"Tonight, let's try a social experiment."
~ I'm never going to get time to write a decent review...too darn busy. But managed to catch the movie last night, thank God we had screenings on the 16th itself here, theater was half full, if you cant get tickets, try some far away theater people rarely go to :p I wish I could see the IMAX version, but we have a dead IMAX theater here, useless dead useless wonder why they build it if they dont screen feature films there in Imax format.
Ok the movie, it is more than you'll ever want, more than you'll ever expect, more that what you have ever watched this year, and Joker...made me speechless. It does transcend the comic book genre, after all Batman is not a superhero, he is a real hero, anti-hero, lost soul. Call him whatever you want, but we can probably identify more with him than lets say...Hell Boy! :P
The cast, you can't get a cast like this even if you have a billion bucks and ooze Hollywood hype out of the..., Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Aaron Eckhart, Gary Oldman, Maggie Gyllenhaal (move over Tomkat, you sucked in BB) and an amazing crew. Christopher Nolan is the best director right now IMHO. The story is amazing, fresh, full of twists and not a moment of boredom. No letdowns here.
Read the positive reviews, believe them for once, if you have never watched a comic books adaptation before, well you can start with this because The Dark Knight justifies why comic book hero movie should be made to cast away the traditional colorful comicy world. And no, this is not the billionaire boy Iron Man wet dream Bruce Wayne escapade, this is the real deal. You wont be left wondering what will unravel in the 3rd Nolan-Bale Batman movie if it ever gets made, because there are no cliffhanger the size of Hollywood left in here. All issues are spread out, Joker-ized and closed.
Either you'll walk out of the theater smiling or shouting or clapping or heading straight to the box office for a 2nd show (or yawning if you're unfortunate enough to catch a 1 am movie :p). Satisfaction guaranteed. Dont waste time watching all the other lesser contemporaries, Hell Boy, Hancock...bah! TDK has real stunts, real explosions, minimal SFX, damn you feel like its your city embroiled in anarchy and destruction if you managed to capture the core of the story.
But above all, Hope lives.
And damn you're gonna love how the Batpod is introduced. You're gonna love it. :)
 The best movie this year.
