This movie, based on a comic book and TV show, is about Batman and Robin. When they find out The Riddler, Joker, Catwoman, The Penguin, and a band of pirates have joined forces, Batman and Robin go on adventure like no other. In this adventure they find out Catwoman is a spy. In action scenes and funny sequences Batman and Robin fulfill their adventure with the help of Albert, their helper.


My favorite part is at the end when Batman and Robin fight The Riddler, Joker, Catwoman, The Penguin, and the pirates in a sword fight and a punching fight on a boat because I like the action and the animated action words printed on the screen like  “BOOM”, “KAPOW”, “OUCH”, “KERPLOP”, and “SPLOSH”.

My favorite character is Robin, the boy wonder because I like his suit and when he is in action sequences because he is brave, he saves people and he is cool. He is my favorite Superhero and I even dressed up as Robin for fun adventures at home.

MPAA Raing: Rated PG

My rating is PG for mild violence and action scenes, romance, a bad word, and explosions. This is not as violent as the new Batman movies at all. This is appropriate for ages 5 and up. This may have too much action for some kids, parents judge for yourself.

    I loved this campy adventure of the dynamic duo. I loved the simple special effects and great music and sound that made action scenes pop! This film is a fun way to introduce young kids to these superheros since later Batman movies are not for little kids.

    Make quick capes for kids after the movie by attaching fabric or blanket to shirt for lots of post movie superhero adventures.

    It’s great that a movie that was made 44 years ago is still fun to watch in these days of super computerized special effects.
