I'd have to agree with that statement metal_face. I've seen many movies this year but none have really stood out that I would remember them days (or even hours) after I saw them. Batman Begins was excellent. The casting was supberb. Michael Caine stole every scene he was in as Alfred. Morgan Freeman's role wasn't too substantial but he was great, as usual. Other supporting roles were filled perfectly as well. Christian Bale had a daunting task of creating a younger Bruce Wayne and making the audience believe he is Batman. He pulled it off, hands-down. He had the right combination of vulnerability, determination and humor to make it real. I hope he returns to the role should further Batman films be made.Originally Posted by metal_face
Also, I don't know how many of you are fans of Cillian Murphy, who played nutjob Dr. Jonathan Crane, but he is an amazing actor, see; 28 Days Later and On the Edge. After I saw the film I read he was considered for the role of Batman but as good an actor he is, I couldn't picture him as Batman. Bruce Wayne maybe but not Batman. At any rate, he was perfect in the role as Dr. Crane.
