A little slow in the beginning, and not as much character development as in the sequel, but this movie shows the promise of the Batman saga as told by the talented Nolan.
Romantic comedy that naturally progresses into a drama, making it stand out form the crowd. But development of the story and characters is middle-of-the-road, and the end predictable yet original in a vulgar kind of way.
A run-of-the-mill yet entertaining British romantic comedy with pleasing performances from Blunt and Scott Thomas and a surprisingly poor performance from McGregor.
It's a story that has been told many times before, but rarely as boring as this.
