Where is Gotham City? I only ask because this movie makes you feel as if you could actually go there, as if it actually exists somewhere. I liked Tim Burton's Batman, but Christopher Nolan's vision is so well paced and so real, that it is, in my humble opinion, the first REAL Batman movie. Christian Bale brings Batman to life with all of the emotion of a real person, I guess it takes a real actor to do so. The supporting cast is a group of actors with so much character that they could have had there own movies. Alfred is awesome. So many great movies stumble some during their running time, but this one did not miss a step.
Batman Begins is a good start to the Dark Knight Trilogy once you get past the beginning of the movie roughly the first 45 minutes for background infomation on the main character of how he came to be the way he is. Then the last hour and half is a great action adventure movie full of great fight scenes, an amazing car chase sceen have to watch to witness it for yourself, and a villan who usally plays a good guy but a villian you love to hate to start this trilogy off. I only gave this movie a 4 star rating because of the first part of the movie but the movie is saved by the acting of the main actor plus Morgan Freeman and Michael Cain. The movie also ends on the setting the path for Batman's next villan to take on in the movie The Dark Knight. In closing still a good movie to watch and enjoy when you just have some freetime to sit back and relax.
As mid October rolls around, brisk winds sweep through the crisp autumn air, jack o'lanterns decorate steps and porches, the scent of wood smoke radiates from wood stoves, and the leaves are in their peak season of color. October is a magnificent month, and in celebration of its annual visit, I've decided to review a few great flicks for the Halloween season. The titles that I've chosen to review are "alternative" Halloween movies... not the classics that generally spring to mind, but fun movies with elements of the supernatural. Just good, lighthearted stuff here... nothing gory or scary (at least not too much)!
"Batman Begins" is an exceptional movie, no matter how you want to judge it- drama, superhero adaptation, or action movie. What I particularly loved about it was how it gave a credible origin to the legend of Batman. Rather than just asking the viewer to accept that Bruce Wayne has a ridiculously high aptitude for stealth and combat, director Christopher Nolan...
