Re: Batman Begins Best Origin Movie ever ?

Honestly, I kind of imagined it to look like Inception or even The Dark Knight.
But Nolan hadn't developed his skill as a director at that point, and BB ended up looking a lot smaller-scale than I would have liked. The cinematography and general feel of the film was more akin to Nolan's low budget Insomnia than his later epics.
And it's really a shame, as I honestly believe BB if remade today (and of course rewritten by Jonathan Nolan) could be an incredibly expensive and epic film that would have people leaving the theater in awe like TDK did.
I don't think Begins needed to be more epic. I thought the atmosphere and environment was perfect. The scenery, landscape, I loved in all. In fact I preferred it more in Begins than in TDK. I understand some people like things more epic though.
