Film Corner With Barry Pokevest...

Bat-Nev 12a

With Barry Pokevest

Ah yes, it's Barry here! I've been asked to do a review of this summer's blockbuster 'Bat-Nev'. And boy what a film this was..if you haven't seen it yet at your local cinema, then I assume you just don't want to.

This film has put the 'Bat' into 'battering ram' which is what the film does to your senses from the first moment our hero gets into the new vamped up Batmobile.

It's a case of Holy Something or another in this extravaganza. I've been told not to give too much of the plot away, so this will be relatively spoiler free.....

Bat-Nev/ Bruce Wang, played by Neville Cheestring is called in by Commissioner Bennett to investigate a string of robberies in Temple Meads. The only clues - a mysterious riddle, a joke and a penguin bar.

Leading the double life as a millionaire train spotter, Wang has to dig deep into the criminal underworld to seek out who's responsible whilst fighting off love interest from the delecatable Ethel Spriggett.

There is a scene where Bat-Nev jumps onto a subway train and somehow collects the number, before breaking into the train and kicking The Joker senseless.

Oops, shouldn't have told you that.

The jaw dropping finale set in space was a huge gamble, but it paid off, and you'd never see that one coming! Again, perhaps I should have not mentioned that bit.

I'd best go before I ruin it for all.

Barry's Verdict: A dark, brooding action film, with rolling stock. 9/10

Batman Logo: Warner Bros Pictures, Batman created by Bob Kane.
