5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the original Batman movies. Nov. 30 2006
By sun
If you are a hard core batman fan of the originals, you may not like this movie, much like some of the previous reviewers said. However, as a movie itself Batman Begins is brilliant. It's dark and serious, it gets down to why Batman really is Batman. The Burton movies were obviously supposed to have a very comic book feel to them but his movie is completely different. You actually believe that Batman could exist, and that he really is justified in doing what he believes in. There is a lot more emotion in this movie, and some great acting by the cast. When it comes down to it, I rate this movie one of the best of the year and highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A much better Batman March 18 2007
"Batman Begins" brings an interest back to the DC character, not seen since the original. Christian Bale turns out to be a good choice for a much darker Batman. This movie focuses more on Bruce Wayne, then on his super hero alter ego. Unlike the smooth Bruce Wayne of past movies who had endless amounts of charm and charisma, this Bruce Wayne is a much more realistic person with flaws and fears. The more flashy and over the top fight scenes have been toned down, for this dark more edgy Batman movie. Liam Neeson as Henri Ducard, provides the most interesting Batman villain since Jack Nicholson's Joker. Other past villains like Arnold Schwarzenegger's Ice Man have been much less memorable. Neeson's jaded character has more depth to it. The movie's biggest weakness is the relationship between Bruce Wayne and Katie Holme's Assistant D.A. character Rachel Dawes. The dialogue between the two characters is uninspired and somewhat boring. Morgan Freeman plays Lucius Fox, a friend of Bruce Wayne. He helps Bruce Wayne get access to Wayne Enterprise's many inventions. Freeman is solid in this role as in most everything he is in. Michael Caine is also solid as Alfred the Butler. Alfred has always been more than just a butler, but acts as Bruce Wayne's advisor. Caine plays the part of the humble and wise servant very well.

Previous performances by George Clooney and Val Kilmer as Batman felt more like copies of Michael Keeton's original performance. It seemed as though they were trying to replicate the success of the original by following the same formula. That forumlaic approach combined with characters like Robin and BatGirl, did nothing to add to the series. This movie did a better job of giving its characters some substance and as a result more intrique. This time around, a less perfect Batman, makes for a much better movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Batman ever! Nov. 4 2005
Everthing about this film is great. I saw it in the theatre and I've watched it almost everyday since I've picked up the DVD. Great story, direction, acting and photography. Christian Bale is the best Batman to date.
In my opinion it was the best film of 2005. And trust me I don't usually give much praise to modern North American films let alone comic book films.
I have very high expectations for the sequel to this film. Whenever that may be, I anxiously await.

5.0 out of 5 stars Batman Begins Limited Edition Giftset [Blue-ray] Aug. 9 2012
By j-maAN
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I own 'Batman Begins' on DVD, Blu-ray and now this giftset which will remain unopened for some time. It's neat. The front picture is actually holographic, it comes with post cards,movie tickets to see 'The Dark Knight' in theaters (now useless, obviously), a 16 page comic book of the prologue of 'The Dark Knight' and an additional 32 page booklet of storyboards, script and stills from the movie! This is the beginning of what is one of the greatest trilogies ever created!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for Bat-fans, Begins is a great movie Oct. 23 2005
By D. Oman
Batman Begins is the best comic book flick I've ever seen. It may also be the best movie I've seen in well over a year. If there was any justice Batman Begins would fetch an Oscar nomination or two.

By falcon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
for my money,this is easily one of the best superhero movies made in recent times.the movie basically is the story of the genesis of the caped crusader.obviously there is a fair amount of character development involved,which you would expect based on the title.in this movie,Batman is shown as more of a full dimensional character than in previous Batman films.i also think this version is more faithful to the comic book.director Christopher Nolan paces the film very well.there are also some humourous touches throughout and we are shown a more human side of Bruce Wayne.the villains are also more fully realized than in most movies of the genre,rather than just being plot plot devices for the hero(protagonist)to defeat the villain(antagonist).Christian Bale is terrific as the dark knight,and Gary Oldman and Morgan are standouts as well.however,in my opinion,i don't think Katie Holmes has yet to reach the level of maturity required for her role,so i thought she was a bit on the weak side.this doesn't effect the film overall.this Batman is less cartoonish than some of the previous efforts and is closer to the realm of realism(relatively speaking).i also think it's much more thoughtful than many movies depicting superheroes.there is much more substance.in fact it has more substance than style,though it is just stylish enough.all in all,a brilliant depiction of the caped crusader.this film sets the bar high for its successor,"The Dark Knight" which is to be released sometime in 2008

A shame Christian Bale didn't return as his characterisation of Batman is fantastic, if not the best.

3.0 out of 5 stars Every story has a begining :p
I only bought this DVD to complete the Trilogy set. The story is rather weak in my opinion, and I think it was the boring compared to the other 2 movies in the trilogy.

We are in a golden age of comic book movies right now -- and at least some of the credit for that goes to Christopher Nolan. Read more
