Quick Movie Review

I saw Batman Begins last night. I liked it. It moved well, and had a good cast. Christian Bale as the troubled Bruce Wayne, Michael Caine as Alfred, Liam Neeson as the baddest of the bad guys, Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon, Morgan Freeman as Batman's toymaker and Cillian Murphy as the scary Dr. Crane. Excellent jobs by all.
The notable exception was Katie Holmes as the perky Assistant DA and her handy Taser. She was slightly more believable than Denise Richards as Nuclear Physicist in The World is Not Enough, but then I didn't buy that one for a minute. Both actresses were little more than eye candy in an action film.
