Batman Begins - 2005

Nolan's Batman Reboot

The Nolan brothers enfuse the story of Bruce Wayne, his parents murder, his adaptation of bats as his disguise of choice, and his training in the League of Shadows (with Ras al Ghul doing the teaching) with a mixture of humor, action, pathos and a completely rational approach to making all the batgear work. This approach, which is almost exactly the upside-down version of Joel Schumacher's Batman and Robin, performed well at the box-office and set the stage for the billion-dollar grosses that came with The Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises.
