Batman Begins Reviews
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 one million 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 sinks his teeth into the role and we get the best Bruce Wayne/Batman we have had on the big screen. The gadgets all seem realistic and Bale's performance in Both roles anchors the character in a believable setting.
Very well directed and a terrific supporting cast all add up to the best Batman movie since the 80s!
