When Christopher Nolan released Batman Begins there was no telling where he was taking the legendary Batman character. It would turn out to be the best comic based series of all time. As the title suggests, this film focuses upon how Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) took the death of his parents and used it to become a superhero. It wasn’t as simple as the comics however. That’s shown in Wayne’s confrontation with Ra’s al Ghul (Liam Neeson) who trains Wayne to become an assassin to right the wrongs of society. Wayne’s faced with the moral question of whether he will be driven by revenge or justice.
The story is broken up into different parts. The first, is Wayne’s training under Ghul where he learns to master his own fear. As Wayne enters the house of the League of Shadows which Ghul leads, Bruce says that he wants to fight injustice in the world. He got this drive after the death of his parents. He started on this path on his own to prove that he could be his own man and not just be a rich kid that’s handed everything to him. When he comes to the League it’s the next phase as he has to become a warrior.
