Batman Begins – **1/2

Posted: July 24, 2012 in 2005, Action, Crime/Detective, Science Fiction, USA, XX1/2

With the new installment hitting the theaters this weekend, I felt like watching the first two episodes of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. Starting off with Batman Begins.

Couldn’t really remember much of the movie until I started watching it again and it all came back to me: the training in the Himalaya’s, the child trauma shown in flashback, the scarecrow gas masks and the weird hallucinations, Katie Holmes as a ‘tough’ lawyer and love interest, the dry one-liners of Morgan Freeman, etc… I just forgot how ‘dark’ the movie was and how chaotic the action scenes were filmed. I also forgot how emotionless Christian Bale interprets DC Comic’s most popular hero. And how a lot of stuff happens that just doesn’t make sense at all.

But I enjoyed it a lot, 7 years after the initial viewing, which makes this a good movie. Just not a great one.
