Batman Begins

Just a quick post today about the television premier of Batman Begins on ITV1 tomorrow night at 8.30pm. I know this is not classic Batman however this film does explain the story of the origins of Batman.

The film received top ratings when it was released back in 2005. I have to say this is actually my least favourite Batman film however the majority of crictics rave over it. Here is the film symopsis from the itv.com website:

“Action adventure reboot of the comic book story, telling the story of how Bruce Wayne came to be Batman. Having watched his parents murdered in front of him, the boy Wayne endures a stint in an Asian prison and is then trained in the martial arts. On his return to his native Gotham City, he takes on his own new persona to fight the city’s organised crime. With Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes, and Gary Oldman. (2005)”
