We went to see Batman: The Dark Knight the other day. I haven’t written a post about it because it’s the type of film you have to think about for a few days. Everything the reviewers have said about the movie is true. It’s extremely intense, gritty, dark and not particularly fun. Note I didn’t say it wasn’t good. It was a damn fine film. It examines what it really means to be a hero and how far a good man can be pushed before he crosses a line. The latter is the undercurrent that keeps the film flowing along for two and a half hours. It includes main characters and secondary characters. It makes you question where your line in the sand is and how hard it would be to get you to cross it. You might think it would take a lot, but in all actuality it takes very little. Just the ‘right’ kind of motivation. Like I said, it’s a deep film One that’s well worth seeing. If you have the chance go, but don’t expect to leave the theater on a positive note. It’s not that kind of movie. Oh, one final note, everything they said about Heath’s performance was true. It was utterly brilliant, which makes it that much more sad when you see him. Truly talented. He had quite the future ahead of him. 🙁
Have any of you seen the movie? If so, what did you think?
