Max Eckhardt (portrayed by William Hootkins) is a corrupt police detective in Tim Burton's Batman film. He regularly took bribes from crime boss Carl Grissom and he wasn't convinced of the existence of Batman until seeing him during a raid at the Axis Chemical Plant.

Eckhardt was informed by Grissom that Jack Napier was cleaning out Axis and he mobilized a squad of police officers to raid the plant and kill the mobsters. When Commissioner Gordon arrived to take charge, Eckhardt tried to make a discreet exit, but Napier spotted the lieutenant and shot him in the chest, killing him.
