Why 5 stars? Because this is the most influential film of 21st Century cinema so far. EASY RIDER (64) gave us the auteur reign, JAWS (75) gave us the tentpole films of the 80's, PULP FICTION (94) gave us popular Indie and Batman Begins (05) gave us the Superhero genre we are suffering through today. This film single handedly resurrected the whole comic book mythology, changed Hollywood and changed the culture.
I was a little worried back then when I knew Batman would fight two class-b villains. I was wrong. Christopher Nolan gave a strong backstory in each characters. Especially, Ra's Al Ghul who had important role in Bruce Wayne's life. I think this film is one of the best reboot of all time.
One of the finest superhero films to date. While that isn't a hard level reach considering the absolute trash they're releasing lately, it's a highly entertaining film that exiles all the unnecessary goofiness acquired over the years and retains the mystery and darkness that makes Batman so interesting.
