Batman Begins Reviews
When I first saw this movie, it was if I was in heaven. Put it this way, when you look back at Joel Schumacher's piece of crap Batman and Robin, and then look at this, it makes you feel all warm inside. An amazing reboot of a dead franchise, and arguably the best of Nolan's trilogy.
Score: 9/10 (Amazing).
Despite an arguable slow start in the first 30 minutes or so of the movie, it just keeps getting better, and Batman Begins delivers a memorable finale, distinctive characters, and a story that actually makes you feel something. Which is hard to do in a superhero flick.
Originally Written July 1, 2005--
A young Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) travels to the Far East, where he's trained in the martial arts by Henri Ducard (Liam Neeson), a member of the mysterious League of Shadows. When Ducard reveals the League's true purpose -- the complete destruction of Gotham City -- Wayne returns to Gotham intent on cleaning up the city without resorting to murder. With the help of Alfred (Michael Caine), his loyal butler, and Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman), a tech expert at Wayne Enterprises, Batman is born. I'm so glad I went to this movie! I have really enjoyed watching the Batman and Superman movies of the past, but they have just been a little too much on the campy humor side. Christopher Nolan has delivered the best serious take on a superhero movie that I have ever seen. Christian Bale is amazing as the titular Bruce Wayne/Batman! I sure hope they make more of these!
Batman Begins centers around the complete origins of Bruce Wayne, who soon turns into the dark and strong alter ego known as Batman, from when his parents were killed to where he is being highly trained.
Gritty, dark, and very violent, we get the strongest Batman film we have EVER seen. Fantastic, in every word.
