1. Gotham: Gotham City in Batman Begins is perfect, just perfect. The scenery, the atmosphere, the people, the criminals, everything is just outstanding. That's Gotham. What do we got in TDK ? A fecking random big city, too clean and bright for my liking. That's not Gotham. Not sure why they change the city's tone. 2. Batman: In Begins, Nolan really nailed Batman. He took what he'd learned from Ra's (make yourself more than just a man), he always scared the **** out of criminals before beating them. He was truly a dark, intimidating creature that scare the criminals. That's the best depiction of Comic Batman (feck you Ben Affleck) that I can ever asked. Even the voice was perfectly done. In TDK, Batman's still good, but for me it was such a let down from Begins. 3. The production design. In Begins, without seeing Batman, you can still feel that this is a Batman movie. Itbrilliantly captured the feel and atmosphere of Batman and his story, to an extend that I feeled like watching Batman Animated Series at some point. The film feels dark, creepy, haunting and mysterious. TDK ? Not so much. Dont get me wrong. TDK is my favorite CBM and one of the best films of 2000s. I just feel that it could have been much better in portraying Batman, Gotham and its atmosphere.
