Storyline

The archvillains of The United Underworld - The Catwoman, The Joker, The Riddler and The Penguin - combine forces to dispose of Batman and Robin as they launch their fantastic plot to control the entire world. From his submarine, Penguin and his cohorts hijack a yacht containing a superdehydrator, which can extract all moisture from humans and reduce them to particles of dust. The evildoers turn the 9 Security Council members in the United World Building into 9 vials of multicolored crystals! Batman and Robin track the villains in their Batboat and use Batcharge missles to force the sub to surface. Written by Aaron Handy III <ah07@gnofn.org>

What great special effects!
17 November 2003 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

If no one else has commented on the great effects, then i will. KABLAM! POW! BOOM! The effects were really funny and the evil villians teaming up together against batman and robin was a genius idea on the writers part! I always will and still do find robin cuter than batman. The riddler's jokes were really tacky, but i know i never would've came up with those jokes in a million years! i'll just stick with the jokes from the laffy taffy wrappers! (LOL) The movie was great and i strongly recommend it if you want to see batmans funny side and see the caped crusader attempt to battle all the evil forces of gotham city! (A- B+)
