It's like someone said earlier in this thread; Batman was more successful at feeling like a cohesive movie than Begins was when it comes to consistency. In the sense that Begins had some weird tonal shifts sometimes which almost made it seem like you were watching 3 different movies at times. It wasn't as consistent in terms of tone as Batman was. Both are cream of the crop representations of the spirit of the comics though.
That's finally the thing. For the tone Begins proposed, the one-liners Goyer insisted in showhorning came up horribly. Maybe in a different movie that wouldn't have been so annoying.
