The Top Ten

The Dark Knight
Heath Ledger's performance in this film was simply impeccable. I agree, The Dark Knight Rises did have a lot of plot-holes, for example how did Batman actually escape the pit? Along with Eckhart's performance, it was probably the best superhero flick I have seen so far. To people who haven't seen The Dark Knight, I strongly advise you to take a look inside this amazing storyline that is Christopher Nolan's.
Dark Knight Rises had a lot of plot holes. How did Bruce Wayne get to Gotham from the middle of the desert with no food, money, or transportation? The scriptwriter was too busy writing Man of Steel. But yeah, The Dark Knight is the best. Heath Ledger was the best villain in a movie ever.
None of the other Batman movies (not even Batman Begins) can compare to this masterpiece.

2The Dark Knight Rises
Excellent story. Perfect how the directors were able to keep Talia al Ghul under wraps, even though all Batman fans know about her, they were still able to make it a twist that she was the child of Ras al Ghul in the end.
Bloody amazing! Tom hardy does a great job as bane. The twist at the end with talia alghul is so cool! Awesome movie
Possibly the best movie I have ever seen

It's my second favourite superhero film, after the original Superman. So you can understand that it's my favourite Batman film of all time. It is a masterpiece.
everyone should see it, it is a masterpeice
A great old classic of Batman that should at least be in the top 10.

4Batman Begins
Ra's Al Ghul is one of the awesomest Batman villains ever, and done perfectly by Liam Neeson. Amazing origin story, great performance by Christian Bale. This was the start of what I believe is the greatest trilogy of all time.

Best origin story I've ever seen! Realistic, great acting, in depth and exciting.
An outstanding movie. The only Batman movie I have liked.

5Batman Returns
Underrated. Everybody hates how it was much darker than the original but look at what happened after this film. Btman Forever was nothing but a money-making scheme, and don't even get me started on Batman ^^ Robin.

Tim burton created a uniquely creative and brilliant movie.. But because I wasn't identical in tone to the original everybody assumed that it was bad... And that is completely unfair as this film is a masterpiece
I loved Burton's visuals. You felt like you were in a comic book. It was entertaining and dark, just how Batman is supposed to be. When I think of Batman, I think of how this film looked. That is what made the film. Keaton is also the best Batman of all time.

6Batman: Under the Red Hood
I loved this movie. My favorite characters were joker (because they made him evil and funny) and black mask (my personal favorite b-man villain). But why is the dark knight returns not on the list? There are two and both are incredible movies
Awesome movie, highly recommend it.
Way better that all of the old batman movies with val kilmer, Michael Keaton & George Clooney

7Batman Forever
Jim carrey rocks the riddler
Val Kilmer was by far the best batman!

8Batman - Mask of the Phantasm
How does nobody I talk to know about this film!?!?! I would argue that, even in the wake of The Dark Knight, this is the greatest film adaptation for Batman, and along with the series is the best adaptation of Batman on a screen.
Better than that the live action movie of batman that came out the same year.
I love the Dark Knight trigoly but this movie is the first Batman movie I ever saw at the age of 3, it is for me a real masterpiece

2 great way to end the joker, s crimes by shooting him
