Now, I think we all gave a pass to Batman Begins for being a serious take on the franchise, but looking back on it it's not that great. The fighting is pretty poor and the villains were not really that interesting.
But it's probably the most detailed superhero origin story to date, what with depicting everything down to buying supplies. The rough early days. Too bad they decided the days were going to stay mostly that rough forever because that's "realistic".
True.I gave it a pass originally,thinking "Heck,it's the early years.Sure, things will get more fantastic and sophisticated in the sequels."Didn't quite work out that way,but it's still one of my favorites.
