“The Will To Act” (Batman Begins)

After watching both batman films I still must say Batman Begins is slightly a better movie. Many are going to disagree but that’s ok, The Dark Knight was a spectacular movie and had many memorable moments but I personally think Batman Begins was a deeper and more complete film experience. There is a scene in the 1st film that I will never forget, it stars Liam Neeson (one of my favorite actors) and Christian Bale (another one of my top actors) sparing. Liam Neeson is a magnificent actor and it shows in all his films, in batman he excels even further. Liam trains the young Bruce Wayne and teaches him the “will to act”. He taunts Bruce saying his parents death was his fathers fault and then telling Bruce he is stronger than his father all while in fast paced combat. This scene is so wonderfully shot cinematically from the snow covered mountains to the white crystal like ice they engage battle upon. What brings it all together is the score, without the epic score I may not even be writing this now, that’s how vital it is to the film.

The will to act is the power to do something even when the odds are insurmountable. – Brother Menelik Ebna la-Hakim
