The Dark Knight

Heh, I was gonna do a review but what can be said that hasn't been said a thousand times better on Ain't It Cool?

This was a tight, well paced, excellently acted hardboiled crime drama. Crime drama, not super-hero action movie. This movie is completely unlike the the Burton/Schumacher Batman movies, Spider-Man, X-Men, Superman, Iron Man, The Hulk movies.....hell, it's unlike Batman Begins. I've made the observation elsewhere in e-mail, but what this movie does for the notion of super-hero movies is like what Frank Miller did for comics when he wrote The Dark Knight Returns. It elevates.

I'm gonna try to see it again Saturday or Sunday. Fucking brilliant.
