Extras: The first disc of the set had some trailers and a short photogallery with similar extras included on the second disc.
Paul Chaplin as "Jo-kerr"
Audio/Video Quality: Bat Fuck: Dark Knight was presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Nicholas Steele for Blue Bird Films. The production was released in standard definition using the usual MPEG-2 codec and 480 resolution, some of the darker scenes among the very sharpest I've seen from any porn production company to date. That said, some of the scenes looked like they relied too heavily on one or two cameras, some effects not coming across as well due to the surroundings (like the strip club orgy) or the manner in which they were shot but most of the ladies looked very nice indeed, their sexual hijinks caught fairly well considering the sheer amount of action taking place in the various orgy scenes. I saw few compression artifacts and the video bitrate seemed higher than normal with my spot checking of the double disc providing numbers around the 6.8 Mbps (give or take). There were no watermarks and the special effects were on the cheesy side, essentially perfect for this type of show. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English with a 48 kHz sampling rate and 192 Kbps audio bitrate, a lot of attention being paid to properly mixing the musical score with the ambient noises and dialogue, very little (if any) looping used to fill in the gaps. Given how poorly audio is typically treated in porn, this was a breath of fresh air by comparison, the veritable team working on the production earning some accolades on all technical aspects of the show.
Kristina Rose and Blake Rose with Nick Manning
Body of Review: Batman XXX was one of the first recent attempts at parodying superheroes, the field littered with attempts years ago but never achieving the kind of success this one has already had thanks to a keen eye for detail in taking aspects of the campy television show and pornifying it. Well, this being the end of September, it was no surprise to me that director Nicholas Steele and Blue Bird Films tried to go one better on the mythic masked man concept, coming out with Bat Fuck: Dark Knight. This time, it wasn't the TV show that was pornified but an amalgamation of the various Batman movies, though leaning heavily on the Christian Bale/Heath Ledger release that was the mainstream roller coaster of the year when released. This time, the company altered the names of the characters and locations just a touch, Nick Manning finally getting to play the lead character opposing Paul Chaplin's "Jo-kerr" and a host of other comic book villains. Of note was the multitude of sets, scores of characters, and emphasis on orgies (most of the scenes were orgies here, love them or hate them), and the kind of tossup between the camp of the pre-Christian Bale movies versus "The Dark Knight" darkness so many fans have come to appreciate. Personally, I thought Paul Chaplin stole every scene he was in when the cast wasn't boning like crazy, Tory Lane acting every bit as silly as Uma Thurman did in "Batman & Robin", and the rest of the cast a true mix of acting talent until the clothing came off and the sexual trysts began, but Nick "dropping loads" Manning was better than expected in this darker version of the tale too.
Gangster Orgy #1
-- sponsored by --
The company website described the movie like this: "The overrun, bleak dystopia of Gothard City has one stalwart protect: The Bat. In his iconic cape and cowl, Billionaire Bruce defends the city from the scourge of crime. His greatest weapon: his monster cock. He shows off his fantastic prowess by engaging in a thrilling threesome with Blake & Kristina Rose, who are more than willing to do some quick cum swapping. The Jo-kerr steals Poisen Ivy's latest sex potion to unleash on the unsuspecting population, but not before Ivy (as played by Tory Lane) unleashes her huge tits and takes a scene-stealing rimjob. The Clown Prince of Crime burns a path of destruction; fighting and fucking his way through the underworld. No one is safe from his carnal fury. Bobbi Starr's hairy bush feels the wrath of Jo-kerr's malevolent dick. Cindy Behr gets a poker chip insertion in her pussy. Rio Lee receives a facial to remember. Only the dashing Bat and his trusty assistants Robina (Krissy Lynn) & Bat Chick (Isis Love) can save Gothard's citizens from Jo-kerr's evil scheme.
This titanic struggle comes to a head in an earth-shattering 12 person orgy featuring Madelyn Marie in the kinky latex of Katwoman, Brynn Tyler riding the sybian and Isis Love squirting all over the place! The screen can't contain all the hot sex in BATFXXX!" Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Madelyn Marie and Alexa Nicole with Mark Davis and Pike Nelson
Scene One: Kristina Rose and Blake Rose were up first, the ladies saved rescued by Nick Manning. They were appreciative and while he usually saves his abilities for special occasions, he made an exception this time thanks to a large set of tits staring him in the face. Their flight attendant outfits came off quickly by Nick kept on his dark knight attire, the trio servicing each other orally with the ladies spending a lot of time sucking him off. There was some taste testing and a decent amount of vaginal penetration, Kristina's ass looking really great hanging out of the lingerie or positioned on her friend's face. Nick was a capable partner for them too, holding off on busting a nut of genetic juice until the ladies sucked his balls dry while using some hand to gland action. He "dropped some bat fuck loads" this time, an amusing take on his usual spiel, the ladies spending some time cleaning his spunk off of each other orally.
The Stripper Orgy
Scene Two: Paul Chaplin, Rio Lee, Anna Lovato, Delta White, Cindy Behr, Jasmine Black, Stacey Saran, Kaia Kane, Demetri XXX, Dirty Dog, Jeff, and Tony James were up next in a gangster orgy including a lot more action than I am about to described in detail. The ladies wore a range of exciting apparel including a super heroine costume, naughty nurse, waitress gear, slutty bad girl clothes, and the like while the main man himself, Paul, showed that his version of the infamous Joker was a sexual force to be reckoned with too. There was a lot of lesbian work, cock sucking, pussy munching, and active vaginal riding by the ladies, a few too many of them looking right at the camera a lot but otherwise generating a lot of heat with their enthusiastic exploits. Wads of population pudding landed on pussy, faces, and tits, the replay value of the scene as high as any of the other orgies.
Jamey Janes and Andy San Dimas
Scene Three: Madelyn "Katwoman" Marie, Alexa "Kitka" Nicole, Mark "Mayor" Davis, and Pike "Commissioner Gordon" Nelson, were up next as the ladies schemed to catch the hero using some special bait. Madelyn looked great in the skintight latex outfit, her curvy figure certainly good enough for me to ignore her acting. The slit cut in her pussy area allowed Mark to go down on her as she squatted before him, Pike quite happy to enjoy Alexa's comforting body too. They swapped partners at times and both ladies provided passionate romps, the active riding and taste testing enough to keep me happy throughout the scene until the ladies received their facials and basked in the afterglow of their seed draining acts.
Gangster Orgy #2
Scene Four: Paul Chaplin, Madelyn Marie, Jazy Berlin, Brooke Haven, Brooke Banner, Dylan Ryder, Mason Moore, Madison Fox, Tommy Gunn, Aaron Wilcox, Will Powers, and Danny Mountain, were up next in a strip club orgy. The ladies were writhing on the stage when Jo-kerr (Paul) stormed in, Madelyn not interested in his attempts at levity so much as his cock. A few whiffs of the sexual stimulant and the entire club was bouncing, the ladies sucking cocks while the men pawed them all over, and a variety of vaginal pounding penetration positions. None of the cast was represented well as an individual but the ladies sucked cock aggressively and most of them actively rode the rods, the camera work reminding me of how tough it is to properly shoot an orgy. Still, it was fun and Madelyn looked great in her outfit as she had her head down in a pussy while her ass was in the air. Mason also stood out from the pack as she gyrated on a pole beside one of her hot buddies, the sheer variety of footage looking a little clumsily edited (or shot for that matter) but containing the raw energy needed to keep my attention. Most of the many loads of semen landed on the faces of the ladies, no chance for them to lick each other clean as the story crept up yet again.
Poison Ivy's Orgy
Scene Five: Jamey Janes, Andy San Dimas, and Mr. Pete, were up next, his role as "Two Face" needing both a devil and an angel to satisfy his carnal needs. His makeup looked more like Freddy Kruger from the "Nightmare on Elm Street" series but for all intents and purposes, he was just a meat puppet this time, the ladies dropping to their knees to suck him off. The ladies shared him orally before taking turns actively riding his pecker, Andy coming across as over the top during the vaginal penetration but more active than Jamey too. The ladies licked each other from time to time and stayed active with him and each other most of the time, their lack of personal chemistry noted even as they displayed some decent levels of energy. The dirty talk enhanced the action too, both gals getting a dose of his dick liquid while kneeling one last time underneath his sack.
The Lab Orgy
Scene Six: Bobbi Starr, Carolyn Reese, Krissy Lynn, Dani Jensen, Rio Lee, Madelyn Marie, Paul Chaplin, Derrick Pierce, Chris Johnson, and Danny Wylde, were up next in another gangster orgy. Jo-kerr killed mob boss David Perry, earning the undying appreciation of many in the world, setting the henchmen upon one another around the time that Katwoman and Robina (okay, as stated previously, liberties were taken; my appreciation for Krissy's tits enough to prefer her over a ritualistic adherence to the original material). A few whiffs of love gas and the entire bunch were all over each other too, Bobbi standing out from her peers though all involved sucked cock or titty just fine. The vaginal riding was a mixed bag this time though, none of the cocks big enough to cause concern yet few impaling themselves like Carolyn was so regularly doing. Most of the spunk landed on faces from the men jerking off, the ladies acting as if it was needed.
The Final Orgy
Scene Seven: Tory "Poison Ivy" Lane, Scarlett Fay, Mina, Krissy Lynn, Nick "Batfuck" Manning, Johnny Castle, TJ Cummings, and Barry Scott, were up next in what I refer to as the Poison Ivy orgy. The garden setting started off with a fight but the sprayed can of desire mist worked their wonders yet again, the cast making love, not war. Tory went crazy as the goofy Poison Ivy, hamming it up much like Uma Thurman did 13 years ago in the mainstream version of the character, her helpers far less aggressive orally but providing nice eye candy other than Krissy. Nick tore into Krissy and Tory couldn't get enough of Barry initially, moving to swap partners to get herself a little love from her arch nemesis. There was relatively little lesbian action this scene, the men taking care of one woman at a time for the most part and some additional choking (while not a common occurrence, it was not extremely rare in the movie), the ending pop shots landing on abdomens, faces, and a crotch.
Some Special Effects
Scene Eight: Isis "Bat Chick" Love, Persia Pele, Breanne Benson, Billy Glide, Alex Gonz, and Tony DeSergio, were up next in a lab orgy, the spray working its wonders another time. The lab was somewhat too sterile looking to work well as a set but in the universe of pornification, anything goes, including most of their clothing to allow for better fucking. The ladies left on their sexy lingerie and the guys stayed busy banging away at their pussies, the amount of oral loving relatively minimal but intermittent, Persia getting a crotch pop like Isis did even while Breanne took it to the face for the team.
Scene Nine: Jenny Hendrix, Brynn Tyler, Nika Noire, Yurizan Beltran, Katie Kox, Madelyn Marie, Keni Styles, Seth Gamble, Jerry, Paul Chaplin, Isis Love, and Krissy Lynn, were up in the final orgy and sex scene, Jo-kerr making his move on his hostages and the heroes. With the gas dispersed method of his spray now perfected for large scale dissemination, he took time to enjoy some heated oral and vaginal love from friend and foe alike, Nick moving from Isis to Madelyn and decidedly more lesbian tricks offered up. The semen flew towards faces after some active riding and snacking, Jenny getting a chest pop but the spent cast now at the mercy of their enemy.
Summary: Bat Fuck: Dark Knight by director Nicholas Steele for Blue Bird Films had all sorts of plot holes to match the sex holes so eagerly deployed in the many orgies of the show, the combining of various attributes from differing movies probably the worst idea of the lot but sexually it was interesting since so much was taking place and a few stand out performers in their non sexual performances such as Paul Chaplin as Jo-kerr and Nick Manning as "Batfuck" making it well worth leaving the remote control alone. I might question the extensive use of orgies and the lack of solid extras but the movie itself clocked in at close to four hours long on the double disc set, the sheer quantity of fuck for the buck enough to merit attention even if the quality could have used some polishing up. For me then, the movie merited a rating of Highly Recommended, surpassing any of the company's efforts to date (easily blowing "Bonny & Clide" away though I look forward to seeing "Babe Runners" since the included trailer seemed to be as lot of fun). In short, while Bat Fuck: Dark Knight was a less literal version of the caped crusader's antics than has been offered up by the competition this year, it will likely appeal to those who find the darker version more sexually appealing, some tweaking of the company pacing in their movies likely to result in a great deal of additional accolades. If you enjoy feature porn and orgies, you just cannot go wrong picking up a copy for your collection.
