The Dark Knight is magnificent.

Ledger’s Joker is - as we’ve been told - a wonder to behold. Bale is, as always, spot-on. The supporting cast is perfect - just having a Rachel Dawes we don’t all hate throughout the picture was a major improvement. Even at 2 1/2 hours in length, the story moves quickly and never feels cumbersome or distracted. As a hardcore Bat-fan, the story was also loaded with wonderful nods to and re-workings of the very best stories from the entire canon.

Since everyone on earth seems to be heading out to see for themselves, not much else is needed by way of explanation.

    Unless of course one is a poor Belgian, who, by some nefarious plot, must wait until Wednesday to see it….
