Movie: Batman Begins
The film is set before the dozen of batman movies that have come and gone before it and focuses on how batman became.. well, batman.
The city of gotham is examined under a microscope and Bruce Wayne (batman) is seen through the eyes of those closest to him. We learn that batman isnt just about his nifty gadgets and chick-magnet bat-mobile, but we see Bruce Wayne as a person who had to endure much personal anguish and hardship before he became the Dark Knight.
The film is great for those of u who've been living under a rock for the past few years and have never heard of batman, as it explains everything in great detail. However, for those fanatics out there who have an old batsuit collecting dust in ur wardrobes, you will also be pleased as you begin to appreciate the Knight in a new light.
With an all star cast of Morgan freeman, Liam Nielson, Michael Cain, Katie Holmes and (as IceMyst informed me on the Open News board) Christian Bale(batman), Batman Begins sets a solid grounding for what I am sure is to be yet another long line of film sequels.
