Jesus, what a comeback for the dark knight. It's so satisfying on every level, from plot to characterisation, from the tone of the film to the fast and furious action. I thank Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale for bringing the truest to material Batman on to the big screen. Hopefully other studio's may take note of what WB's have done too, by completely re-inventing the Batman franchise. It wouldn't be a bad idea for the Jaw's and Alien franchise's to re-imagine themselves.
I must especially mention the cast of Batman Begins, which ranges from the likes of Bale to Cillian Murphy. Not one big player is on bad form, and yes, i think Katie Holmes as Rachel did a fine job as there was a convincing chemistry between herself and Bale's Bruce Wayne. Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Micheal Caine.. They all deliver great performances and only enhance the believability of the picture.
One of the best summer blockbuster's ever, and it certainly won't be bettered for 2005.
