The Dark Knight

By on 7.18.08 | 8:46AM

I caught the 12:01 a.m. showing last night/this morning, and have to say that it lives up to its billing. It really is less of a straight comic book movie, and more of a urban crime epic that happens to have some comic book characters. The acting was all superb, and Heath Ledger did really turn in an incredible performance as The Joker, much more haunting and less amusing than Jack Nicholson. Lots more to discuss in the film, but will wait until next week, after more people have seen it, because I don't want to spoil anything.
