  • BATMAN BEGINS is by all accounts one of the darkest and most serious films in the Batman series. In part, this must certainly be attributable to the appropriately nocturnal-sounding score. Each of the 12 pieces here is named after a different species of bat, and the music is often just as spooky as the titles imply. A completely different animal than the usual John Williams-style summer-blockbuster soundtrack, or even Danny Elfman's more left-of-center work, this score moves with all the stealth and intensity of a predatory beast, using droning cellos and throbbing synths to quietly worm its way into the most frightening corners of the listener's brain. While a few pieces ("Molossus," "Artibeus") make good use of dynamic passages more typical of a big action movie, in most instances things here build slowly but surely in the manner of the best minimalist classical works.
