Why the hate

This is Batman for kids… all the other live action Batman movies are not made with kids in mind and this is.. is campy OTT fun… if the kids want to watch a comic book movie for kids they should have fun with this.

Not appropriate for young children

This movie was recommended as appropriate for young children and so I started watching it with my kids (ages 12 and 9). They were both horrified with the violent scenes in the beginning of the movie (in the lab) and were exposed to a lot of coarse sexual inuendoes in this film. Even though it’s a 90’s production I still strongly recommend to wait with this one until at least the age of 13.

Too much violence
