Last night at midnight, I saw the best Batman film I have ever seen.
Christopher Nolan, I am impressed with how seriously you treated the legend that is Batman. Christian Bale, I knew you could embody Bruce Wayne with your incredible physique, but I was wowed by your strength as the caped crusader. Katie Holmes, you were pretty good, but you didn't have enough screen time, plus your youthful looks kept many from believing you were a mature assistant district attorney. Gary Oldman, I thought that your portrayal of Officer (eventually Lieutenant, later Commissioner) Gordon was formidable, displaying the humanity that drew Bruce Wayne to trust you. Cillian Murphy, WOW, your Scarecrow was fantastic! Kudos to Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Ken Watanabe (sp?), and Liam Neeson.
The script was plausible, the action was swift and continuous, and I enjoyed each actor's contribution to the film. I love the fact that they leave it open for a sequel (as if), which I will hope can live up to this one. I can't wait to see it again. If you haven't seen it yet, go see it. I am sure it's playing somewhere near you.
