The message of Batkid Begins is, to me, Cynics of the world? You lost.
November 11, 2015
I'm still not sure if it warranted a full length documentary, but [it] is a fine ode to Batman and the human condition.

If you have the opportunity to see Batkid, I encourage you to buy a ticket. It won't change our world. But it could change us. Then we can improve the world. Batman would like that.

"Begins" journeys into the heart of charity and community support, clearing away the ugliness of the world for 80 minutes to bask in the glow of what was intended to be a block-wide event that eventually snowballed into a global phenomenon.

There's a wealth of material to draw on, almost as if a documentary-to-be-named later was already on someone's mind. In any case, Nachman puts it all to good use, relaying the conception, planning, preparation and execution of the day.

Though it's easy to contrast "Batkid Begins" with "Dear Zachary" - tears of heartache replaced with tears of joy - both are about coming out of tragedy with a positive outlook for the future & rewarding the often thankless task of being a great parent.

If watching "Batkid Begins" doesn't move you, I seriously don't know what will. And who doesn't love a five-year-old superhero?

For one day, at least, the optimists among us could revel in the good-heartedness of people the world over.

The seams occasionally show, especially whenever the shy, overwhelmed Miles grows tired or reluctant - or whenever the easily defeated villains start to look like so many overstuffed dolls - but it's impossible to say "no" to this project.

There's plenty of space for cynicism in this bitter, cold world, but Batkid Begins makes a fine case for an authentically rare mass moment of everyone acting like a decent person.
