"Batman and Robin" practically killed the "Batman" franchise. Christopher Nolan did CPR to the universe of Batman. "Batman Begins" is the best superhero origin story I have ever seen in my life. The movie itself is very smart and so entertaining. Christopher Nolan understands the character of Batman/Bruce Wayne. He sees that there are two sides to the man. This is shown very well by Christian Bale's performance. Many people say that Bale's Batman voice is ridiculous. I actually really like it. The voice is the thing that separates Batman from Bruce Wayne. Katie Holmes plays his love interest and she is not that bad. One thing "Batman Begins" does so well is the tone of seriousness. The 1989 version of" Batman" didn't go too dark. The villain was a little too campy in Michael Keaton's version. In this reboot, everything is so serious. Also, that movie didn't go in depth about the character of Bruce Wayne. This one did. It shows he struggles from his past. It shows him wanting to do the right thing. The movie is very interesting despite the fact that it is a simpler plot (this does not take away from my overall feeling of the film). Christopher Nolan handled the plot very carefully and executed it perfectly. "Batman Begins" also has incredible action. The sword-fights, the chase scenes, and the martial arts sequences are all filmed very well. The action felt real. Hans Zimmer's score is so dark and suspenseful. The music makes the movie better and it fits the movie's tone perfectly. The screenplay for the movie is amazing. The dialogue and the movement is just perfect. There are many themes in "Batman Begins" that are worth mentioning. For example, the idea of picking ourselves up when we fall is consistently shown. Also, the movie shows that our actions are who define us as a person. I love "Batman Begins". It is for sure one of my favorite movies of all time. Whenever a reboot is successful, I say that it is the "Batman Begins" of the franchise. The outstanding performance of Christian Bale, the fast-paced plot, and the action make Batman Begins one of the best comic book movies ever made. In my opinion, the trilogy gets better with "The Dark Knight". The entire trilogy is worth checking out.
