Cover of Batman Begins (Widescreen Edition)


You’ve all no doubt heard of the movie Batman Begins, which starred Christian Bale, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Katie Holmes, Gary Oldman, Rutger Hauer and probably more. I mean, the movie is packed with more celebrities than a Beverly Hills Rehab center. You’ve heard of it right? I’m pretty sure most everyone who is alive and breathing has at least heard of it. You might be like me, and had never watched it, but you’ve heard of it. If you haven’t, you should come out from underneath your rock more often, the sun will do you good!

Anyway, the other night, I finally decided to sit down, and actually watch the movie. Why did I decide to watch it you ask? Various reasons, but one reason was because people kept telling me how great it was, and how it’s the best Batman movie ever created. Combining that, with my recent enjoyment of the game Batman: Arkham Asylum, I figured I would give it a shot.

So, I sat down and watched it. The special effects were good, and most of the acting wasn’t bad. For the most part, I was impressed. What I wasn’t too thrilled with was Christian Bale. I am sorry, but he made a horrible batman! I know, I am probably shooting myself in the foot with this entry, because I am well aware that the vast majority of the population thinks he’s the best batman ever.

Don’t get me wrong, he is a capable actor, and his “Bruce Wayne” is good, but his Batman is horrible! Especially his Batman voice. What’s up with that? He sounds more like Billy Bob Thornton in Sling Blade, than he did Batman.

Other than that, the movie was good. I wouldn’t say it was the best Batman movie. I think it’s sequel Dark Knight was better, and even better still was the original Batman movie with Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson.
