      Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight is a marvelous piece of film making that is sure to make the viewer forget about gas prices or mortgage payments for at least 150 minutes. And with the film grossing over $150M in its first weekend, how bad is the economy

      anyway? But I digress.

      This is a ‘comic book movie’ but its different from previous films, especially the Marvel and DC films to the extent that The Dark Knight sucks you into this universe where most of the action that takes place could really happen. Nolan’s choice to use real world Chicago instead of some conjured neogothic Gotham backdrop adds to the realism of the film.

      The acting in the film is tremendous. Christian Bale is engrossing as Batman and fights valiantly to keep the other actors from stealing the show. Bale’s growl brings intensity ...

      to his role and again, adds realism, because Batman would be forced to disguise his voice, especially when working with others who may know him in his civilian identity.

      That being said, The Dark Knight belongs to the late Heath Ledger. Ledger brings a marvelous combination of child

      molester meets gangster meets anarchist to his role as the Joker. He deserves an Academy Award nod for this work. It will be hard for Nolan to top the Dark Knight for the third movie. My suggestion? Batman: Arkham. Now that has some potential!
