In the wake of his parents' murder, disillusioned industrial heir Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) travels the world seeking the means to fight injustice and turn fear against those who prey on the fearful. He returns to Gotham and, with the help of trusted butler Alfred (a scene-stealing Michael Caine) unveils his alter-ego: Batman is a masked crusader who will use strength, intellect and an array of high tech deceptions to fight the sinister forces that threaten the city...

Director Christopher Nolan deliberately exorcises the camp and grand guignol of the previous movies and TV series. This is truly a gritty and brooding exploration of the beginnings of the Dark Knight, a faithful vision of Bob Kane's anti-hero from DC Comics.

 Fantastic transfer for a classic film

As a big fan of the movie I was thrilled to hear it would be getting a BD release and just in time for TDK.

The transfer is incredible and makes the whole experience of watching the movie feel totally fresh.

The extra feature of the opening 6 minutes of TDK is worth the price alone!

 The USB flash drive is 128mb

 Brilliant Disc ... but I had to work hard to appreciate it!

** POTENTIALLY USEFUL ALERT **
The disc is great but be warned, to avoid the disappointment of it arriving through your letterbox, unpacking it, admiring the packaging and then slipping the disc into the machine only to discover it won't run properly, make sure that you have downloaded and applied the latest FirmWare Updates.

It takes quite a while to do (or it did on my Samsung BD-P1400) and the effort involved made it impossible for me to have enough time to actually watch the film or check out all the special features.

 Back from the brink

| | See all DougieTurtle's reviews (4)

The sad thing is Batman Begins seems to be forgotten among all the Dark Knight hype. People tend to forget how good a film it is - this is the film that brought the cinematic Batman back from the brink of destruction.

It's refreshing to have a film focus on Batman for once and not the bad guy, and the story is exciting but with enough focus on character for it to be interesting as well. Performance wise you can't go wrong with players like Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Cillian Murphy and Christian Bale (oh I wish he was my favourite Batman, he's a much closer fit to the comics... but Michael Keaton is too strong a memory for me)

The only thing wrong with the disc is that it's a little low on features.

As for the price, it's a bit silly to compare the price of BluRay to HD-DVD. HD-DVD is a dead medium, no longer in production. Most retailers were selling them at low prices to get rid of now worthless stock - of course it was cheaper.
