The Dark Knight 
Oscar Worthy - The Reason Sequels are Made
4/4 stars

I rarely give movies 4/4 stars on first viewing, particularly sequels. This is an exception. While I won't talk about Ledger's performance as so many have I will say that it is as good as Jacks.

In my review of Batman Begins I stated that its main fault was not the acting or the directing or the camera, it was the lack of a truly threatening villain. It had depth of character, but felt more like a summer action movie than an outstanding Oscar worthy pic. The Dark Knight Has Villain and this villain is powerful.

The Dark Knight is Oscar worthy. Acting is absolutely wonderful, cinematography breathtaking, sound incredible, direction near perfect. This will make its way into my top 50, maybe even my top 25. Only a second viewing will tell.

I came out of the movie more impressed with Chris Nolan than I ever have. No longer do I think he is a one hit wonder. I can not say enough great things about this movie and chances are, you have seen it already anyway.

The only downside to this movie is a moment about 2 hrs in where the action and momentum come to a stop and you think it is going to end. Thankfully, it doesn't. Overall, the villains made this movie what the other one was not. See it, even if you are not a fan of the comic books.
