    Story is good, action is good, bat cave is cool, bat mobile is sick and the bat toys are dope, just a bad ass movie in general.

    Sorry bros, but I have to totally disagree. Very disappointing. Maybe I went to see it with high expectations, but I feel asleep during the movie twice. I haven't ever done that before in a movie. I was too long, first of all, and Christian Bale was the worst batman I have ever seen. What was with his voice when he was in costume?? Really retarded. Quite the lacking movie in my opinion. They have to stop making prequals all together. The last Star Wars wasn't all that impressive either. Whats next? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?

    Are you serious? They always alter the voice when he's in costume, they did the same thing for all the other batman movies. And you thought the last star wars sucked??? I'm sorry but i must have a completely different view of movies than you...

    I'm not a big batman fan actually, but the movie was cool and def better than any of the other batman movies. It was dark like the first one, but more badass/vengeful.

    Saw it last night. I thought it was pretty slow at first, dialogue was TERRIBLE! But once the story got going I thought it was pretty good overall, liked it better than the other batman movies, better story anyway. Scarecrow was a pretty freaky villain. I think Katie Holmes sucked though, should have picked a different actress for that part.

    I think the best Batman was when Micheal Keaton did it He just had the whole batman thing going on IMO.
    I will probably see it though as the special effects look amazing and i have always been abit of a bat fan

    IMO bale has it all over keaton as batman, he can look classy as bruce and still fit the part when he's fighting.

    Ya, I thought it was great. That actor has done a great job in every movie I have ever seen him. While I think keaton was the best batman, this guy did a tremendous job, he even tried to imitate keaton's batman voice.

    Btw, Jack Nicholson makes like 30% of all profit from every piece of batman related sales. that was part of his contract from the first batman. lol

    I am a comic book fan and this Batman was the only one that really stuck to the origin of the character. I think it's by far the best Batman movie and an entertaining movie in general.

    I agree. Would have been much better with a hotter actress. She's too plain.

    This movie is awesome. The first time I saw it, I was overly critical. I had kept hearing what a good movie it was and thus had extremely high expectations. Here are the things I didn't like about it the first time around:

    * I wanted it to be a tad bit more realistic (mostly regarding the fight sequences).
    * I didn't like a lot of the one liners that some of the supporting characters had (although I thought all of Bale's lines were great...and delivered perfectly).
    * I didn't like having my intelligence insulted. What I mean is that at the end, like three characters fully explain the plot to the audience...as if we haven't been paying attention for the entire movie.
    * I thought the tumbler was too unrealistic (but I later realized that it actually can jump 40 feet without a ramp in real life).

    When I saw the movie for a second time, I went into it being more aware that its a comic book movie. I didn't so much pay attention to the action as I did the story, and I tried to read more into all the underlying themes (fear, symbols, humanity of Batman/Bruce). Then it was awesome. Other comic book movies attempt to delve into the psyche of the character to reveal something about the hero, but none pull it off like Batman Begins.
