The Dark Knight
Thinking about picking this movie up on the way home...stay up late with the kids watching it.
Is it any good?
Live each day like it is your last, for one day you will be right!
Excellent movie but NOT for children.
It's heavy and dark so your kids might have problems with the main character. It's a good movie for those that like that kind of stuff though.

It was very violent. I don't watch many movies anymore, so it disturbed me. I enjoyed it anyway! It seemed to go on and on and on.

Depends on the age of your kids, my boys are 13 and 15 but if they are younger than 13 I would question them watching it. Heath Ledger should win an Academy Award for his portrayl of the Joker. He did a better job than anyone has ever done in the history of Batman. Be prepared to be blown away by the disappearing pencil.

I didnt see the big deal about Kieth Ledgers part. Didnt really dazzle me after hearing all the hype about it. More YAWNS!!!
I liked it. Kid of thought at the end they should have shown the spot where two face was laying yet gone "kind of like Mike Meyer in Halloween". That way they could have him in another movie.
The Joker can come back, just in a different story line. I liked Heaths portrayal but I liked Jack Nicholson's Joker better.
I thought the movies was long and it kept jumping from scene to scene with no segway.
My wife was drooling over Christian Bale.
They have yet to top the original Batman.
I give it 2 1/2 stars.
I repair air conditioners to keep people cool when it's 110+ degrees outside.
I repair heaters so people don't freeze to death.
I shut down furnaces that are unsafe to operate.
Make fun of my profession, but dang it, I save lives.
