This movie takes the hero-movie genre to another dimension. It is hard to fathom another hero series coming close to this movie and its sequels.

I'm Batman

The movie doesn't simply supply Batman's beginnings in the tradition of a comic book origin story, but explores the tortured path that led Bruce Wayne from a parentless childhood to a friendless adult existence. The movie is not realistic, because how could it be, but it acts as if it is.

The story of why he identifies with bats (childhood trauma) and hates evildoers (he saw his parents killed by a mugger) has been referred to many times in the various incarnations of the Batman legend; this time, it is given weight and depth. It give us flashbacks to establish the character's deepest traumas, including his special relationship with bats and his guilt because he thinks he is responsible for his parents' mugging.

He gave Batman a meaning. He didn't just tell you: hey look, a bat suit, doesn't it look cool? No. He said: Here's a person. A person who is tormented by the fact that his city is dying, and wants to spark a symbol, so that people will stand up to their fears. So he picks his fear: Bats.
Christopher Nolan taking over Batman is the best thing in cinema since Kubrick. I couldn't imagine a better re-imagining.
I cannot praise the brilliant screenplay enough, because it portrays elements of Bruce Wayne, which don't only describe him as a person and as the Batman. The...

Does it come in black?

When a director is faced with the task of rebooting a franchise that ended in horrific fashion, their duty is both simple and difficult. On one hand, just about anybody could make a movie better than Batman & Robin. On the other hand, where do you go in terms of making the new franchise your own? Director Christopher Nolan lets fans know from the very beginning that his Batman is a much more dark and complex character, creating the most human portrayal of Batman yet.

We learn immediately that Bruce Wayne is terrified of bats. He fell down a well as a child, which caused the bats at the bottom to panic and swarm all around him. This moment in his childhood left a serious mark on his life, but not as serious as one that would soon follow. Bruce witnesses the murder of his parents, as the...
