What do you think!?
about 10:30 i arrived at the theater, and sat in a packed house full of dressed up fanboys awaiting the most anticipated movie i think i've ever seen. Hype, everywhere, on every website, on every channel on every forum in every country.
So what you all are wondering i suppose is "did it live up to the hype?"
And the answer to that my friends is...........
GO SEE THE MOVIE FOR YOURSELF
With a little spoiler of my own i'll tell you that i will GUARANTEE you will not be disappointed.
I'm a Batman homer, i'm the first to admit it, but i'm not the kind of guy that raves about the guy just because he's Batman. Wouldn't be critical if a movie was bad or something was wrong. Was THIS movie perfect? No......It had its weaknesses and i'll let you folks figure them out on your own. But PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE go see it. It's flat out the GREATEST superhero movie of all-time. No question. No contest. No debate.
Problems i had with the movie:
- Rachel Dawes: Sorry Maggie, but it looks like it wasn't just Katie Holmes i hated. I think i just hate the character. I dont know what it is but i dont think anyone could portray her and i'd actually like it. She's Bruce's childhood friend, the woman he loves, certainly a big part of the movie storyline yet i cant just help wishing she'd go away.
- Sal Maroni: What happened? What happened to the mob in general? They're so dangerous and lethal but they dont even do anything in the movie. Falcone in the last movie at least was a threat. Eric Roberts reminded me of some kind of mob movie spoof. I was hoping for a lot more from him.
- Batman: Talking like he's been smoking for 32 years? I didn't like this in Batman Begins and now that he actually spoke A LOT in this movie i didn't like it even more. I could live with Batman not really looking like Batman, no yellow utility belt etc. But at least sound human. The bat signal still looks ****ty too.
Still an excellent movie, not perfect, not the best movie i've ever seen.
