I remember when the Batman comic came on the market, he was a creepy, scary ,sinister character who took on villains in his own way.That was what we liked about him, this is the only movie to date that touches on that dark tormented character.None of the other movies can portray that image as vividly as this one. 5 stars.
it's a really good movie, expected what was to happen, futuristic i thought, very good story.
Batman without the "Biff, Wham, Pow" supertitles? Hard to imagine, yes, but this really works. Very understated and dark, it tells Bruce Wayne's journey from zero to hero really well. Christian Bale is strong but cool as BW, Liam Neeson nicely arch as the evil villain and clearly Michael Caine has waited all his life to play Alfred. Fantastic!
A different spin to the old storie of batman, but thouroughly enjoyable can't wait for The Dark Night.
Have seen this now 4 times and great watch every time. Enjoyed this movie much more than any of the other Batman movies... still to watch the Dark Knight but I now have it on My Queue.
Batman movies just get better.
I haven't watched any of the Batman movies, so I guess this was a good place to start. A young boy watches his parent get killed. When he grows up he turns into Batman and vows to rid Gotham of crime. You see how he gets his Batmobile and his Batman outfit and other accessories.
what was the story line again?
Having seen Batman: The Dark Knight, I thought I should watch the first Batman of this remake version with Christian Bale as Batman. Christian does do a good job at playing Batman however, I do prefer the instinctive movements of Michael Keaton.
The start of this movie, while I understand the setting up of the movies background of the Batman, was boring and drawn out. I reckon that about half of the long winded beginning could have been scrapped.
Overall, it was a good movie with a good selection of actors and yes, I would buy it for my collection as long as I get to buy 'Dark Knight'.
You must see this movie before you see the Dark Night this movie is for every body it has a great story.
Excellent movie from start to finish. It gives the viewer the whole story from the early beginnings (making his costume etc) well worth watching if you are a Batman fan.
This movie is an absolute work of art!
A real surprise. Fabulous. Breathes new life into a dead franchise - it really is that good. Superb casting - Christian Bale is effortless as Batman and Michael Caine as Alfred is a joy. A very rare 5/5 from me.
Really gave you insight into Bruce Wayne and the Batman legacy, with a great cast. Little iffy on the accents thought.
Surprisingly good. The action wasn't overdone, very believable and a good storyline. I think Christian Bale makes a great Batman, very hot too.
l like my super hero movies to have more gags, this got pretty serious for a batman. Still Bale owns in whatever he does, and misses Cruse is a cutie.
Excellent movie. Agree it is the best batman movie.
In my opinion this is the second best movie made of modern times. Just behind Shawshank Redemption. Great action, great cast/acting, great effects, great story. Something for everyone. The girlfriend enjoyed this even though she doesn't like action or superhero movies.
The absolute best of ANY of the Batman movies to date.
im so ready for dark night... bring it on, batman begins is probably, no, definitley - my favourite batman movie so far
One of the better Superhero movies!
One of best adaptions of a superhero comic book. Unlike most of these types of movies, the charactarisation and special effects are so understated that you feel you are watching an adult drama. Bale is great as the tormented Batman.
A clever reconstruction of the way the hero was established. But he will never equal Superman.
Well done storyline, filling you in on how Batman evolved. Good how it ties some of the other movie's details into the plot. Good acting and great effects. Gotta get me one of them batmobiles!
If only all of the batman movies had been as realistic & action packed as these. Really enjoyed this one
Overall excellent value for money. The movie puts a serious note on the Batman story, making it far more enjoyable than the original TV series.
this is very different and a more updated batman.I enjoyed it very much.Great story line.
I rather enjoyed this movie. It was different to the other Batman movies of the past. The action scenes were very good. If you're a Batman fan, you'll enjoy it!
Great movie. Christian Bale is HOT!!
The best Batman movie I have seen. Even more thrilling than the 1989 version. The villians are shady and disturbing without being overt and don't take over the movie. Bale is excellent.
If you like Batman then you will love this one, it tells you how batman came too who he is, this should have been told from the start of all the Batman movies, I've seen this movie before and wanted to see it again, well worth watching
If the guy who made Memento can't make Batman interesting to me then no one can.
I didn't think this franchise needed another movie least (given Burton's semi-canonical 2 movie offering in the early 90s)
Nolans film is plausible restrained and almost sensitive. ultimately the most realistic and tastefull Batman to date looking forward to more
Probably THE best batman. Fantastic
Throughly enjoyed it. Rented it as a family movie mainly for the kids but I enjoyed it more than them. I felt it was entaining from beginning to end
The storyline in this movie was to me better than the first two Batman movies (the only ones I have seen so far). It traces back to his childhood - sometimes in flashback - to give reasons for the origin of The Bat. Very enjoyable Comicbook fare with good action and good actors.
This relaunching of the Batman franchise takes us back to how Bruce Wayne became Batman. It explains who trained him, where he got his gadgets and how he built the batcave. The whole cast does an excellent job with Liam Neeson mentoring another movie hero (feel the force young Bruce). I would have liked to see more of Cillian Murphy as the Scarecrow, but aside from that this more realistic, less cartoony version of the Dark Knight is very good. Christian Bale is signed for 2 more Batflix, having seen the new interpretation, I can't wait to see where it goes from here.
Really enjoyed it, better then I had expected!
Pretty ordinary. Acting was average at best. Was expecting a lot more
This certainly wasn't as good as the 'other' Batman movies....Liam Neeson was a surprise and was the most 'believable' character along with Michael Caine. Christian Bale and Katie Holmes were shallow....next?
Fantastic - Christian BALE is a revelation as Batman. High quality supporting cast also contribute to this excellent entertainment. Sorry Val (Kilmer) & Michael (Keaton) - Mr BALE is the Batman we had to have. First rate and thoroughly recommended !!!!!!!!
I wasn't sure if I had seen this movie or not so I requested to see it. I had actually seen it on Foxtel but I did enjoy viewing it again. It is an interesting movie in the fact it isn't all feel good and furry. It is nice to see the dark side of "good". I would view it again.
Very enjoyable, light entertainment
This movie fills in the gaps behind the story of how Batman came to be. It is fully action packed with a simple plot. Great one for Batman fans. It is predictable in spots and that takes some shine away from this otherwise solid entertainer.
Almost the equal of the 1989 Batman. Great performances all around, but someone please shoot the cameraman.
Forget about any other Batman movie you may have seen. It is so different, exciting on the move always
Great support cast of Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman and Liam Neeson. If we had a larger TV screen, I would have enjoyed more of the special effects.
good value, sound explanation to the original comic story line, better than the other Batman movies. Entertaining escapism, well acted good stunts, suitable for young teenagers.
Great movie, nothing like what i expected.
Poor old story, underperformed actors
If comparing with all previous batman movie sagas, I would say that this film has earned itself to be claimed as the best batman movie (of course by me).
This film is real, and most of all believable. The emotion and the tone of movies are great and solid. But it raises one issue to wonder "who cast Katie Holmes?"
Great action movie with a good cast and a good storyline, Heaps of action throughout the movie, an enjoyable movie with the batman series getting back to its roots instead of the dodgy comedy series it ended up before. A must for all action fans.
Excellent! (except for the Batmobile - can anyone see a problem with leading with unprotected tyres into hostile situations?)
did not realise it was animation.
The best of the Batman fils so far.
GREAT movie! The most serious Batman movie made but a good story revealing the origins of the Batman legend. Christian Bale is the best Batman ever with Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Katie Holmes and Gary Oldman completes an excellent cast.
great storyline which is well written and quite fascinating. Definately the best of the Batman movies.
No coarse language or sex scenes, just a good yarn.
I enjoyed it.
this movies is much better movie batman has really become more himself that he was really scare but his fear from bats and then batman comes out fighting for the bad crimes.
The action sequences were great and the story was exciting
Batman seems to be a dark subject for makers and this was no different however it did throw a different light onto how the character originated.
Very good movie, shows the dark side of batman. Nice, flowing story.
The best one out off all the batman series throughly enjoyed it
Excellent, great story line and lead into next movie well.
A great movie! Christian Bale is superb, as one would expect. I haven't seen him in a bad movie yet. It was great to learn about the beginning of Batman. Wonderfully cast, great special effects and a storyline that kept you rivetted to the screen. A must see for lovers of good adventure movies, especially if you are a Batman fan.
It was great to find out the beginnings of Batman. I found this movie more to my liking and more enjoyable then the previous Batman movies as it had more of a story to it. Christian Bale is fantastically cast as Batman. Katie Holmes is cast wrongfully. There just isn't any sparks or chemistry between the pair. Loved Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine in their respective roles. Overall must see entertainment at least once.
Five out of five, what more do you need to know.
Better than the other Batman movies. Great cast.
Excellent movie. I think it was the best one out of the Batman series!!
Best Batman adventure yet ...
Awesome!!!! My favourite Batman movie.
We loved it. It answers all the questions you always wanted to know.
Without a doubt the best movie of the Batman saga. They have really captured the essence of 'BATMAN'. Simply outstanding, well done.
Great cast, very believable.
Could be movie of the year, by far the best batman movie.
I thought the story was great, loved the action and special effects, and there were bits of good thought-provoking stuff underneath.
If you enjoyed the X-Men films, you'll probably enjoy this too.
