Batman Begins

I liked the whole story, parts were too Hollywood Blockbuster for me. My biggest gripe is when Bruce Wayne is in China, everybody speaks English. WTF? I assume it’s a studio decision (with the hope that Christopher Nolen still respects his audience). My second gripe was with the casting of Gary Oldman. He was good, but his talent seemed wasted on Commissioner Gordon. Also Gotham is New York with some Chicago, not the other way around. Overall I liked it, but felt it was empty and many of the parts could have been improved. I suppose it’s hard for a blockbuster to please me anyway.
