I was able to catch the 10:30 screening of The Dark Knight at City Center 15: Cinema De Lux in White Plains, NY last night and was shocked (and pleased) to see so many excited people lining up nearly an hour before the screening. The theater was packed, and there was an electricity in the air unlike that of any filmgoing experience I've had in some time. We were ready for The Dark Knight, and the pre-screening anticipation was warranted. The Dark Knight is not only the best comic book adaptation of all time, but it's also one of the best sequels I've ever seen, and may be one of the best action films in history. Nothing in recent memory even comes close in terms of scope or characterization.
Look for my full review of The Dark Knight on Broken Frontier later this week.
