"Batman Begins" final gets Batman Right

I went to see "Batman Begins" last night withe new priest here at St. James. While I do not read the Batman comics much, I think this movie finally got Batman right. Yes, he is a tormented soul, wacked with guilt and anger over his parents death, but he is not insane, like some of the other movies almost make him seem to be. It is a "dark" movie, but not the down-right blackness of Tim Burton's take on the Batman genre. Very cool FX, just the right amount of humorous dialogue.

There is an interesting question throughout the movie as to just what constitutes "justice." I do not want to spoil anything, but I would recommend the movie.
