It stars Christian Bale as Batman along with Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes, Gary Oldman, and Morgan Freeman.

 If you have any doubts... let them go. This is Batman.   July 7, 2013   Report Abuse

Many wonder why Batman Begins is in the top 100 on IMDb top 250. The answer is simply this: This movie redefined what a summer blockbuster should be like.

The summer blockbuster before this was supposed to be a mostly an action/effect based film with a mix of comedy and drama, however the movie in the end was about and memorable for the action and F/X. Batman Begins however, did something different. It had the action, though little F/X. But it made the dramatic elements of the movie just as important as the action. The comedy element stayed the same as it before, thus creating this new genre of film: A dramatic action blockbuster.

Nolan and Bale are the two big people to thank for this new genre. Nolan direction and Bale acting combined created this genre that made you think about the world and your actions, BUT IT ALSO was a fun film that entertained you and had great one-liners.

The messages that you learn from this are valuable in life and ones most should follow. They are real.

However, there is also that fantasy element thrown in this, where your mind is suspended in disbelief, such as the batank "flying on rooftops." This element is actually necessary to the film. For without this, the film is just this character-drama. And without the other element, the film is just another action-film. But combined, you get this dramatic-action that you just can't help but love because there are just too many reasons to love it.

If you're an "art house" guy, you can love the film for the character drama. If you're just a regular movie-goer, you can love it for the action. And if you're like me, who is sort of a mix, you can love it for everything as it has everything from all the genres.

Batman Begins may not be considered to be one of the greatest to most, but most can not deny that this film has redefined what a summer blockbuster should be. From now on, all blockbusters quality will be judged upon this film

 Great movie!   July 20, 2013   Report Abuse

As I've mentioned in my other superhero film reviews, I'm not really much on comics and don't know a lot of the nuts and bolts of these characters and stories. What I do know about these superheroes was enough for me to really enjoy this film.

I thought this film was written well and Nolan's direction was practically superb. I liked Bale's performance as the Dark Knight. It really seemed he played like 3 different characters. There was Bruce Wayne the playboy, Bruce Wayne the person, and then putting on the cowl and cape he becomes another person. I've heard some say that they didn't care for his gruff voice and there wasn't a reason to do that. I personally think it added to the character.

It was a great start to the trilogy and it was something that had a real feel to it. It was like if someone had the training and resources as Bruce Wayne, that someone could actually be Batman. That is what I like about some of these recent superhero films is that there is a sort of human touch to the story which also makes it more believable and real, at least for me anyway.

The movie was amazing, a lot of Action, Adventure. Although The movie doesn't earn a lot, but still a great movie. The beginning was really nice, where he learns how to fight and how he became batman, totally amazing. The Action in this movie was really nice, a rich saving the world.
