The latest Batman entry is good, but is it Christopher Nolan good? Let’s discuss.
The newest Batman has hit the block, featuring a Dark Knight even darker than Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight. The Batman is a noir detective story that respects what came before, while setting Robert Pattinson’s hero loose in a different kind of Gotham City.
Let’s rank The Batman against every live-action Batman movie, plus the colorful and frenetic animated The Lego Batman Movie. (Batman rules in any dimension.) Note: We haven’t included the Mask of the Phantasm, The Killing Joke or 2019’s Joker.
6. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)
What else did we expect from a movie that promised Godzilla vs. Kong? CGI, visual spectacle, poor character development and being very serious. Tick, tick, tick, tick.

5. Justice League (2017)
I genuinely feel happy this is lower than Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Having watched both within a couple of days, I could see why Joss Whedon wanted to slim down the huge cast of characters and complicated villain backstory for the 2017 theatrical cut. The price? A few lines of exposition here and there, such as, “A scout… from space? Like an alien army?” Sherlock Bruce got to say that one. Big cringe.

4. The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
Following The Dark Knight was never going to be an easy task, and The Dark Knight Rises sometimes feels like the victim of its own ambitions. Batman faces his most physically threatening foe in Tom Hardy’s Bane, but the movie also digs into the legacy of Bruce’s choices in previous films, not to mention a Gotham in dire crisis. It’s a lot for one film to juggle, and the plot and characters stumble at times. But the highlights here are Hans Zimmer’s powerful score and Bale’s commitment to the character’s mission. The Dark Knight Rises is ultimately a fitting conclusion to Nolan’s trilogy, even if it doesn’t top its predecessors.

3. The Lego Batman Movie (2017)
This movie rules.
The Lego Batman is, for my money, the funniest and best of the Lego movies. Will Arnett is perfectly cast, the songs are magnificent and the story has something of a heart, with genuine stakes. Dramatically underrated movie.
— Mark Serrels
2. The Batman (2022)
The sparkly vampire nailed it. Robert Pattinson might have been hiding in excellent indie movies for the past decade since Twilight, but his true talent as a broody, reclusive, Kurt Cobain-channeling Bruce Wayne is on show in the latest Batman escapade. Director and writer Matt Reeves respects all that came before while bringing his own fresh, noir detective story take on a rain-soaked Gotham City. While its final act lacked stakes, The Batman soars with vivid cinematography, memorable action pieces and a clearly defined, lived-in crime-gripped world. Aggressively stamp this into your retinas.

1. The Dark Knight (2008)
I’ve seen so many movies mimic the opening of The Dark Knight. The cool surge of the camera toward high-rise buildings, that jittery clock-ticking music giving you the same constant-climax anxiety of Dunkirk. The Dark Knight has got to be at the top of this list, because it has the best ever Joker and is more like a gritty crime thriller than a comic book movie. It also has a tragic plot point and — sorry — enough can’t be said about how effective tragedy can be in making a film stay with you. Flaunt, taunt and haunt.
