Review: The Dark Knight (2008)

A movie even more exciting than the roller coaster that shares it's name. All of the campy, goofy Batman embarrassments in previous movies are banished from memory. Leger is sheer terror, anarchy made flesh. The movie jolts you like lightning, and keeps you juiced until the very end. A few slow points barely register on the viewer. There is a twisted grin out there, and it's on the face of whoever is making bank off this movie.

I realize I am the minority but I still contend that Michael Keaton was the better Batman. He was smooth, sarcastic, dangerous and he just had to whisper "I'm Batman," not carry on full conversations in some whack-ass fake-deep voice.

But yeah, Heath Ledger was the shit in Dark Knight.
