It is a shame that Danny Elfman was unable to write the score for this movie. But on the other hand, we got to see a far more experienced and better composer take the wheel. Hans Zimmer's work throughout the years can be seen as a legendary achievement in movie music history. Zimmer cleary has an originality that can not be challenged as seen in movies like "Gladiator" and "King Arthur" etc. Hans Zimmer has a way of completely defining the human spirit with a lot of his work. With Batman Begins, Zimmer changes into a darker mood than usual. This gives the movie a felling of newness and modern style. It is cleary a score that can flow with the picture as usual with Hans Zimmer. Anyone who thinks Hans Zimmer has failed at recreating Batman to the modern tone of filmaking is wrong. Zimmer instead gives the audience a feeling of interest. It keeps them waiting for what is yet to come. Danny Elfman did not invent anything with the first few batman scores. He simply used a method of switching from major to minor on and off and vice versa. This can be seen in a different, more powerful form with Batman Begins. Batman Begins is a great movie with a great score, deal with it, and get over Danny Elfman.
