Default Re: Batman Begins Best Origin Movie ever ?

I still think nothing touches Begins.

Man Of Steel is fantastic, ive seen it 3 times so far. But as much as I love all the action and the story elements, it's still insanely busy as an origin film. The pacing and writing to Begins and all the nostalgic memories of seeing it in my teens just puts it above MOS/Donner's Superman/Spider-Man/TASM/Iron Man.

The breathing room is key in why Begins wins (in comparison to MOS which I feel the pacing worked just fine for that kind of sci-fi movie). The originality and emotion is also why it's better than any origin film that has come since. Marvel or DC.

I didn't like Captain America so I don't see how it comes even close to anything like BB.
