And I enjoyed it very much! I'll share some impressions that should titillate you without being "spoilers".
I liked Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox more than I expected. Still, the man should drink a little coffee before the cameras start rolling.
I was pleasantly suprised that Gary Oldman was so restrained in his performance as Jim Gordon. I've never before seen him on a set without teethmarks in it.
I like Michael Caine as Alfred even less than I expected. Alfred should sound like David Niven, not Alfred P. Doolittle. Oh, and Michael; learn to tie a tie.
Bale's perfect (except I don't like his "Batman voice").
The Batmobile is just what it needs to be; have faith in the Batmobile.
The woman seemed gratuitous. The kid was definitely gratuitous.
The Scarecrow is not the only Batman villain who appears in the film; a lesser villain appears repeatedly but has no lines.
Now I finally feel I have met Bruce Wayne's father, and adore him.
I was very impressed that Gotham appears to be modeled exactly on the map of Gotham as we know it.
The waterfall is wonderful.
The card is not correct, which is disappointing because there is no reason it shouldn't be.
Bruce Wayne gets the best headline in the film. BY FAR.
This version of Ra's has a more reasonable motive than the comic book version and one much more logically connecting him to Batman.
Best origin of the Batsignal ever.
If you live in Georgetown, the climax of the film will seem familiar.
What the Waynes attend the night of their murder makes more sense than "Mask of Zorro".
The film explains very well why Batman does what he does and why he does it the way he does it.
Some of the symbolic coincidences and expository dialog are a bit heavy handed but not beyond the bounds of a regular comic book.
I look forward to seeing it again and to a sequel.
