Batman Begins Synopsis

As the title suggests, this movie goes back to the beginning and explains the hows and why of Bruce Wayne's transformation from Troubled Rich Guy to Gotham City Superhero. This time the man in the cape is played by Christian Bale to good effect. Darker in tone than the original Batman movie, it is nonetheless an fun way to spend two hours and twenty minutes.
