Re: Anyone feel the same way...?
I remember leaving the theatre in 2005, and feeling a little disappointed. The whole movie just felt like one giant setup for the sequel. Nothing was that memorable about it. No wonder there was so little hype.
Christian Bale, who was supposed to be the perfect choice (and every fan wanted him in the role), actually played it in the most generic and uninteresting way imaginable. And the other cast weren't really much, either. Just famous actors phoning it in yet again.
There were a couple of things I liked about it, though, like the 'Blade Runner' style look of some of Gotham.
