“Because sometimes truth isn’t good enough. Sometimes people deserve more. Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded.”
The Batman, The Cape Crusader, The Dark Knight – these are the common name of man behind a mask.
Honestly, I’m not a fan of Batman-comic franchise of any sort. I’m not familiar with its beginnings, inspirations and anything related to its creation. But after watching Christopher Nolan’s version of the Cape Crusader, at the age of 22, I was really hooked into its character – Bruce Wayne. Yes, this post is about Bruce Wayne, just like the blog post title suggests.
We’ve seen a lot of movies on its franchise, but none of these movies were able to go deep into Batman’s genesis. None have portrayed that there was a man behind the mask – a human, just like everyone else. And on my opinion, the thing that gives Nolan’s version a great deal is the realism surrounding the film and the emotion emphasized by the actors of the characters.
The Batman was Nolanized!
The The Dark Knight Trilogy has given the justice to the character of Bruce Wayne that it deserve. The trilogy was a success in showing that Batman, behind its mask, is just a man that can be hurt and crumbled. I really like how Nolan built Bruce’s character, from a child with guilt due to the death of his parents, became a crime fighter balancing his life and the masked man, to a desperate person that had lost its appetite about life. Also I’d like to commend Bale’s performance for the three characters of the trilogy; (1) as an eccentric bastard billionaire; (2) as real Bruce Wayne with Alfred and Rachel; and lastly (3) the masked vigilante trying to fight a battle for a city he doesn’t love, and brought him too much pain.
#Kudos to all the those people who created and contributed on making a silver screen masterpiece!
