I went to the show for the first time since Kill Bill Vol. 1. I saw Batman Begins yesterday and I though it was a great film. It seemed like it was a movie that was taken off the pages of DC's Detective Comics. It was closer to the comic books than any other Batman movie ever made.
In fact this film was a little closer to real life than the others. There were great scenes of Gotham City. Some of these scenes were filmed in Chicago. The bridges were Chicago bridges along the Chicago River. This film seemed to have been taken right off the pages of comic books.
Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Liam Neeson, and Morgan Freeman all were great in there roles and Christian Bale made for a great hero. His lady was Katie Holmes, she plays Rachel a childhood friend and Gotham District Attorney. A worthwile effort and as of this moment as I type this the top movie in the country. I have hopes and I'm sure it is reality, that there will be a sequel.
