The arch-villains of the United Underworld - the Joker, the Penguin, the Riddler and the Catwoman - 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 dehydrator, which can extract all moisture from humans and reduce them to particles of dust. The evildoers turn the nine Security Council members in the United World Building into nine vials of multicolored crystals! Batman and Robin track the villains in their Batboat and use Batcharge missiles to force the submarine to surface. Written by

Scenes shot in the arch-criminals' headquarters lair were filmed in a dutch angle. This was intentional and was meant to show that the four villains (Catwoman, Penguin, Joker, and Riddler) were crooked. See more »
In the scene where Batman and Robin are trapped on the buoy with a strong magnet pinning their utility-belts to the buoy: After the third torpedo explodes (after hitting a dolphin) we next see Batman and Robin back in their Batboat and escaping, but how did they free themselves? There is no indication that the magnet had shut down (the buoy was never hit, nor did we see the penguin turn it off, or Batman using some Batdevice to shut it off). See more »

This movie will change your life (maybe, OK, maybe not, but hey, now that i have your attention): It is the most perfectly well done satire I have ever seen. If you appreciate film, watch this one. Adam West is a comic genius.
The script (obviously comprised by men smarter than we are led to believe in a room filled with contraband smoke) is a thing of Picasso-esque beauty. I am not a superhero connoiseur, but I do know that this movie is as fantastically POW WAM BANG WHAMMO as any superhero movie ever made. Do not ask yourself why the UN is guarded by a singular guard, or how Polaris missiles spell out riddles at the point of explosion, only ask yourself one question: Has there ever been any other film created where the all important phrase "Sometimes you just can't get rid of a bomb" is uttered so convincingly?
