An A+++ for Batman

Let me start off by saying that The Dark Knight was AWESOME....This movie will truly big the Blockbuster Hit of the Summer(maybe even of the year). It was really that good..

Even if you're not a Batman Fanatic (like Brian & myself) you will totally l.o.v.e this film... It truly was a masterpiece... Christian Bale was fantastic and Heather Ledger was out of this world.... He truly left an unforgetable performance.. It left me truly amazed...

The only thing that we weren't crazy about was Maggie Gyllenhaal who played Batman's long time love, Rachel Dawes.. She is a very good actress, but I feel she lacked sex-appeal! You think of Bruce Wayne as a handsome, Playboy, Bachelor.... And naturally you think of him having a beautiful chick on his arm.. But that she wasn't... I mean she isn't ugly by any means, she just lacked something in the appeal factor to me...

A little Back Story if you didn't already know:
The follow-up to the action hit 'Batman Begins,' 'The Dark Knight' reunites director Christopher Nolan and star Christian Bale, who reprises the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman.With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon and the committed new District Attorney, Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham City for good. The triumvirate initially proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as The Joker, who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces The Dark Knight ever closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante.Academy Award nominee Heath Ledger portrays arch-villain The Joker, and Aaron Eckhart plays District Attorney Harvey Dent. Maggie Gyllenhaal joins the cast in the role of Rachel Dawes. Returning from 'Batman Begins' are Gary Oldman as Lieutenant Jim Gordon; Oscar winner Michael Caine as Alfred;
and Oscar winner Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.

The action in The Dark Knight was vastly superior to Batman Begins in every way, shape and form. And we’re not just talking about fight scenes either.The movie has chases and crashes and fight scenes and non-stop action throughtout the entire this movie begins, the clean-up efforts by Batman and district attorney Harvey Dent have infuriated Gotham's criminals, who are escalating their efforts and working together to spread corruption throughout the community so that no one trusts anyone. A man with a mask can be anyone -- or more than one. Copycat Batmans (Batmen) are showing up with something the real Batman never carries -- guns. "That wasn't exactly what I had in mind when I said I wanted to inspire people," Wayne says. The line between justice and vengeance is blurring.

If I were you, I'd go and check it out!! This film grossed
18 million 489 thousand dollars($18,489,000) in the first 12:01 AM show.. Most movies are happy to have that in their opening weekend!! I am so looking forward to see what the over total for opening weekend will be!!
If you did go see the movie what did you think?

I LOVED the movie as well. I want to go back again and again. My next trip will for sure be to the IMAX theater.

I agree with the sex appeal factor in Maggie. I liked Katie Holmes in Batman Begins better. Although, she too seems a little too conservative for the part.
