Batman fans treat their hero with great reverence and they know what they want: a film that remains true to the grim spirit of Frank Miller's landmark graphic novel, The Dark Knight Returns. Based on audience reactions at a recent screening, it appears that Batman Begins, a back-to-the-basics epic from Memento director Christopher Nolan, has captured the spirit. The movie spends a lot of time on the nuts and bolts of being a masked hero - the physical and mental training, the creation of the various nifty gadgets that go in a utility belt, that sort of business - before introducing the whacked-out villain du jour. And make no mistake, this time our knight remains very, very dark.
