The Comic Book Movie Grows Up

Finally, a "comic book" movie that plys for grown-ups. Just as the graphic novel transcended the childish associations of comic books, so Nolan's Dark Knight takes the superhero genre and does what Frank Miller and Alan Moore did so long ago in printed form. Dark, moody, intelligent - yet it still delivers as an action movie. And yes the Joker steals the movie - superb performance, fascinating character. Just when Heath proved he had it in him he OD's - a tragic loss based on his performance here. Oh, and the opening IMAX camera scenes need to be seen in an IMAX theatre - awesome! Turn up the volume and go batty!
