No, not at all. It takes it's time building the story. Nothing feels over the top or rushed.<br><br>At first I was bothered because the fight scenes are filmed up close and I felt like I was missing out on seeing kick butt, but I later realized that it was more about the intensity of the fight than the cool moves. <br><br>I can't say enough good things about this movie.<br><br>
I saw it tonight also. Damn, what a cool movie. I'd heard some complaints about the close-up fight scenes, but I think it was a good decision by Nolan. The claustrophobia, quick cuts and darkness force you feel the scene vs. admiring the fighting technique. It also insures the movie will age a lot better than movies like the Matrix, where the fight scenes already look dated because it's been done to death by now. Plus, it allowed Nolan to keep the budget down without making it looked like he cheaped out.<br><br>My only minor gripe is I didn't particularly like ears on the cowl. I like them pointed straight up like the late-60s Neal Adams version, not kinda perched on top of the head with the ears curled in.<br><br>Bottom line, this is the way to make a prequel. Take note, George Lucas.<br><br>
yeah, my biggest fear was that we would have "slow motion" fight scenes. I hate slow motion, I really do. I liked how these fight scenes pretty much showed the fight from the perspective of the criminals.<br><br>Katie Holmes actually impressed me in this movie too. She wasn't acting like a teenager.<br><br>
It seems like people love to change the ears and the car. <br><br>I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they don't turn this in to another freak show... nipples on the bat suit, what were they thinking?<br>I'm sure Bob Kane is very happy with this one.<br><br>
Saw it too and was surprised how good it was!<br><br>The best superhero movie i have seen, and Gary Oldham, I didnt even recognize him.<br><br>For those that loved Memento go see Batman, the Director is the same and he is a genius.<br><br><br><br>

Bottom line, this is the way to make a prequel. Take note, George Lucas.<br><br><br>I know it seems like it, but it's NOT a prequel- it's more of a re-telling of the story. Sort of an adaptation of the 'Year One' comic series as opposed to something that was simply made up by Tim Burton...<br><br>Back in Black...

As a huge fan of the comic books when I was a kid, I had long imagined a good movie about The Batman's origin. I look forward to seeing this one...and I hardly EVER go to the movies...I've seen maybe 2 in a theatre in the past 10 years.<br><br><br>
