The Best and the Worst Batman Movies
5. Batman Begins (2005)
I’ve never been a huge fan of Batman Begins. I’ll even admit that I didn’t even see Batman Begins until after I saw The Dark Knight. With that said, even after repeat viewings to try and get into it I just found this origins story to be a bit too long and boring.
Katie Holmes was horribly miscast as Rachel Dawes and she didn’t really bring anything to the table. Cillian Murphy, however, was perfectly cast as Scarecrow (aka, Dr. Jonathan Crane) but I thought his character got cheated a bit. I wanted more Scarecrow and less Ra’s al Ghul. For an origins story they should have focused on just the one villain because it just felt like Batman couldn’t decide which was a bigger threat and that irritated me as a viewer.
