      Prev Next

      Sweet and winning and makes us all feel a little better about the world in which we live

      Full Review | Oct 31, 2019

      Nachman understands the true value and meaning of Miles' story, and with luck Batkid Begins will keep his dream alive for years to come.

      Full Review | Original Score: 7/10 | Mar 13, 2019

      The message of Batkid Begins is, to me, Cynics of the world? You lost.

      Full Review | Aug 10, 2017

      I'm still not sure if it warranted a full length documentary, but [it] is a fine ode to Batman and the human condition.

      Full Review | Nov 11, 2015

      With great cheer and good spirit, Batkid Begins tells a true story that will restore your faith in humanity.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4 | Oct 5, 2015

      It tells the story in a powerful and uncomplicated way.

      Full Review | Original Score: A- | Sep 2, 2015

      Cynics can carp. Let them. But don't be one of them.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Jul 23, 2015

      It's refreshing to see a film that's completely lacking in cynicism.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5 | Jul 20, 2015

      Nachman, for her part, diligently tries not to lose sight of the child at the center of it all.

      Full Review | Jul 16, 2015

      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.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4 | Jul 16, 2015

      "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.

      Full Review | Original Score: B | Jul 15, 2015

      Get ready to have your spirits lifted by Batkid Begins, the most heartwarming film you're going to see this year.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Jul 13, 2015

      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.

      Full Review | Original Score: B+ | Jul 12, 2015

      This is the kind stuff that you cannot make up.

      Full Review | Original Score: B | Jul 11, 2015

      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.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4 | Jul 10, 2015

      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?

      Full Review | Jul 10, 2015

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

      Full Review | Jul 10, 2015

      Everybody got a bit of childhood back, not because of what they got but because of what they gave.

      Full Review | Original Score: B+ | Jul 9, 2015

      Batkid Begins has the feel of a barn-raising gone global.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Jul 9, 2015

      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.
