The Dark Knight Directed by: Christopher Nolan Cast: Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Aaron Eckhart, Michael Caine, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman Time: 2 hr 30 min Rating: PG-13

The Dark Knight is the best adult superhero film of all time. This is heavy, violent and evil with the Joker proving to be the perfect anarchist villain to Batman’s dark knight. For such a fantasy, it is amazing how director Christopher Nolan can make it feel real. The opening with the pounding score and a bank heist is more out of action movie like Heat instead of a superhero flick. There were hints of under-explained story lines but that is the only thing keeping this film away from perfection. They didn’t run into too many villains and normally with a longer film you think there is too much. I say this with a smile from ear to ear, there is too much of a good thing.
