Batman Begins was an amazing movie. The film is basically the origin story for Batman. The movie traces the path Bruce Wayne takes from being just some angry dude, to becoming Batman. I’m not sure what liberties they’ve taken with the origin as outlined in the comic books, but the story they present in the film is quite good. The casting was excellent. All the characters were well suited for their roles. I really liked Cillian Murphy of 28 Days Later fame playing the role of the Scarecrow. Christian Bale makes a really good Batman, and a great Bruce Wayne. I actually think it might be the best in the series, even surpassing the first film by Tim Burton. Regardless, watching this film will help you forget all the crap that followed the two Burton movies.
