Batkid Begins Reviews
If I could change anything throughout this movie, there would be nothing to fix. This really opens up our perspective to feeling like a child again and brings pure happiness to everyone. Batkid is a movie which everyone should see and be recognized for humanitarian reasons like this.
Another tweak is that the documentary interviewed a lot of people but not the people that mattered most to Miles, the parents. They only interviewed during the introduction and the conclusion of the documentary. This adjustment would have made the audience understand more about Miles instead of Batkid. We got to see miles happy about being batman but would have been good to understand how he felt about the whole day
In every good documentary there is always things that could be changed. With the interviews I feel like that they could've interviewed Miles a lot more and asked him about his experience and how he felt when it happened. They promoted platforms like FaceBook and Twitter a lot with showing their posts and tweets.
The documentary Batkid is about a little Boy named Miles Scott who has cancer. There is a program called the "Make A Wish Foundation," and they give kids with a life threatening disease the ability to meet someone or do something that not everyone can do, like meet a famous person or become a professional football player for the day. Miles chose to be a superhero. He loves batman more than any other superhero, so they knew batman was the right superhero for him to be. Patricia, a member of the Make a Wish Foundation, was put on the case of making Miles' dream come true. However, while Patricia was setting up the surprise, Miles was still fighting with chemotherapy. Every time Patricia would talk to someone that would help her out and make Miles' surprise more special, they would immediately help and offer free things for miles. Everyone at this event had a smile on their face no matter what at all times. The documentary made everyone extremely happy. During the event, the video showed everyone celebrating and having a good time. The documentary shows people being brought tougher. This documentary was overall very positive for the people that watched it, and most importantly, Miles.
While the event was great and had a very powerful message, the documentary didn't show Miles' family enough. They gave them some very brief scenes in the Documentary. Mrs. Scott Said in the beginning of the Documentary that this would be their first vacation as a family in a really long time. However, they were never seen tougher in the documentary. There also was no struggle, and everything went their way. Because of this, I can conclude that the documentary was bias. Also, they started the documentary off with comic transitions and then decided to stop and then add it in the end. This showed that the documentary was very inconsistent. The documentary was very inspiring, but there were some negative parts in the way that the documentary was portrayed.
has leukemia and the people at The Make a Wish Foundation helped miles make his dream
come true, by making him batman for a day. The documentary was however very informative
about the subject on Batkid. Most of the documentary was very positive. They interviewed
people like Hans Zimmer, people from twitter who can add more credibility . They interviewed
the director(Patricia)of the make a wish foundation. She helped create the whole scene, she
basically made that whole day like a movie. I think the only thing about the documentary was
that they didn't interview the parents and miles as much they should have.
So overall, we got a lot of insight from outside people, which makes for a better understanding of how everything came into place. Throughout the film during the day, there was happy, upbeat music. I personally feel like that helped to give the right vibe in the film. It added joy to the film. Overall, the stuff they added in the film, including the interviews and happy music, was overall a success.
There were great film tactics used in the film. I really liked how they filmed, and how they got down to Miles' level when filming him sometimes. That really let us see what he was seeing from his point of view. Also, the director really made it a point to move the camera over all of the people. From this, we really got the sense of just how many people there were at this event. At each little "event" throughout the day, the camera got the brief idea of each event. It wasn't like 20 minutes at each event on camera, it was short and sweet and got the point across. But, something I enjoyed a lot was when they followed the cars around the town, and at times got into the car with them to show that point of view. I really liked seeing the points of views throughout the film. Mostly, I really enjoyed seeing the inclusion of Miles' constant happiness throughout the day. I personally feel that the point of the film was to show his happiness and joy for this day, and we really did get to see how happy it made him. One thing that I did not necessarily like in the film, was that there was a lot of build up until the actual day. It did not get to day fast enough, even though it included all of the right things in the start. Like I said, throughout the day, they followed each mini event just enough, but I feel that the overall film was a little too long. Overall, the film did include a lot of good techniques to show the build up to the day, and to show how the day went. I would give this film a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
I really enjoyed it
