The Dark Knight

I can’t remember the last time I saw a solid action film like this one. The last one was probably Batman Begins, actually.

It’s too long and overly complicated, but otherwise enjoyable. It has some amazing action sequences, exciting fights, decent enough acting and character development, and Maggie Gyllenhaal (yum).

I have to admit, though, I’m a bit baffled about why it seems to have had such exceptional reviews. It’s a good action movie, but nothing more than that.
