Batman Begins: How the suit works and Review



I went to see Batman Begins last night, and I have to say that it is easily the best Batman movie ever made. This is no exaggeration. Although I enjoyed the first two batman movies, they got progressively worse after Tim Burton stopped doing them, and even so, they always had a high level of campiness to them.

Batman Begins is an entirely fresh take on the Batman franchise and for the first time it all seems very realistic and plausible. The character development and casting is superb, and the action incredible. Batman Begins is just a good movie by any standards. Batman's strengths as a Ninja and a detective are emphasized here, and the Batmobile, although at first looks nothing like a Batmobile, will convince you utterly once you see it. The Batmobile scenes are almost worth the price of admission alone. Another great feature is that all the special effects are very subtle. I'm sure there are a lot of special effects going on, but you hardly notice them. They assist the movie rather than distract from it.

In any case, I suggest going to see Batman Begins, regardless of whether you're a Batman fan or not. This will probably be the action movie of the year. Seriously.

Also, Howstuffworks has an article describing how the Batsuit works in Batman Begins. Click the link to see.
