I don't think I need to add any more than what has been said about his amazing piece of work. Outstanding job done be all all the way down to the gaffer and Mr. Ledgers persoanl assistant. I will say I as hoping to dislike the Joke character for the fact that we lost Heath Leader and will not be able to reprise the role, but I have fallen victim to the charisma and amazing portrayal of the clown prince he brought to the screen. I hear about the negative vibes others got from the rasp in Batman's voice, but there does need to be a distict difference between the two characters that Bale as solidified as his own. I am happy to continue to contribute to the beat Titanic cause further, but after seeing this film sevens times in theaters, I think I'll just have to see it a fee times more. I completely recommend this movie, I love the dark ovetone Nolan has cast on this film and hope he will continue to cast larger shadows on this industry.

There is something mesmerizing about the Dark Knight. This movie really took me to another place while I was watching it. I was totally immersed in this movie. I saw it at an IMAX and was just completely blown away. Amazing movie. This is a must go.

For many years I have been tormented with the absolute disregard of those people who feel that they can break the law & do whatever they want to innocent citizens. I have made it my mission to defend those who cannot defend themselves. As a member of the Fraternal Order of the Dark Knight, I have accepted this duty with honor & will defend our mission with my life. Now I know that many of you have seen the many recreations of the Dark Knight; from the early days as a DC Comics hero in 1939, to our fraternal brother Adam West as the Batman in the 1960's, the Batman animated adventures-that still runs today & of course, the big screen renditions with fraternal thespian brothers Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney & now Christian Bale. The latest presentation will pit our brother against the Joker. This is the ultimate evolution of the Dark Knight's fight against overwhelming forces. DON'T MISS THIS MOVIE-this will be the best of 2008!

Prior to seeing The Dark Knight, I have to admit that NONE of the previous Batman movies would be on the list of my favorite Superhero films. Not a single one. I always saw each and every one of them as an extension of the ego of the director, as well as a marketing technique for the production company.
Not even the '89 Batman with Keaton. I just never connected with it very much, except for the suit. And I'll leave it at that.
Now... Not only has "The Dark Knight" absolutley SLAMMED itself to the top of my list for favorite Superhero films... It's also pretty far up there on my list for favorite all around films of all time.

Ok I went today to see the movie. I did not read any reviews before going. Before writing this I looked at the reviews here and just had to see why people would rate this as a "oh no". The only one of those reviews I could understand was the one who said they would not take their kid to see it. I would agree with that. The other neg reviews I just don't get, but to each his/her own. I thought this was a fantastic movie. I did not expect such a great performance from Heath. I thought it was just a bunch of hype to sell tickets. Well it's not. From the beginning to the end it was WOW. He did a great job. Oscar worthy for sure!!! I left the theater feeling like I was speeding....The first "10" movie of the year!! I will definitely try to see this on Imax. Go, Go, GO!!
