Efter det brutale mord på hans forældre rejser den desillusionerede industri-arving Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) rundt i verden for at lære at forstå, hvordan den kriminelle hjerne fungerer. Han begynder snart på sin rejse at bekæmpe uretfærdighed og skabe frygt blandt dem, der udnytter de svage - samtidig med at han kæmper mod sine egne dæmoner. Da han vender tilbage til Gotham City, opdager han, at byen flyder med organiseret kriminalitet, småforbrydere og moralsk forrådnelse. Bruce slår sig sammen med politibetjenten Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) og den offentlige anklager Rachel Dawes (Katie Holmes), oged deres hjælp og en masse støtte fra sin altid trofaste butler Alfred (Michael Caine), samt Lucius Fox (Morgen Freeman) fra Wayne Enterprises, skaber Bruce sit alter-ego: Batman, en kappeklædt hævner, der bruger sin styrke, sit intellekt og en imponerende række avancerede high-tech gadgets våben i kampen mod det onde...

Just when you though that the Batman franchise was dead and buried--certainly after the abomination that was 1997?s Batman & Robin--along comes director Christopher Nolan to brilliantly bring it all back to life with the astonishingly strong Batman Begins.

Nolan, whose curriculum vitae already features Memento and Insomnia, focuses his attention where films in the franchise haven?t gone before--by examining that character of Batman himself. Thus, the story here is the genesis of the character, from the death of Bruce Wayne?s parents, harrowing training with the mysterious League of Shadows, right through to the Dark Knight?s first appearances on the street of a crime-ridden, moody Gotham City.

Nolan plays several trump cards in his take on the Batman legacy, and none pay off quite so handsomely as his casting. Christian Bale is an immense force in the dual role of Bruce Wayne and Batman, bringing a brooding anger and genuine unease to the Batsuit. He?s backed with strong turns from Tom Wilkinson, Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Gary Oldman, and Cillian Murphy as the unstable Scarecrow.

In spite of a last twenty minutes that can?t quite sustain the tone of what?s gone before, Batman Begins is a major achievement, and one of the finest superhero movies to date. Easily the best of the Dark Knight?s big screen adventures, it manages to be a blockbuster film that?s unpredictable, compulsive, superb to look at and well worth many repeated viewings. A staggering achievement, particularly considering the state the Batman franchise had got itself into.--Simon Brew
