Series: Movie Bible Study for Teens
A hero in the making.
Batman Begins has been hailed as the high-water mark for films about superheroes. Everything clicks in this film: the special effects are astounding, the characters are intriguing, the relationships are dynamic, the plot is plausible, the story is epic. A bit too frightening for children, the film rewards adult fans by establishing without a doubt that superheroes are a contemporary mythology that thus fulfills the task of all mythologies: to define reality, to outline ethics, and to inspire nobility. This study looks at the movie s themes of justice, courage, and following our calling.
