Synopsis:
In the wake of his parents' murders, disillusioned heir Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) travels the world seeking the means to fight injustice and turn fear against those who prey on the fearful. With the help of his trusted butler Alfred (Michael Caine), detective Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) and his ally Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman), Wayne returns to Gotham City and unleashes his alter ego: Batman, a masked crusader who uses strength, intellect and an array of high-tech weaponry to fight the sinister forces that threaten the city.

The best Batman film by miles. - Batman Begins review by Shatner's Bassoon

Spoiler Alert

I have to admit to not being much of a fan of the past films in the Batman franchise; but hats off to director Chris Nolan and writer David Goyer because 'Batman Begins' is not only the best Batman film out of the bunch, it's easily the best within the superhero genre made so far. The film begins by exploring the origins of Bruce Wayne and goes into great detail to explain his transformation into the Batman. Easily as famous as Batman is the Batmobile or 'Tumbler' as it's also known in this film, it really makes all previous Batmobiles look like play toys, and the Batmobile chase scene is just breathtaking to watch. As well as a great storyline, the choice of cast is what sets this film apart from others within the comic book superhero genre. Christian Bale brings a real depth and darkness to the character of Bruce Wayne/Batman; Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, and Liam Neeson all provide superb supporting roles and Cillian Murphy is fantastic as the creepy and psychotic villain 'The Scarecrow'. Easily one of the best films this year!

OK Film - Batman Begins review by Peter

Spoiler Alert

Not Bad, but with a lot of film of this genre, is that it has too many quick cuts to make the action look fast.

Phenomenal movie but what's with the beginning? - Batman Begins review by Kandiye

Spoiler Alert

The first 20/25 minutes of this movie was dire but the rest was excellent. Did Mr Nolan think he could jump straight into the action without laying a good foundation for the story first? Liam Neeson was farcical as Ra's Al Ghul and at times Christian Bale seemed to be a little comical himself but on the whole an excellent piece of cinematography. Katie Holmes, who had been slated by many critics, gives a career-best performance (you probably haven't seen any of her other movies so you may not understand the high praise) and Morgan Freeman, Cillian Murphy, Michael Caine and Tom Wilkinson all give note-worthy cameos. Definitely worth watching - just try to ignore the boring beginning.
