“The Dark Knight” Continues To Impress Critics

Just eight more days folks!  That’s all that stands between now and the release of The Dark Knight.  With that in mind, I thought it might be a good idea to take a quick sampling of what the critics, the few so far, who have seen The Dark Knight are saying about it.

Rotten Tomatoes has the movie at a perfect 100% (11 Fresh, 0 Rotten).  Here’s a sampling from their selection of reviews.

This is not a Batman movie — this is a 2008 version of The Untouchables with The Batman as Elliot Ness, The Joker as Al Capone, and much better toys.
David Poland, Hot Button

Martin Scorsese’s The Departed. Michael Mann’s Heat. Brian de Palma’s The Untouchables. And now, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight can join the ranks as one of the best crime dramas in modern movie history.
Staci Layne Wilson, Horror.com

The Dark Knight is not only the best film I have seen this year, but quite possibly the best superhero movie ever made.
Brad Miska, Bloody Disgusting

Daring and uncompromisingly different from previous incarnations of Batman, Nolan hasn’t redefined the superhero genre as much as created an unforgettable piece of crime fiction within the context of that realm.
Edward Douglas, ComingSoon.net

And over at MetaCritic.com, the film is currently at an equally impressive 97% (from four reviews):

Beyond dark. It’s as black — and teeming and toxic — as the mind of the Joker. “Batman Begins,” the 2005 film that launched Nolan’s series, was a mere five-finger exercise. This is the full symphony.
Richard Corliss, Time

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.
Justin Chang, Variety

Bale again brilliantly personifies all the deep traumas and misgivings of Batman’s alter ego, Bruce Wayne. A bit of Hamlet is in this Batman.
Kirk Honeycutt, The Hollywood Reporter

No fair giving away the mysteries of The Dark Knight. It’s enough to marvel at the way Nolan — a world-class filmmaker, be it “Memento,” “Insomnia” or “The Prestige” — brings pop escapism whisper-close to enduring art.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

The Dark Knight hits conventional and IMAX theaters on July 18, 2008.

  • Simply the best superhero movie ever made…. The only thing that bothers me is… Wich actor can replace ledger?…. Ledger must have made Jack nicholson so proud with that rol….. Same voice, Same lafter.. same psycopath .. a pecrfect joker….

    Some other actor is going to be brave to spet in the joker shoes and be a perfect joker like nicholson and ledger….. and that in mind… Are we going to se Joker kill Robin???? Intresting!!!

    Jack Nicholson was nothing compared to what Heath Ledger did. Ledger was 100% commited. Nicholson didn’t frighten me at all. Ledger was pure psychotic.

    This movie was simply brilliant.
