'Batman Begins' named top film of 2005

By
Batman Begins has fought off the likes of Sin City and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith to win Total Film's favourite film of the year award.

Other awards went to Sin City and Revenge of the Sith actors Mickey Rourke and Ian McDiarmid. War of the Worlds star Dakota Fanning was named best child actor.

The magazine's deputy editor praised Batman Begins for being "a smart but funny reinvention" and "excellently directed." He added: "[It] overcomes the horrible taste that previous outing Batman & Robin left in people's mouths."

The awards were voted for by 15,000 film fans. The full list can be seen in the latest issue of Total Film, which went on sale on Thursday.
