Batman Begins Storyline: The story is about 8-year old young Bruce Wayne’s parents getting shot in front of him, a few years later he is shown in prison, “how is this possible” well he was arrested because of some shipments and ironically it’s his name. So he gets bailed out by a man named Ra’s Al Ghul, he then travels to The League Of Shadows temple, and he recieves training from him and he is learnt the ways to fight injustice, thus returning to Gotham City, and becoming the hero we know as Batman.
Batman Begins Performances: All the performances performances in this movie are stellar, and each one does not seem out of place or pointless. Christian Bale is a solid choice for this reinvention of the cinematic Batman. The darker take on Bruce Wayne is a perfect fit for Bale’s intense performance style. Michael Caine is also excellent as Alfred. Katie Holmes is also good as Rachel. Morgan Freeman is simply irreplaceable.
Nolan and David S. Goyer were perfect with their screenplay, Ending was spot on. This is the perfect ending from where Joker gets the hone launch in the sequel. Director Christopher Nolan comes along and blows all my expectations out of the water. ‘Batman Begins’ is a surprise return to form for the Batman, and rivals the best comic book movies.
Survi Verdict: ‘Batman Begins’ is an enjoyable feature that leaves you waiting anxiously for the next installment “The Dark Knight”.
