A Fitting Swan Song for Adam West's Caped Crusader

In the hearts of some, maybe even all, Batman fans, Adam West will always hold a cherished place. I remember as a kid tuning in to a few reruns of the series that had started just under two decades before I was born. For my money, Adam West will always be the best Batman. Despite the campiness around him, West's deadpan delivery was so perfect that he could convey his love for justice with a ridiculous eulogy for an "almost human porpoise" as much as Christian Bale could with an entire "It's not who I am under the mask" monologue.

Perhaps in direct response to that dark and gritty reboot, there's been renewed interest in the 60's series. The comic book series "Batman '66" imagines a continuation of the TV series that includes villains it never got around to, including psychedelic re-imaginings of characters that weren't even introduced until decades later. Last year's animated film "Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders" breathed new life into the concept by bringing in the voice talents of the West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar, with the rest of the familiar characters resurrected through loving imitations by modern impressionists. That movie not only was a pitch-perfect extension of the '66 series, but brilliant satirized just how much darker the portrayal of the "Dark Knight" has become ever since. Earlier this year, we lost our contrasting "Bright Knight" when Adam West passed away, but not before lending his voice to a sequel.

"Batman Vs. Two-Face" doesn't satirize like its predecessor, but fully embraces the original series' campiness, with one concession: the inclusion of a villain considered too dark and gritty for the series at the time. Acccording to legend, Clint Eastwood was all set to take on the role of Two-Face before studio execs thought he'd scare off young viewers and put the kibosh on it. In "Batman Vs. Two-Face", Professor Hugo Strange, another villain who never appeared on the TV series, is working on an "evil extractor" to rehabilitate Gotham's greatest criminals. He's aided by another now- popular villain, one not created until the early 90's, in a cameo role. Strange, naturally, is portrayed with an impersonation of the German mad scientist voice Peter Sellers perfected for "Dr. Strangelove, Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb." Unfortunately for Strange, his assistant, and Gotham City District Attorney Harvery Dent, Batman's greatest enemies have the ability to raise their evilness on command and, through their combined malevolent cackling, cause the devise to overload, splashing the D.A.'s face with the liquid manifestation of evil and transforming him physically and mentally into Two-Face.

The opening credits montage shows Batman and Robin waging war on Two-Face as if he were just another villain on the bi-weekly roster of the series. When we return to the film proper, Bruce Wayne has found a way to restore Dent's face as well as his law career. But when King Tut and Book Worm, two villains who existed solely in the universe of the TV series, pull off heists with all of the trademarks of Two-Face's plots, Batman and Robin have to try to figure out how Two-Face can co-exist with the seemingly cured Harvey. It's a mystery with a simple solution, but the movie's not about detective work: it's about revisiting a Gotham where the swinging 60's never ended, and where the police force exists only to toggle the Bat Signal on and off, because they wouldn't know how to bring a jaywalker to justice without the intervention of the Dynamic Duo.

Sorry, Clint, but William Shatner should have always been the first choice for Two-Face. Not only was he a familiar face on TV screens of that era, but no one else shared Adam West's love for the dramatic pause the way he does. He makes the menacing villain gel well with the campy universe, his distinctive cadence fits the squeaky-clean prosecutor, while he adds just a little bit of a growl to portray the darker aspects of the character. And there will never, ever be another Adam West. Only he could make a visit to the window of Catwoman's prison cell to share a kiss, read some poetry, and remind her how many months are left until her debt to society is paid seem so endearing.

Youthful ward Dick Grayson's maternal aunt gets giddy at how intimate Bruce and Dick seem, winking and nudging at rumors about the relationship that have persisted since the 60's, but she also gets giddy seeing Bruce and Harvey together, at one point all but pressing their faces together and telling them to start making out. Taking from other popular adaptations of the Two-Face character, Bruce and Harvey are portrayed as being old friends, in spite of the fact that the D.A. never even got a namedrop in the original series. It makes for a sort of love triangle between Bruce Wayne, Harvey Dent, and Dick Grayson, and pays off with a sweet little moment of Batman declaring just how rock solid his relationship with the Boy Wonder is.

Always leave 'em wanting more. It's sad for me to think of what might have been. If only someone had the brilliant idea of bringing Adam West and Burt Ward in to revisit the classic series in animated form earlier, we may have been able to witness the two squaring off against Poison Ivy or Scarecrow or Harley Quinn. But, as it is, this is as good of a sendoff as our Bright Knight could ever have asked for.

Rest in Peace Caped Crusader

We should feel very lucky to have 2 more depictions of the Caped Crusader 60's batman with Robin with their original voice actors, there will never be another person who can give that character life again. This movie was quite a way to go out to.

If you liked the original series, this is a movie you need to see.

Original fans of batman will remember his 60's series lacked two-face, but at the time there was a treatment for the character, it however was deemed to be too dark and graphic for the light hearted nature of the show at the time.

This movie while inspired by that treatment, was actually inspired more by other stories including Hugo Strange's story about unmasking batman's identity and selling it to the highest bidder.

The movie is filled with countless Easter eggs and classic villains. There is even an Easter egg with Hugo's assistant most comic fans will notice right off the top.

The film keeps the light hearted nature to heart and never goes too dark, but it isn't above poking fun of itself through modern cynicism at times much like the last animated adaption. Again what you are left with is a Batman story that feels like it could have been a series of episodes. This was a good year for animated batman releases.

The Best Adam West tribute

This movie was definitely a good end to Adam West career as Batman. Like my review of The Carpeted Crusader, you don't need to be a fan of the original Adam West projects to like this movie. In fact, I am glad that they managed to get William Shatner who was never in the original to be Two-Face in this movie. The rest of the voice actors were good as well.

Side Note: I think Dr. Quinnzel is hot in the movie.

I am also glad they included the sound effect words whenever they punched someone.

My questions still remain to be asked cheek my review from the previous one.

My favorite scene is the last battle with all the villains. In fact, this movie is much better than Batman and Harley Quinn (see my review).

If you are a fan of the original Batman with Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar then this movie and the one before it is definitely for you since they also have up to date animation and technology used.
