Batman Begins and rocks too

Batman is my favourite super-hero. He's all human; he's got no special powers like Spidey and Superman. He has a tragic past. He's sorta has a dark side. And he's got super-cool gadgets.

Batman Begins, the movie, brings out all that and more. As the name suggests, this is the story of how Bruce Wayne became Batman. We follow Wayne through different phases in his life, his childhood tragedy, his coming to terms with that tragedy, his (ninja ?) training at the hands of the silent warriors, and his transformation into Batman. The story's good too, which helps.

Christian Bale is pretty good as the new Batman and I guess he'll be keeping this role for the inevitable (woo hoo) sequels to follow. Michael Caine is Alfred, the butler and does a good job. Katie Holmes has a decent role and is awfully cute as the assistant DA. (Tom, you lucky man you!) Gary Oldman, Liam Neeson, and Morgan Freeman round off the star-cast.

There are some memorable scenes in the movie and if you're a Batman fan (like I am), you'll want to watch the movie again. Of course, the Batmobile kicks ass!

But first, if you haven't watched it, go watch. Batman Begins has action, suspense, thrills, light sprinkles of humour, and is a nicely made movie.

Totally true. Saw the movie yesterday. Everything you've said, I totally agree. :-)

I won't beg to differ, but I differ anyways. Since when did Batman ever learn martial arts from an oriental? DC comics will do a double-take shortly, from the sheer unbelievable nature of a Batman ninja. Sheesh. We're not duds.

Yeah, I was wondering about the learning from ninja warriors part. I've not read all the Batman comics (heck, I've not read a Batman comic in quite a while), so I wasn't sure if it was something from the comics or whether it was a "new" development.
