Christopher Nolan is one of my favourite directors. He made Batman Begins featuring Christian Bale. This movie is such an awesome movie, I personally believe that this series is the best out of the entire Batman trilogy.
Below are some great quotes from the movie. Enjoy.
It’s not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.
There’s nothing to fear, but fear itself!
Bruce Wayne: “I wanted to save Gotham. I’ve failed.”
Alfred: “Why do we fall, sir? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up.”
Bruce: “You still haven’t given up on me?”
Henri Ducard: “A vigilante is just a man lost in the scramble for his own gratification. He can be destroyed, or locked up. But if you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal and if they can’t stop you, then you become something else entirely…”
Bruce Wayne: “Which is?”
Henri Ducard: “A legend, Mr. Wayne.”
Bruce Wayne: “You’re not the devil. You’re practice.”
Bruce Wayne: “I came here to show you that not everyone in Gotham’s afraid of you.”
Carmine Falcone: “Only those who know me, kid. Look around you. You’ll see two councilmen a union official, couple off-duty cops and a judge. Now I wouldn’t have a second’s hesitation of blowing your head off right here and right now in front of them. Now, that’s power you can’t buy. That’s the power of fear.”
Bruce Wayne: “I’m not afraid of you.”
“People from your world have so much to lose. Now, you think because your mommy and your daddy got shot, you know about the ugly side of life, but you don’t. You’ve never tasted desperate. You’re… you’re Bruce Wayne, the Prince of Gotham – you’d have to go a thousand miles to meet someone who didn’t know your name. So don’t — don’t come down here with your anger, trying to prove something to yourself. This is a world you’ll never understand, and you always fear what you don’t understand.”
Ra’s: Gunned down by one of the very people they were trying to help. Create enough hunger and everyone becomes a criminal. Their deaths galvanized the city into saving itself and Gotham has limped on ever since. We are back to finish the job. And this time no misguided idealists will get in the way. Like your father you lack the courage to do all that is necessary. If someone stands in the way of true justice, you simply walk up behind them… and stab them in the heart.
