Despite popular beliefs, BATMAN Begins is a dull, confusing film with poorly played characters and often boring results.

If not for its sequel, Batman Begins may be known as the definitive movie representation of the Batman. Bringing a sense of realism and grit not before seen in the genre, Batman Begins changed the game for the superhero movie and it has not looked back.

Very impressed. Finally a Batman movie about BATMAN! This movie captures the heart of Bruce Wayne and his story of evolving into the dark knight himself. Scarecrow and Ras Al Ghul may have been seen as the external villains but Batman had to deal with his own anger, revenge and inner demons himself. Great tone and atmosphere and I am glad this movie hit the 10 mark for me.

Batman Begins is a great intro into a great trilogy!

Batman Begins is a type of movie I wasn't expecting to be this great. After the thing that happened in 1997, Christopher Nolan stepped up and rebooted Batman and everyone wasn't anticipating this since Batman was a joke. The Origin Story was made much better than of Burton's 1989 Original. There's not a lot of action but it's great when it's there. Sadly, this movie was overshadowed by its 1 billion dollar hit "The Dark Knight". Please give this movie more love!

Inspiring and seminal...

The shaky cam may distract some viewers, but the characters, the dark tone, most of the performances, and the well-developed backstory of the titular character make this film a tremendous start to the greatest superhero film trilogy of all-time.

Wow. The best Batman film yet. A great movie period. It's great because it's so real.

A great origin story combined with a kick ass superhero. Nuff' said.

This is the perfect way to develop a character driven by drama, plus a great way to storytelling the process to become a Hero, great cast, great performances, a really visionary directorand a great "origin movie" for a hero

Batman begins is dark, but exciting and intellegent. One of the best batman films.

This is the CPR of Batman in every way. Christopher Nolan brings a chilling, gripping, and heartfelt background on the caped crusader. "Batman Begins" is a classic for decades to come. "I Would Quote This Movie"

A great start to an even greater trilogy. Lacking in villain but still manages to tell a compelling story.

Best seen before watching The Dark Knight Rises.

Though the consensus is that The Dark Knight was better, this was my favorite film in Christopher Nolan's trilogy.
½ December 3, 2016
A strong action movie, a decent crime thriller and my personal favourite of the trilogy. This is probably the strongest origin story ever told on film, by genuinely justifying every action the character makes, and making it seem fresh and new. The first 30 minutes are wonderful, presenting beautiful cinematography and sets, and an interesting Bruce Wayne. Being a fan of the original Batman comics, I've always been disappointed with Bruce Wayne in film. This and the animated series were the only ones to capture the loneliness, dependence and denial that Bruce goes through. I understand that many were disappointed with the Batman part of Batman Begins, but really don't see the issue. Yes, there is a drop in quality when reaching the third act, but at least I can understand the logistics of what's going on, unlike the next two films. My personal favourite Batman villain is scarecrow, and I loved the way they worked the philosophy of fear into the plot. While Ras Al G'hul may not be as memorable, he is well portrayed by Liam Neeson, and his intentions genuinely make sense. This truly was the beginning of the new Batman.
