It’s not about the hero

OK so I watched The new Batman movie, for the second time, and I still did not like it. That’s all for todays post… Just kidding.  But, seriously the new Batman movie is not that good. I watched the movie with two of my sons, Kyle and Connor and they loved it, keep in mind Kyle is 14 and Connor is 7 (yes I know the movie is rather violent for a 7-year-old, so know role model of the year award for me),  I was pleased that they, despite the poor acting and campy script, were enjoying themselves and within all the garbage that was the Batman dialogue there was a gem of a quote.

“A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy’s shoulders, to let him know the world hadn’t ended.” — Bruce Wayne/Batman

Those were the words that Bruce Wayne spoke, while dressed as Batman to commissioner Gordon and, despite the movies very poor cinematic quality, those were some great words for these two young men and this one old one to hear. We may not have a cool costume and some really neat toys, but we can all do our best to help each other and that makes our actions heroic. See it’s really not about the hero at all but his or her actions.
