Tales of heroes and movies were made for one another. No other genre out there is better suited to tell these types of stories than movies. Movie production studios are able to spend millions upon millions of dollars on such flicks, and the presentations that are put out there for hero movies has made the genre so popular among those in Hollywood. The reason why so many superhero movies are produced each and every year these days is simple enough: Those movies generate a ton of revenue because we, as movie goers, eat them up regardless of the heroes featured in those pieces.

As with anything, not all movies about iconic heroes can be gems. You are inevitably going to come upon a stinker from time to time. Not all of these films, as you will see, have to revolve around mythological superhero figures that you were once introduced to via comic books or when you were a young child. One of these heroes is maybe the most iconic figure in the genre of sports movies, while another is a man who actually lived and breathed during his time, a sports hero beyond most and a man who unfortunately had his story told in one forgettable film.

Just about everything with this overly-campy movie is terrible, and that includes the iconic heroes featured in the film. George Clooney is a lot of things, but “Batman” never was nor ever will be one of them. Robin is annoying to the point that you find yourself rooting against him by the time the second half of the movie rolls around. Even the introduction of Batgirl is underwhelming. This movie was more about cashing in on a roster of recognizable actors than it was about portraying the stories of heroes, and the result is one of the worst superhero movies ever created.
