I'm actually with @jax. I thought the dark knight was incredibly slow, boring, & not very batman- like. Heath Ledger did a great job portraying a psycho & Christian Bale is awesome but Heath Ledger's character wasn't like the comic versions joker, & Christian Bale sounds constipated. It was just too slow & dark.
I am really wanting to see the new one though because I'm hoping the addition of Anne Hathaway as cat woman will give it something the series has been missing, plus Bane is one of my favorite villains. Does he break Batman's back???!?
