“Batman Begins at last penetrates to the dark and troubled depths of the Batman legend.” —Roger Ebert
In Nolan’s reboot of the infamous Batman franchise, he takes us out of Gotham to Asia to learn the real story of Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale). From his parentless childhood to an equally lonely adulthood wandering the world, Wayne unites with Asian guru Ra’s al Ghul (Ken Watanabe), who transforms him into a member of the League of Shadows. In this notably grittier Batman film, Wayne grapples with the burden of donning several masks, as he begins his one-man battle against crime. 2005, 140 minutes.
