The Dark Knight - Movie Review

The Dark Knight (PG-13) 152 minutes B
The Dark Knight faces his darkest days

Starring Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, and Morgan Freeman

First things first, Heath Ledger is as good as advertised- believe the hype! Ledger is the best Joker since Cesar Romero (from the Batman TV Series circa 1966), and overall The Dark Knight is easily the best Batman film of all time.

Adam West will always be my favorite caped crusader, but Christian Bale has proved that he's worthy of the crown in this post 9/11 world. Despite the moody tone, the heavy handed ethical dilemma, and all of his self doubt... Batman still reigns supreme while sporting the coolest gadgets and heavy machinery of any superhero.
