Danny Webster’s review published on Letterboxd:
WHERE ARE THE OTHER DRUGS GOING? I'M BATMAN!!!!
As an origin story, Batman Begins is seriously good. It's such a engrossing comic book film it manages to drag the viewer into the amplified city of Gotham City. Despite this excellent amplification of various aspects, of which you'd expect from a comic book film, there is an attempt at a realism which is done to a really good effect as well.
I am by no means Christopher Nolan's biggest fan, but this is one of his best in my opinion and it really is an exciting and superb film. I also liked the little hints and tips to the universe surrounding Batman as well as Bruce Wayne's character, Christian Bale being particularly excellent as the clandestine Wayne, whom to me, has a mysterious aura similar to that of Batman.
