‘Batman Begins’ reviews

John’s “Batman Begins” flashback review, Jan. 14, 2019

***

“Batman Begins” – This prequel sets aside the grandiose stunts long enough that we actually get a sense of who Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) is – like Dawson Leery, he grew up with Katie Holmes next door. When director Christopher Nolan (“Memento”) introduces us to Wayne Manor, the Batcave and the Batmobile, it feels like we’re seeing it all for the first time.
