Batman Begins

Batman Begins: Directed by Christopher Nolan. With Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes. After training with his mentor, Batman begins his fight to free crime-ridden Gotham City from corruption.

In the wake of his parents’ murders, disillusioned heir Bruce Wayne travels the world seeking the means to fight injustice and turn fear against those who prey on the fearful. With the help of his trusted butler Alfred, detective Jim Gordon, and his ally Lucious Fox, Wayne returns to Gotham City and unleashes his alter ego: Batman, a masked crusader who uses strength, intellect, and an array of high-tech weaponry to fight the sinister forces that threaten the city.
