Ho hum
This Crown International Picture is unusual in that unlike most of its drive in movies, this effort takes itself much more seriously than usual. Oh, there are a few humorous moments (unintentional as well as intentional), and the movie does deliver a few scenes that display T and A, but otherwise the movie is surprisingly sober. I don't immediately object to the fact the filmmakers took this project more seriously, but I object to the way they depicted this serious story. The main problem is that the movie moves much too slow for its own good; a little jolt would have liven things up considerably. Also, Adam West gives a pretty poor performance, and his character gets much of the focus. The Lou Rawles-sung title song is great, and the movie has an unexpected ending, but more likely than not you'll drift to sleep long before the end credits start unfolding.
