The start of something great, but they were still getting some stuff figured out.

Everyone knows the backstory of batman, so should I even bother saying the plot? Batman Begins till this day, is still regarded as one of the best superhero origin stories to be released. It is without a doubt in the top 5. It stars Christian Bale, and is the first installment in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. When this was released, it took a refreshing look on the caped crusader, after Joel Schumahcer's take on the character. We all know how that went, unfortunately. Christian Bale's performance as Batman is by far the best in the franchise, and was a good start for the trilogy. Bruce Wane, travels to the east where Henri Ducard (Liam Neeson) teaches him martial arts so Wayne can help with the downfall of Gotham City. Involving an antagonist from the comics named Scarecrow (Cillian Murphy). This film was remarkable compared to some other Batman movies, and was a proper introduction to the trilogy.
Over all, Batman Begins was a very well-developed superhero origin story, and a good movie on it's own. 4/5 stars

This is one of the best and original superhero origin movies. It truly understands the intrinsic nature of Batman and delivers dark and exciting fun.

Probably the best Batman origin story put on film, the first in Christopher Nolan's trilogy is epic in it's simplicity and style. Christian Bale as Batman is fantastic, along with Michael Caine as Alfred. The entire cast is phenomenal, and the movie's script is a perfect introduction to quite possibly the greatest superhero trilogy of all time.

The best Batman reboot of all time yet!! Christopher Nolan directs the film perfectly. I give his movie a 95%

Despite the incredulous exceptionalism of the Wayne family's philanthropic exploits, Batmans Begins remains uncontested as the best superhero origins film ever.

For any true fan of the Detective Comics Featuring Batman world, this is purely beautiful.

Dull, pretensious, lame villains, poor editing, and an incredibly miscast Christian Bale as Batman and Bruce Wayne. To sum up all that is wrong with this film is how poorly executed and acted the Wayne parents death scene is.

Where as all the previous depictions of Batman (the campy TV series, Tim Burton's darker interpretations & even Schumacher's aweful revamps) drew their inspirations from the ever evolving 'comics', Christopher Nolan has focused on the graphic novels - namely 'Batman: Year One' & 'The Long Halloween' - & in so doing has created the two greatest superhero movies outside of the original 1978 Superman film.
The level of preparation & work that went into the development of the story, the characters, the designs - coupled with a brilliant script, cast, effects & set-pieces shows up exactly what all the Marvel movies are sadly lacking. This films investigation of the origins of Batman is expertly crafted by one of the best directors around at the moment, & the action is far superior to that produced recently by both Spielberg & Bay.

An amazing movie - at last we see an origins story for the caped crusader and Bale lives the role to perfection. Shows the emotional backstory of the Batman brilliantly. Nolan's thought process & film making is simply outstanding.

For a big budget super hero movie, there is something subtle about Batman Begins. The pacing is steady and the character transformation of Bruce Wayne in to Batman is given time to develop. The shots of the city and infrastructure of Gotham help paint the picture of the fantasy world while offering foreshadowing of events to come later in the movie, and later on in the series. The bad guys are also more subtle than in other super hero movies. The psychedellic elements of The Scarecrow character add a touch of horror to a franchise that is often considered dark, but in different ways.

Batman gets a detailed origin heavily based on the comics. A very fun ride while staying true to the classic stories that preceded the film.

Batman Begins is one of the best Superhero origin story in a movie, with stunning action and a awesome lead performance by Christian Bale.

This is simply one of the best superhero movies of all time. It's directed superbly, the script is great, and the action sequences were well filmed. Out of all the actors that have played Batman, Christian Bale is definitely the best. While Michael Keaton and Val Kilmer were also very good, Bale really fits the role. I really enjoy films that serve as effective origin stories for well-known superheroes, and Batman Begins is one of them.
