They got rid of the Bat-nipples? Joel Schumacher will be so disappointed. Fortunately for everyone else, Nolan rejects the other Bat-sequels' lame campiness and returns Batman to his gritty roots, showing us how a young Bruce Wayne (Bale) first became the Caped Crusader. After training abroad with the mysterious Ducard (Neeson) and Ra's Al Ghul (Watanabe), Wayne begins his one-man war on crime with the help of his butler Alfred (Caine), good cop Jim Gordon (Oldman), and tech-savvy Lucius Fox (Freeman). The cast is beyond stellar, and Nolan does an amazing job of making Batman's world seem almost plausible. There's a bit too much angsty pondering about the nature of fear, but you'll forget all that once you see the Lamborghini-inspired Batmobile.
