Well, feeling that Joel Schumacher had effectively killed off the Batman franchise with the camp nonsense that was 'Batman & Robin,' I was somewhat surprised to hear there was a reboot a few years later. Of course, reboots are everywhere these days but just a decade ago it was still a fairly new concept. So, not really knowing what to expect, I sat down to watch this film & was mightily impressed, though not just by its scale, its heart thumping action scenes & its gorgeous visuals but also by its storytelling & performances. Finally, we were given some background & psychological insights as to why Bruce Wayne became Batman, all thanks to director Christopher Nolan's & writer David Goyer's intelligent screenplay. What was also impressive was how they managed to take a comic book character & make not only him real & plausible but also the outlandish gadgetry he used too. Casting was also key, with Christian Bale perfect as both Bruce Wayne & the titular crime fighter, while ably supported by such stalwarts as Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Rutger Hauer, Liam Neeson & Gary Oldman; as well as rising stars, Cillian Murphy & Katie Holmes.

In the decade or so since its release, comic book films have largely turned away from the dark seriousness that this film seemed to enshrine as the way ahead for such movies & have injected far more fun, which is understandable as gloomy introspection can be a little dull after a while but for those who like the darkness & the more realistic approach to such fantastical characters, you really can't beat 'Batman Begins' & its two sequels. So, Christopher Nolan, I salute you!

Exposing the foundations of how Bruce evolved both physically and mentally into the Batman answered questions I wasn't aware I had. Action sequences were great and the Wayne Corp. toybox (curated by the incomparable Morgan Feeman) is an Aladdin's cave of science and technology where anything's possible if money's no object. Plus the Tumbler is superb

It's a great looking steelbook but wasn't taken care of in the dispatch process and came badly dented. Annoyed.
