Batman Begins has swept in as one of the surprise blockbuster hits of this summer’s cinematic releases – and sees director Chris Nolan drag the caped crusader back to his roots. The result is a dark, edgy reinvention of the dark knight that avoids the camp commercialism of previous movies – and it’s all the better for it.

Yet reinventing Batman involved more than a new latex costume and retooled batmobile. A vital aspect that Nolan needed was a raft of top-drawer special effects; only, Nolan didn’t actually want them to appear as the centrepiece in the way that films such as War Of The Worlds showboated its VFX.

For Nolan, Batman Begins was to feature effects so seamless that if the audience were to watch a reel alongside a CG-generated sequence, they wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. Instead of bombarding the audience with special effects, Nolan was determined to create a film that used them with the subtle touch of a master surgeon.
