Batman Begins sucked

17 Jun

This movie was horrible, from christian bales ridiculous “batman voice” to the amazingly dull portrayal of Bruce Wayne..this movie reeked.

The villains were super dull, the fight scenes so horribly edited and chopped up all you see are blurs until christian bale stands over his defeated opponents.

Compare that to the superb fight scenes in EQUILIBRIUM…there was no need to chop up the fight scenes Bale can hold his own.

And what a terrible waste of Gary Oldman’s talents. Choosing him to play the comatose-inspiring Commissioner Gordon is kind of like using a Ferrari as a paperweight..why????? Oldman could have carried the entire film with his own portrayal of a villain.

Michael Cain was cool, but his cockney accent completley ruined the dignity of the Alfred character. I was half expecting him to sweep some chimneys with mary poppins half the time. Isn’t he a good enough actor to choose a more dignified English dialect than Cockney?

The romance was dull and uninteresting. I miss Tim Burton’s version. He got it right. This movie was so lame I would have walked out if not for the movie ripping me of my will to live, let alone the will to stand up and leave.

    Man, I completely disagree. This was one of the best comic book movies ever made. The feeling of batman was there, the history. It would of been nice to see a bit more of the fight scenes – but this is not a martial arts movie, so I can forgive that a bit…the movie rocked.

    Wow, you are way off this time
    Man I have always trusted and agreed with your movie reviews, but between this review and your review of ROTS (Star Wars), you are WAY off
    This was the greatest batman movie ever. The fight scenes were less entertaining than equilibrium, but that is part of the feel.
    Batman is supposed to be ninja like. The idea of his whole training with Ras Al Ghul is that invisibilty can be achieved with fast movements and distraction. It would be strange and overly deliberate if you could clearly see everything Batman was doing. he’s supposed to be swift and mysterious
    It was a very dark movie that went into the origins of Batman.
    The villains weren’t the focus of the movie, Batman was. It wasn’t the kind of movie that was supposed to awe you with action, it was supposed to draw you into who Batman was (hence the title Batman Begins)
    That was a great movie. Honestly, screw Tim Burton’s version. The focus in those movies was on the villains. The only good batman movie before this was Batman returns and that was because of the chemistry between Batman and Catwoman.
    Finally, this a restart to the batman series. The next movies they can focus on the Joker and other villains and how they become batman’s nemesis (sp? for the plural). But the focus on this movie was SUPPOSED to be on Batman.
    Either way, you’re way off this time bro. That and ROTS were damn good movies.
    My favorite part of the movie is that they lose the Narrows (Ghettos) of Gotham City. They make no bones about it. No happy ending there. The convicts and everyone in the narrows are all crazy and going to kill eachother. Nice and dark ending, the way its supposed to be.

      Re: Wow, you are way off this time
      i have no qualms with the ninja training, too bad you dont see him use any of it during the actual bat fight scenes.

        Re: Wow, you are way off this time
        You do, thats the exact reason why it was the kind of clear cut action that equilibrium was. It was dark and shadowy and hard to see exactly what was going on.
        Not the most entertaining action, but i think it had the desired effect.
        I think you’re alone on this one man. That was a helluva movie.

    I’m sorry you didn’t like it. I thought it was AWESOME!!

    I loved it, but I’ve always viewed batman as a pyschological thing more of an action thing.

    nooo!!!! i havent even read what you posted. but you were right about star wars. batman is supposed to be awesome damn it!

    you’re high on drugs. this was the best batman movie, with the only *possible* contender being Burton’s 1st. I agree with the quibble about the tight-shot quick-edited fighting, but that can be forgiven for plot, story, characterization, *actual* acting, etc. The voice as batman isn’t what i woulda done, but it’s subjective, and i’m not gonna let that spoil an otherwise masterful movie.

      nah
      Batman isn’t about action or supernatural powers. The movie was an accurate depiction of who the comic book character truly was, not some hollywood created version.

        Re: nah
        and as we all know batman was actually trained as a ninja by raz al ghul in the comics, and Joe Chill was caught and killed. Also just like in the comics, batman can fly.(sarcasm) Yes this truly was a completley accurate depiction.

        Re: nah
        This was a very boring movie and I agree with the original reviewer. I think it was a complete waste of time. I had bad feelings about this and had major hesitations about seeing it. Now that I have seen this horrid Batman movie, I wish I hadn’t.
        Batman Begins was probably the worst Batman movie I have ever seen. At least the most boring. Batman 1989, Batman Returns and even Batman Forever are much better movies.

        Re: nah
        Your kidding right? This is the first batman that happens to go in depth with the plot as well as bruce’s life, both private and public. It is much more true to the comic book story board. The ’89 batman was similar to this, but soon Hollywood wanted to make a cash cow out of the name and was pawning off Batman movies with no substance, just flashy celebs (Arnold Schwarzenegger, George Clooney, Jim Carrey) The writing degraded rapidly with each release. Batman Begins restores the reality to our Dark Knight, and allows the audience to connect with the Hero, and understand his passion. Of course, everyone is entitled to their own views, but by calling this movie “the worst Batman movie” is a little harsh. Remember the 1966 “Batman”, I enjoy retro shows and movies, but come on… Adam West is great in 30 minute doses but 2 hours of him acting? I can’t take it

    I only saw this movie about a year ago. I’m not a comic book/batman fanboy at all. This was one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen, absolutely dreadful. I think the main reason I hated it were becasue I was told that it’s a 5 star film, even if you don’t like comic books. The whole movie seemed like Nolan was trying to find plausable reasons as to why anyone with ninja training would chose to fight crime in an animal suit in the first place. It’s Like a grown adult caught playing with a childrens toy and him trying to explain why he’s enjoying it through logical means. Oh and a tank-thing that jumps over rooftops..please.
