For those of you who care, Batman Begins is fantastic. I found no flaws in the flick whatsoever. The casting is great, the story is great, and it has Ra's Al Ghul, my favorite Bat-baddie.

I'm sure you've heard of The Joker, The Riddler and The Penguin. You might be asking yourself who the hell Ra's Al Ghul is. Or not. Regardless, Ima tell you.

Ra's helped make Bruce Wayne into Batman. He helped to train him in martial arts, among other things. Ra's has lived for centuries, due to his discovery of Lazarus Pits. Ra's is a villian, but isn't evil. He and Batman are looking at the same goal, but have vastly different ways to achieve said goal. And, the story in the movie brought that out.

Also, unlike other Batman movies, this one actually acknowledges that "Bruce Wayne" is the costume, while Batman is the real person. It also shows that "Batman" is not one person -- he's a network. Batman is the physical manifestation, but there are many people involved in making it work -- Alfred (wonderfully played by Michael Caine), Lucius Fox (the weapons maker, played by Morgan Freeman) and James Gordon (not yet Commisioner Gordon, played by Gary Oldham). Without these people, Batman (Christian Bale) would not work.

This is a short review, but I'm drunk and tired. Trust me on this one -- it's better than Tim Burton's Batman, which I still love.
