Batman Begins

[Amazon Link] [5.0 stars] [IMDb Link]

Best. Batman. Movie. Ever. Maybe best comic book movie ever.

Back in the early 70's I used to buy comics for the Caltech Coffeehouse. For a few glorious issues, Batman was drawn by Neal Adams. And he went up against Ra's Al Ghul for the first time. Magic stuff, never read better before or since. And this movie captures that Batman.

Oh, sure, he's got "issues". And people seem to spend a lot of time pontificating about them. But fortunately, he doesn't. And his issues don't get in the way of kicking massive amounts of villainous ass.

And it has an appropriate amount of humor. And everybody's great in it, especially Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman.
