan a rescue mission. But the information was a set-up by four of the most powerful villains ever to roam the planet: The Joker, The Penguin, The Riddler and Catwoman...

Hooray! At long last one of the campest, awesome movies finally gets the DVD treatment it truly deserves. A nice scubbed-up print kicks this disc off on the right note, which is followed by an impressive array of Bat extras... There is a great commentary by Adam West and Burt Ward which gives some insight into the making of this cult movie. This commentary, like everything else on this disc is recorded in the style of the original camp movie.

There is also a great new 15 minute feature which shows West and Ward sharing some of their hilarious memories from the making of the series and the movie as well as a five minute look at the Batmobile with the original designer of one of the world's most recognisable automobiles. Finally there are a couple of sections on the disc that show a number of stills from behind the scenes of the movie (although word of warning the button to move on the images is the fast forward button not the play button as indicated)

Anyone with a sense of humour should rush out and purchase this DVD now. It will make a truly excellent addition to your DVD collection. Now all we need is for the original series to be released on DVD.
