Why watch this film?

Director Christopher Nolan was called upon to create a new version of Batman for the cinemas. Along with screenwriter David S. Goyer, Nolan developed a detailed origin story for the hero, in which every action, piece of equipment and event was explained in minute detail, creating such a strong "suspension of disbelief" that it made the viewer actually believe that everything could, somehow, be plausible. In the lead role we have Christian Bale, a perfect choice to delve deeper into the dramas of Bruce Wayne than had been seen in previous movies. The rest of the cast is also powerful, including Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon and Liam Neeson as the villain/tutor. There are also great action scenes, resulting in a final product that would dictate the paths of superhero movies that would come after.
