Synopsis: Christopher Nolan's film explores the origins of the Batman legend and the Dark Knight's emergence as a force for good in Gotham.

Review: Finally a movie that truly lives up to the Batman franchise! This movie was so satisfying when compared to the four movies that have previously been made. It is good not only as a means of explaining much of the Batman mythology—why is he who he is—but also as a movie—the direction, acting, casting, plot, writing, all of it really is good.
Christian Bale does a superb job as the young Bruce Wayne. He really flexes his acting chops in this role, because as in any super hero movie he must play the hero and his alter ego. Katie Holmes offers small but crucial role as a Rachel who is a steady moral compass that encourages Bruce in the right direction. Michael Caine is perfect as the bulter Alfred—staunch supporter of young Bruce. Gary Oldman for once plays a normal character, but with his usual skill. The movie offers the gambit of villains (it is a super hero movie, after all): Tom Wilkinson as a sleazy crime boss, Ken Watanabe as a laconic martial arts master, Cillian Murphy as a disturbing psychologist, and Liam Neeson as the frustratingly heartless former teacher of Bruce Wayne.
Christopher Nolan, director of Memento and Insomnia, knows dark. He skillfully executed this huge project, keeping the tone and flow of the movie perfect, without making is slow or overly action-packed.
Overall this movie is worth seeing, and highly worth seeing in the theaters because it really is a big-screen kind of movie.
