Ebert on “The Dark Knight”

Roger Ebert has reviewed Christopher Nolan’s new Batman film starring the late Heath Ledger (in what is being touted as a possible Oscar nominated performance) and Christian Bale….

…And he loves it. Check out this excerpt from his review:

“Batman” isn’t a comic book anymore. Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” is a haunted film that leaps beyond its origins and becomes an engrossing tragedy. It creates characters we come to care about. That’s because of the performances, because of the direction, because of the writing, and because of the superlative technical quality of the entire production. This film, and to a lesser degree “Iron Man,” redefine the possibilities of the “comic-book movie.”

When will you see it? And what are your expectations?


One thought on “Ebert on “The Dark Knight”

  1. Larry Z says:

    The Dark Knight was indeed an extraordinary movie.

    As for Iron Man, I’m not sure what Ebert thought about it, but I hated the movie. A completely predictable story with the most unimaginative characters ever. Not to mention Tony Stark’s sudden change of personality, which was just unconvincing. Horrible.
