Wow, wow, wow - absolutely amazing and one of the best films of the year. This is the Batman movie we've been waiting for and really explores why he's The Dark Knight. Still love Batman Begins and have a fondness for the Tim Burton versions, but The Dark Knight blows them all away. Acting was absolutely superb (Maggie Gyllenhaal is a welcome addition to this already splendid cast) and what can I say about Heath Ledger as the Joker - it's a transformative role. Christopher Nolan and his brother did an amazing job with the writing and Nolan's directing really makes Gotham gloomier than ever. Plan on seeing the IMAX version early next week but I'm still overwhelmed by the power of this film. Please don't bring little kids to see this - it absolutely earns its PG-13. Unfortunately, some in our audience brought little people who ended up crying, especially during the Joker scenes.
If you have the opportunity, go see this in IMAX!! The sound quality is fantastic!

I went to the midnight premiere of The Dark Knight and was well rewarded for my willingness to deprive myself of sleep! It was dark, gritty and very entertaining. Heath Ledger's portrayal of the Joker was brilliant and not for the faint of heart. We see the Joker as he was meant to be - not some giggling nutter who likes to prance and dance, deface priceless works of art and give people a bad hair day; but rather a born killer without regret or remorse, completely unafraid of authority and without pity or compromise. Truly, Batman has met his arch nemesis in Ledger's Joker. When the Joker goes after Wayne's love, Rachel, we see the depth of the price he must pay to fight injustice. The only critical comment I have is that Harvey Dent's metamorphosis into Two Face should have been left for a subsequent film as it distracted from the conflict between Batman and the Joker. All in all, this is the Batman movie that fans have long awaited and I highly recommend it!

I saw this movie at an IMAX test screening. The portrayal of joker could not be any better, and bale is definitely the best batman. the movie is great from beginning to end and is worth the imax experience. ledger is twisted beyond belief in this movie, but deserves on oscar for it. even though it was 2 1/2 hours, it went by too quick and i was ready for more. there wasnt one person in the theater that didnt enjoy it. be ready for a dark movie with alot of twists.
