It sickened me in the past to see the Batman movie franchise slowly digging it&#39;s way to an early grave. After the quality Tim Burton films, the series pretty much went down the toilet, beginning a horrifically campy age of &#39;Bat credit-cards&#39; and an armored Arnold Schwarzenegger tossing cringe-worthy puns at a Batman who seemed to be trying not to be embarrassed by the fact that his costume had nipples. So what could Warner Brothers producers hope to do to resurrect the franchise? Pretend it never happened, and start the whole series over again with a talented director, compelling story and capable cast. <br/><br/>Enter Christopher Nolan, the mastermind behind 2000&#39;s &#39;Momento&#39;, widely praised as one of the most innovative films of the decade. As director/co- screenwriter, Nolan creates a richly dark, atmospheric world for Batman to inhabit, similar to that of the Burton films, but less cartoony. The film&#39;s screenplay, written by Nolan and David S. Goyer is quality stuff, it&#39;s true that some of the dialog exchanges can seem kind of contrived, particularly between Wayne and Liam Neeson&#39;s character, Ducard, but it sounds so classy you tend not to care. <br/><br/>Nolan also puts a lot of trust in his audiences to stay put while the first hour of the film comprehensively explores Bruce Wayne&#39;s backstory, with no cape donning and few fight sequences. Nevertheless, the pace never slows, and the story is so unexpected and fascinating (who would have expected a Batman film to begin in a prison in Tibet? only Nolan could pull it off!) there&#39;s little chance of us losing interest. And this way, we really get a sense of who Bruce Wayne is, a trait none of the past movies were able to capture, including the Burton films. We see what drives him, what leads him to become this iconic crime fighter, and the reasoning behind the mask.<br/><br/>Of course, to help the audience get under Bruce Wayne&#39;s skin, it doesn&#39;t hurt to have such a talented lead as Christian Bale. Bale has been emerging as one of the most talented actors of his generation, and he brings that talent to a peak here, playing the darkest of all superheroes. If you were to break down the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne, you would find that it is essentially three characters: Wayne as Batman, behind the mask; Wayne&#39;s public facade as the billionaire playboy; and the real, brooding Bruce Wayne. Bale plays all three of the characters to absolute perfection, and molds them together well enough to make it clear to show they are still the same person. He has been given tons of accolades for his performance already, and needless to say, he deserves every one.<br/><br/>And the sheer quality of the supporting cast is mind-boggling, if for the number of big names only. It&#39;s very hard to find a weak spot in the incredibly strong array of performances here, but if one had to be found, it would have to be Katie Holmes. It&#39;s not that she gives a bad performance, on the contrary, but just she seems too young to be convincing as a district attorney. For me, Michael Gough will always be the definitive Alfred, but Michael Caine does an excellent job of taking over the role, giving a very strong (and often funny) performance. Liam Neeson is sheer class as Ducard, Wayne&#39;s mysterious mentor, as is Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Wayne&#39;s arms manufacturer and provider of the Batman gear. It&#39;s wonderful to see the incredibly talented and much underrated Gary Oldman as Sgt. Gordon, the only decent cop in Gotham, and he truly makes the role his own. Even cult favorite Rutger Hauer makes an appearance as Richard Earle, the ambitious head of Wayne Enterprises. And (surprise surprise!) the villains are also actually menacing for once, as opposed to cartoony and corny. Cillian Murphy just about walks away with the show as the truly chilling Scarecrow (the sequences involving his &#39;fear gas&#39; are surprisingly frightening) Ken Watanabe is mysterious and creepy as guild leader Ra&#39;s Al Ghul and Tom Wilkinson is very convincing as Carmine Falcone, head of the Gotham city mob. <br/><br/>Nolan&#39;s knack for realism also comes as a breath of fresh air in this age of CGI bloated blockbusters - there are next to no computer generated shots in the movie, even a sequence with Batman standing on top of a high building staring down at the city was filmed with a stuntman. And it really works, the Batmobile actually interacts with it&#39;s environment, and looks so much better real than computer generated. But don&#39;t think that the film will come across as too serious and stuffy because of Nolan&#39;s realism - true, Gotham seems too dark and dirty to come across as a fantasy world, but Batman Begins retains that unmistakable sense of fun that seems to only be present in comic book movies. We jeer and fear the villains, and cheer the hero as he lays his life on the line to vanquish evil and save the city. And that is how it should be. There&#39;s even a surprising twist near the end, which is doubly surprising because it actually comes as a shock. What&#39;s not to love here?<br/><br/>(and, further cudos to director Nolan for finally managing to make a swarm of bats actually frightening for once)<br/><br/>Overall, I&#39;d have to label Batman Begins &#39;The must see movie of the summer&#39; - it&#39;s a well written, authoritatively directed, impeccably acted (especially by Bale&#39;s powerhouse lead performance and Cillian Murphy&#39;s sickly menacing Scarecrow) and very high quality production. Indeed, most other summer blockbusters could learn a thing or two from Batman Begins. If the Batman franchise died under it&#39;s own gaudiness years ago, let us rejoice this glorious rebirth - Batman truly does begin here.<br/><br/>-10/10

Christopher Nolan (and cast) have pulled off what I hadn&#39;t dared to dream - a Batman every bit as good as Burton/Keaton&#39;s vision - and eradicated the camp, feverish memories of Clooney, Kilmer and (cough..) O&#39;Donnell.<br/><br/>The story is as good an origin story as you&#39;ll find - covering all the major (true-to-the-comic) events, and not wasting ages on them. We see Wayne&#39;s all-important training period (previously ignored), and his connection to the Tibetan shadow-ninja clan led by Ra&#39;s Al Ghul. We see Bruce come up with ideas for his symbol, his costume, his gadgets, his car, his cave - IT ALL FITS SO PERFECTLY.<br/><br/>That&#39;s not all - Liam Neeson is perfect (as ever, when Lucas isn&#39;t writing his lines), Batman&#39;s first mad nemesis (the Scarecrow) is genuinely frightening; with some outstandingly scary &#39;fear&#39; effects.. Gary Oldman looks just like a young Commissioner Gordon (and doesn&#39;t dominate), Morgan Freeman and Rutger Hauer give solid heavyweight support to the boardroom machinations at Wayne Enterprizes. I love Michael Gough(?) but Michael Caine is great as Alfred. It&#39;s only Katie Holmes who didn&#39;t ring true for me - not because of her performance, but simply because she looks all of 15 years old (sorry Katie). I am always blown away by Christian Bale, and this is no exception.<br/><br/>The fights are great, the Bat-gadgets all there, the car is amazing, the plot is thorough and exciting, Gotham looks great, Batman really is frightening &amp; menacing (and lethal!).. And the scenes with the bats themselves FINALLY get across the idea of how scary they can be.<br/><br/>There is some humour, but it&#39;s fairly dry. The soundtrack, like all the best original soundtracks, is excellent - you hardly know it&#39;s there, but the emotions of the scene are enhanced and boosted. For the most part this is a serious Batman film, with plenty for long-time fans. This NEW Batman is one I&#39;d like to see again. Bravo Mr Nolan, bravo.

I had fearful reservations about this one. I loved Tim Burton&#39;s Batman - 12 years old when it came out I was the perfect age for it and I also enjoyed Batman Returns. The franchise went so wrong under Joel Schumacher that I wasn&#39;t sure I wanted it resurrected. Not least because Batman was one of the few comics I read and enjoyed as a kid and was always my favourite superhero. I grew up reading the comics, watching reruns of the Adam West TV show and then getting Burton&#39;s celluloid vision. I was spoilt for choice as a kid but as an adult now I was concerned revisiting the franchise, especially given Warner&#39;s record over the last decade of screwing up summer blockbusters with potential all over the place (dare I bring up the Matrix sequels?)<br/><br/>However, I am pleased to report I could not have been more wrong about how great Christopher Nolan&#39;s Batman Begins is. This is better than Burton. Sacrilege, you say?! Well Burton was still cartoony in many elements, he wasn&#39;t churning out the bilge of Schumacher but Burton&#39;s Batman was still over the top. As a kid this was ideal but Nolan&#39;s Batman is real. Everything in this world seems plausible and it is therefore a world that draws you in. Characters&#39; vulnerability is that much more present. Every bruise, every scare, every concern, every emotion seems real.<br/><br/>Part of this is that Nolan has assembled an exemplary cast. Again, this concerned me prior to seeing the film. I wasn&#39;t sure a cast of big name legends like Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman and well known names like Liam Neeson and Katie Holmes wouldn&#39;t detract and distract from Batman. I was always sure Christian Bale could be the great moody Batman he&#39;s been waiting his career to be but the others I wasn&#39;t so sure about.<br/><br/>That said Bale is not just good, he&#39;s superb. I never thought I&#39;d really be able to envision anyone other than Michael Keaton as the definitive Batman for me but since seeing Batman Begins a couple of days ago Bale has cemented himself in the position. Perhaps Keaton will now be able to escape the spectre of Batman he hasn&#39;t truly shaken off for 13 years.<br/><br/>The rest of the cast is also pitch perfect. Cillian Murphy is creepy as hell, Liam Neeson is authoritative and imposing, Katie Holmes is strong and sexy (I particularly thought she&#39;d be insipid, she should jettison Tom Cruise and let her talent - which she does have naysayers just watch Pieces Of April - speak for itself) and Michael Caine is an Alfred you&#39;ve never seen but in fact far more likely as a butler than the aristocratic pomp with which he is usually portrayed. Gary Oldman is also superb in a rare wholly decent character for him as Lieutenant Jim Gordon who gets far more to so here than Gordon has ever had to do before. Only Tom Wilkinson is a little off with a slightly comedic wise-guy American accent that never really convinces.<br/><br/>The emotional bond between Bruce Wayne and Alfred is actually a wonderful human heart to the film than Nolan and Goyer have written perfectly.<br/><br/>Don&#39;t let that make you think the action is not front and centre though. From Wayne&#39;s training through the early stages of the film to his early missions as Batman at about the half way point to a thrillingly choreographed chase sequence and an edge of your seat finale this film delivers the cool quotient in bucket loads.<br/><br/>Great villains (especially Murphy), great story, great cast, great action... put simply, great film. Probably the best comic-book movie ever made (that&#39;s excluding the genius Sin City which I consider a moving comic-book rather than a comic-book movie, that will never be bettered but Batman is a different beast and the best of its kind).
