Batman - The Movie

Batman - The Movie
When you mention “Batman”, most people think of the movies starring Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and/or Christian Bale. But the caped crusader’s first film included the cast of the 1960’s TV show starring Adam West as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Burt Ward as Robin/Dick Grayson. In this take on the superhero duo, Batman and Robin must fight the United Underworld made up of the Joker, the Penguin, the Riddler and Catwoman when the super criminals wreak havoc by using their dehydrator on those who stand in their way, including world leaders. Can Batman and Robin stop them and save the day? Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching 1966’s “Batman – The Movie”.

· Batman is on a ladder, dangling from the Batcopter. Although Batman doesn’t move, the distance between him and the bottom of the ladder changes between different views of him.

· At one point during the movie, Bruce Wayne is attacked by the United Underworld. Bruce swings and supposedly makes contact with the Penguin’s face but when he throws the punch, he actually misses the Penguin.

· During the movie, there are two separate occasions when the Joker fires a missile. The first time the missile fires, it flies to the right. Toward the end of the movie, another missile is fired. This time it travels towards the left. Take a good look at this scene and you’ll see that it’s the mirror opposite of the first one. Even the writing on the missile is backwards.

· CAUTION: May Contain Spoilers! The United Underworld dehydrates the nine members of the Security Council. At the end of the movie, Batman and Robin save the day by setting up the equipment and re-hydrating them. However, in the following view, the re-hydrating equipment is nowhere to be seen.

“Batman – The Movie” (1966) stars Adam West, Burt Ward, Lee Meriwether, Cesar Romero, Burgess Meredith, Frank Gorshin, Alan Napier and Neil Hamilton. It runs 105 minutes and is Unrated.
