I'll join the vast majority of film buffs and movie goers in stating that both Nolan Batman films outclass anything Marvel or Darkhorse have ever put to screen.

It's common sense that The Dark Knight is in a whole another level compared to this,ok, i agree. BUT i really do think Batman Begins is a outstanding movie that doesn't get enough credit. It paved te way to a classic and constructed Batman character in the best way i can imagine. Props to the Bat!

Could we maybe get a credit for Liam Neeson in here?

Rich complexity, phenomenal depth, iconic texture, all things that describes Nolan's instant classic that he gave to cinema.

I find this film to be the weakest in Nolan's trilogy. Despite that, it's an amazing, groundbreaking comic book film that explores the psyche of Bruce Wayne like no other Batman film had done prior to this one. No wait, scratch that, it explored the psyche of Bruce Wayne like no other comic book film had ever done with any character ever before, period. Phenomenal performances all around, by a pitch perfect cast. Perhaps the two most underrated being Liam Neeson and Cillian Murphy. And also, the score...that damn score. Hans Zimmer is a damn genius!

Congratulations to Christ-opher Johnathan James Nolan for holding back not one, but TWO CBM trilogies from taking its crown. TDK trilogy is STILL the King!!!

It's 101 now. Should be higher than Temple of Doom, but I still think it's a deserved spot.
