Jason, Bellville. 30 April 2010
Say I was in a restaurant, and I wanted to order the culinary equivalent of this movie. I'd order a ham and cheese sandwich, extra ham and extra cheese, with an extra-large side order of corn. And that is what this movie is all about: dumb, campy fun. The good guys are oh so wholesome, the villains are a bunch of eccentric caricatures, and the plot every bit as lightweight as you could expect from a sixties comic. But the weird part is even now, it all comes together perfectly as an amusing piece of entertainment. And I know this movie will have its detractors, especially in light of Chris Nolan's (exemplary, I'll admit) modern reinterpretation of The Dark Knight. And I'm equally aware that Adam West has nowhere near the acting chops of Christian Bale in portraying Bruce Wayne as a multifaceted character.
But let me ask you this. Did Christian Bale ever keep a can of shark repellant handy just in case the need would arise? Well, did he?
