He's fought criminal masterminds like the Joker, Penguin, the Riddler, Mr. Freeze and many more. Now Batman's back on the big screen with the story of how his superhero days all began. Christian Bale has a mighty big cape to fill - find out if he manages to do it justice with Kidzworld's movie review!

Batman Begins - The Man Behind the Mask

Before Batman began his crusade for justice in Gotham City he was simply Bruce Wayne, a wealthy orphan looking for a purpose in his life. During his journey, Bruce is recruited by a renegade group called the League of Shadows. Far on top of an icy mountain, Bruce learns to hone his fighting skills and is put to the ultimate test when the League demands that he kill a prisoner they are holding. Instead, Bruce escapes and gets cracking on saving the city of Gotham by himself.



Batman Begins - Justice for All

Back in Gotham, Bruce gets to work on creating a secret disguise so he can do good throughout the town without ever being recognized. He decides to conquer his fear of bats by becoming one. Since he's the heir to a billion-dollar company, Bruce has access to a ton of cool gadgets that he uses to battle evil. One of the coolest things is the tank that he uses as his car. It can drive over other cars, blast holes in the sides of buildings and even fly from rooftop to rooftop!


Batman Begins - The Legend Continues

Batman Begins isn't your average Batman flick. It's a lot less colorful and cartoony than previous movies, but it's jam-packed with action. From samurai fights to crazy explosions, there's not a dull moment in this film. Christian Bale wears the mask well and luckily Katie Holmes doesn't have a huge role cuz her acting throughout the movie seemed a little forced. She's definitely no Kim Basinger (think back to the original Batman movie with Michael Keaton).


Batman Begins - DVD Features

The Batman Begins DVD comes in several versions (widescreen, full screen and deluxe edition). If you're looking to pick this movie up, go with the deluxe edition. It has tons of features (and the other versions don't have these extras). Get all the behind-the-scenes goodies like how they built sets, how the actors were cast, and why the batmobile looks so different this time around. There's an interactive comic book feature picture galleries and a Batman Begins game demo for your cell phone!

Batman Begins - Bottom Line

If you're a big comic book fan, or you're just looking for a flick with lots of action, Batman Begins should be on your movie list this summer. Sure Katie Holmes is a little annoying (I mean really, we know you're in love with Tom - stop talking about it!) but the ninjas, tanks and Batman antics make up for it!
