Batman Begins is more than just your typical, silly, Sunday-morning Batman piece. It's a work of art.
Before this movie, that's all that Batman was. A silly popcorn flick.
But then the Nolan struck the cinemas...
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.

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 …

"Batman Begins" by Yojimbo

Christopher Nolan had already proved he could do characters and dialogue and in this latest reinvention of the classic comic book character, he proves emphatically that he can do action too. Taking cues from Tim Burton's previous attempt to bring the character back to its dark roots, Nolan's vision is so gritty and believable it makes Burton's film seem as comparatively camp as the Adam West TV series that preceded it. This origin story has no radioactive spiders or associated sillines; just an intelligent examination of a man's guilt and desire for revenge and the psychology of fear. This combined with unlimited resources that wealth can provide, Batman is born utilising some brilliant production design that not only looks fantastic, but also looks plausible. Bale was the perfect choice …
