I always had a feeling, judging by the trailers
and the production crew, that Batman
Begins was going to be great and therefore save the Batman
films. Then I saw the special ten-minute clip from Batman Begins,
and was convinced this film had to be great. Now I have read some nice early
reviews from Batman Begins and know this film is great; and I haven't
even seen it yet.
Batman Begins Reviews
and Mrs Smith coming out this Friday and
War of the Worlds at the end of the month, Batman
Begins is one of the top anticipated films to see this summer [what
can I say, it is a great summer for films]. So, considering that its release
date is quickly approaching, I did a little looking around to catch the
early reviews for the film. All it took for me was to stumble across the
good people over at AICN
to get not one but two wonderful reviews for Batman Begins. As
usual, you can check out snippets below:
And I’d like to congratulate Warner Bros. and DC for not only making a great BATMAN film, but also for raising the stakes on how adult and affecting a comic book movie can be. Since 1997, Warner Bros. has taken a lot of sht from every comic fan on the planet, and for this particular moment, all of that should stop. BATMAN BEGINS is a potent piece of pop mythology, confident, commercial, and mainstream as hell, but not at all what I expected when I walked into the theater last Thursday night.
Well… I just got out of the BATMAN BEGINS screening and Holy Shit! This is the BATMAN movie we’ve been dreaming of for a long time. I know it is the Batman film I was dreaming of in May of 1988 when I read that script. Batman is scary. He’s scarier than the Scarecrow. Sure, the Scarecrow has his fear toxin… and when you see his face after the toxin got a hold of you… it’s scary, horrific and terrifying…
Not a bad start for Batman Begins reviews
at all. Any time you can get two people like Christopher Nolan and Christian
Bale together you have got to have something great. You can check out both
Batman Begins reviews in entirety over at AICN.
