The first chapter in the proposed "Dark Knight Trilogy" is dark, compelling, and articulate. Christopher Nolan's marvelous input to the origins of the Caped Crusader gives a good start to the trilogy. With a strong cast (Bale, Caine, Neesen, Freeman, Holmes & Oldman) along with a...

Batman Begins re-established the Batman franchise as something that can deliver the blockbuster goods while also delivering a grounded and human story that connects with everyone. This is not a gothic Burton freakshow, nor is it the soulless special effects drivel that Schumacher...

Hands down the best "reboot" movie of all time, this one has it all. Nolan takes great care in setting up the backstory of the Caped Crusader in the first half of the film. The second half kicks into overdrive and ends with a fantastic finish.

Christopher Nolan's sweeping first chapter in the rebooted Batman is a much needed breath of fresh air in the super hero genre. Batman & Robin was a travesty of cinema; Joel Schumacher butchered something that Tim Burton worked hard at making. Batman forever was an average flick,...

Epic, dark, and intense, the film is a fantastic start to the Dark Knight trilogy. Though it lacks the power the following film runs on, Batman Begins has its own iconic feel to it and is a thrill to watch.
