Batman Begins



Title: Batman Begins
Directed by:
Christopher Nolan
Written by:
Christopher Nolan, David S. Goyer
Year: 2005

To begin with, I do not like super heroes, so I do not expect much from any Batman film, especially since he is not the kind of super hero I would choose if forced to pick one. Furthermore, I normally do not enjoy action films as such, especially if they have no truly unique feature (like The Matrix, for instance). That being said, I liked Batman Begins. It is an excellent action film and manages to approach the super hero bit in a down-to-earth fashion I quite enjoyed.

Why? Photography and directing are masterful, to say the least. This film breathes quality in every possible manner. Additionally, I think the main actors perform their roles more than adequately, especially Christian Bale (as Bruce Wayne) and Michael Caine (Alfred).

So why not more than four snails? Well, this is still an action film about a super hero, and as I said in the introduction to this review, this is normally not at all my cup of tea. However, if i am again forced to make a choice, this is the kind of action film I will choose. Even though I still think many aspects of Batman are silly, he is still portrayed in a quite interesting way in this film. So, thumbs up for Batman Begins. Really.

    Down to earth? Han går på NINJASKOLA. The Dark Knight är mycket snyggare, dessutom, även om den är utdragen på flera ställen och försöker krysta fram spänning flera gånger med samma usla medel… hm…

    … men fortfarande. Jag tycker biten där de bygger dräkten i den här filmen är rätt OK, men vad gäller resten av hans superheroism så går han fortfarande på NINJASKOLA. De säger till och med ninja i -filmen-.

    Ja, jag gillar ninjor, okej? Jag vet att det är nittiotal att gilla ninjor, men det ger jag fan i. Men skämt åsido menade jag att down to earth som i att det handlar om honom som person mer om en superhjälte som kan springa snabbare än tåget, har värmesyn och är osårbar. Bara för att ta ett exempel.
