At last, I got to watch “Batman Begins”, a movie I’ve been wanting to see even before its release.
Before its release, I wasn’t expecting something really big, but then the reviews started coming in and they were positive, which made me want to see it even more.
And well, I wasn’t dissapointed at all, I have to say that I think this is one of the best Batman movies up to now.
As with all superhero movies, the part I love most is the beginning, so this movie hit that spot with me, and then went on developing the character in an interesting way.
The thing about Batman is that he’s unlike other superheroes who either come from another planet or go through a freak accident that gives them supernatural powers. Batman is like every one of us, he’s a normal human being, who is using an alter ego called “Batman” and a bunch of cool gadgets.
So, really Batman is closer to James Bond than he is to your regular superhero, and he’s easier to connect to.
Christian Bale is a good actor and he did a nice job as Batman. He was a good casting choice and I hope he goes on with the role in the future movies.
Something I found amusing in this movie is the name of Liam Neeson’s character “Ras Al Ghul”, which is in Arabic, and means “The head of the monster”.
My rating for this movie would be: 8/10.
