Batman Begins Reviews
Score: A (VERY GOOD)!!!
Christian Bale plays Bruce/Batman as a dull, slow-witted man with a bit of a speech impediment or mouth problem -- I can't tell -- or, maybe, it's Bale himself who has some sort of speaking impediment or mouth problem. In the comics Batman is highly intelligent but that certainly doesn't come across in this movie.
Anyway, this movie was alright -- you couldn't tell from this film that the next movie, The Dark Knight, would be a steaming pile of something-1,000,000-times-worse-than-crap-and-vomit-and-cancer-blended-together.
Morgan Freeman plays the token black guy who is a sidekick to the white lead character, which is a cliche in almost all TV shows and movies these days.
Christian Bale's performance, I feel, gets too much backlash. Yeah, he has a gravelly voice (especially in the sequels), but I feel like people didn't get it. Don't get me wrong, I'll joke about it any day, but it makes sense as to why he has that voice. With Michael Keaton, he still sounded like Michael Keaton when he was Batman. Even the legendary Kevin Conroy (with his Batman from the Arkham games being my favorite Batman EVER) still sounds like Kevin Conroy when he was Batman. When Christian Bale plays Batman, he does something that no Batman before him did: make his voice unrecognizable. Think about it, he does not sound like Christian Bale when he's playing Batman, he sounds like someone else. If Batman's goal is to make his voice unrecognizable, then he fully succeeded.
In the end, I love this movie. It might be my least favorite of the trilogy, but Batman Begins still gets a:
é bem feita, com roteiro bem desenvolvido.
