Batman: Return Of The Caped Crusaders (2016)




Critic Consensus: Adam West's groovy interpretation of the The Caped Crusader returns in a new medium, popping in the realm of animation with the irascible energy of an exclamation-accented onomatopoeia.

Movie Info

It's back to the 1960s as Batman and Robin spring into action when Gotham City is threatened by a quartet of Batman's most fiendish foes--Penguin, The Joker, Riddler and Catwoman. This time, the four Super-Villains have combined their wicked talents to hatch a plot so nefarious that the Dynamic Duo will need to go to outer space (and back) to foil their arch enemies and restore order in Gotham City. It's a truly fantastic adventure that will pit good against evil, good against good, evil against evil... and feature two words that exponentially raise the stakes for both sides: Replicator Ray. Holy Multiplication Tables!

Far and away, this is a light, easy, harmless, and amusing love letter to squeaky clean family-friendly entertainment of a bygone era.

After a year of dark and sad Batman movies, it was nice to break free from that and watch Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders.

If you're a fan of Batman - a complex, self-aware Batman that can be funny and dark, smart and utterly ridiculous, all at the same time - Caped Crusaders is a movie you simply cannot miss.

That said, the lack of a live action element and the transition to animation has allowed West's Batman to grow more bombastic, brilliant, and more brazenly silly than ever before

It's both a subtle jab at more dour versions of Batman in the mythology and acts as a stamp that marks West's version as a cunning and capable character.

I wish the film dove a little deeper into its subtext (the film teases the notion of other variations of Batman side-by-side with the Adam West version but doesn't go in that direction), but what's there is enjoyable and entertaining.

Audience Reviews for Batman: Return Of The Caped Crusaders


After Batman has got so dark and serious over the years in live action and animation it was nice to see the old 60's camp fest even if I hated just about everything about the old TV series and the terrible 1966 movie, But this was much better than them thanks to it being an animation film and the fact that it takes shots at the old TV show, It was great to know the remaining original cast were voicing it too, The story was pretty good even if it's still camp as ever, The animation was pretty good too, Fans of the original Adam West Batman will adore this so much and hey it might even get the younger generation to look into the old originals too but I'm not holding my breath.

We got no less than six official feature-length movies starting Batman, and the best of them is an animated rehash of the cheesy 1960's show, because that's just the kind of year 2016 is.
