Batman Starts discards the preceding 4 films in the series and recasts the Caped Crusader as a fearsome avenging angel. That's very good news, since the series, which had gotten off to a rousing commence beneath Tim Burton, had slowly dissolved into self-parody by 1997's Batman & Robin. As the title suggests, Batman Starts tells the story anew, when Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) flees Western civilization following the murder of his mothers and fathers. He is taken in by a mysterious teacher named Ducard (Liam Neeson in one more mentor part) and urged to turn into a ninja in the League of Shadows, but he rather returns to his native Gotham City solved to finish the mob rule that is strangling it. But are there forces even much more sinister at hand?
Cowritten by the staff of David S. Goyer (a veteran comic book writer) and director Christopher Nolan (Memento), Batman Starts is a welcome return to the grim and gritty edition of the Dark Knight, owing a fantastic credit card debt to the graphic novels that preceded it. It does not have the razzle dazzle, or the mass charm, of Spider-Man two (even though the Batmobile is great), and retelling the origin implies it starts little by little, like most "first" superhero movies. But it truly is surely the best Bat-film given that Burton's unique, and 1 of the best superhero movies of its time. Bale cuts a very good figure as Batman, powerful and dangerous but with some of the lightheartedness Michael Keaton brought to the character. Michael Caine supplies much of the film's humor as the family members butler, Alfred, and as the really like curiosity, Katie Holmes (Dawson's Creek) is astonishingly believable in her first grownup part. Also featuring Gary Oldman as the younger police officer Jim Gordon, Morgan Freeman as a Q-like gizmos specialist, and Cillian Murphy as the vile Jonathan Crane. --David Horiuchi

The first disc is stuffed out by the theatrical trailer and a Jimmy Fallon-starring Batman Starts spoof from the MTV Film Awards. The 2nd disc is composed of eight featurettes (about 105 minutes overall) on a selection of topics. "The Journey Starts" covers the early phases of the movie, such as the casting and how director/co-writer Christopher Nolan brought in co-writer David S. Goyer for his comic-book knowledge. "Shaping Brain and Physique" covers Christian Bale's fight education, and other featurettes go over the sets (the Batcave is proven being produced out of solid wood and sheets), the Batman costume, the Batmobile, the monorail sequence, and the dangers of filming in Iceland. All the driving-the-scenes featurettes are strong but relatively schedule, and while "The Journey Starts" is the widest overview, you will find not really any centerpiece documentary (all are 8 to 15 minutes, and you will find no Perform All option). Interviewees are inclined to be the same during: Nolan, Goyer, Bale (the only cast member to get much face time), and other crew members (it truly is great to hear from the stunt men and women).
Possibly much more intriguing to enthusiasts is "Genesis of the Bat," which covers the comic textbooks that affected the film, such as The Long Halloween, Neal Adams's Ra's Al Ghul from the '70s, Dennis O'Neill and Dick Giordano's The Man Who Falls, and Frank Miller's Batman: Year One and The Dark Knight Returns. Interviewees contain DC Comics editor Paul Levitz and artist Jim Lee, but the latter's involvement ultimately degrades the featurette into a pitch for DC's All-Star Batman line. Filling out the disc are overviews of 4 gizmos and eight people, DVD-ROM features, and a selection of poster-artwork ideas. To get to the features menu, you have to scroll through a multipage Goyer-scribed comic book, which is a very good read, but you cannot skip it the up coming time you want to view the 2nd disc. Note that the 2nd disc provides a French menu and French (but not English) subtitles for the featurettes. --David Horiuchi
