Batman the greatest superhero ever. I'm a Batman fan. Comics, cartoons, you name it. I've been reading Batman comics for close to 40 years and even though I'm excited when a movie comes out I'm sadly disappointed in most cases. For everything a movie gets right, they get 10 things wrong. Some are good films but Batman only gets 20min of screen time. And some have little to no action. So here in my opinion are the top 5 Batman films. And no I'm not counting any of the animated films. That's a different list.
5) Superman v Batman. First off this movie is horrible. Just awful. But Ben Affleck was an amazing Batman and the warehouse scene where he saves Martha Kent is the most accurate portrayal of Batman in a film to date. For that reason it makes this list. It's been nearly two years since Superman's (Henry Cavill) colossal battle with Zod (Michael Shannon) devastated the city of Metropolis. The loss of life and collateral damage left many feeling angry and helpless, including crime-fighting billionaire Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). Convinced that Superman is now a threat to humanity, Batman embarks on a personal vendetta to end his reign on Earth, while the conniving Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) launches his own crusade against the Man of Steel.
4) Batman 1989: It may lack action, and suffer from ruining the origin but Keaton was good and the Batmobile was awsome. Having witnessed his parents' brutal murder as a child, millionaire philanthropist Bruce Wayne (Michael Keaton) fights crime in Gotham City disguised as Batman, a costumed hero who strikes fear into the hearts of villains. But when a deformed madman who calls himself "The Joker" (Jack Nicholson) seizes control of Gotham's criminal underworld, Batman must face his most ruthless nemesis ever while protecting both his identity and his love interest, reporter Vicki Vale (Kim Basinger).
3) Batman & Robin: Campy and dumb, but unlike a lot of Batman films it's action packed. A bit too much going on, but overall it's fun. Batman (George Clooney) and Robin (Chris O'Donnell) try to prevent the evil pair of Mr Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman) from freezing the town. While doing so, they also try hard to continue their partnership.
2) Batman Forever: I dont care what anyone says. This is fun, action packed, and has a great cast. Batman (Val Kilmer) faces off against two foes: the schizophrenic, horribly scarred former District Attorney Harvey Dent, aka Two-Face (Tommy Lee Jones), and the Riddler (Jim Carrey), a disgruntled ex-Wayne Enterprises inventor seeking revenge against his former employer by unleashing his brain-sucking weapon on Gotham City's residents. As the caped crusader also deals with tortured memories of his parents' murder, he has a new romance, with psychologist Chase Meridian (Nicole Kidman).
1) Batman 1966: Adam West is still the real Batman, and this is number one on my list. Kaaapowie! Holy feature film, Batman ... one based on the tongue-in-cheek, campy 1960's television series. Watch Batman (Adam West) and Robin (Burt Ward) battle sharks, Catwoman, The Joker and The Riddler on the big screen. Can they try to prevent the bad guys from taking over the world? With a wham! and a pow! and a zip! ... our heroes just might win.
