Re: Batman Begins is the greatest Batman Film to me.
The absence of police is understandable imo and explainable. The police appeared exactly 11 minutes after Jokers float first appeared in the shot, and when they appeared they appeared in full force, with lights etc. Thats a very fast reaction time considering mobilization of the forces against horde of gangsters with machine guns and choppers, and considering that Gotham is huge. And Joker never revealed the location of the parade, if so, people would be lined up for money right away, same with cops and media. he just said hes gonna have a parade and give out money, without details. But thats a suybject thats been very much debated by detractors of the movie. I dont want to open Pandoras box again
