Crazy Credits

Then end credit sequence features Batman doing the "Batusi", which he did in the pilot episode for the 1966 TV series. Catwoman also does her own "Catusi". The dance names are references to a popular dance of the 1960s, "The Watusi". The format of the sequence is also similar to the end sequences of many of the 60s beach movies starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello, although the dances were performed by Buster Keaton and his go-go girlfriend, Bunny.

The Bright Knight
10 October 2016 | by charliesonnyraySee all my reviews

In a climate where it feels like Batman is always trying to be grim, dark, brooding and epic; it feels like a breath of fresh air when someone says "Hey remember the 60's Batman? Wasn't that fun! Let's do something like that!" I watched that old 60's movie all the time when I was a kid and I still get a kick out of it. While I haven't watched a lot of the old series, from what I have gathered this movie mimics it perfectly. The crazy gadgets, the silly alliterations, the kooky villains, and even the fact that they add the word "bat" to everything Batman creates. However, it does have a few dull spots for me and it feels like some of the ahem "action" sequences go on a bit too long. However, I think we need to measure a film by what it's trying to do and how well it executes it despite how it makes you feel. And since this movie is obviously trying to homage the old show as well as be it's own thing, Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders does a great job! It has an interesting story, fun characters and some great dialogue. If you wanna see a new spin on the classic Adam West Batman, then look no further!
