Batman Begins (6)


Released 2005 Rating 12 in UK
Director Christopher Nolan Writer/s David S Goyer, Christopher Nolan
Starring Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes, Gary Oldman, Cillian Murphy, Tom Wilkinson, Morgan Freeman, Ken Watanabe
Source of story A DC comics character – mostly said to be “Batman:Year One”
Elevator Pitch Batman uses the resources of Wayne Enterprises to take on the Scarecrow who intends to scare the population of Gotham to death, and the League of Shadows who intend to destroy the city. All this after Bruce Wayne has travelled for years and undertaken ninja training on the roof of the world in Tibet, while trying to eliminate his feeling of guilt for the death of his parents.
Content Quite a bit of ninja training and time spent in the Wayne Industries Special Projects department. Thereafter much Batman combat in dark streets, some glittering events where Bruce pretends to be a playboy, to the detriment of his possible romance with the female assistant DA. Some fun car chases with the Batmobile. No sex, nudity, swearing or drug taking.
A View Be prepared for a lot of exposition in this movie, which I would have been happy without, and I was not too enthusiastic about Gotham, which was a lot more like a version of New York or anywhere, rather than the Gothic city of the Tim Burton films. Other than that it went along fine, probably a watch if you like superheroes.
