The clip Ra's Al Ghul from Batman Begins (2005) with Liam Neeson, Christian Bale
We have purged your fear.
You are ready to lead these men.
You are ready to become a member of the League of Shadows.
But first, you must demonstrate your commitment to justice.
I'm no executioner.
Your compassion is a weakness your enemies will not share.
That's why it's so important.
It separates us from them.
You want to fight criminals. This man is a murderer.
This man should be tried. By whom?
Criminals mock society's laws.
You know this better than most.
You cannot lead these men unless you are prepared to do what is necessary to defeat evil.
And where would I be leading these men?
As Gotham's favored son you will be ideally placed to strike at the heart of criminality.
Gotham's time has come.
Like Constantinople or Rome before it the city has become a breeding ground for suffering and injustice.
It is beyond saving and must be allowed to die.
This is the most important function of the League of Shadows.
It is one we've performed for centuries.
Gotham must be destroyed.
