They got rid of the Bat-nipples? Joel Schumacher will be so disappointed. Fortunately for everyone else, Nolan rejects the other Bat-sequels' lame campiness and returns Batman to his gritty roots, showing us how a young Bruce Wayne (Bale) first became the Caped Crusader. After training abroad with the mysterious Ducard (Neeson) and Ra's Al Ghul (Watanabe), Wayne begins his one-man war on crime with the help of his butler Alfred (Caine), good cop Jim Gordon (Oldman), and tech-savvy Lucius Fox (Freeman). The cast is beyond stellar, and Nolan does an amazing job of making Batman's world seem almost plausible. There's a bit too much angsty pondering about the nature of fear, but you'll forget all that once you see the Lamborghini-inspired Batmobile.

Who doesn't love Batman? I don't think I've met anyone who didn't enjoy a Batman movie. That would be so awesome if we had a super hero like batman in real life. I would have to say that Batman Begins was definitely different from any other Batman movie. It seemed more suspenseful mixed with a bit of comedy. They had an excellent cast as well. The cast included Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, and Katie Holmes are just a few names. Christian Bale did a great job playing batman. I'm pretty sure many people have seen Batman Begins and would agree with me when I say that this was a great movie. If your into action, suspense, mixed with a super hero, then this is the movie for you.
