Oh I understand, I guess I see how others won't like many of those elements but none of them bother me. They did say 'fear' a lot but I didn't have an issue with it and I'll agree that the fighting was better in TDK(and it's amazing in TDKR). I just don't think any film gives us a better understanding of Bruce Wayne than this one.
I was about 12 or 13 when I first saw Begins, I remember sitting in that darkened theater and witnessing the greatest spectacle I'd ever seen. No other movie has come close to matching that. I don't quite feel the same way about Begins now, I recognize TDK as a far better movie but I still love this one.
