The clip The call of the league of shadows from Batman Begins (2005) with Liam Neeson, Christian Bale
The League of Shadows has been a check against human corruption for thousands of years.
We sacked Rome. Loaded trade ships with plague rats.
Burned London to the ground.
Every time a civilization reaches the pinnacle of its decadence we return to restore the balance.
Gotham isn't beyond saving.
Give me more time. There are good people here.
You're defending a city so corrupt we have infiltrated every level of its infrastructure.
Time to play.
When I found you in that jail, you were lost.
But I believed in you.
I took away your fear, and I showed you a path.
You were my greatest student.
It should be you standing by my side, saving the world.
I'll be standing where I belong.
Between you and the people of Gotham.
No one can save Gotham.
When a forest grows too wild, a purging fire is inevitable and natural.
Tomorrow the world will watch in horror as its greatest city destroys itself.
The movement back to harmony will be unstoppable this time.
You attacked Gotham before?
Over the ages our weapons have grown more sophisticated.
With Gotham we tried a new one. Economics.
