Hopefully going to see The Dark Knight Rises soon, so to prep for that enjoyed Batman Begins the other night.
What struck me was the almost light-hearted tone this first film had compared to The Dark Knight; it’s saying something about that film that it casts its dark shadow even on its predecessor, at least to my mind.
What Rachel says to him at the end and how they part still irks me:
“Hey, I’m glad we just kissed. Now that we have, I can tell you that we can never be together because the man that I loved is dead. So, even though you’re now doing what I complained about the entire movie (stand up and help the good people of Gotham), I’ll see you later. Oh, and I’m proud of you and so is your father. Goodbye.”.
