Batman Begins

Genius of mystery and intrigue Christopher Nolan (Memento) helms this prequel to the Batman films based on the DC Comics series, explaining how Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) the billionaire prince of Gotham whose parents were killed in an alleyway mugging transformed into the crime-fighting superhero. With flashbacks to his privileged childhood, young Master Wayne, as he is called by the butler Alfred (Michael Caine), develops a terrible fear of bats when he falls through the backyard garden into a hidden cave. As a young adult, Wayne lives among the League of Shadows, a martial arts group in the mountains of Asia. His leaders Ra's al Ghul (Ken Watanabe) and Henri Ducard (Liam Neeson) teach him strength, endurance, and unfortunately evil, against which he naturally rebels. Returning to Gotham and reinstating himself as a dapper socialite and the rightful heir to his parents' enterprise, Wayne quickly devises his secret identity, commanding help from the gadgetry expert Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman). With one eye on his childhood playmate Rachel (Katie Holmes) now a beautiful woman and dedicated lawyer and the other on his mission to save Gotham from criminal corruption, Batman makes his fledgling debut. But when the blue-blooded mastermind Dr. Crane (Cillian Murphy) who steals every scene with chilling menace taints the water system with a hallucinatory substance, Batman realises he has met his first true opponent. An attitude of grave seriousness elevates Batman Begins above more cartoony Batman movies, as Nolan crafts a dark drama that thrives on sci-fi intrigue. Bale strides into the role with grace, adding refinement that is seldom seen in action-oriented films. And while the action scenes explode with high-tech glitz and fast-moving thrills, they are evenly placed among sequences of plot and character development, making for a complex and satisfying viewing experience.

The Dark Knight

Director Christopher Nolan (The Prestige) returns to Gotham City with this sequel to the critically-acclaimed fan favourite, Batman Begins.

In The Dark Knight, Batman raises the stakes in his war on crime. With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman, The Fifth Element) and District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart, No Reservations), Batman sets out to dismantle the remaining criminal organisations that plague the city streets. The partnership proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a reign of chaos unleashed by a rising criminal psychotic mastermind known to the terrified citizens of Gotham as the Joker (Heath Ledger, Brokeback Mountain). What ensues will blow your mind away. From its release on the big screen The Dark Knight has fast become one of the biggest grossing films world-wide.


Good deal. You can save 2-3 quid by buying them together rather than separately.

About time they came down in price!!! I have to say the films themselves aren't as good as the hype suggests they are...saw Dark Knight on Sky and have no desire to watch it again, bit boring IMHO.

...still, good price I s'pose!

I agree. I've always preferred Batman Begins over Dark Knight.

If you watch dark knight on blu ray it's in imax, on sky it is not.

And the sound is great on blu ray aswell

2 great films, hot.

Good deal!

not voting either way, but I wouldn't say 2 dvds for £20 is an 'amazing' deal by any stretch.

Not DVD. Blu ray.

However, I agree - £10 each is not "smoking" - it's more "warm".

Well actually they are both film that in blu ray it's hard if not impossible to find £10 each. Does anyone know if it's the same price even in store? With the strikes these week here in south london I guess I will get mail again directly after christmas.

True but its the Batman films which have tended to be pretty expensive. Only recently have the prices started to drop. Dark Knight is still £13 on its own. That said i agree its not that hot a deal considering you can now get certain blu ray films for under £5!

Maybe not, but 2 blu-rays for £20 is pretty good - especially when the films are as good as these two.

I meant blurays. There have been quite a lot of BOGOFs for about £17-18 lately, didnt think that was a particularly great price either - fair enough if you are after both Batman films on BR but still, could be better.

Dark Knight was included in recent BOGOF's and Batman Begins is regularly available for £10 or less

In fact it is available right now for £9.98 at Amazon and £9.99 at HMV

Is dark knight the 2 disk in this set or the one disk ?

It say double pack so I guess it's one.
