Superhero-themed films have never died to pound the world of cinema. This year alone there have been several superhero films released, such as Logan, Guardian of The Galaxy Vol. 2, and Wonder Woman, who is airing in a movie theater. It doesn’t stop there, there are still some other superhero films that will air this year, such as Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, and the Justice League. Movie fans, especially superhero films, don’t need to worry about running out of entertainment.
However, what actually makes us stand in the arms of the cinema to watch their films? Is it because we like their actions in eradicating crime? Is it because the superheroes are pleasing to the eye (read: manly and sexy)? Or because these films not only present the cliche superhero side but also their humanity. In the film, the superheroes face various problems in facing their enemies. They were battered, they were at odds with their own friends, even lost in the middle of the battle. They are not perfect. Just like we are just ordinary humans. In the midst of despair, there are inspirational words spoken. Hope also emerged, the fire of enthusiasm was burning again, and finally, they managed to crush the crime.
Here is one of the most quotes from the superhero movie Batman Begins that can burn your spirits.
“It’s not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.” (Batman, Batman Begins)
This quote was actually spoken twice in the Batman Begins film. The first was said in the early scene of this film. In the scene, Bruce Wayne, played by Christian Bale, pretends to be a rich man who likes to spree. Then he happened to meet his old love, Rachel Dawes, played by Katie Holmes. Bruce argued that his attitude was only fake, but Rachel said, “It’s not who you are underneath, it’s what you do that defines you.”
The second time was said when approaching the climax scene. In the scene, Batman saves Rachel and a boy. When Rachel asks who he is, Batman says, “It’s not who I am underneath, but what I do defines me.” Rachel also knows that Batman is Bruce Wayne.
What makes us inspired by this quote is what we do describes who and what we are. This sentence reminds us of the phrase, “Do more talk less”. We can easily say what we are, but people can judge you from what you do. So, don’t talk much anymore, just do your great action.
