It has been 15 years since the release of Nolan’s first instalment in the famous trilogy of all comic book universe. Why this movie is so important. The previous Batman movie before this was “Batman and Robin” in 1997 which had George Cloney, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Uma Thurman. Even having the great stars this film failed miserably. Both audience and critics didn’t like the movie. So Warner Bros was having a great discussion for 6 long years to select the perfect Script and Director. At Last at 2003 they have signed Christopher Nolan a Cape Crusader to bring back life into the Character. Nolan was accompanied by David S Goyer a great Screen Writer from the Blade Trinity. They both worked hard to present us a great Origin Story of a superhero till date.

This movie planted the seed of hope in all the fans around the world that Batman will become their Favourite Dark Vigilante. Casting Christian Bale as Batman was a great call he had given his soul into the character. As Bale will be remembered for his Batman role Forever. The gritty voice of batman and building the body for the character all had been done really well.

All the cast, from Michael Caine (Alfred), Morgan Freeman (Lucius Fox), Liam Neeson (Ra’s al Ghul) and the late Rutger Hauer (William Earle) has done a splendid job. The Ra’s al Ghul twist is one of the best twists in the movie. Cillian Murphy (Our own Thomas Shelby) has done great work as the scarecrow. He injected horror well into the nerves of the viewers.

The Emotions carried out well in the movie. The first one hour travels around the childhood and training of Bruce which help us to connect really well to the emotional journey he had. The Stunt sequences are very well choreographed and the live location shooting is Nolans greatest Strengths. We cannot forget Tumblr used in the movie. Everyone would be a fan of the vehicle. Nolan has done a great job in making the Batman darker than before and giving the shade to all the following movies.

This movie got great critical acclamation and done very well in the box office. Which has paved the way for all the new DC movies! This article is necessary to celebrate the cinematic brilliance which we have witnessed. This movie has become a Pioneer in making the origin stories.
