Batman Begins – Dark, just how I like it..

When fate prevents him from avenging the deaths of his parents, young Bruce Wayne (Bale) flees to Asia where he seeks counsel from a dangerous ninja cult leader known as Ra’s al Ghul (Watanabe). When he returns, Bruce finds that Gotham City has become overrun with crime and corruption, and that there are forces at work trying to remove him from his inherited place as the owner of Wayne Industries. Discovering a cave under Wayne Manor, Bruce assumes a new identity as a secret detective and guardian of the people of Gotham City against the criminals that plague them…

Batman has gone back to it’s roots, this is a gritty, dark movie with an impoverished crime ridden Gotham dominated by drug lords, evil-doers and corrupt officials.

There is a star studded cast, I was like, wow another famous person, and another and another and another (Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, Ken Watanabe), and so many brits?!

It’s already hoisted itself into the number 64 spot on the top 250 in the first week!

Not surprisingly it’s a far far better movie than the previous few lame Batman attempts (Batman and Robin, Batman Forever *yawn). It’s actually a good movie.

The original Batman was a classic! All the back from 1989. With Jack Nicholson as the joker. After that was Batman Returns in 1992, with Michelle Pfeieffer as Catwoman…meow! I loved that, but the film itself wasn’t so great. Both were pretty gritty, dark movies, staying in line with the original comics, Batman Returns was a bit cheesier, after that it went downhill fast with Mr Freeze..

What most people don’t realise is a lot of these comics are actually very violent and adult in nature addressing serious issues in a form more acceptable to the mainstream..

The action through-out was great, good fight scenes, nice gadgets, nice introduction to all the things we know so well about Batman.

The only thing that ruined it for me, was as usual the hotdog cheese American lovey dovey suck my hairy nut sack ending, SHOVE IT UP YOUR ASS..

Anyway, if you haven’t, go and watch it.

I give it a good 8/10 (9 if it wasn’t for the ending).

    A lot of good lines though in the movie. That’s what a hero movie should be about. Dark and just the way it would play well in reality.

    Movie rocks. The only thing that irked me was that during the fight scenes, it looked like the cameraman was filming way too close to the actors, made it look really confusing… and christian bale… ai-yai-yai-yai-yai, he can come fuck me ANYTIME!! :p

    That’s the funniest description of a movie ending that I’ve ever seen…:)

    From the pictures, I kinda feel the costumes looks kinda weird – especially the cowl. I can only hope that turned out well in the movie. 🙂

    The movie was good.. but it doesn’t change the fact that Batman and Robin might be gay partners… XD

  9. vlad June 21, 2005 at 4:29 am #

    Gay partners? You got it all wrong my friend. Robin is definitely Batman’s sex slave.

    Just went mah, watched 2 actually, another review coming tommorow..

    Was planning to at the weekend, but no one to take me out mah, paiseh too busy being celebrities.

  11. ShaolinTiger June 21, 2005 at 6:07 am #

    Yeah, I noticed that too, it made it a bit blur at times.

    Which was a shame, as they were moving really well and using some nice styles.

  12. ShaolinTiger June 21, 2005 at 6:08 am #

    Hahaha, glad someone appreciates it 🙂

    It made me laugh too when I read it back again.

    Those endings really IRK me tho, LOTR was the same thing, the fake ass americano double mozerella cheese ending ruined it for me.

  13. ShaolinTiger June 21, 2005 at 6:11 am #

    Nah I found the costumes pretty good, you see how it comes to life too, pretty interesting, even some joke about buying mass produced stuff from China 🙂

  15. tormentt June 21, 2005 at 9:09 am #

    The ending is the beginning to part 2 what. no meh? or do you mean the lame ass ending before that ending?

  16. ShaolinTiger June 21, 2005 at 9:20 am #

    The ending is the beginning to the original Batman with the Joker.

    The second one is Penguin and Cat Woman.

    I was watching b.begins in cinema, and there was this kid sitting behind me. I hate kids in cinema so i was like “fuckkk….” Then halfway thru the movie he started crying because it was too scary (scarecrow) and the parents had to bring him out. I just hope that nobody robe them and shot’em dead.

    I agree with you on all points. Including the mushy lovie-dovie crap that they added in the end. It looked and sounded so hookey it turned my stomache. why oh why add that to the end. hell i think she should have died, just more reasons for the dark warrior to be pissed off lol!
    and ps….love your blog!
