This film easily trumps any live-action incarnation we've scene of the
Dark Knight before, borrowing heavily from both the comics and the Dini
and Co. animated series. This is a hard, fast, driving, heartfelt epic
that draws you into the character of Bruce Wayne and makes you damn
well care. Batman doesn't play second-fiddle to the villains here like
in the other films. It's his movie and that's the way it should be.
Much has been said of the film's "reality" quotient, and I'm here to say it works. Nolan talks about how Batman's strong because he does push-ups, he gets around because of his gadgets, and by introducing each of them with a plausible explanation, we forget to quibble and go along with it. The technology may be fantastic, but it's believable. And, unlike the "reality" of something like Daredevil, Nolan doesn't forget his ideals halfway though and start having Batman wire-jump thirty feet into the air.
