Out of all the live action Batman films to this point, this is the only one that gives Bruce Wayne / Batman an actual character.
This was even better than I remember it. The first two 3rds (ish) are SO GOOD at exploring Wayne and his motivations. The stealth-action scenes are awesome (tho the standard punchy action stuff is not great). Love me a scary ninja-like Batman. That's what he does best, imo.
Kinda drops off and drags on for the final act, but still, it's easy to see why this was such a turning point for Batman in cinema.
