Is humanity worth saving? Are we truly good people or are those smiles we wear every day a denial mechanism we use to cope with a universe that remains apathetic regardless of our needs? If given the opportunity, would we remove our hypocritical cheery war paint and tell the universe to stick it were it belongs? Needless to say, this is a superb Hollywood popcorn circus irresistible to most.

IBe prepqred for a long drawn out epic. The produceres worked hard to present an entertaining and thought provoking movie. The music at times drowned out the voices of the stars. The story line will be difficult to follow for anyone younger than 18 years of age let alone for those over 18. When all is said and done as to whether tiiy will enjoy the movie it is a fifty-fifty toss up.

When was the last time you saw a blockbuster that was impeccably executed and simultaneously thought-provoking, audacious and unnerving while consistently being fun and entertaining? Full Review
Dana Stevens
Nolan turns the Manichean morality of comic books--pure good vs. pure evil--into a bleak post-9/11 allegory about how terror (and, make no mistake, Heath Ledger's Joker is a terrorist) breaks down those reassuring moral categories. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Christopher Nolan has provided movie-goers with the best superhero movie to-date, outclassing previous titles both mediocre and excellent, and giving this franchise its "The Empire Strikes Back." Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Christopher Nolan's latest exploration of the Batman mythology steeps its muddled plot in so much murk that the Joker's maniacal nihilism comes to seem like a recurrent grace note. Full Review
Justin Chang
Enthralling...An ambitious, full-bodied crime epic of gratifying scope and moral complexity, this is seriously brainy pop entertainment that satisfies every expectation raised by its hit predecessor and then some. Full Review
