Along with the live-action movie and RETURN OF THE CAPED CRUSADERS, this makes for a nice nice little trilogy, not to mention a fitting tribute to Adam West. BATMAN VS TWO-FACE has all the sorts of gags you’ve come to expect from West’s tenure as the Caped Crusader. You see an “Abandoned Sign Factory” sign over the sight of a fight scene and Two-Face (William Shatner) recovers from surgery at the Sisters of Perpetual Irony Hospital. At one point Batman asks Robin (Burt Ward), “This isn’t an appropriate way to blow off steam – you should have joined a male basketball league!”. Shatner of course gets his courtroom scene, but doesn’t quite go full-on Denny Crane (shame). It even references that slapping meme along the way. They do miss out on a potentially more interesting twist than the one they actually go for, but the animation and vocal performances are superb throughout. SSP

I'm not paid to write about film - I do it because I love it. Favourite filmmakers include Bong Joon-ho, Danny Boyle, the Coen Brothers, Nicolas Winding Refn, Clio Barnard, Steven Spielberg, Guillermo del Toro, Paul Verhoeven, Taika Waititi and Edgar Wright. All reviews and articles are original works written and owned by me. They represent one man's opinion, and I'm more than happy to engage in civilised debate if you disagree.
