Sorry, I Am Too Young For The Silent Movies
25 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

I don't like doing negative reviews of Batman as this series is so close to my heart but I am not one of those "every-episode-is-wonderful-fans", I tell it like it is! I have a healthy respect for old Hollywood films but I have no interest in silent films which makes this episode a bit of a struggle. I love The Riddler and rank the Riddler-pilot as the best episode of the series. They say you must always blame the writer but I wonder if director Rondeau is partly to blame?

After Batman, Rondeau directed two of the lesser episodes of Fox's Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea series - Nightmare and Death Clock - and Death In Slow Motion would be a clever title (or bitchy title) for his two Voyage shows as well!

The good news is that part two of this story is a lot better...so don't give up if you are like me and a bit too young for the silent movie age!
