Batman Begins Mobile Wallpaper
Batman Begins is a 2005 American superhero/action film based on the comic book fictional character Batman. The film was first released on June 15, 2005. It was directed by Christopher Nolan and written by Nolan and David S. Goyer. Although it is the fifth live-action Batman film since 1989, the movie is neither a sequel nor a prequel to the previous Tim Burton/Joel Schumacher films, but rather a complete reboot of the Batman series that more closely follows the mood of the Batman comics (much like the film adaptation of The Sum of All Fears in the Jack Ryan series).
Begins explores the origins of the Batman legend and the Dark
Knight's emergence as a force for good in Gotham City.
While being comforted at the police station by police sergeant Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) and being told "good news" about the shooter, Joe Chill, being arrested, Bruce is taken home by family butler Alfred Pennyworth (Michael Caine), who raises him in the absence of his parents.
Now a young adult, Bruce (Christian Bale)
has returned from Princeton University for the parole hearing of his
parents' murderer which was arranged as part of a deal to testify against
the crime boss Carmine Falcone (Tom Wilkinson). Rachel Dawes (Katie
Holmes) is now a Gotham City Assistant District Attorney. The killer
is granted parole, but is murdered immediately after the hearing by
a mob operative. Bruce Wayne was planning to destroy him as well, but
was robbed of the opportunity. When Rachel learns this, she explains
the difference between vengeance and justice to Bruce, and then tells
him that his father would be ashamed. Bruce becomes ashamed of himself
and promptly goes to confront Falcone. After the fateful meeting, Bruce
steals away on a cargo ship, and is later arrested and jailed by Chinese
police for the theft of goods, which, ironically belong to Wayne Enterprises.
Thus prepared, Wayne unveils his alter-ego: Batman, a masked crusader who uses his strength, intellect and an array of high-tech gadgets to combat the sinister forces that threaten the city. Wayne flies back to Gotham with Alfred. To that end, Wayne befriends an unjustly demoted senior company researcher, Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman) as his armorer, using his job as lowly caretaker to grant his boss secret access of the various unused company prototypes for his own use. Two of his first foes come in the forms of Falcone and Dr. Jonathan Crane (Cillian Murphy), who later becomes better known as the Scarecrow. Batman eventually discovers that Ducard is actually Ra's, and has conspired with Crane to poison Gotham's water supply with a toxin that would cause the inhabitants of the city to riot, destroying each other and Gotham itself. They battle and Batman eventually defeats Ra's. As the movie ends, a promoted Gordon expresses gratitude for what Batman has done. Gordon explains that a criminal in the lost "Narrows" area of Gotham has left calling cards at all his crime scenes in the form of a Joker playing card.
