Batman Begins 
Batman Begins
3/4 stars

A good origin film that shows the history Bruce Wayne's transformation to Batman. This was the beginning of the "dark, realistic" portrayal of super hero on screen. The only qualm I had was a proper antagonist that would rival Wayne’s new found skills and abilities, uninteresting score and a few dragging scenes. The action/fight scenes were good against Ducard, it was with Scarecrow that really wasn’t that interesting. Of all the artists involved, I felt Katie Holmes was the weakest link since her character Rachel Dawes was neither satisfying nor memorable. You have Christian Bale, Michael Caine as the reliable Alfred, the unprejudiced Jim Gordon portrayed by Gary Oldman, the innovative Mr. Fox played by Morgan Freeman, Cillian Murphy as fear master Scarecrow/Dr. Jonathan Crane and Henri Ducard/Ra’s al Ghul (Liam Neeson) as Wayne’s mentor. The script was inventive coupled with the pictures decent score, cool gadgets/car and plush cinematography became noticeable by viewers aching to find a more defined Batman picture with Bruce Wayne's origin.

The Tumbler was a welcome addition from the traditional Batmobile done before. Interesting quotes include: Ducard – “To manipulate the fear in others you must first master your own.” “Your anger gives you great power. But if you let it, it will destroy you.” Wayne - “It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.” Batman’s mentor really blurted some useful knowledge which anyone can apply in life. It makes the film have depth, aside from the themes of handling fear and coping with anger/the past. In the words of Scarecrow: “I respect the mind's power over the body.” Christopher Nolan’s mind worked exceptionally well for Batman Begins before his masterpiece had begun.
