Batman done the right way Posted by: from: on Despite the success of Tim Burton's good-looking but dramatically lacking 1989 Batman, it wasn't until this film that the Caped Crusader would finally get the big screen justice that Christopher Reeve & co. gave to Superman (hence why this pic is called Batman Begins & the Superman revival was called Superman Returns). Although some have criticized the tone of voice he uses, Christian Bale brings the pathos & energy to the title role which Michael Keaton failed (or was unable) to bring. Bruce Wayne travels the world acquiring the means to fight for justice following his parents' death. He later finds himself fighting the very man who mentored him (Liam Neeson) & the diabolical Scarecrow (Cillian Murphy). Like Superman, this film has an appropriately epic feel which allows the viewer to get into the mind of the main character and discover what drives him. My favorite scenes are Batman & Gordon (Gary Oldman) forging their professional bond.

Excellent movie!!! Posted by: from: Winston-Salem, NC on This movie was absolutely amazing, my wife and I love it! After the original Batman(1989), all the other Batman movies became a joke. They kept changing Batman actors, they tried cramming to many characters into the movies, and the over all films just became comedical kids movies. Now, starting over, they're doing it right! Batman, according to the comics, was sort of a bad good guy,(much like the Punisher.) Batman comics were originally meant to be very dark and serious, not funny! It got that wrap from cartoons and the TV shows from the 50s and 60s. The 1989 version and Batman Returns were close, but still some what comedical. The new Christian Bale Batman is sticking to it's roots, and becoming the dark and serious, more sinister Batman it was intended to be. (Unless you're a fan of the old goofy Batman and Robin spoof, then you'll love this movie.) I thoroughly enjoyed this film and highly recommend it along with The Dark Knight!

Yes!!! Posted by: from: Burington, NC on Finally, someone got it right! This is the way Batman was supposed to be. Scratch the past versions of Batman, and everything you think you know. This is a great way to start it all over, the way it was intended! No more silly goofy Batman roles. This is the real Batman!!! Christian Bale should get best actor! Also, check out Dark Knight!

Good Revival On An Already Dead Series. Posted by: from: Redlands, CA on If you're a fan of Batman, then you won't be disappointed. But, if you just absolutely loved the Burton films then you will be...while Burton took a more of a fantasy approach towards the movies, Nolan takes a much more realistic one. Christian Bale delivers a good performace as the tormented Bruce Wayne, and of course who can forget Michael Caine, serving as the comic relief. The movie takes you to the very origins of Batman...from his martial art training...to his taking over Wayne Enterprises and finally saving Gotham City from breaking into chaos.

The Beginning of a Legend... Posted by: from: on I will try to skip going over a synopsis of this film, as I'm sure you can find one elsewhere. I will say that this film is utterly fantastic, brilliant, and well-written. It is now one of my all-time favorite films. I will now focus on the DVD. The first disc includes (of course) the film itself. The picture quality is amazing. Everything is very clear and sharp with nice, vibrant colors. It could not be better. The sound is a little harder to judge. I do not have a surround sound setup, and therefore cannot say what it sounds like coming through 6 speakers, etc. But even with the good old-fashioned 2-speaker stereo setup, the sound is clear and dynamic. A very good job all-around. Also on the first disc is the trailer for the film and the hilarious Batman Begins spoof, "Tankman Begins". The second disc includes the rest of the special features. Most of these are short documentaries, each focusing on a specific behind-the-scenes topic. Everything you will want to know is covered, from the forming of the film's story to casting the characters, from building the Batman suit to the creation of the spectacular visual effects. All of these features are accesible through a creative, "interactive comic-book" format. Also on the second disc are some 'character files'; short biographies for the fictional characters in the film. There are also a few hidden features for those who wish to hunt them out. All in all, this is an excellent DVD release of an excellent film, and worth every penny of the price.

Waste of Time Posted by: from: on This new 'Batman' film is bad in almost every way possible other than special effects. The dvd presentation is excellent, as are the bonus features, but the film itself isn't even worth the time of watching, let alone your hard earned money.
