my rankings are:
1.) bale - best batman overall. you can see his effort and commitment
2.) keaton -slightly behind bale but redefined batman franchise
3.) kilmer - because clooney and west sucked
4.) west - because clooney messed it up.
5.) clooney - had better potential than both west and kilmer because of his voice, height, stature but found a way to make batman an average dude. his acting was not that much and he clearly did not care. at least kilmer tried to immitate keaton and west to be fair was the first batman and has nobody to look up to or compared with.
