Batkid Begins: Movie Review

c.jpgI came across another well written review stuck in my career journal. Warning- this movie is a happy tear jerker. So, as you snuggle up on your sofa with your Coca-Cola (with a heavy splash of rum and a twist of lime) and dish of gummy bears, don’t forget to grab the box of Kleenex.

Now, moving on to my review. Batkid Begins is a documentary that explores the outpouring of spontaneous support of the city of San Francisco and it’s Make-A-Wish foundation, and the positive influence of social media like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. (the statistics are astounding) for five-year-old Miles Scott (Batkid) nearing the end of his three-year treatment for leukemia. Miles dons the heavily-labored Dark Knight costume and is able to forget about the hand he was dealt as he answers calls for help from the police commissioner (SF police chief Greg Suhr), thwarts the crimes of Riddler and the Penguin, and saves a damsel in distress. He even rode in a Lamborghini-turned-Batmobile. This film will make you laugh and cry and think of the original 1966 Adam West television Batman.Have you seen this movie, what are your thoughts? Do you have any recommendation of what I should be watching?
