Saw it yesterday so I figured I would drop a quick review to the folks of the Nation.
overall, it kicked ass.
Great action sequences, good sense of humor and timing. Great performances by Bale, Kane, whoever played the psychologist, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, and Gary Oldman. Kane’s performance as Alfred was quite good, his banter back and forth with Wayne were some of the funnier moments.
Katie Holmes performance was there, not necessarily something to write home about, but there none the less.
Gotham looked like Gotham, very monolythic and vast, not like the back lot of sesame street. The scenes on the glacier were impressive as well.
Wayne’s story leading up to becoming Batman was dark, displaying his personal struggles with fear and the memories of his dead parents, and how his obligation to saving Gotham develops…
I won’t spoil it, but do go see it, it’s worth seeing it on the big screen.
