movie summary: After training with his mentor, Batman begins his war on crime to free the crime-ridden Gotham City from corruption that the Scarecrow and the League of Shadows have cast upon it. (www.imdb.com)
my thoughts: The Batman franchise had seen many low points during the 1990’s, then Christopher Nolan came along with the idea of a reboot. Batman Begins is considered one of the better movies ever written about the caped crusader. Everyone may know the story of Bruce Wayne and why he became Batman, but this movie focuses on his journey of self discovery, ninja training, and the creation of Batman. He faces off against a corrupt Gotham Police Force, Scarecrow and Ra’s Al Ghul while trying to save the city. This is a must watch for any Batman fan, comic book fan, and anyone who wants a better understanding of who Christian Bale is as the Dark Knight.
my star rating: 9 out 10
