Batman Begins

Wow. This is an incredible movie. Christian Bale should *always* be Batman. He nailed Bruce Wayne's conflicted personality, and he fills out that Batsuit quite well.

I don't read the comics, so I don't know how well the movie did with getting the backstory "right" but it *felt* right to me. The writing was outstanding, the casting amazing (and how nice to see Gary Oldman playing a good guy for a change!). And it's wonderful to see a summer movie that isn't 90% CGI special effects.

Two big thumbs up.

"Would you like to see my mask?"

An incredible movie which ignores cgi effects for real character development. When Bruce screamed 'Alfred...help me' I almost cried like a big baby. The emotion in Bale's plea and on Caine''s face...unbelievable.

Living in the UK I've never seen a cinema audience applaud a film as the credits roll...until last night.

I hear it's under performing at the box office (both here and stateside). God, I hope it makes enough to finance a sequel. The directer and cast wholly deserve it.

Great movie. This is how the Batman movies should have been done from the beginning.

Plus we see the acting debut of James former frontman Tim Booth.

$71,087,000 estimated 5-day box office. Not bad.

Not particularly good either. I really hope it gets great word of mouth and does not drop off fast. It was a great movie and deserves to make well over $150 million so they will go ahead with the sequel. If it ends up with only $130 million or so (as happened with Hulk, which did suck), then a sequel may not happen.

Haven't seen the new movie yet. But I must agree with WinnieThePoo. Micheal Keaton IS batman.

Agreed. Especially with regards to Michael Keaton.

The only particularly interesting elements in the movie (I found at least) were the apt choices for villains and the consistency in the story. For once the tandem bad guy selection worked, whereas the predecessor Schumacher films were disjoint and annoying in that character area. Having said that, Scarecrow could have been represented on screen a lot stronger (moreso a poor reflection on the writing). Although, the set up for the background of future Gotham villains turned out more convincing with the presence of Scarecrow practicing at Arkham.

Second best Batman film so far.

the film is fantastic is some ways
events before the cape ,
rutger hauer , morgan freeman & the new Alfred
scarecrow , great actor , it's a shame he 's not the main evil guy
, liam neeson did a good job , however his turn to evil throughout the movie does not look that believable
the mess about joker , but good film , director has a talent
something reminds me about six string samurai in this one

Huh, I had no idea! I went to imdb.com to see who he played, and it said he played Victor Sjaz (sp?).

Who the heck was that in the movie?
