  1. This is probably my favourite film of the trilogy. I do love an origin story! One thing I would have liked though is more Scarecrow! As one of the main villains, he’s barely in the film at all, especially with the mask on. Still, it’s a great start to the trilogy.

  2. It was really funny because my roommate gave me this movie to watch on the same day you reviewed it (twilight zone music!). I’ll admit, superhero movies are not really my thing and I was worried that I was just going to make fun of the fact that he was a bat-man, but it turned out better than I thought it would. I also really liked Alfred and he was like the best guy ever. Katie Holmes annoyed me though. She got slightly less annoying when she was defending that little kid (who was adorable by the way), but then she got annoying again when she was like “tell me your name, Batman!” And I was just like “stop…” All in all it was a minor thing, but she really did bother me. That was basically my only complaint though.
    The best part was the cast. It was cool to see all these famous actors like Liam Neeson, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, and Tom Wilkinson in a movie together that I was not previous aware they were all in. I also was really impressed by Christian Bale. I feel like it would hard to make Batman look legit but he totally pulled it off. And it was pretty funny when he was pretending to be Bruce Wayne the jerkface because you knew he was actually a good guy.
    I hope I can see the rest of them when you’re still doing this!!

    • Glad to hear you enjoyed it, and what great timing! This film really does have an amazing cast and they all pull together so well. If you liked this one, you’ll probably love the rest of the trilogy. Better check it out soon. 😉

  3. In complete agreement with the first comment. Batman Begins is a great film, but could have used much more Scarecrow. Loved Cillian Murphy’s presence in the film, both with and without the mask.

    And I still get chills every time Batman delivers the line: “I won’t kill you. But I don’t have to save you.”
