Not some campy over the top fallacy, but the real, solitary yet inside, psychotic yet innocent Bruce Wayne. And he did it in a way that both made it incredibly believable, as well as inexplicably likeable.
While I disagree, Keaton performance is great, is just that is not something that I prefer. For me, Bale performance nails Bruce Wayne as a whole: the facade, the monster and the real man.


A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy's shoulders to let him know that the world hadn't ended.
