Since Batman’s resurrection as a major-motion-picture in 1989, the capped crusader origin has been largely unexplored. Enter Batman Begins. Avoiding the campiness of Batman films past, this epic follows angry and confused billionaire Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) from his parents death to League of Shadows combat training in Asia and back to Gotham City. Lined with dry humor, the film addresses questions of corporate greed, the vulnerability of the world’s biggest city and why Bruce Wayne would take on the persona of a crime fighting bat in the first place. The borderline, all-star cast is fantastic, most notable being Gotham City herself. Director Christopher Nolan has darkly and masterfully set up the ground work for new franchise.
