Batman wings it after his heavil critisied movie Batman & Robin
I think Batman Begins is a really good movie, however, it is not as good as The Dark Knight or The Dark Knight Rise. Content-wise, it is slightly less violent than The Dark Knight Rises.
Action Violence: Intense. In the opening scene, Bruce's master Ra Al Ghul challenges him to a blade duel on thin ice. We see them fighting and minutes later, Ra Al Ghul shoves Bruce out of the way and Bruce hangs onto the edge of a cliff. Ra Al Ghul helps him back up. The Scarecrow's gas spreads across a mail room which poisons a group of people. In order to get Rachel, poisoned by the Scarecrow's fear toxin, to the Batcave in time to save her, Batman is forced to elude the cops in an extended chase over and through the city, which requires considerable property damage and disabling several police vehicles. For the first time, I am including spoilers in this review because I do not remember all the content, and definitely few that is not spoilers. Warning, spoilers ahead! Bruce's parents are shot off screen. Bruce's home is set on fire and he is left there to die. However, Bruce jumps out of the window and lands safely onto the ground but is shown with a few cuts on his face. Batman lands into a train which Ra's al Ghul has taken over. Ra's al Ghul and Batman have a prolonged fist fight with no blood or gore but later, Batman escapes from the train and the train falls from a derailed track with Ra's al Ghul still on the train, who closes his eyes as he dies. Spoilers over.
Disturbing Images: Many intense and frightening scenes throughout. The Scarecrow's voice sounds extremely menacing and will disturb young children.
Thematic Elements: Some. The first 20 minutes may be depressing.
