Great origin story of the Dark Knight, with a strong cast, that focus more on the man's journey, rather than the end result.

amazing film. goes in depth into the psychological aspects of Bruce Wayne and how he became Batman. Perfect opening to the trilogy. Showed the true essence of Batman. He is a ninja, he uses stealth over brute force. He mastered his own childhood fear of bats. Mastered, not conquered. He still fears the bats, but lives among them so that he is capable of fully functioning and making proper decisions in the face of fear. He also uses fear against his enemies, against those who prey on the fear of others. Great story. (5 viewings)

The movie that made Batman not a laughing stock does so in flying colors.

An intriguing journey with Bruce Wayne on his path to becoming Batman. Fantastic work by Mr Nolan on all accounts, theme music, characters, story line, places, everything! There is never a dull moment in-between the rich stories or action sequences. Liam Neeson and Christian Bale are not the only great actors in this A-list cast! One of the best movies of all time!

As Gotham is fighting a war against corruption and is in an economic depression, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist Bruce Wayne decides to take up the mantle and become the hero this city truly deserves. As the Dark Knight soars through the skies at night, intimidating and preying on the fearful, he realizes the dark nature of murder and fear. While Scarecrow and the League of Shadows try plunge Gotham into the abyss and trenches of Hell, The messiah known as the "Batman" shows beyond doubt that a city as fallen and as immoral as Gotham; could be saved, and I got to tell you it's one heck of a ride. Christopher Nolan (the genius behind this movie) makes a sharp transition into a darker and an even grittier superhero flick. But that's not the only thing, "Batman Begins" is way smarter than any superhero movie to date and it is certainly one the best movies I have ever seen

One of the three brilliant films from the trilogy. 5 star classic

Starts out very slow, really forces you to pay attention at first. You start to doubt whether or not you will ever see the caped crusader in action but then you watch Nolan's masterpiece come together and you will leave the movie excited and fulfilled for your time spent. The film is not entirely perfect, Nolan talks about the risks they didn't take that he thinks would've added to the movie but this goes down as one of the greatest hero movies ever. Truly inspiring.

Director Christopher Nolan's take on such an iconic character turns out to have a matter of importance to the world of comic book movies.

Batman Begins opens the trilogy in the best way possible, making Nolan's Batman trilogy more than a superhero movie.

A more in depth look at the history of Batman and how he became the Dark Knight, was wonderful to see and when the movie picks up, it presents itself with everything you could possibly want from a Batman film.

Watched this with Wyatt. He loved it.

Expertly crafted and an absolute blast. Batman Begins marks the beginning of a new era for superhero movies, saving the caped crusader from campy memories.

The film takes a little while to get off the ground, but after it does, it soars.

Grade: A-

The acting is fairly disappointing, especially Rachel's performance. The movies plot was fairly well developed. The special effects where fairly lazy, by keeping the movie in darkness to make effects easier and cheaper. The movies story is crucial for the next two films.

after Joel Schumacher bastardised the franchise Christopher Nolan brought it back to life and went on to make the dark knight (2008) and the dark knight rises (2012) which were award winning films. I think the reason for this is because Nolan stated in an interview that " I think the reason films are good or so the reason behind great movies is because of the actors in it" He took this and cast English actors to portray the characters. Christian Bale-Batman/Liam Neeson-Ras Al Ghul/Michael Caine-Alfred Pennyworth/Gary Oldman- commissioner Gordon. I think Nolan chose these actors because he is English himself and he could there would be unspoken chemistry between him and the actors. The first half of the film is following Bruce wayne's journey and it gives the audience insight to the character and fleshes Bruce out unlike any Batman film before it. It can make us relate to the character even more with his human emotions that weren't explored in previous films.

Chris Nolan's Batman trilogy are the best DC movies ever made. Period.

Batman Begins is a great movie. I love Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne. I thought he was an excellent choice. Although I don't like the Batman voice. It's all raspy and weird. Michael Caine was great as Alfred. I did not like Katie Holmes' performance as Rachel though. Everything else is great. Like the action, the acting (except for Katie Holmes), the story, and the characters (once again, except for Katie Holmes).

This was an excellent way to reboot the franchise, and will never forget going to see it with my dad on Fathers Day ten years ago! Christopher Nolan and Hans Zimmer have brought something really special to this trilogy, making it timeless, and something that will always have a special place in my heart! Thank you Chris, you're a genius!
One thing that I kinda have a problem with in this reboot, however, is the casting of Katie Holmes as the hot love interest Rachael. I was just so used to seeing here as one of the chicks from the college series Dawson's Creek, and looking at her here, she is trying, but is not that good of an actress. Like MAD magazine pointed out, the weird sores around her mouth. Other than those facial expressions, she was, meh.

Una de las mejores películas que se han realizado sobre el personaje de Batman, y punto. Y para gusto de un servidor, superior al Caballero Oscuro en algunos aspectos (ojo, que no digo que esta sea mejor película).

Sabe capturar realmente la esencia del personaje (al menos en sus etapas más actuales) y está rodada con mimo. Buena realización, buena edición, grandes interpretaciones, una historia interesante y que hasta cierto punto hace reflexiones profundas sobre la sociedad, la justicia, el valor, etc...maníqueas, sí, pero al menos se preocupa por hacer dichas reflexiones y no nos entrega un guión vacío lleno de set-pieces.

El problema que quizás tenga esta película es que fue la primera semilla para el camino que se ha seguido en la creación del DCCU, y todos sabemos lo "bien" que está funcionando...
