Friday I saw The Dark Knight. I normally don’t write many movie reviews but mostly I would really like “jja” to post about the film as his movie reviews are normally really good so I’ll write up a few thoughts about the movie. I also want to thank vanbergs for taking me to the movies on a old school mandate for my birthday. It was much apprecieated.
The first thing I want to state is sadly something I’m going to ripoff from my favorite movie website. If somebody said it well already no reason not to quote them.
The Dark Knight, and films like it, give me hope for the future of movies. It is a good, solid story, and not afraid to show us the dark. Thanks to all of you for making this fable the biggest grosser of all time – you have redeemed my faith in the North American movie going public.
After the travesty that is Spider Man 3 I’m very happy a movie that is actually good is the highest first week earner.
The Dark Knight is the movie Batman Begins built towards. They fixed many problems (Katie Holmes/Combat). For an established property that is not rated R The Dark Knight is about as good as it’s going to get.
I wish the movie had a tumbler sequence as that was maybe my favorite part from the first movie (other then the ejection from the subway) but the batcycle was alright. The fighting is much improved. I enjoyed Harvey Dent and The Joker much more then I thought I would. Really other then nitpicking I can’t find much wrong with the movie.
Highly recommended but not “really” for children but that is exactly how it should be…well at least for me. JJA’s post will hopefully be better then mine.
