This movie really is a superb example of how any major comic book character should be portrayed. Grounded in some sort of reality that touches the viewer on an emotional level, and amazing character development that allows you to appreciate the moments when the main character isn't in costume. Two thumbs up for a movie that warrants repeat viewing, as well as having a story deep enough to keep you interested no matter how many times you have seen it… Read Full Review

The storyline was excellent. The special effects were brilliant. The reality factor is higher than most Super Hero films. t offers a new angle on the whole Batman theme, bringing the Cartoon to life. It is a full energy film that will leave you on the edge of your seat for more action. It is probably the best film this decade. It has kept us entertained at least 5 times already. As for the Batmobile, where can I get one?… Read Full Review

The casting in general was good, apart from the character of Katie Holmes. Her annoying lip slant and slightly tranced look, doesn't present well on to the big screen… Read Full Review

For a start, the plot is good, as we see Bruce Wayne's transformation into the Dark Knight. The film begins miles away from home as Bruce Wayne is in a foreign prison, getting in fights and rubbing the locals up the wrong way. His devastating combat skills are noted by an elite group… Read Full Review

Batman Begins: Let's get one thing before we go any further - this is not your father's Batman. Actually, let's make that two things - this is not the superhero movie to take your kids to. That's probably going to be Fantastic Four when it arrives. Kids will be bored witless by Begins, and will spend the first half relentlessly asking you where Batman is. Get a sitter.
Batman of course has been featured on both the big and small screens for decades now, from the camp insanity of Adam West and… Read Full Review
