Weeks later, I finally got to see the movie of the year. And movie of the year it truly is. Not only do they put the darkness back in Gotham, but it’s well written, well acted and some seriously sweet stunts. Ledger really did steal the show and I’ll readily admit I laugh at dark humor. The intensity grips you through the whole thing. It really does feel like the whole city is at stake and the odds are not good.
And I love Michael Cain as Alfred.
Score another point for Batman above all the other superhero movies of the last ten years.
